Help me help you amuse yourselves

If you didn't attend this year's Crossword Puzzle Tournament, you missed a fantastic multi-puzzle extravaganza on Friday night, written by Scott and Susan Weiss. (Scott, of course, is the fellow responsible for the three-way tie on Jeopardy!) Fortunately for you, he's posted the whole thing online. It's a quick, fun puzzle set, designed to be solved by a group of four in under an hour.

If you prefer your puzzles to make little noises and feature cartoon people that move around, then I direct you to the latest game from mad genius On of Eyezmaze: Dwarf Complete. It's a small but remarkably satisfying adventure game. Highly recommended.

The Terrific Menace of the Invaders from Audiogalaxy looks good too, but I haven't gotten very far into it, so I can't vouch for the quality of all the puzzles. It's been pretty entertaining so far, though.

(Game links from Jay Is Games, as usual.)

Since I'm never home to watch Jeopardy! I didn't see the three-way or the rematch. Did Scott win the rematch?

Alas, no. He would have if he'd known the answer to Final Jeopardy (or if the guy in 2nd place hadn't), which asked for the name of the person who said "What a beautful view" on May 5, 1961. Rose and I figured out it was asking for the name of an astronaut, but we didn't know which one. I guessed John Glenn, as did Scott and contestant #3, but the answer was Alan Shepard.
