Interesting! You could make a good little Flash or Java game out of this!

I wonder whether Mrs Reitz intends to keep everything in the cheerful zone, or actually follow the plot of TSH all the way through. The prospect of the latter is delicious: "Remember to stock up on Blood Red crayons, children!"

Given how light the material has been so far, I suspect there's some Grotesque Cute coming in the not-too-distant future.

I'm betting the people in this coloring book are the ghosts of the original protagonists, rescued out of space-time by the Min-Yan, and set up in a virtual world where they've reconciled their prior conflicts and are enjoying a pleasant Ascended Afterlife together.

Hmm. This could be an alternate set of this crew which came from closely analogous timelines but had a shorter, happier journey.

...with a few rounds of Bumper Mini Golf along the way. :kiss:

By the way, I like the course you've drawn up for Virtue. That's what you get for visiting the Golf course during Vacation Season. :twisted:

The game looks kind of interesting but I haven't really tried it yet. I'm not sure how best to try it with someone (perhaps drawing in paint and exchanging via AIM, as I know no one in person to try such a thing with), and I'm a little unclear about how the line drawing works- should your lines be straight and follow the laws of physics, bouncing in a way that makes sense? I'd think so, because it'd be way easy to just draw squiggly lines all around for maximum pointage.

Straight lines only, but angle of reflection doesn't have to be obeyed.

Yeah, and you only get two or three turns for each game, so you have to get as many points in as you can before the game's up. It's not just a frantic dash for the goal!

By the way... :mrgreen:

That's exactly correct! You got it in one!
