Okay, Beexers! I thought this would take me a couple of hours and it took about twelve.

But anyway, here you go: http://www.textadventures.co.uk/review/851/

Note: You have to look at or examine the POTW once you find one to read it - and make sure you take them with you!

The first person to find all the POTWs and post their completion code here wins an actual prize! Night owls - you have an advantage!

I'll put them all here once someone has won if you don't want to play the game to find them.

[edit]Meaty has won, so here are the Posts Of The Week!

You didn't put "POTW" in your subject. It's all right - I worked it out ;)

It might think you're somewhere else. Do a "look".

Fucking Hell! Good work, Meaty.
Erm, now life gets interesting because the prize is "Pick one of these", so, er - I guess you could just pick your favourite charity?

A donation to The Bob Rumball Foundation For The Deaf would be nice. Thank you very much!

I struggled for ages finding POTW 11 until I realized you could expand the 'objects in the area' box at get given a list of specific actions to try... I'd being doing the whole thing with the parser.

Was 11 the one in MoS?
That's the only time I put the verb into the box specifically, as I figured it would be a bit hard.
I was also tempted to make Holly's drink screwupable so you couldn't give it to her, but I thought that would be mean.

Yes, that's the one. I must have scoured the whole game half a dozen times, especially after typing "DANCE" in the MoS didn't do anything.

Second in the cruelty stakes was having to talk to the security guard at St Pancras twice after the first message seemed to be a total rejection. He doesn't like Lion Bars or whisky? Not even an INFINITE Lion bar that can be given to tramps over and over?

Oh, and when I told Kate what you had to do with Holly, she said, "Ew!"

Top marks for your self description.

Ha! Skills. He's guarding the whisky, though.

I have however managed to get stuck by putting the whisky in the glass and dropping it (trying to give it to the bouncer) and it will not allow me to pick it back up

Score 8 and i have 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,12

I'll rephrase that - i found it outside Grim...'s work
there may well have been other triggers that caused it to appear there.

For dull reasons I was reminded this existed and I played the game again and it's ace.

I spotted a couple of typos though, and I can't remember the login to change them :(
