Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I thought he was running the prostitution ring, I didn't know he was just a client. That's not nearly as exciting.

    The headlines were far more sensationalist than they deserved to be.

    At least somebody got to print Spitzer Out.

    I just figured out that dice puzzle thing and now I feel like a complete retard for not getting it a lot sooner.

    It's really not a matter of how smart you are. I really think it's more how stubborn you are... the more you insist on looking at the problem mathematically, the harder it's going to be. I'd bet people with more artistic tendencies get it faster than people with more mathematical (possibly academic) tendencies.
    Except that there's a reasonably simple mathematical solution to it as well.

    Personally, I like D&D because I find OCD much more interesting than ADD.

    there is... but finding it via anything but brute force is going to be difficult, because there are so many distractors

    Have to say I'm ridiculously pleased with myself whenever I get these things fast, or switch round that left-right brain dancer with ease, even though I totally disagree with IQ style testing in principle.

    Stop helping people. The majority of the enjoyment gained from the puzzle is in watching other people fail to figure it out after you have.
