Tonight you're looking for love on Cyclops Island! You spend all day in your cave, only going outside to herd sheep. Have you ever tried to spoon with a sheep? They're not amazing at it. Time to find a fellow giant for a life mate.
On the wall is the magic mirror you massacred six sorcerers for. All you have to do is look in the mirror, chant the words "Veni, vidi, va-va-voomi," and eligible cyclops singles will appear in the mirror. Dismiss them with a swish of the hand or blow their reflection a kiss and you'll be instantly transported to a date.
When your quest is complete, it’s time to debrief. Join your fellow adventurers at the virtual D&D table we call the comments section. Remember, if you’re chatting out-of-character, keep your hand raised while you type, so everyone knows.
Discuss one (or all) of today’s topics in the comments:
👁️ Which cyclops single (if any) are you partnered with? Are you happy together?
❤️ If you’re currently dating, what are you looking for in a partner?
🐲 What’s your favorite mythical monster?
✍️ Bonus Challenge (+50 Points): Write a cheesy pickup line based on Greco-Roman mythology. Let’s keep them PG, so we don’t creep each other out, lol. I’ll start: Are you Poseidon? Because you certainly are a tall drink of water!
FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: PSYCHIC APPLEBEE’S
The Academy Awards are coming up. Adventure Snack was snubbed again this year, even though I’m pretty certain The Banshees of Inisherin was loosely adapted from last year’s “Monster Mash” quest. (I haven’t actually seen The Banshees of Inisherin, but I’m guessing it’s about partying with screaming banshees or something.) Well, not to worry, because we could win something far more online than an Oscar…
🎖️ Use Your Psychic Powers at Applebee’s is nominated for two IFDB Awards, which recognize outstanding achievements in IF. The awards are Outstanding Short Game and Outstanding Humor Game. Players decide who wins these awards. So if you played Psychic Applebee’s and think it deserves the distinction, I’d love your support by voting for it. (Click “Vote for this game,” then make an account. Should take less than a minute.) Who needs an Oscar when you have an… IFDBy? If we win, I’ll find out what to call it.
I was not lucky in love, but I'm okay living the cyclops single life. My favorite mythical creature is Cthulhu.
I hooked up with Alienus and now things are VERY complicated. Gotta get back to learning how to bring a large network of mycellium to climax.
