"Excellent! I knew that we could count on you."
He pulls a briefcase out from behind him, somewhere, and opens it. "We've taken the liberty of getting you a V.I.P. pass for this event," he tells you, handing you a laminated piece of cardboard with a metal clip on it. It reads "V.I.P." in large black letters. Nice!
He points to your waist and you take the hint, clipping the pass to your clothing there.

You start the song again and, luckily, it plays. Whew!
Stop it and reset it, yet again, then turn it off so Michael or the thugs can't blame you for messing it up.
Tuck it back into your pocket and keep on climbing.

You dial the number that they gave you on your cell phone and they answer on the first ring.
"Did he like the music?" they ask. You admit that he didn't accept the player from you.
"Can you see him from where you are, right now?"
No...
They ask you to get closer to him, to see if he's wearing a diamond pin on his jacket. You don't remember seeing a jacket but they seem adamant that one will be there "somewhere".

You slip past the security guard, who's scanning the line-up at the moment, and come towards Mr. Moore from the side.
When you report that you're standing practically beside him, and that there is no jacket, the voice on the other end says good-bye, and hangs up.

Oh oh! The security guard has spotted you, and he doesn't look happy!
But there's a much larger issue-- one that you obviously didn't see coming... Continue.

Perhaps it's a good thing that you missed the light-- there's a violent explosion and the rear end of the limo is destroyed!
The cops hit their brakes but run into the back of the smoking vehicle at a high speed, causing everyone involved to slide into a parked car and grind to a halt in a cloud of smoke and sparks. Continue.

You quickly realize that you've got three choices: Find someone in charge of security and tell them what you think is going on, find out where that limo is headed, or go through with their original plan and hope for a good ending to it all. What do you do?

Alert security
Follow the limo
Hope for the best

Stuffing the player back into your pocket again, you dutifully ask your questions about how long Michael is staying in town, and if he knew about Ed Wozniak living in the city.
He is completely perplexed by your questions and, this time, instead of answering you he nervously reaches for a red pen on the far right hand side of the table.
Seconds later, a security guard has pushed his way into the booth and announces loudly, "We need to keep the line moving. You! Out!"
He grabs your arm and tugs you out of the line. "Next!"
Well, how rude! You leave.

Now what? Well, you were supposed to phone that number and talk to someone about this. Phone? or Skip it?

You are hurled across the room as a violent explosion goes off just down the aisle from where you're standing.
You later learn, from the paramedics bandaging the gash on your arm, that Michael E. Moore and several people in line were blown to bits.

There was an explosive in the mp3 player, and the thugs must have triggered it remotely!

Whoops! You made a bad decision, to say the least, somewhere along the line. Start over (from the parking garage) or check out other geeklists

Keeping your eye on the road behind you, you finally spot a police car approaching your location. The limo driver must have seen them at the same time, because they pull out of their parking spot, abruptly, and speed off.
"Should I follow them?" the cabbie asks you?
You've got the feeling that something bad is going to go down, but...
Follow or Stay put ?

Trying not to panic, you carefully palm the player in your hand and run up the remaining flight of stairs to the door to the main floor.

Throwing it open and crossing the threshold, you can see that the place is packed, with all kinds of people streaming in through the main lobby doors from outside.

You catch a glimpse through the large windows of a black limo passing by the front of the hotel, traveling to your right, and you decide to investigate.

Like a salmon going upstream, you make your way across the room, opposite the flow of patrons, and you burst outside just as you see the limo turning left at the lights at the end of the block.

So much for that. Looks like it's decision time !

Whoops! Wrong guy!
But there is no photo of Game Designer Michael E. Moore on BGG...





You get into a queue of people, all waiting to speak with Mr. Moore about The Game of Good Cooking.
The line moves fairly briskly and you're soon face-to-face with the man, himself!
You introduce yourself, mention that you've heard that he enjoys Big Band music and then offer him your mp3 player.
He seems very confused and tells you that you really don't have to give him anything.
Insist that he take it, or just let it go?

Against all odds of locating the limo, you jog out to the sidewalk and take off to your left, then cut right, having noticed that the light on the corner has just changed your way to cross to go up the block in the same direction that the limo was going (but a block over).
You dash down that street, hoping that the limo is making a circle back toward the hotel.
Bingo!
You see it up ahead at the lights, waiting to turn left, toward you.
Slipping behind a rack of clothing outside of a dress shop, you watch it approach-- you're well hidden-- stop and park, midway down the block in front of a blue car that is parked just past the entrance to the alley.
Interesting... Watch closely.

You slip the buds into your ears and push the "play" button.
An orchestra starts playing. Lots of horns, kind of catchy, actually.
Then, suddenly, nothing.
Whoops! Did you break it?
You flip it over to see what might be wrong-- as if you'd know!
Piece of junk!
It does look like there's a screw missing on the back panel, however.
Open up the loose panel, or push the "previous track" button and get it back to the start of the song, at least?Reset song

You've done what you were supposed to do but you figure that one phone call to them will be enough, and you'll do that when you're ready to leave the gamecon.

So you stop at a few exhibits, then wander outside of the main room, into the other areas, to pick up some food and a few souvenirs.
Suddenly, your world is rocked....

Two women have just walked out of a shop, in front of you! You get up close behind them-- not close enough to frighten them, of course-- and use them as a shield until there is just one car between you and the limo.

You dive down behind the blue car and wait.
So far you're safe.
You peek around and see the limo still parked there.

It's go time! You crawl around the parked car and stay low as you reach the limo's rear end.
You take the mp3 player out of your pocket and reach up under the car's back bumper with it in your hand. There's a small ledge on the metal bumper, so you deposit the player there and then crawl back to your original hiding place.

Pausing only a second upon your return, you run across the sidewalk, duck into the alleyway, and take off, at a run.

Did it!

Perhaps it's a good thing that you stayed put.
As the limo and the cops cross through the light and to the other side of the intersection, there's a violent explosion and the rear end of the limo is destroyed!
The cops hit their brakes but they crash into the back of the smoking vehicle at a high speed, causing everyone involved to slide into an unlucky parked car and it all grinds to a halt in a cloud of smoke and sparks.

See what happens, next.

You open the stairwell door on the main floor and pass through it.
The place is packed, with people streaming in through the main lobby doors all headed to the escalator that takes you up to the mezzanine level where the event is being held.
At the front of the escalator is a sign with a picture of a man playing a game. The caption reads, 'Today only: Meet Michael E. Moore -- the designer of "The Game of Good Cooking".'
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2109

Oh! You thought that it was the controversial film maker that they wanted to talk to.
In fact, you're not so sure that they haven't made the same mistake, but who are you to say? They got you a free pass to this gig, so where's the harm?

Go to the UP escalator.

"Here's an mp3 player and earphones, loaded up with "Big Band" songs from the '30s and '40s. Give that to Mr. Moore-- he's a big fan of that kind of music, supposedly-- and I'm sure he'd be thrilled to have it."

'Gee, that's a really odd thing to give someone...', you think.
Oh well, whatever.

You stuff it into a pocket just as he hands you what looks to be a business card. It has a phone number, written in black felt pen, on it, but nothing else.
"Call that number, right away, after you've talked to him. Then you can call it again when you're ready to leave. We'll meet you at the front of the building about a minute later."

"So, any questions?" Yes or No.

After a torturous amount of time spent waiting here, the head of security comes back to his office to talk to you.
"I hope that you're right about that mp3 player being the only explosive here," he tells you. "We've evacuated the building and put Mr. Moore into a special vehicle to take him to safety. I'm going to take you outside, now, and leave you with the police. They will be in charge of the sweep for another possible bomb in the hotel, and they say that they've hopefully disarmed and quarantined your player."

That sounds good...

Joining into the line of people headed for the escalator, you are soon on your way up to the reception area of the mezzanine.
The volunteers at a table take a quick look at your V.I.P. badge and wave you through. You're in!

There are booths and people everywhere. It's noisier than a kids' birthday party!
You spot a couple of guys, walking toward you, holding bags of games and figure they must have been to a few booths by now. You ask them if they know where Mr. Moore is at. They point down a busy aisle.
They notice that you don't have any samples or bags with you and give suggestions of what else that you should look at.
After a brief conversation, you discover that they're impressed with the game "Fzzzt!", at a booth around the corner, another called "Sumeria", and another called "Cyclades".
You decide to check them out (click on the links to the game names below--a new tab will open for each-- to do that for yourself) and then find Michael.

Your death was quick and painless.

There was an explosive in the mp3 player which was triggered remotely by the thugs who were sick of waiting for your phone call.
They figured that there was a 50/ 50 chance that Michael Moore had the player and if you still had it then they certainly didn't need you messing up their plans any longer.

The explosion also killed several other people who were standing nearby. You made a bad decision, to say the least, somewhere along the line.
Start over (from the parking garage) or check out other geeklists

At the end of the alley, you turn right and try to figure out what to do next. Having the police deal with the limo seems like a decent idea.
You hail a passing cab and have him drive half way around the block and park up the block, where you can still see them.
The limo is still just sitting there, waiting, ahead of you.

You get out your cell phone and call the cops. It takes a bit of persuasion on your part, but the dispatcher finally agrees to send a squad car out to your location.

The cabbie, having heard all of this, wants you to pay him, now, worried that you'll scamper off or somehow get you both killed.
You toss him a $20 and tell him to be ready to "follow that car".
Watch for the police.

You reach the landing between floors and remember the mp3 player in your pocket.
Something bugs you about this whole arrangement. Big Band music? Really?
Maybe you should just ignore it, or maybe you should listen to what's on the player.
Do you push play, or forget it?

"Absolutely!" you tell him.

He has to wait a second-- the police pass by and are now between you and their car-- but you're all going the same direction.

Suddenly the cop car's strobe lights go on and the limo guns it and runs the yellow light.
The police take the red light at full speed but your driver hits the brakes. Missed the light!
