When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

Cute little story that seems to nicely encapsulate the chase/mystery aspects of this popular (if a bit oddly-themed) game. Good work!

I'm not sure that this hard-working geek has ever gotten a session report award, and it would be a tragedy if he has not. He has pioneered a style of reporting on this popular game which is concise, informative and most important of all, easy to read. His after action comments serve to enlighten his "Constant Reader" as to the thoughts/strategies of the players involved, and surely have led to a greater appreciation and understanding of this supremely well-designed game. Excellent work!

If I were to look back at all the reports for this popular co-op that have garnered awards, I wouldn't be surprised to see most are of the long and detailed narrative style, complete with each and every twist and turn in the game. What I appreciated about this report is that it's the Reader's Digest version: short, sweet and deadly. It tells you everything you need to know about this game: someone is going to lie, someone is going to believe the lie and chances are, the humans will die for it. Great job!
