....represents a grandfather clock, complete with a cracked glass pane. Hickory dickory dock!

Yeah, I'm sure that everybody else realized that right away. But it just hit me. Call me late to the party. laugh

This kind of smart design decision just confirms my appreciation of the game's art.

... the mouse ran up the clock.

Thankfully, this was not a happy accident. Jerry Hawthorne made it known early on that he wanted the story control board to look like a grandfather clock, and the main reason was that poem.
