Thanks. The previous rejection comments didn't give me much idea on what I had to do to fix it, so I just spent a couple of hours trying to tidy it up a bit, hoping that'd be sufficient - glad it was.

Interesting and artistic review of an old children's classic.

I'll give you a personal thumb for the effort and amusement.

I stopped trying to read it about halfway through, but cool idea.
It reminded me of your Tic-Tac-Toe review.

Heh, yeah. What can I say - I'm an unimaginative person - since I did that one I've been mulling over ideas for a few other constrained-format reviews.

reading this review is infinitely more engaging than the game itself.
