Does (Top Promoter) subliminal (Top Promoter) advertising (Top Promoter) really (Top Promoter) work?

If any game ever could actually make use of an Electronic version, this is it. I think it'd be so cool to type the paragraph number into a device that then read the paragraph.

Perhaps though, new tech would be better? An iPad app that you enter the paragraph number and the paragraph is displayed on the screen? You could even build in logic to handle the different decisions to be made.

I'd buy it!

I won't. I like reading it out aloud, at this contributes to the atmosphere. MAybe for solo games something like this would be useful, otherwise not (my opninion). Actually, I like dealing NOT with technology when I play a board game - I deal with technology the rest of the week...

I thought that programmers made tons of adventure games like this back in the 80s. At least I seem to remember some text-based adventure games like it for the Apple ][e.

We are getting ready to play today... My 13 yr old says, "dad, do they make an iPad app for this, it would be sweet to just type in your choices and read....."

Wish I could code.
