Link of the Moment
It's Hot Death Uno! (PG13.) It's pretty much regular Uno, but with extra cards like "Glastnost", "The Spreader", and "Holy Defender". I saw the Windows Version of this game at the frontdesk of Tufts' Eaton computer lab. It hasn't aged well, cards sometimes fly a bit faster than you can see them. Still, the oponents are well done, with a bit of trash talking thrown in. It'd be cool to have this on a color Palm Pilot.
Quote of the Moment
"Life is like a box of chocoloates, a cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift no one ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this mostly undefinable whipped mint crap, mindlessly wolfed down when there's nothing else to eat during the game. Sure, once in a while you get a peanut butter cup or an English toffee, but it's gone too soon and the taste is fleeting. In the end you're left with nothing but broken bits of hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts, which if you are desperate enough to eat, leaves nothing but useless brown paper wrappers."
