The Flare Path: Do & Don’t #10

I was in John's office the other day watering April, his Aspidistra, for him (He was on holiday, and the nearest WC is a good 150m away) when I happened to notice this forgotten format poking out from under a stack of old issues of What Cat?. “I'll have that!” I thought, and into my BOAC hold-all it went.

And since I'm the best qualified to decide how everyone else is allowed to behave, it's only appropriate that I be in charge of everything.

Rules For Games: Do & Don’t #3

Six months ago I took over the world. My decrees for gaming are the result, and all developers and publishers are obliged to follow them. You can read previous entreaties here. Since they only began half a year ago we haven't seen the results yet, but any day now. Here is a third instalment of that which must be obeyed. DO: let me choose my…
