You said, I played

Games and Gaming

So, on the day of the eighth, being a rather hectic Wednesday for me, I found some time to run over to random.org and I played the tnumber game. My first roll, strangely enough, was a 1. In a DnD game that would have equaled fail. In this game, hat equaled Rush, a puzzle game from the makers of Toki Tori, a game that I recall the name of and nothing else.
