Poopy Strip: "Oh! Is it 4am already?"
Posted: Tuesday July 8th, 2008 by

On the advice of Jerry (Tycho) from Penny Arcade, I went to Big Fish Games last night and downloaded the one hour free trial of Fairway Solitaire. Several hours and a charge to my debit card later... I realized I might need professional help. It was so late when I drug myself away from the keyboard that even doing a Poopy strip wasn't a consideration.

Sure I've stayed up later for lesser distractions and staying up late playing games or doing the comic isn't anything new to me. But you know a game is catchy when you have absolutely NO idea what time it is when you finally close the program down. And that's Fairway Solitaire for me.

It's a modified version of FreeCell with interesting little game twists based on a golf framework. So as you progress through the game, some cards become sand traps, some become water hazards, you find various clubs, and unlock new golf courses. And apparently that's exactly the right kind of game to trigger compulsive behavior in me.

So, go and play the demo. I won't say that everyone will like it as much as me because I love golf. But, I'll toss on a warning here just to cover my bases.

WARNING: Be careful, if you're anything like me, this game will draw you in and cause you to forget silly things such as sleep and/or your job.
