Win Stiffy's phone number, March 16, 2020
by Victor Gijsbers (The Netherlands)

I decided to gamble and have the IFDB generate a list of ten random games for me. Appropriately, the first of those was this little Speed-IF that asks you to gamble -- sort of. You can choose to cross the road or not, and if you don't, new prizes become available that might be either better or worse than the original. Given the slightness of the piece, you won't care either way.

Most notable, I would say, for being a game in which you can win the phone number of Stiffy Makane. Alas, said number cannot then be called.

Generic chicken-based speed IF (RR #1), September 15, 2012

Two-turn (minimum) speed IF game based on the theme "chicken". Some bad coding and grammar mistakes, but it seems a little bit more effort was devoted to this very short game than usual for speed IF standards, e.g. it is possible to ask the chicken about relevant topics, also endings are randomized.

Not much to see here, as is to be expected. Play and forget...

2/10 (which converts to 1/5)
