About the Story

You woke up late for the Klondike Derby you stand no chance of winning...unless you and your ragtag, undersized patrol can pull out a win with luck. And a bunch of items lying around your room.

Game Details


Entrant - The penultimate not numbered Speed IF


Dash Slapney: Patrol Leader was a Speed-IF experiment. My main goal was to rig the patrol scores for some sort of fake drama and throw in a bunch of other silly jokes.

After seeing the game played through, I decided to add some user-friendliness and also change the endings based on which events you solve.

I thought some people might find the source code interesting because of the gadgets I used to randomize the patrol scores, and maybe it'll inspire some random vaguely similar mechanic in someone else's work.

I enjoyed touching the source code up, and if someone is on the fence about sharing it, I recommend you do--it helped me check off things to touch up. I'm also interested in comments about how I can organize things better.

I thought it was great!, May 1, 2012

I saw this game and the tittle interested me because I am a patrol leader in boyscouts and have participated in the klondike derby.

In the game you have to try and cheat to win events at the klondike derby( A scouting event in which patrols compete to see who has the best scout skills). I found the game very accurate.

I only took one star off because of some spelling mistakes I noticed.

Great game sequels by Teaspoon
Whilst writing a review of "All Alone", Joey Jones's sequel to his game "If I Wasn't Shy", I became curious - how many examples of sequels are there in IF? Preferably good ones.

Games with accurate (present or historical) settings by Emily Short
I'm looking for works in the general spirit of The Fire Tower or 1893: they can be puzzly or not, have a story or not, but they should attempt to represent a real-world setting as accurately as possible, and in some detail.
