Would that be best? I don't mind, I thought I'd let you work out your own rules

Yep. Awful? Haven't played it myself but I thought Delphine generally made good games, like Cruise for a Corpse and Another World.

Yay, more maps!

7. is from
Spoiler:
Santa Fe Mysteries: The Elk Moon Murder

The (maximum) number of guesses per round should be made clear at the very beginning, as well as how long each guessing period should last. That way, the quizmaster maintains a bit of control. (Can we assume that every time you confirm one participant's guess, he or she may make another?)

Sure, I'll make a list of rules and add those ones to it.

8 levels of mazes with enemies chasing you (your pic comes from one of those), including 4 levels in the dark. A final puzzle that requires an item you could only find long before, was extremely well-hidden and had no reason for being where it was in the first place. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Sure, it had some nice sections here and there, but the awful ones are much more memorable.

And since we're on the topic of awful French games, 11 is
Spoiler:
Maupiti Island.

How come? Are you an in-AG map expert/collector, or (just) a professional cartographer?
