I like the idea of a rebus quiz, diego. But it’s too hard for me.  Embarassed

Like the rubuses. But chapter titles, that’s hard.  Gasp
I’ll send a few wild, and not so wild, guesses anyway.

It’s mostly a rebus-by-association, which makes it very hard. And a bit unfair.

So be it. Long gone are the days when my quizzes were over in less than a day. Revenge of the evil rebuses. Naughty  BTW, no one got the title pun? Cry (I planned Chapter 2, but since everyone is so “thrilled” with these rebuses…)

Day Two

WHAT?!?

I spent so much time trying to figure out your hints! Boy, do I resent this kind of joke. You’ve lost me as a participant in your next quiz. My solutions were just as acceptable as your absurd Day Two.

And the Skull of Yorick (yes, that’s how it’s spelled) is a CHAPTER? Please provide a screenshot of that chapter title in the game! No, I’ll make it even easier for you: post a screenshot of ANY chapter in Zork GI!  Angry

EDIT: I’m not going to check, but looking at the answers I think that none of the five “chapters” I missed are chapters at all.

I know. That’s why I prepared a:

Behind the Scenes Special!

8. HandsFree had come up with an observant Upon Reflection from L.A. Noire

1. chrissie thought of “Into the Lion’s Den” from Lost Horizon.

4. chrissie deductively figured it’s “There and Back Again” from The Longest Journey.

3. Karlok had come up with a smart “The Day After” from Indigo Prophecy, and (I admit, brilliant) 201 from Dreamfall.

9. Tim had come up with a witty Mel Gubson from… err, well if it was a chapter he would have gotten 10 points. Tongue

So you haven’t played the games. Some are actual chapter titles, some are headers in a walkthrough??? And thanks for pointing me to a site that I don’t want to visit because my site advisor tells me not to go there.

Anyway, hats off to the participants who didn’t take “chapter name” literally.

I don’t need a link to a Zork GI walkthrough, I know the game by heart.

EDIT: Sorry for flying off the handle, Diego. I know you put a lot of effort in your quizzes.
