Week 1 - April Showers - ENDED

Whether it’s a deluge or a light shower, a torrent or a gentle downpour, a powerful destroyer or a refreshing change, rain has been the subject of hundreds of songs, poems, stories, nursery rhymes, and memorable movie scenes. 

Adventure games also have their share of rainy scenes, and 19 of them are shown below.  Your task is to identify the games in which these scenes can be found and to send me your answers via PM by 11:00 PM Greenwich Mean Time on Sunday, April 9.  Each answer will be worth 10 points for a maximum total of 190.  You have 3 guesses for each of the screenshots, but each incorrect answer will result in a 1 point deduction from your total score.

Best of luck, and don’t forget your umbrella!

Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

I reduced the size of the pics so they fit in the thread without having to click on them.

The hardest was one of yours.  Grin

Heh.  I like the tie-in with your avatar.  Clever.

However, I am storm deficient, it seems.  I think I recognize a couple but I’ll be darn if I can remember the game names.

Thanks, Dara.  If you stare at some of those screenshots a bit more, I think a few might click. Smile

Lady K has the best avatar ever! It’s the rainy/stormy season here in the states. Woodstock is always prepared for the seasons and holidays! Smile Now back to staring at these…

Woodstock is my favorite Peanuts character, and, of course, he’s a kestrel on his mother’s side. Wink 

We’ve been hit with a lot of wet weather this spring, but despite having to wipe down wet and muddy dogs more often, I don’t mind it because it’s filling the reservoirs.

Here’s another storm update:
DarkEye - 140
Chrissie - 110
Eddyc - 100
Phlebas - 90
Sir Beardalot - 70
AFGNCAAP - 40
