  1. This looks like SO MUCH FUN! But I can't. (I'm telling myself.) I hope I can do this next year.

  2. I see Raymond Chandler in there! My absolute favorite author <3 Enjoy your game!

  3. I keep finding challenges I'd like to do. Maybe next year - this one looks neat.

  4. Looks like a fun challenge.I am already in a 2015 group challenge for the year, but this looks like way more fun. I will have to keep this one in my back pocket in case I am ever looking for inspiration!

    1. Yeah...can't do em all. I wouldn't have done this one if it didn't match pretty well with my main quest.
