Mr Polack, "Mine Field" is a pretty old game Smiley and Nixon's version is pretty awesome.

Take a glance at the original here.

It's a nice game, but I think AAP is getting a bit carried away. 'Splendid originality'??

To Kylemc:

For all I know there, I said ‘splendid originality’ at the time because I have not known that the original Sinclair version of the game even existed at all..... until just now, that is.  Pardon me for that, I just gotta be more careful about my words, that is all.  Wink



And to Na_th_an:

I *did not* know that there was an original Sinclair version of Mine Field.... in fact, in all my childhood, I have never even seen or heard of it at all.  Ever.  And so, I thank you so much for bringing this to my attention, man!  Cheesy=b

You are absolutely right about Nixon’s version being awesome and all, because hey, I am all for it on that!  :king:



See you both again, and thank you so much for some fine references that I never even knew about myself!!

To all of you (this is VERY important!):

Right up front, pardon me for posting twice in a row here, because there is some stuff that I want to break to you tonight regarding this challenge!  Wink

Since the time-frame towards the December 2005 issue of QB Express took WAY too long than was originally expected, I will be very fair to people wanting to enter this challenge by extending the deadline to the forthcoming deadline of the February 2006 issue of QB Express.  Because then I am giving you some breathing distance in coming up with your 90-minute game in FB, that is for sure!

Be seeing you, and enjoy the extension!!!  Cheesy !

P.S. Rules have updated a bit for this challenge, so please see the top and opening post of this thread.  Thanks!!!  :cool:=b

UPDATE (on 1-16-2006 at 2:24pm EST): When I originally written this message, I accidentally misquoted the deadline timing.  Now, I adjusted the message to fit the proper deadline.  So, final word is that the deadline for this challenge is the *exact* same as the forthcoming deadline for the February issue of QB Express.  There we stand.  Wink

Pardon me again please for posting another post in a row in this thread, but I want to let you know right now that the deadline for this current challenge has just been revealed: Saturday, February 18, 2006.  That is the EXACT same date as the deadline of the forthcoming February issue of QB Express, as promised.  Wink

So far, I have gotten three (3) wonderful entries, and I am *really* looking forward to seeing more, so please refer to the very first post in this thread for more details on how to enter this interesting challenge if you haven’t already, alright?  Smiley=b
