This one is a very professionally presented text adventure that many will find quite hard to solve. The modern day story finds you on Christmas Eve without having done any of your Christmas shopping (the lead character is obviously a man!) and you must get down to the local shopping mall before it closes, get the presents and get back home in time to placate your spouse. Might sound easy but there are lots of problems on the way including the nightmare of trying to park at the mall along with the hundreds of other guys who are all doing the same thing! Once you get into the Mall you need to buy eight specific items out of the hundreds available and you must buy them in a particular order! The author warns that there are one or two words not suitable for children and that some aspects of Christmas are portrayed in a cynical light, so you have been warned! Sounds intriguing though, doesn't it?
