Hmmmm. JTL is clever at speaking in riddles: "soft/online/relatively new in its category". I'm stumped. Maybe 'one of you two' can enlighten me.

I can't  :-[ 
So I have no idea if I've been framed or rather the opposite  :o

They sound more like what we might call 'quiche'. But how does the saying go? "Real men don't eat quiche."  :-X

That's why I thought she would know.  To come clean with you all now, it is this game that I started playing last month:

It is full of fun, but I expect you would think of it in contempt just as I did before I actually tried it.  Now, I am GLAD I did try.

 ;D ;D  I see, should have thought as much but since I haven't been playing much myself these last few years, I didn't. Now I know why you thought I might come up with the correct idea. Then on the other hand, this isn't my sort of game, really. I'd much rather go and slay dragons! I haven't tried any of those browser games yet, to be honest, always expected them to be kid's stuff. But they may actually have come off age by now.

Well, my taste goes down the other direction, I suppose  8)
