George Bush and the PDB

You are George Bush. You need to go on vacation, but there's this little PDB that's in the way...

(Needs java. Click in it, then you can type in it. If the text gets cut off at the beginning, just type "restart".)

I'm sure this could be improved in some ways. If you have suggestions, you make suggestions by commenting below, or you can add notes here: GeorgeBushPDBNotes

HA! That's awesome :) I love it.

for beginners, just type stuff to do. try to 'go west', 'examine desk', 'sit on desk', etc. and take condi's hint. it's not a long game.

As a big fan of text adventures or "interactive fiction" I give this a thumbs up.

However, I recommend having stuff you could play with in the room while talking to Condi. Also, including the possibility of escape via window would be funny.

'kiss condi' -- awww :)

heh... I love the window idea. If this gets popular I'll find some time to add more stuff in. The desk also has some obvious possibilities.

great job! I added some comments on the board too.

Release 2 is up... just some minor tweaks, including allowing for the possibility that the document was actually more than two pages.

Good point on your comments: Their "Clinton didn't do anything! There were over 70-long term investigations! We were only in office 233 days and didn't have time to do anything!" logic is all sort of self-contradictory.

Note that by the end of his vacation, he had spent more days on vacation than in the office. 115 days of vacation out of 228 days total, I think it was.

this is brilliant!

It doesn't let me tell Condi to shut her lying, overly large mouth!

If there are any partisan zcode programmers reading this, I could be convinced to share the source if you want to help add some new silly stuff. write here.

I keep typing "bomb Iraq," and it won't do anything...RUMMY!!!! HELP!!!!!

I like the gag when you type in "think."

How funny. That's one of the default responses - not something specially written for the game. Appropriate, though.
