What are these mechanical components?

I'm participating in an Alternate Reality Game and two hidden packages have been located that contain the following components: Package one: http://i.imgur.com/1jH4a.jpg http://i.imgur.com/MldGC.jpg Package two: http://imgur.com/a/br1Fr#9 Both were found on opposite sides of the planet and have the same silica pouch. What the heck are the metal components? None of them are ferromagnetic, despite the included magnets in the one package.

Sudoku-esque game search

Have you played the game The Heist from the app store? It features four different puzzle types. I am really fond of the sudoku-esque puzzle that uses figures instead of numbers and a different grid layout. Is there a name for this type of game? Can you recommend similar games? I don't really like the other three puzzle types and I have played all 15 of the one I do like. TIA!

Name that Game

I'm trying to find a computer game I vaguely remember. It was an indie game with I think top down combat with mechs. The main feature I remember was the weapon customization was done by sort of wiring components together in a flowchart. I can't for the life of me remember any more useful details, and it's driving me nuts!

Help me remember this web-based shooter game

I’m trying to remember a recent browser-based Flash game. It was a vertical scroller, overhead space-themed shooter, something I saw online within the past 6-12 months. You had a ship and you’d pick up weapons. Your bullets were meagre at first, and then numerous as you upgraded your weapons. The screen would fill up with bad guys, bullets everywhere, general mayhem that you could only survive with a constant inflow of invincibility powerups. What was this game?

What game is this?

I'm trying to find a game I used to play, just a couple of years ago. It was played in a web browser. There were no levels or objectives or other players; it was just you in a jeep driving around a 3-d racetrack set in a desert. It had a lot of glitches, such as falling down a hole that wasn't supposed to be there. There was weird music playing.

what comes after what?

How do you play this word game? It's like an oral exquisite corpse for 2 players. There is a cause/effect prompt that is always the same. Both players fill in the blank (player 1 says the cause, then player 2 says the effect). Both players simultaneously think of their answers but they say them in order. The answers are humorous but always logical, even if absurd. What is the prompt for this game?
