I recently downloaded Football Manager 2011 from Amazon.com and my saved games are often corrupted and lost causing me to get extremely frustrated. What can I do to prevent this from happening in the future? Also, why is the software so buggy? I have never had seven saved games become corrupted in any game I've had previously.

The girlfriend and I are going to Hawaii in a few weeks and have a 10 hour flight. I'm looking for a fun, nerdy card game to bring with us to kill some of that time, something that would be fun for two people. We both like the Fluxx variants, but they tend to spread out which seems inconvenient for the plane. Also probably things that require shouting or slapping (a la Spoons) would be bad. Bonus points if it's readily available at The Compleat Strategist in NYC.

Penny-Arcade Filter: What's up with Episode 3 of Precipice? I seem to have missed some sort of news post or journal entry where they announced what was going on with Precipice. I really enjoyed playing the first two chapters. Are the next two just going to by Jerry writing them in word form?

Can anyone remember the name of a puzzle game I played via a yahoo group in the early 2000s? Every week, they'd send a logic-type puzzle that was part of a larger mystery. I never solved the last two, and I wish I had. I'd love to give it another shot if this game is still online somewhere. [more inside]
On a nostalgia kick I de-mothballed the PS2 and picked up a used copy of Half-Life. I was halfway through the game yesterday when I lost power. I was quicksaving frequently--practically every room (wussy, I know). Mystery: The saved game is still there--but it isn't. [more inside]
Probability filter: after eating the TD turkey we play the Turkey game which consists of tossing six dice. The six faces of each die are carved with the letters that spells turkey. Each combination of letters earn a different score (for example T U is 5 points, 3 Ts wipe all the points earned, etc.) with the first TURKEY being the winner. How many tosses would you need to spell TURKEY? [more inside]
Where can I get venison, moose, or other wild game sausages, either in the Seattle area or online?
Should I steam or let this duck rest first? For game birds, I've usually pricked the skin, quick-poached it, then let it sit uncovered overnight to crisp up the skin before I roast it. However, I've been using a new recipe for duck that calls for steaming it before you roast it (a wonderful recipe, btw). So the question is: should I let it sit overnight in the fridge before I steam it or after I steam it?

Hooookay. So I've been asked to play in a charity poker tournament. I'm fierce at craps and was a pool shark in my past life so it appeals to me, but I've just never had a weekly poker game or anything... truth is I haven't played poker in years. [more inside]

When I was in high school my friends would play this game that involved the following: take a wooden broom; saw off the head; saw the remaining stick into two pieces, one long and one short (about 4"); whittle the short end into a spike. Then to play the "game" you would dig a small hole into the ground and position the sharp end of the stake over it, hit the tip with the longer piece of the broom and whack it on the way up.

I'm trying to find a little Japanese flash game I found in either 08 or 09. It was a cute, quirky thing where you were a little sumo and you had to smash small things to build up your strength - eventually going to to smash very large things like temples and bits of mountain. [more inside]

I'd like to play the board game Clue either through a web browser or an iPad/iPhone app. Ideally I could play against a friend or friends where we sign in/sign up and AI fills in as the other players as needed. If the playing-against-friends part isn't possible, then playing against random people online or AI would be fine. I've seen a Clue game on the App Store, but it's "Clue" in name only, not the actual board game. Maybe there's a Clue ripoff somewhere that follows the same room/weapon/character whodunit format? Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.
