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.

There's some game on the 360 that exists or was in development at some point in the past year that is a strategy game using hexagon shaped "towers" of land as a board. I think it was turnbased and used words (but not sure about the words part - but I think it involved a scrabble like setup) Somehow you would "stomp" the hexagon shaped towers and they would slowly lower until a certain point then they would fall making the play area smaller. Anybody know what I'm talking about?

[Askingforafriendfilter]: I played a text adventure game on the Apple IIc (Apple //c, Apple ][c) years and years ago that my father probably got off the bbs at work or something. It may or may not have been on the same disk as the text adventure "Planet of the Robots", a text adventure which I was actually able to complete at age 10 or so. [more inside]

After reading this answer, I tried playing the programming-esque game Manufactoria. I loved it immediately. The first two levels were perfectly simple and didn't require a second of thought, but I keep futzing with level three (Robolamps). I seem to get very close to success over and over, but after 2 days I can't get a proper solution. I have no programming experience at all, but I seem to have an unnatural amount of patience for trying to figure this out, and think the basic concepts aren't challenging at all yet, at this completely basic level-- I just think I might be missing a crucial concept or two.

Looking for a mid-90s PC puzzle game based on a cube. Holo or Light or something -- New age/tribal music... I don't remember exactly how it worked, but you try to get the marked side of the cube to land face down on a specific square on a grid (I think the location kept moving, though I'm not sure). Anyways, it might have come with my old IBM Pentium as a prepackaged thing. Any ideas?

One of the favorite games of all time is Sky Odyssey, which was (if memory serves) a launch title for the Playstation 2. It was what could best be described as an "adventure flight simulator", in that the player piloted his aircraft (the default, and first in an eventual large roster of craft, was a bi-wing prop) through somewhat fantastic environments such as canyons and caves, and performed improbable tasks like refueling from a moving railroad, or piloting a plane with floats along an incredibly rapid, treacherous river. Can anybody suggest a flight sim (non-combat is preferred) for Windows PC with a similar focus as that?

Help me make a gift for a friend. I have a friend that enjoys shopping at the the Hobby Lobby / Michaels kind of stores, and she also likes board games. Help me adapt a board game rule set that would go nicely with shopping at such an establishment. (One problem, she hates Monopoly - so it can't be a Monopoly adaptation.) She really likes Taboo, but I can't think how to work it in with this theme.
