like Logic Grid Puzzles Only... Better

I'm looking for logic puzzles/games/systems similar to logic grid puzzles that are mostly deductive, pure logic, but that are more "realistic" or at least tell a more tangible story. Do such things exist? Also, how to construct your own and use them in a narrative structure? [more inside]

Can anyone recommend books on the psychological and/or philosophical aspects of game design?

Recently I've started working with a few people on designing and developing a suite of casual games. We're very competent on the technical side of things, but would like to spend some time reading up and trying to understand what makes a game fun. To that end, I was hoping that people might have suggestions on some books, blogs, or other resources that help people understand how to design fun games. [more inside]

Does anyone remember this old game that came bundled with windows 95 (or possibly 98)?

Does anyone remember this old game that came bundled with windows 95 (or possibly 98)? It involved walking around collecting different boots that let you walk across fire, ice, ect. I think it may have been called something like sim's sims or something like that. Pardon my lack of usable description of the game - I was 6 when I played it, so my memory is a bit fuzzy. Thanks! -Charlie

Is there software that will time my game play?

Is there a timer that will keep track of how much I spend on a game? I use games to practice my typing and I want to log my practice hours. I've googled the subject, and what I've found is programs that turn the game off after a certain time has passed. I want to play MORE, not less. Is there something out there that will do that?

Does anyone know where in the UK I can buy sheets of blank (on both sides) printable playing cards, similar to the ones from the US site 'www.plaincards.com'? I want to print out a home-designed card wargame and perforated card sheets would make life so much easier! Thanks in advance...

What's the online equivalent of a dozen Playmobil dudes?

I'm looking for the online equivalent of a dollhouse, or Lego or Playmobil people — a Flash/Java/whatever app that lets the user dress up a bunch of characters with different clothes/props/features/whatever and arrange them in a scene. I know I've seen stuff like this on websites for kids. The catch is, we need this for a psycholinguistics experiment we're running, which means we need to be able to run the app on our own server and record the user's actions (with consent, of course). Does something like this exist? [more inside]

How do you play card game: Bomb City

A couple sitting next to me on a plane were playing a fast two person card game that looked fun. I asked what it was called and they told me it was "Bomb City". Possibly I heard the name wrong. I figured I could easily look it up online and get the rules. No such luck. Does anyone know the rules for "Bomb City"? It was a two person game ( possibly more - I dont' know ), played with a deck of standard playing cards including jokers. I think each person started with three piles of two cards in front of them with the top one frace up. Each game seemed to take 5 or 10 minutes. Thanks in advance. - Dave

Are there any games out there like these?

I'm looking for PC/Mac (have both) games similar to Indigo Prophecy and Shadow of Destiny. I loved the games because of the way your previous choices influence later ones, as well as the surreal and psychological aspects present. Both of the games have a similar 'feel' that I'm looking for. Any suggestion is great as long as it's not a point and click adventure game.

Help me find this game! Thanks.

I'm trying to find a game I played when I was younger. It was on the PSX (I believe), and consisted of switching between different animal bodies to navigate the world. The graphics were cartoonish, and you were a "soul." When you weren't inside a body you looked like a black spider, and if you stayed out too long you would die. [more inside]
