So as the story goes……You are stuck on a deserted island (magically there is electricity for your computer).  You are allowed one game that you can play on your PC or Mac.  What do you pick? It's a selfish scenario as I wouldn't mind picking up a few games 🙂[Image Can Not Be Found]

Sorry all, you cannot name a multi-player game 😉

Having no idea how to make a telephone, radar array, or flying saucer from coconut shells mine is Oangband version 0.4.0e. It'd eat time and be easily modified without programming skills to eat more time.

Mmmm.... Zork because it would last a long time and keep the imagination humming.

 

And does the computer come bundled with Hearts and/or Solitaire? That would be helpful for when you're sick of being eaten by grues.

If I also had an internet connection I'd choose one with a large modding community.  Same game, but new every week.  In fact, any game that I'd want in that situation would require an internet connection.  Not for multi-player, but for d/l-ing mods, or info gathering.  Like The Stone or The Field puzzle games.  Hundreds of puzzles, and more being added every month.

Othewise, I can't think of any game that could hold my attention through replay after replay.  I'd get bored.

 

Edit:  Scrabble or Boggle would fit my needs.

Morrowind!  But that was expected.

 

I also wouldn't mind some of the old SSI Dungeons and Dragons games, like Death Knights of Krynn, or Secret of the Silver Baldes.  Man, I used to play those games all the time.  And they seemed to take forever.

 

Oh, and while we're talking about Krynn, I could also be happy with War of the Lance - at least I'd get a lot of replay out of it by changing the settings etc.  I always have fun trying to recruit the traditionally evil races, like the Ogres and Minotaurs.  It'd be nice if they fought on the side of good a little more often.

 

Any of those I'd be ok with, just depends which arrived first in the survival kit.

Prisma Pix has held my interest longer than just about any game. All adventure, RPG, etc., games are one-time-only plays for me.

I love, LOVE, my Wurdle app for iPhone and Touch.  Very customizable for field color, number of tiles, minimum word length, game time.  I'm hooked on 7x7 tiles which allows for very long words - you can go up to 8x8, but the letters are small.  5 minutes is a good playing time.  I can spend an hour at it before I realize it.  Never repetitive.  Great fun.

May still have the notebook in which I listed every word I could find from the cube arrangement on the Boggle box. It was a weighted arrangement with an improbable set of long words. Same notebook I used to smoke my fellow tiny kids given the assignment to find all the words in Merry Christmas over the holiday break. Most had a dozen, a few few dozen. Teacher glanced at mine and said, "Oh my".

Harnessing that obsessiveness for something useful is an AOL page with the under construction icon.

I might take Planescape: Torment just for the opportunity to play it everyway possible.

I'd probably pick a word game too like Boggle.  With all that spare island time, I could create my own urban dictionary, not sure what I'd title it but I guess Island would have to be part of it. 

I of course would make sure I got Fed Ex involved to deliver it <looks for the airplane crash icon> [Image Can Not Be Found]
