Synopsis

Plot

The cantankerous Wizard of Wordplay has been evicted from his mansion and the worthless plot can now be redeveloped. The city regulations state that the demolition can't begin until all the items within the mansion have been removed. The demolition contractor has heard of your penchant for puzzle-solving and kleptomaniacal tendencies, so he hires you for the job.

All you have to do is find everything that's not bolted down and put it in the dumpster. Easy, huh?

Notes

4th place (out of 53) in the 6th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition.
Release 1 (4 October 2000) was the version released for the competition. Releases 2 (17 November 2000), 3 (23 November 2000) and 4 (3 August 2001) fixed various bugs and textual errors.

An unofficial port exists for the C64.

This was translated into Spanish as Venenarius Verborum by Jarel.
