Sorry, for my late response but I was in Belgium.

I can't help it you make them far too easy :lol:
No, but seriously it was rather good. It took me some time before I realised the solution and I wasn't 100% sure. At first I overlooked your % . The part I did not quite understand was the statue on the photo. I don't know this place. Is he some kind of king or something?

That's Eton College. So Skeleton minus Eton makes Skel :)

As for the most recent game, I'll wait for others to join in.

The only game with bubble in the title is 'Bubble Bobble - The Adventure' but I don't see how the flying saucer applies to that name.

No, this game has nothing to do with outer space Image

That was what I hoped you would think :lol:

Alastair, good thinking :thumb: maybe the next clue will help :

No it doesn't! I got to thinking that it was a soap bubble and the spaceship was landing thus giving "Soap Land", but this new clue leaves me floundering (yet again).

Congratulations :thumb: That's exactly the right explanation of the clue. You've won!

Adventure Challenge Leaderboard :
1. Gunness - 5 points
2. Eriorg - 3 points
3. Alex - 3 points
4. Alastair - 1 point

For the ones wondering what the second clue is about:
-The game soap land is a parody on soap operas hence the picture of the opera singer Luciano Pavarotti.
-The company is Zodiac Software and the first picture of the second clue is one of the coded messages from the Zodiac serial killer.

Well, it's your turn now Alastair. Go ahead!

Great job, Alastair :) I honestly thought the soap bubble was some weird themographic overview of our planet!
I'll bow out of the challenge for the next few days (there's some oddball event called "Christmas" coming up), but I'll be back very soon to defend my position!

Same problem here, except I also have to come up with a game and some clues. So if you people don't mind, it may be a couple of days or so before the next contest is posted.

For some strange reason the same event is happening here :) .

Good idea, lets take a break until new year (and then we expect the most devious challenge yet from Alastair :) ) . Happy Holidays everyone!
