This is the post where I both thank and curse Taz for showing me Drench Drench
I am completely addicted. *thanks*
Damn you! Both of you! I have things to do today...

Oh, me too, thanks to taz. And I can't get past 25 turns, so obviously I suck as well as being addicted.

Yep. I am deliciously evil.

So how far can you get? I've made it through 21 a couple of times, but never finished 20. Though I've made through the first level with 10 remaining several times, so it seems like I should be able to - unless, in addition to fewer moves, they also make the board harder? Maybe if I ever make it through 20 I can stop playing.

Can I stop playing?

Obsessed, I am. I should be working, making money, paying off the mortgage, but NO! I am playing drench, and I suck at it, because I can never get passed 25, perhaps because the overwhelming guilt that I feel because I am not working prevents me from achieving a better score.

Also, I think I have Drench synesthesia. I hate that lavender. I think lavender is a troublemaker, and a fake goody twoshoes. Red is very busy and I hate to disturb him unless it's really necessary. Yellow is that one kid in the class who's always raising his hand: "oooh, ooh, me, me!" I could totally hang out and drink beer with violet; I try to finish with violet whenever I can. White is a bit of an overachiever, a bit of a type A personality, but generally okay, and green is retiring but dependable and upstanding.

Oh thanks y'all. I needed this SO much. I don't spend enough time at work goofing off and there was a slight risk of productivity today but fortunately that has now been taken care of.

Also, I am awesome at this. Sweet! I like games that my teenager cannot immediately beat me at.

Darn you taz!. . .I honestly don't know how anyone could resist this (after figuring out how to do it).

I suck at the higher levels, too.

I'm drenched but never quenched... as a longtime fan of Cabeem, I was immediately enticed by the similar look but briefly stymied by the different gameplay. (In Cabeem you click on clusters on the board to score points and as they clear - if you're doing it right - you get bigger clusters worth more points) There's also a similar game (to Cabeem) called Valentine Crush with fancier graphics (hearts!) Right back atcha, taz.

Taz is teh debil, I tells ya.
I have been stuck playing Drench ALLLLLLL day (when I should be packing for our Fangsivin' trip) Octothorpe, are you or the other 'Burgh members up to a meet up? I'll be in for a few days. North Hills, mostly, with some stops at the new Heinz Lofts. I'd love to meet some of my neighbors to the North.

Taz is evil personified.

Can't...resist... Oh, addictive games, why must you tempt me so?

I can't get past 24. I really wish it wouldn't shoot you back to 30 every time you lose. Also, some day maybe I would like my life back.

I got to 23 today and did a little victory dance. And then I couldn't make it past 25 for the rest of the day.
posted by gaspode 24 November | 19:21
I can't even get TO 24... I think 25 is my best showing so far.

I think the look on my face while I play this game must be like that of old women I've seen playing slot machines at the Tropicana in Vegas. "One more, baby, one more..."

I got to 19 a couple of times. but only got to level 22. I love these simple games. ask me to play anything more complicated and I'm not interested, but things like this and tetris are pretty great.

Can't comment. Too busy playing Drench.

(I, uh, didn't notice there were levels for an embarrassingly long time. Since I noticed last night, I have not made it past 24.)
