These rock. So awesome. Some of them are a little, uh...broken (for example 'Flag' would be far and away the strongest card printed in years and years) but that's a totally minor nitpick. Awesome!

Maybe I'm biased (okay, I am biased) but it seems to me like the solution to helping new players get an idea of how to task better isn't compiling a massive history of the glory days of sf0, but simply having a guide on the front page that tells new players about how to task better. I'm not saying discount the wiki entirely, but I do agree with Lincoln--it's never going to be a resource for the newest players. If we want a way to help the newest players, why don't we just make *that*?

Alternately, just stand facing backwards on an elevator.

hooray for sociology breaching experiments!

relet: it seems not evil enough because you haven't solved it properly. that's all I can say without spoiling anything.

teucer: That was a brilliant one. The answer was, I think, BOBDOLEELECTED or CLINTONELECTED and all the clues worked both ways (e.g. "Black halloween animal" for BAT/CAT). What's brilliant is that this allowed the crossword puzzle to be incredibly topical even though the lead time for puzzles is usually like 6 months. Awesomeness.

Fair enough. A few minutes after submitting this I had an "Oh crap, that was 125 points?" moments. But I stand by it.
