Well, would you look at that. We’ve all made it to Friday. I’m proud of us. Especially you. Yeah, that’s right, you. You know what I’m talking about. That thing? You’ve done real well this week, and I reckon next week is going to be even better for you.

Most of the Lifeline series is actually on sale at the moment, but I thought I’d highlight the original, since it was such a special game when it first came out.
