One of the local DJs featured this game yesterday on her "ways to waste time at work" segment, and it's simultaneously awesome and maddening, so I thought I'd share:

Funny Farm

Basically, it's a word association / mind map game -- you start with the phrase "on the farm" and need to brainstorm words that you associate with that, and if they're one of the options on the map, it shows them. Then, once you get those words, you brainstorm words you associate with them, and so on, expanding the map.

There is an endgame to the puzzle, but I'm nowhere near reaching it — it has to do with reaching the four corners of the map, which I'm having a hard time getting to. (Surprisingly, one of the sections that's giving me the most trouble? "comic books")

If you're looking for a way to kill time, this is a mind-building way to do it!

Okay, so I got a few more, including opening up the two lower corner boxes:

Check out the Secret Headquarters (my store) website! It's a pretty lame website, but I did it myself, so tough noogies

Listen to WOXY.com, it's the future of rock-n-roll!


Done for the day:

For someone who's not playing, you're doing a good job Don...

I was resting after a hard night of pounding mutants into the New Mexico sand. It was a relaxing diversion. :D
Is there any way to go back to the original game? You guys are so far along, I'd like to try it solo for a while. But I made the mistake of clicking on one of your links, and now it just sends me to your game whenever I click on the original link.

I'd say clear the cookies for shygypsy.com from your computer...that should do it.

(Okay, just tried it and, yeah, that totally works.)
You guys have been busy ... I see there are only three blocks left that don't have any entries!

So I got to work, and now there are only two!

Gah! I followed your link instead of copying it, and accidentally lost all the progress I made.

I *think* I've recreated it, though...

Thanks, Alan -- that worked!
I just added a bunch all over, including the driving-me-crazy levitation connection.

"maglev"! Of course! I was trying variations on that, but didn't think of that particular word.
And we have the final corner open:
