Adlib’s a finalist!

So far so good, it was recently announced that Adlib is a finalist in Mochi’s Word Play contest. If you haven’t played Adlib yet go give it a try at it’s site

In all there were about 120 entries in the contest! I have to say I was surprised by just how many people entered. I was also concerned whether Adlib would be able to stand out in such a large crowd. So I’m relieved to hear that I’ve made it pass the first round. Of course, now the competition is really stiff with some really great games such as Clockwords. Anyway, I should hear back around October 8th. Wish me luck!

    Best of luck to you. Truthfully, I like Adlibs better than the vacuum game you entered for PAX10 consideration. Good work and good luck.

    Hey Kyle, I totally agree. I’m still learning as I go and each game is better than the last, in my opinion. That said I think I have my work cut out for me for my next game!

    Hello Alex,

    I think Adlib is brilliant and it’s one of my favourites!! I’d love some hints on how to achieve “owl saviour” more often. I think, most of the time, for me, it’s been luck, rather than skill! One time I was playing and the entire board lit up and I actually didn’t know what was happening. I would love some instructions on the more challenging levels.

    Great work. I hope you receive the acknowledgement you deserve!! Sara

  5. Hi Sara, thanks so much for your words of encouragment. Hearing from satisfied fans is one of the most rewarding aspects of making games! As to your question I would start by checking out a website I’ve create for Adlib:, specifically I would check out the Tips and Tricks section. If you’re still looking for tips feel free to hop onto the Chat page and we can discuss the game further.

    Thanks again, Alex
