Hit the troll with the elvish sword

On the table is an elongated brown sack, smelling of hot peppers

Webgame Wednesday: The Watergate Game

I'm no historian. I don't remember everything about the infamous Watergate break in. But I'm pretty sure it involved an elvish broadsword. The Watergate Game totally backs me up on this fact. At first a serious Zork-style text/point-and-click adventure game that casts you in the role of investigative journalist Bob Woodward, the game goes off the rails about the time the editor of the Washington post hands you that elvish broadsword. Hilarious, ridiculous and at times even historically accurate, The Watergate Game is something you must waste time on right away. Hint: I highly recommend taking Timothy Leary's drugs when you get the chance.
