A "Where's Waldo" For the Digital Age

Uncle Roy All Around You is a game for Londoners that combines offline and online play in a unique way. “Street players” use their handheld computers to solve clues and find the location of “Uncle Roy” on the streets of London, while online players help out by moving through a virtual model. Unfortunately I’m in Washington, D.C. so I can’t give the street play a spin… maybe some Stateside entrepreneur will pick this up and bring “William Bennett is All Around You” or something similar to the nation’s capital.

Obligatory Disclaimer

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
