Sherlock Holmes was sitting in his library, perusing his game collection with his constant companion, Dr. Watson. As they were choosing which game to play next, Watson turned to Holmes and asked why there were five games kept together on the highest shelf, far away from the others. Holmes replied, “Those games are kept together because they have something in common…” Watson looked at the games and carefully read their names:
- 1914: Twilight in the East
- Advanced Squad Leader
- Cargo Noir
- Dudley Dodo’s Environment Game
- Playoff One-on-One Hockey Challenge
So, what do they have in common?
