Thanks for reviewing my game The Mouse Who Woke Up For Christmas. Sorry you have been frustrated by wetting the stone, there are a load of different phrases that can be used, but you're not the first to have trouble with it, I'll add some more but 'use sponge on stone' or 'squeeze sponge over stone' will work.

EDIT: Oops, was half asleep when I originally posted this & didn't realise cchennn's Tumblr had already been mentioned. But anyway, the point stands: I've added links from the Tumblr above to the spreadsheet, but not the wiki.

Hi folks!

This is my first year seriously playing and reviewing IFComp games. I've written up reviews for my favorite choice-based games from the competition here: http://datalexic.com/ifcomp-2018-reviews/

A podcast of reviews of various IF Comp 2018 games can be found at The Short Game https://player.fm/series/the-short-game-73484/ep-163-ifcomp-2018-pt-1 on Player FM.

Games discussed in episode one:
00:08:39 Alias 'The Magpie' by J. J. Guest
00:18:19 Animalia by Ian Michael Waddell
00:30:37 Dead Man’s Fiesta by Ed Sibley
00:36:10 LETS ROB A BANK by Bethany Nolan
00:40:42 Junior Arithmancer by Mike Spivey
00:48:24 Railways of Love by Provodnik Games
00:56:24 + = x by Chandler Groover

I should add that some of these are rather spoilery. Also, FYI, J. J. Guest is not a pseudonym!
