About the Story

"Continue to believe it: you are not a loser.

In fact, this evening, you'll be a hero.

According to Article C, Section Eight of the Tennessee State Criminal Code, it is illegal for any person under twenty-one years of age to purchase, attempt to purchase, or otherwise obtain alcoholic beverages.

According to Deanna Vale, head cheerleader at your high school, the first person who can score some beer for her party tonight may sit at her cool clique's cafeteria table all year.

You are carrying an ATM card and a fake ID..." [--blurb from Competition Aught-Zero]

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


You're a self-esteem-challenged teenager trying to buy alcohol to bring to a party. Fairly difficult puzzles--the steps you take are more than a little extreme given the object, though I suppose it could be argued that it's a wry comment on the the nature of teenagers' quest for popularity. The game misses no opportunity to heap derision on you and generally display its attitude, which gets wearying after a while. There are some funny moments, though, and in a way it's refreshing to find something that really accomplishes what it strives for--i.e., grunge and lots of attitude. Includes a hint menu, though not a very helpful one--fake hints outnumber real hints, and the real hints are often partial solutions at most.

SynTax
This is one of the larger competition games with lots of locations to explore which need careful mapping. It has an inventory limit of five items and terse location descriptions, but on the whole the game is worth a look.

>VERBOSE -- Paul O'Brian's Interactive Fiction Page

This game comes across like a schoolyard bully, one who not only wants your lunch money but who wants to make sure you know that you're weak and ugly, too. It misses no chance to sneer at and belittle both the player and the PC.
