About the Story

"TPA is a simple game which is designed to provide a fun learning experience for children in about the ten-year-old range. It will be of interest mostly to Jewish children and to their religious school teachers. TPA has a decidedly Jewish theme, and the correct solution of the game requires a certain amount of Jewish knowledge." (author's blurb, from The (Other) TADS Games List, version 1.2)

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


Written for ten-year-olds in religious schools, this game asks you to get rid of all the chametz in the house in preparation for tomorrow's Seder. Extra points are given for displaying knowledge of Jewish custom. Not difficult, but I had a hard time figuring out the right commands to dispose of the offending items after gathering them. Could be implemented better - for example, "Look under x" will reveal items that are not revealed by actually moving x.

SynTax
The game seems to be well written and I could find nothing in the way of spelling mistakes or bugs but I'm afraid that unless you have a working knowledge of this particular Jewish Festival or wish to spend a lot of time in research, then I think that you would find the game very difficult to get on with.

Your very first game. by DustyCypress
Do you still remember when you played your very first IF? How did you get drawn (and perhaps addicted) to IF and have been playing still? What was the title that started it all for you? I started with a collection called "The Adventure...

IF that centers around holidays by Molly
I'm looking for IF that centers around specific real-world holidays, e.g. Christmas, Hanukkah, Easter, Passover, the Fourth of July, Guy Fawkes Day, Halloween, etc.
