Skateball has one of the more confusing sentences written on its instruction card. It’s meant to describe how to do a relatively simple thing in the game, but reading it just sounds like a statement that has wrapped in on itself.


Bowen reads this sentence during the tutorial and has to take a moment to analyze what just happened.

I know I must have read it about 6 times when I first played this game, and I still didn’t understand it until I played the game a few rounds in a row.

No, I am not going to say what it is here. You have the watch the tutorial.

Also, shoot the saucer, and pray for “A”! That never works Bullwinkle, ever except for this case right here. Really, this is ridiculous. I am going to try this next time I play Skateball, and I know it’s going to drain me. I just KNOW it. <<grumble…>>
