Ha! When I was a kid I had some (4?) of those, plus the previous flat three-dial cards. I don’t remember the game, so maybe we got them second hand somewhere without the rest of it - I never knew what they originally came with. I think I stuck them on my bedroom wall when my bed was a spaceship.

We did something very similar at UpMyStreet.com back in 2001/2, using data from the website. I can’t remember if it ever made it into production, but I think I have a prototype version at my parents’ (for their postcode) which I’ll dig out next time I’m there in case it’s of interest.

Crossing over a bit with Cait’s suggestion of stand-up as storytelling, but on the drama course we did a bit about solo storytelling - taking on and differentiating different characters, capturing people’s attention, structure, etc. It’s great when you see someone standing there alone telling a story, performing loads of characters at great speed. (I’m not volunteering for that though!)

Hey, maybe you could call these people the Ditcherati? http://yoz.com/wired/2.12/cortex.html#ditcherati

This kind of thing doesn’t usually bother me hugely (cos I is a man and am insensitive to such issues) but why does the sequel not have a cast more like three women and one man?
