#MicroblogMondays 128: Combinations
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
Justine told me about a game her child was playing called Little Alchemy. You start off with four elements (earth, air, fire, and water), and you combine them to create 560 other items — from werewolves to cookies.
I love this game.
I’ll admit that I cheat and will pull up an item — let’s say, the sun — and then try it against every other item that I’ve already found. You end up finding a lot of things that way. Most of the combinations make sense: Wax and thread form a candle (of course!). Others do not make sense: Sugar cube and campfire form a marshmallow (what?). And others are sobering: Gun plus human equals corpse.
Considering that I am not making actual candles and marshmallows, this app probably qualifies as a time waster. But it’s a really fun time waster.
What is currently your favourite time waster?
And if you want to try Little Alchemy, it looks like you can play it via the website.
