    I got to the part of the game where we go from “silly” to “really silly” and it’s positively giggle-inducing.

    That said, I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    (I’ve met Samuel Adams. He’s shown me how to bribe town criers.)Report

    Our school system’s a joke. Just now learning that the guy from Assassin’s Creed helped us win the Revolutionary War.Report

    I don’t know. I think it’s a fair point. If you’re going to have a historical setting, it’s okay to add some stuff for artistic license, but you shouldn’t get key facts completely backwards.Report

    I always see the commercials for this game, usually played with a song I really liked, and am always interested. And confused. Is the guy some sort of Native American ninja running around and killing people during the American Revolution? Not that it needs to make sense because even THAT is pretty awesome.

    Of course, I’m still trying to figure out how to get Minesweeper on my Mac so, I’m not the best judge of gaming…Report

      Not only is the guy some sort of Native American ninja running around and killing people during the American Revolution, he’s doing it as part of a hidden conspiracy in a war against the Templars that goes back millennia to the First Peoples.Report

        This is rather confusing to me, because I’m used to First Peoples being understood as an alternate term for Native Americans/First Nations rather than a crazy theory about prehistory.Report
