February 22, 2010: Buy Our Stuff, Or We'll Let Him Write More Ad Copy
This week I have two products that couldn't be more different. And yet, in three paragraphs, I must try and fuse them together through the power of advertising. How shall I do it? With cunning, finesse, and more than a little nonsensical rambling. So confident am I that I can link these two items into an unstoppable force for profit that I've even wasted the first of my three paragraphs rambling about the situation.
And so begins paragraph two. Here I would like to bring your attention to Pyramid #3/16: Historical Exploration. It's Pyramid, so you know it's good, but why should you care about this one in particular? Why, because you're a gamer! And if there's one thing I know about gamers, it's that they love filling out maps. You guys will map anything, and you're darn good at it, too. So why not run a game that's expressly about filling out a map?
In this paragraph, I shall write of another item. It's called The Stars Are Right Scoring Track. It's a game aid for (believe it or not) The Stars Are Right that helps you keep track of your score while you play. "Ah-hah," I hear you say. "He can't possibly link these two products together." Ah, but you are wrong, my friends. For you see, this item is completely free. So who cares if they're related? It's free! Just go get it anyway!
