This week Seoirse goes fishing with the Night Fisherman and goes on a search for the Hand of Glory, Laura goes on “A Short Hike” through the woods, and then Tomas, eh, goes home.

We also try and beat the record for the most amount of times we say the word “Nice” in a sentence! Plus all the latest adventure game news!
