Just looked at the list of Y games and text adventures on WoS and realised that I've never played any of them. To be honest the only ones I'd ever heard of were:

Yes, Prime Minister
Yogi Bear
Yie ar King Fu (1&2)
Young Ones, The

I don't see this one going quite the same way that the 'W' vote went :lol: :lol:

I would add Yeti (a decent Exolon clone) and games about Yogi Bear.

Agree with @Ralf about Yeti. If you love Exolon, you'll like it. Decent clone.

No more games to add, except for Yength by Dinamic, just for nostalgic purposes. Not the best text adventure (Dinamic made better works later) but it was the first spanish text adventure ever, if I'm not wrong.

Your Attention Please, bad text adventure set in a nuclear danger scenario, I had a lot of fun with its relative crappiness 4 years ago.

Yacht Race (Hill MacGibbon). If you’re into that kind of thing, it’s a decent attempt at simulating . . . well, a yacht race.

I know what you mean... as exciting as Charlton's Match Phishing, for example! :mrgreen:
