I have full confidence that if you all do your duty, if your observational skills are toned, if no hot-spot is neglected, and if the best hunting and clicking strategies are performed, we shall prove ourselves once again able to defend our casual gaming honor, to ride out this storm of 10 Gnomes sequels, and to outlive the menace of gnomery, if necessary for ten minutes, if necessary alone.
We shall go on to the end, we shall find them on the rooftops.
We shall find them in the trees and on the benches.
We shall find them in the gardens.
We shall find them through the fog and in the gloom.
We shall find them in the shipyards.
We shall find them in titanic abandoned warehouses.
We shall find them even if they retreat to the quiet corners of their hometown.
We shall find them in the water forges.
We shall find them at the chemistry building up on campus, where they do their homework.
We shall find them on the beaches.
We shall find them in the quaint village streets.
We shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, the gnomes somehow got hold of a tank, then our website, armed and guarded by the most enthusiastic, obsessive hidden-object finders the world has ever known, would carry on the struggle, until… wait… what? They do have a tank?
Well, then perhaps we should run away.
Yes, it's true—the twelfth and final episode of 10 Gnomes is here, and even Winston Churchill might be getting a little worn down by now. Mateusz Skutnik promised a year's worth of gnomes, and he has delivered. Whether you quit partway through the series or you're just discovering it now; whether you've ferreted out all 120 gnomes singlehandedly, or you just appreciate the pretty scenery; you have to admire the guy's follow-through.
Let's bid a fond farewell to our timid multitude of miniature friends. The next time you look out at the world and fail to see any magic there, just imagine a gnome hiding around every corner. Then imagine you have only ten minutes to find them all. Or they'll get you.
Or, go and replay all the 10 Gnomes games.
Thanks for suggesting this one, Mary!
