    I know, but that's the kind of error message I get at that point too, a "not authorized to view this page" or something like that as well.

    Wheel of Fortune in already there. Or, did you mean more of that type, because that would be nice.

    I hit only one skier, should I climb down, search in the snow and punch the skier? Do I get extra points for doing that?

    Thanks in advance.
    Hi Kay -

    The red flashy thingamajig is your snowball aimer. So when you push down the spacebar, it will move from left to the right. You can't go back, so the trick is to time it when the skiier will be underneath you. When you let go of the spacebar, he throws the snowball.

    You go down to get the clock which will give you more time. And you have to run in the cave if the professor comes out.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks SV. I meant more of that type, as this version made me bonkers because I couldn't figure out how to make it let me solve the puzzle, so you don't get a bonus for figuring it out. I know there are other simliar ones, but the names escape me. *must go to more bars to check out the video game offerings - ok, maybe not*

    hepcat, thanks for your help.

    I didn't know I could move the red aimer and was just waiting for skiers to come close to the cliff. No wonder I couldn't hit any.

    I found out that for each skier I search in the snow and punch, I could get 50 or 75 points. That's a lot more than throwing snowballs at them but I got run over by other skiers and then the professor came out.

    This game is tough, my best score is 335.

    I didn't know about the punching! I thought you were being frustrated or something.

    To play the arcade games, you have to either post a few times or be a member for a few days.

    MotherSister, yours might be a permissions problem with being the Poster of the Week - I'll check into that one.

    You can also reach down into the snow where the stars are after punching a skier and get more points! I love punching the big boobed snow bunny! I can't stand her for some reason!
    Getting lost will help you find yourself.

    Something is definitely wonky with Space Invaders. Either just for me or in general. It just ends my game when I get in the 20K-30K range, no matter how many men I have left. Very frustrating. If anyone else had that issue and figured it out, please let me know what I'm doing. I didn't have this problem last week.
