For those of you with an iPhone you MUST get this app. It is called ‘Epic Win’ and it is basically a To-Do list in the form of an RPG. You pick a character (I am the warrior princess, Jildo) and start writing down all those shit things you don’t want to do.
My list currently consists of: Do washing, go jogging, worm Logan, get new passport, go on Turd Patrol (Billy keeps calling me the Turd Dodger so I have set aside an hour next week to patrol the back garden in search of stray cables the dog has laid when I haven’t been looking………….I know you want my life but you can’t have it). You then assign each task to a trait, e.g. Strength, stamina, social, intellect or spirit.
As you complete the tasks you gain experience points, your character levels up – I am now the Wench of Undesirable Tasks – and you pick up loot as you travel further throughout the land. It’s fucking amazing!! It makes me want to do stuff!! It’s worth noting that I don’t think anything actually happens in the game; there’s no boss, no end, pretty much no storyline but it does enough to trick me into getting excited when the washing basket fills up. As a result, this is getting a massive 4 fists from me.
(As you can see, I have developed a new, highly complex scoring system – The Fist List – the better the product, the more it will get fisted by me).
