Two games featuring Jay and his friends with their big houses and fancy mansions. A pair of oddball adventures that have just enough cohesion to feel like more than random editor scribblings. Perhaps a bit of childhood wish fulfillment in the idea of growing up and you and all your friends live in the same neighborhood and have mansions.

The gameplay is pretty much whatever Jay feels like on any given board. In the first game, this means a lot of ping-pong-paths and maes. The second game does a better job of creating a goal for the player by requiring them to blow up all these mansions in order to keep Jay and friends from conquering the world. Though at the same time the game leans in heavily on taking boards out of Tour and passing them off as Jay originals.

Weird games that probably meant more to the author and his friends than they do to strangers exploring them nearly two decades later.
