Look away now if you are not drinking a cup of tea whilst playing a game of cricket. Part 2 of CDX is out now for you to point'n'click your way through, but as before it's only open to us Brits, possibly being restricted on IP address rather than by drinking and sporting habits, whatever I might say. We pay over 130 quid a year for this btw via the TV license, which is how the BBC is funded, although having said that I'm hoping that when the heat dies down on this game it's re-opened to all, as it was when it was first released [subbed by Nick S The Hamster].

My second link for musical Friday (woohoo Friday!), this is my absolute favourite track du jour, America by Razorlight. I've loved this for a while (off the album), but I understand this is the latest single release (at least in the UK). Enjoy.

Woohoo! (Musical) Friday is finally here again... First up today is Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, which is very nearly my favourite song du jour, and is Jennifer's current absolute fav (at least it was when we last talked about it, my baby may have changed her mind by now though, especially after I introduced her to the genius of Pink Martini). Anyway, absolute, second, tenth, whatever fav, it's definitely worth a listen this Friday. As always Jennifer and I would also love to hear what you are loving at the moment so feel free to mention what music you're listening to at the moment in the comments, preferably with a link to some audio, so we can all share in the experience.

Buried Treasure
The trickiest thing about Buried Treasure, even with the language I don't understand (Chinese?), is the load time. It takes ages. Anyway, once you start playing there are some keys to find, a door to unlock, all using your trusty point'n'click skills, a surreal frog hopping game that's seems to have no connection to anything else, and the ultimate reward, a chest full of treasure - which in this case seems to be a link to a Chinese (?) web site offering cruises, or possibly gambling, or possibly gambling on cruises. I didn't quite work that bit out [subbed by f00 via nordinho].

Virtual Curry's Haunted Castle
Virtual Curry's Haunted Castle is a short point'n'click game where you have to find, and destroy, Count Vlad (some sort of vampire dude) in his castle. Very easy, and very short, but don't be fooled into thinking you have finished if you get to the stage I have in my screenshot above - you're only done when the skeletons dance, you'll see what I mean [subbed anonymously].

The new online point'n'click version of Cluedo seems to be the game everybody is talking about. Well it's the one they're all emailing me about anyway. Looks good, I'll have to check it out when I get a chance, unfortunately I need to get on with some work now... [subbed by msmagrat, Melis, winniethepooh, Mantari, f00, charlie, jamez & dee].

Black Room 2
Want to escape some rooms in Spanish? Then Black Room 2 is the point'n'click game for you. Graeme's mental note: do not run this through google translator to produce a dodgy translation thus destroying any impression I may have created that I can speak Spanish [subbed anonymously].

Homestar's Escape
I dwank too much melonade last night... wherwe am I? Oh yes, it's a Homestar escape the room point'n'click game :) Two of my favourite things in one package [subbed by Max].

Tomb of the Mummy
In Tomb of the Mummy you must solve the mysterious puzzle of the throat lozenges in order to cure the Mummy's sore throat (that voice really is very raspy). Either that or I haven't quite worked out what I'm doing in this point'n'click puzzler yet and I'm still randomly clicking scarabs. I'll let you decide... [subbed by Nicop].

Noname Room
Noname Room would be your standard escape the room point'n'click game, except that in this one you play a trapped guitar player who is forced to play the same guitar riff over & over until you escape... alright then, maybe I just made that whole storyline up, this is actually just your regular escape the room game, but it does have a guitar loop soundtrack. So no need to practise your chord progressions after all [subbed by MsInterpret & Meeker].

Yoga Challenge
I suspect that Yoga Challenge is not even distantly related to actual yoga, but trying to stay upright by wiggling your mouse around is still quite good fun. How long did you manage to stay standing for? [subbed by H].
