The big success for North Star was Wits & Wagers (2005), which puts a whole new spin on the trivia genre, by not making the trivia element play a lead role. After all teams have submitted their answer to a particular trivia question, you may bid on an answer that another player/team guessed. This is a great concept, because it means that you stand a chance of earning points even if you don't much idea about the real answer. The game proved hugely popular, and rightly so.

Fate of Atlantis was praised by critics and received several awards for best adventure game of the year. It became a million-unit seller and is widely regarded as a classic of its genre today. Two concepts for a supposed sequel were conceived, but both projects were eventually canceled due to unforeseen problems during development. They were later reworked into two separate Dark Horse Comics series by Lee Marrs and Elaine Lee , respectively.

Fate of Atlantis is based on the SCUMM story system by Ron Gilbert , Aric Wilmunder, Brad P. Taylor, and Vince Lee, [1] thus employing similar gameplay to other point-and-click adventures developed by LucasArts in the 1980s and 1990s. [2] The player explores the game's static environments while interacting with sprite -based characters and objects; they may use the pointer to construct and give commands with a number of predetermined verbs such as "Pick up", "Use" and "Talk to". [3] Conversations with non-playable characters unfold in a series of selectable questions and answers . [4]

The individual scenarios converge at this point and Jones starts to explore the Lost City. He saves Sophia from a prison, and they make their way to the center of Atlantis, where her medallion guides them to the home of Nur-Ab-Sal. The Atlantean god takes full possession of Sophia [22] and it is only by a trick that Indy rids her of the necklace and destroys it, thus freeing her. Meanwhile, they notice grotesquely deformed bones all over the place. They advance further and eventually reach a large colossus the inhabitants of the city built to transform themselves into gods .

Chess legend and political activist Garry Kasparov said President Donald Trump is no match for Russian President Vladimir Putin when it comes to games of strategy. 

“Both of them despise playing by the rules, so it’s who will cheat first,” Kasparov told Politico when asked who might win a chess match between the two. “But in any game of wits, I would bet on Putin , unfortunately.”

Kasparov, who was a chess grandmaster for the Soviet Union and Russia, also said he wanted people to stop describing what politicians do as “chess.”

With a second win under his belt, Graham needs to console Whisper in order to move onto the next challenge. Speak with Whisper, and hand him his portrait , collected after viewing the tournament board near the King's statue,  to cheer him up. Now that he's autographed the portrait, he'll be willing to help you catch a frog . Take it back to the potion shop in exchange for a sample of the color-changing potion .

Before you exit town, run over to the baker and ask him about free samples. Unfortunately, the squirrels are blocking the path to the arena, so you'll have to appease them with a pastry. In order to give you the sample, the baker needs bitterroot . Run over to the forest just past the king's bell shrine and put your work order on the bolder in the first clearing. Attempt to leave the area and Maya will show up with the Crumbler. Once she's done, you'll be able to grab the bitterroot . Give it to the baker and he'll give you a walnut strudel . Head over to the arena.

Princess Madeline will lead the pack of squirrels blocking the path to the arena. Give her the walnut strudel and the squirrels will leave. The final roadblock is Waddle and a guard. Give the guard the two very cushion-y socks  Graham received from Acorn and Waddle will lower his bridge.
