Still addicted! This isn't entirely on topic, but if you're accepting ideas for updates, how about a "most consecutive escapes" stat? Granted, it's going to be affected by the difficulty at which one is playing. My record is 13 straight with the Smartass, no exited games, and all cards unlocked but Hoodoo Man's Camp (still can't figure out what I'm supposed to do with that order puzzle!) and Clear Skies, but it would probably be more if I were to wuss out and play with the Guide.

Such a stat would also be impacted by the fact that one can "cheat" by exiting a game that one is about to lose -- but it could either reset when one does so, or you could go one step farther and make exits count as losses for all of the stats. The latter might not be a bad idea: my own escape vs. death stats are skewed due to the occasional impatient exit when all hope is lost, and if ethical lessons are the name of the game, I really shouldn't be allowed to get away with it. ;)

That's very impressive, especially with the Smartass. She's tough. The most consecutive escapes is a good idea for a statistic as well. I think you'd have to make an early exit count as a loss though, or you could game it. We are also preparing a sort of hint guide for the Order Puzzle, but we don't want to give away too much. As soon as 1.02 ships we will add that guide to the FAQ.
