When I was first amazed so much by Peter Answers oh so long ago it did not occur to me that this game would be so popular that there would be people jealous of the virtual tarot success. But Peter did have success and with that I guess people want to get what he had. So this interactive souls engine, or virtual tarot, or whatever you want to call the game of peter answers now has some competition.
The first one I have run across is a complete rip-off of peter answers and it is called Ask Jud. Now what’s funny about Ask Jud is it works exactly the same as Peter Answers, it looks the same, and the secret is deployed in exactly the same way. Except instead of saying, Peter please answer you say Jud, please answer. One thing that Jud has going for it is it’s fancy Web 2.0 logo with the reflection. There is also this Ajax like thingamabob. Very high tech.
One thing that is interesting about Ask Jud is that it is a pretty new game and there hasn’t been much written about it on the internet, so this article will be one of less than a thousand that seem to be targeted to this interactive virtual fortune teller game of Ask Jud. One thing know about the internet is that there will soon be a lot more pages joining as people write about the secret to ask jud and and other similar games. There is something fascinating about how the internet just grows and grows with articles like this one as people (not fortune tellers) write about all sorts of topics of which they know nothing about.
Ask Jud describes itself as “The World’s Finest Virtual Tarot.” I will grant you with the fancy high tech stuff it does look pretty good, but really the magic in games like Ask Jud and Peter Answers is what is happening under the covers. Anything else is just makeup. So can it claim to be the world’s finest virtual tarot? I guess it can – we can claim to be anything we want.
But for my money, I would stick with the classic game of peter answers over jud answers if you truly want to shock and amaze your friends. Peter has such a nicer ring about it than Jud does, wouldn’t you agree?
