** The game's creator/overlord, Jick, coined the term "dickstabbers" to describe the most speed-and-score-obsessed players--supposedly, if offered the choice between [[DeusSexMachina sleeping with the prom queen]] for 9 points and [[GroinAttack stabbing themselves in the dick]] for 10 points, they would always choose the latter. Not surprisingly, he deliberately added similar "dilemmas" to the game; in the hedge maze near the final boss, for example, you can follow the friendly floating skull and get free items, or ignore his advice and subject your character to painful traps and monsters just to save a few turns.
