Spank the Virgin


While decluttering a drawer full of old papers, I came across a page torn from a newspaper dated August, 1996. The article I had saved was about a new game (CD-ROM version) based on the movie Monty Python's Quest for the Holy Grail, and the heading promised that "Pythons leave in naughty bits..." No wonder I had saved the article, even though I never bought the game.

I quickly skimmed the text. The specific naughty bit was based on the knights' visit to Castle Anthrax, and the sex-starved ladies therein. After you have navigated to that place, according to the article, you have the opportunity to play the "highly politically incorrect game called Spank the Virgin, a description of which is perhaps best left to the imagination".

Ooh! I can imagine!



I found a very old review of the game here.

Here's a fun reminder of one of my other favourite parts of the movie. Now, if I only had an audio of coconut shells horses' hooves...

Hermione - I had no idea there was a Monty Python game made, I imagine it is as crazy as the movie. I love the cat and dog picture, very cute.

I don't get it - but probably because I am not a Monty Python fan. YES, `tis true!

I am not ashamed!

Ally - I'm sure it is. I wonder if it's still available.

Katia - Thanks. I'm glad.

Fab - There's always a lot going on here.

Meow - That picture was a happy accident, and I'm glad I added it.

Greenwoman - Thank you. I'm pleased you stopped in.

Sarah - It would take too long to explain it to you. Rent the movie.

Hugs,
Hermione

Hermione--if you go to my blog and look back in the archives to January 29, 2008, you'll find a post titled, "Spank The Virgin" where I talk about the game.

The game is very old at this point and was designed to run on Windows 95. I don't believe a newer, updated version was ever made.

Pity.

Ronnie - I checked, and it doesn't look like there is a version that's playable on today's computers.

Dr. Ken - that's a great post! You make it sound like so much fun to play! But I'd seriously think about upgrading from Windows 95 i I were you.

Hugs,
Hermione
