Whyvillians are always looking for a way to make clams. But sometimes the Salary Ledger games are hard, or Whyvillians don't want to wait a whole day for clams. Luckily there are 5 games that give clams right after you play! I'm gong to write a short series of articles about these games. It'll be a guide about how to play the games and how many clams you'll get from them. I'll also rate the game so you'll know if it's worth playing.

This week's game is the Time Machine game at the Climate Center. One thing that's really cool about this game, is that you can see what chatrooms looked like years ago. You can also see how chatrooms looked in the different seasons.

Click Climate Center on the Destination bar. Then, go inside.

Once you're inside, click the time machine.

Instructions to the game are at the bottom of the page. You can also click the speaker with the row of dots, to see the instructions.

Now, the first thing you do is pick your location. There's 2 locations to pick from: Whyville Square or Beach South.

After you've picked the location, say: take me to [month] [year] without the brackets.

So for example: take me to March 2000

Your date needs to be between October 1998, and today.

After you've picked a date, you'll see the temperatures change. After this happens, click the Record Data button to submit data.

You can only submit data for the same location on the same day ONCE. So I just submitted data on March 1998, for Whyville Square. I can't submit this data again. For every piece of data you submit, you'll get 2 clams!

Game Rating: 2 1/2 stars out of 5.

Well, it's a lot of hard work for a lot less clams. It involves a lot of typing of dates, and it takes forever to get clams. Let's say I want 100 clams from this game. I need to submit 50 pieces of data. It takes time to type all this data. If you've got a lot of patience or if you're looking to make 2-10 clams easily, then this is the game for you.

Stay tuned for my next article, about the Kinematic Attic!
