Pink is really weak. You touch them, and they fall in love. They touch you because they fall in love and the effect disappears. Then the disgust and dismay of having their mind played with. This is an evil pill that only lawyers would love.

Green, sounds nice as long as I'm near the top of the food chain.


They'll either have a negative effect or turn you into some sort of deity.

Yellow. You can beat all the other pills with it easily.

These all sound so rad! except for the pink one


Can I take half of a green pill and then be able to turn parts of my body into animal parts. Like give myself hollow bones and bird wings.

I guess the red pill. Most of them are convenient in some way, but superhuman regeneration seems like a good ability that can't really be achieved through hard work right now.

I've seen several games like this, but this is the first one with really cool powers, imo. I choose the orange one, for sure! There's so much to learn! A couple of instruments here, a foreign language there, some party tricks in my free time, building a Phd level understanding of mathematics, after which I'll have an easier time understanding other data-based studies and theoretical physics, computer science, etc.

The pink pill is tempting, but there are two problems: first, I just don't think I could do that to someone. It's horrible. Second, there seems to be a loophole that a genie could have concocted, whereby the person might automatically fall out of love when I touch them, whether I want it or not.

The yellow pill is also cool, and it would make dealing with and understanding people so much easier. But I prefer the rapid-learning.

The black pill is not a good idea, personally. Hey, I can see the future! Just like Cassandra of Troy! Oh boy, WWIII is coming...

Red pill would be pretty sweet, I just can't pass up the orange pill for it.

The blue and green pills are cool, but not my thing, personally.

I'd choose the orange one too. Either that or the grey one.

What happens if you see your own death, though? It doesn't stipulate that you will see when exactly, just that you'll see the future up to a month in advance. That could be a really crappy month or less--just waiting around to die.


Death doesn't bother me... seeable by the 3 times I ended up in the hospital for suicide/suicide watch. Two of the times were from suicide attempts and one was when I got caught preparing.

I will welcome death like and old friend when he comes for a hug.

These depend on how much interpretive leeway you give yourself. The description of the pink pill makes it sound like turning off the love effect by retouching is a conscious choice and not something that automatically happens if you retouch the person, but I don't think everyone is interpreting it that way. Depending on how you interpret the word "job," the orange pill gives you immediate expert knowledge in all fields of study, and that to me seems beyond the power levels intended by the rest of the pills' descriptions.

The yellow and black pills seem to me to be the most powerful, but the data-gathering they both entail would make them function rather slowly. I think the black pill wins, because even if yellow-pill person puts black-pill person in a coma so that black-pill person can't see the future after the coma (assuming the coma lasts over a month), black-pill person should always be able to escape somehow before getting cornered by yellow-pill person. It'd depend on how the future sight worked, as well as whether black-pill and yellow-pill knew about each others' powers.

This actually gives me an interesting question: we know that computers can beat chess masters at chess; what if the chess master always knew the computer's next move? At first I'd think the chess master would just win every time, but if you're in a bad enough situation knowing one move in advance may be of no use. And how "dumb" of a chess-playing program could beat the best program given knowledge of that program's next move?



That's a fun little story; I like it.
