Badge Drop #8: Let's Review!!!

Fri, 08/04/2017 - 6:00pm

PHEW! Summer 2017 has been CRAZY GOOD so far! Full of long days, warm nights, and that odd, rarely-seen kind of weather that consists entirely of HOT, SUMMER SUNSHINE!

Honestly, the SUPERIOR QUALITY of this summer has us a little bit blown away! Never before have we experienced a summer so EXHILARATING, so POIGNANT, so SWELTERING HOT and RIDDLED WITH CONSTRUCTION. We deliberated for days, thought long and hard about where we could go to release our MANIC SUMMER ENERGY in an orderly and wordy fashion. Now, FINALLY, we've figured out the PERFECT PLACE to unleash our TIRADE of POSITIVE COMMENTARY about how good, exhilarating, poignant, sweltering and riddled our summer has been so far: RIGHT HERE IN THE LIBRARY CATALOG!

Please, we know you're shocked, but for goodness sake, contain yourselves.

Unlike your postman, your bus-driver, your boss, or your pregnant friends, WE WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!!!

Did you just read a book that knocked your socks into the stratosphere and left you with a burning desire to tell the world about your SPACE-BOUND SOCKS? Find that book in the catalog and WRITE A REVIEW! Is there a terrible movie that UNJUSTLY STOLE 120 minutes of your summer? DEMAND THEM BACK with some CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM! Got a really awesome story about how your DOG once did a ROUNDHOUSE KICK like CHUCK NORRIS? Save that GLORIOUS GEM for your postman, because IT'S NOT ACTUALLY A REVIEW and will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to help you earn those prestigious REVIEW MASTER BADGES!

If you find yourself OPINION-LESS, not to worry! This week's drop is bringing you plenty more SHINING NEW BADGES for you to LAY JUDGEMENT upon!

Thanks for telling us what you think and THANKS FOR PLAYING!!!


For Overly Tanky I've found the two exercises she focuses on, bodybuilding and weightlifting. Those clearly are not the actual code, so what do I look up to find the real code?

I need to earn some more badges!!!

Finished the Forest Hill Cemetery badge today - what a nice (but long!) stroll through an area that I've driven by so many times before! Props to my 4 year old for tagging along for the hour and a half it took to complete it.

We got really stuck for a while looking for the third clue, and in the end we finally determined that the first part of the clue was found in area 8PK, not M. At least, that's what it seemed like to me (maybe the GMs can verify). Just thought I'd pass that intel along for anyone struggling with the badge.

Another bonus - walking by Bo Schembechler's gravesite on the way to the 5th code!

@aunty and @mmm,

For the Overly Tanky code, try putting a space in one of those compound words when you look it up in the catalog. That search result will get you the code you need. Cheers!

Sorry, but putting spaces in between words for overly tanky doesn't work!! I've tried spaces in between different words and still have gotten nothing. I don't even know what the heck I'm looking for.


Huh, that's weird! It's a book, with a picture of a lady on the front. I found it by searching just one of the two words (with no spaces in the word), or one word with no space and the second word with a space. Good luck!

I don't know how, but I managed to get 5 of 6 codes for Overly Tanky. I am missing the first one. I don't follow overwatch so if someone could help me figure out what game the clue is referring to.

RE: FOREST HILL -- actually Yost is definitely in section M - there is an M in the ground marking the section. We confirmed the section with the Cemetery staff too. Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for playing!

Ann Arbor Stories is one of my favorite badge series. I love hearing all of the random stories.

Many of the badges this year are pretty difficult...
