The name "Mrs. Perkins's Quilt" comes from a math problem in one of Dudeney's books, this problem first appeared in 1907: "For Christmas, Mrs. Potipher Perkins received a very pretty patchwork quilt constructed of 169 square pieces of silk material. The puzzle is to find the smallest number of square portions of which the quilt could be composed and show how they might be joined together. Or, divide the quilt into as few square portions as possible by merely cutting the stitches."Henry E. Dudeney. I've added some important Things one should take on an Adventure Trip

What's that sound? Do you hear it? It's the mountains. They're talking to you. They whisper softly into your ear holes and taunt you saying "Look how big we are, you'll never amount to anything. See what I did there? Amount...A-mount...ya know, cuz I'm a-mountain. I'm a-mountain to something, that's for sure, unlike you." Then you climb it, and when you reach the top you defecate all over it. Now who's amounting to something?! Huh?! Nope, still not you, you crazy mountain pooper.

Adventure is a video game for the Atari 2600 video game console, released in late 1979–1980.[a] In the game, the player controls a square avatar whose quest is to explore an open-ended environment to find a magical chalice and return it to the golden castle. The game world is populated by roaming enemies: three dragons that can eat the avatar and a bat that randomly steals and hides items around the game world. Adventure introduced a number of innovative game elements to console games, including a playing area that spanned several different screens and enemies that continued to move even when not displayed on the screen. Adventure was conceived as a graphical version of the 1977 text adventure Colossal Cave Adventure. It took developer Warren Robinett approximately one year to design and code the game, during which time he had to overcome a variety of technical limitations in the Atari 2600 console hardware, as well as difficulties with management within Atari. In this game, he introduced the first widely known video game Easter egg, a secret room containing text crediting himself for the game's creation. Robinett's Easter egg became a tradition for future Atari 2600 titles. Adventure received mostly positive reviews at the time of its release and has continued to be viewed positively in the decades since, often named as one of the industry's influential titles. It is considered the first action-adventure and console fantasy game, and inspired other titles in the genres. More than one million cartridges of Adventure were sold, and the game has been included in numerous Atari 2600 game collections for modern computer hardware. The game's prototype code was used as the basis for the 1979 Superman game, and a planned sequel eventually formed the basis for the Swordquest games. The Easter egg concept pioneered by the game has transcended video games and entered popular culture.
