Poor Games you Secretly Enjoy

Yes, there's a specific tile that appears in the flooring whenever there's a pit -- once you spot it, it's so obvious you wonder how you ever could've missed it!  Here's a pic where you can see it just to the right of Shardan's boot:<br><br><img rel="lightbox" src="http://i46.tinypic.com/34no0t...
