Only a perfect servant can solve a perfect mess! Being the perfect gentleman's gentleman or lady's lady doesn't make you an angel. Can you untangle your employer's knottiest problems with elegance and unruffled grace? As the valet or lady's maid of Rory Wintermint, you'll go head to head with recalcitrant aunts, light-handed houseguests, manage a fox hunt and corral exotic birds!
"Tally Ho" is a 600,000 word interactive comedy of manners by Kreg Segall, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
It's England between the wars, and the 1920s are roaring! When your employer, a proper young gentleman or lady named Rory Wintermint is summoned to their aunt Primrose's country house Ritornello for a weekend, it's up to you to make everything run smoothly...or not! Glide gracefully behind the scenes to arrange everything from the flowers to their love life, or leave Rory to their own devices as you pursue crime, adventure, and romance! Will you lie, cheat, and steal to ensure your employer's happiness, or will you insist upon personal integrity?
• Play as male, female, or nonbinary; gay, straight, or bi, and even poly.
• Help Rory sort out their love life, or sabotage it utterly.
• Solve the case of a mysterious sneak-thief--or join them on a crime spree.
• Aid spies, evade the law, calm flighty flappers, and unruffle Aunt Primrose.
• Win an Exotic Animal Show and a boat race fairly, or cheat!
• Dance the lindy hop, or a graceful waltz—or just tut disapprovingly.
• Ride trains, motorcycles, zip-lines, bicycles, horses, and rusty jalopies!
• Jazz it up in the Jazz Age, or remain aloof and cool as a cucumber.
You'll be swinging from the chandeliers or serving the canapes in this madcap, but altogether elegant comedy.

Don’t let the cover art sway you
I’m a big CoG reader, so I can tell you with great confidence that this book is one of the best. I’ve already re-read it twice and I’m about to start my third. If you like CoG books then do yourself a favor and get this book... My only issue I have with this book is the same issue I have with many of the CoG books- LAME COVER ART! I almost didn’t get this book because the cover art looks so cartoonish (which doesn’t match the tone of the book) and it really dampens my interest in what’s probably a good book... Otherwise, this book is a must-read for CoG fans.
A MUST read!!!
It’s so witty and quite frankly, one of the BEST CoG I’ve ever read. I love this story so much and have read it over and over and over again taking different paths each time and occasionally rereading a favorite. As an amateur novelist I greatly appreciate the witty repartee in this CoG. I’ve become so attached to the characters because of how life like they are and how well they have been portrayed. Rory is a HOOT! I CAN’T believe the price is so low for such an AMAZING CoG. My only gripe is the occasional typo, but if you let a few hang ups keep you from getting this truly inspired CoG, then your truly missing out!
Cheers for Tally Ho
I don't often review games, but I simply had to for this one. I absolutely adored it: the take on romance, all the twists, the laughs. It's perfectly combined to create my favorite story since a midsummer nights choice -- And for this one I felt as though the choices had more weight, which I really liked. I hope to see more stories like this, and I cannot wait to play through again
