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.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Just Too Much
After playing the sample of the game online- I was very excited to buy Tally Ho. I was quick to learn just how much would actually be taking place. While having multiple events in a COG is a must; I feel that this one had too many. I’ve played through three times and each time I’ve come to this conclusion. There’s no clear genre to the story. Is it a who-is-it mystery? A spy novel or a romance? All these moving pieces really complicate the story.
There are of course goods; I enjoyed the length of the story and how involved it got me choice-wise. I found myself laughing at certain things the MC or supporting characters did and there’s an abounding amount of achievements to unlock.
This is a very well written game with a lot of forks, you can play it over several times and end up with very different adventures. There are many interesting characters (including some you only meet in certain forks) and many options for romance but only if you want to go that way. I’ve played it twice through and there are still things I haven’t seen yet so may go for a third. Highly recommend this game.
