A Wizard Goes Shopping
by Kevin Jackson-Mead

A Wizard Goes Shopping is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2010 by Kevin Jackson-Mead. It was a participant in the PAX East 2010 Speed-IF event.

You play as a wizard, doing some food-shopping for your partner. You need a lobster, a mango, and a box of fettuccine. You doesn't expect to need any magic, but you have your spell book just in case.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
