Car repair games?

Anyone else play them? I was replacing my supra's timing belt/water pump today, and realized my bolts had all gotten mixed up after my wrestling match with the A/C compressor, so i got to play nuts and bolt roulette with my car as i assembled it. Worked pretty well, i only broke down once! (forgot to tighten the power steering pulley lock nut and lost it)

When my dad and I rebuilt the engine on a 1988 Olds Cutlass Calais (2.3l Quad4)...he had everything laid out exactly how it was. And eventually things got mixed up and a bolt or two got lost. I think a few years later we found that bolt somewhere.

I use a Sharpie to highlight the service manual.
