    To be honest, I don't understand this game. How is everyone's answer not just going to end up as an ace with a 15 way tie for the top (or bottom)?

    Well if it means I actually win a game, I have no issues at all with how it's run

    Well there's at least two questions that have to have fairly big sheepy answers..... it's where people go from there is the interesting bit!

    No - I mean overall for my new department ;) There is nothing in the north west area. But just in case... werewolf weeks - we back each other up right? :D

    Erm.... most of them anyways :pac:
    Wowzers! I had forgot how well I did in that one: 8th place :cool:
    That must have been before I started my great spoon run of 2021.

    I had two spreadsheets on the go :o


    And they still weren't enough, I had to resort to scribbles on an envelope (literally!) lying nearby.....
    Well there are two answers in a row that can only have one specific answer as far as I can see. I could be wrong though.
    This raises two possibillities:
    1. Setting those questions together was a complete fluke, mere happenstance.
    2. Necro is an evil genius who purposely crafted those questions with the aim of driving us all round the twist.


    I know which option I believe ;)
    That he's a flukey bollocks that got lucky its actually possible and only realised after the fact that he should've tried out the game himself first?

    Yeah, that's what I think too... :D
    Did I miss most of the first half of the Leeds game because I was searching for TV shows that end in a letter that pretty much no TV show ends in?
    I’ve hit plenty of brick walls in the few attempts I’ve made so far. Wondering if I should turn the computer on and open a spreadsheet. Notes on my phone is difficult.

    How long have I got?

    Should I be worried by how un-worried I am? :confused:


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,700 ✭✭✭✭ HeidiHeidi

    Ah stop the lights!
    I had to redo it coz I picked an 80s song instead of 90s and didn't realise till the end.

    Then when I finally sent it in Necs pointed out that I forgot the covid question so I had to redo the whole bleedin thing again.

    Anything I said previously is IrrElephant (see what I did there) now, as I've changed my answers, but for reasons of sibling rivalry, I wouldn't help anyway...

    And they've gotta learn to survive on their own at some point... :pac:

    I gasped and made a dart towards the screen with my hands to catch the baby in case they fell after they were pushed. :o

    That's what you have done to me Neckers with this game, I can't the difference between real and imaginary anymore :eek:

    I just realised that I played this under the impression that the last letter of the last answer had to be the same as the first letter of the first answer but that isn't the case, is it?
