  1. Gosh, that's late! Apart from a few catch-up phonecalls and emails in March, to check old friends were a OK, I have hardly been in contact with anyone for 6months. Not even sure I can be bothered to send Christmas cards this year.
  2. Here is a list of topic titles that have been used in the past, but the actual posts vanished irrecoverably during a period when transmission was interrupted. It may be of use when inspiration is needed. Some will have been re-used already. Please note that the page numbers listed do not apply to the game as it is now numbered. I will delete them later. Rock bands - page 69 Diseases - page70 British Actors, listed by forenames - page 72 Places in Britain - page 74 Things you'd like to ban - page 76 Brand names - page 79 Childhood TV Nostalgia - page 81 Interesting/unusual degree subjects - page 83 Phobias - page 86 Things to do when you retire - page 88 Something you don't see every day - page 90 Suggested titles for Bill's next show - page 92 Symbols of Spring - Page 94 Books you would rather not have read - page 96 Things you can buy in a supermarket - page 100 Things you'll need for watching the football - page 101 Things that wake you/keep you awake at night - page 103 Excuses for being late for work - page 105 Holiday activities - page 107 Things that irritate you like crazy - page 109 Things we love about Christmas - page 111 Things I definitely don't want for Christmas - page 113
  3. This is the New Updated List of Topics in the A-Z Game since it started - minus a few that got lost during a break in service, Originally this was supposed to be a reference to avoid a subject being duplicated, but that hasn't worked, and I think it's a bit much now to ask people to read through this lot before they start the next game, but it might be amusing/interesting to take a look at what we've 'done' before, if you have an idle moment.

  4. Yearning for cuddles with the grandkids.
  5. This was supposed to be a list of things for two people to do (at 2m distance). So far there seems to be a distinct shortage of verbs - ie: of "doing" words"
  6. And staying with the Covid19 theme - Things To Do With Someone Else At A 2m Distance This game was started 15 years ago - if it is still going in another 15 years I hope this subject will make no sense at all. Ambling side by side through a country park, but on opposite sides of the (2m wide) path.
  7. So, back to where this inspiration for this subject came from: Zoonotic diseases
  8. Sorry Luna - we've passed X. Now waiting for someone to finish the round with a Z
  9. General: Sir, this is the home of Lord Howl - it may have been in the forest when our plan of attack was made, but it could be anywhere now. Howl has many ways of protecting his family, and this is his most cunning - Howl's moving castle.
  10. Her Ladyship: How are we going to keep the marauders at bay? Our provisions will not see us through the winter! His Lordship: Do not worry your pretty little head, this is our ancestral home, and I will defend it for the future of the family name. We will be here for generations to come. As it has been, so it will be - we have always lived in the castle.
