Game for Lockdown.

Recommended Posts

This is a game I found years ago, but never posted before. It should give you something to think about while confined. Each set of letters/numbers are the initial letters of the words that will make the sentences complete. They can be songs, film titles, books, facts, nursery rhymes etc. For instance 60M in an H = 60 minutes in an hour. Write your answers on a piece of paper...don't post any answers on the thread as it might spoil it for others. I'll post the answers in a couple of weeks.

Er...the answers to the game in my OP above...or didn't you read that?...:laughing2dw:

Perhaps I missed your intention, but don't hold it against me.

I suspect this is an ancient game (relatively)  that most of us were not privy to.:wink:
