    The tougher the letters, the better you guys get. Please note that I left a couple words off entry #2. It has since been repaired back to its intended length. So please be sure to check your entries and scores as well. Thanks!

    Round three: Dorne Your ad agency has landed the Dorne tourist board contract. Fantastic! Except now you have to figure out how to sell northerners (and others) on the allure of sun and sand - so much sand . . . and maybe Doran Martell's water gardens, and a blood orange or two. Perhaps folks will want to see the tower in Sunspear where the Prince of Dorne kept his only daughter locked up. And there's always the orphans of the Greenblood, I suppose . . . Good luck!!! Letters: TOIA ORTAI IEIENB RWFPNUL Deadline: Thursday, December 12. Too soon? I hope not, so we can keep moving and keep interest going, but if your schedule does not permit, let me know and I'll do the next round on the weekend.

    It's that time of the year again - let's decorate our tree!

    Looking good. Maybe I should make time to read your instructions and see if I can figure out how to make a good bauble for your tree.

    Round two) Highgarden Mace Tyrell has been approached by his Chancellor of the Exchequer (emphasis on the "EX"). The Tyrells are skint. The bloom is off the rose. The treasury is bare. Fortunately, an answer has been given to this vexing problem: tourism! Come one, come all to see the roses (and other wonders) of Highgarden! Your job is to write the most appealing entreaty to the would be tourist class. Letters: NTCA LLHDD PRDKPI VUOIMIE (Thanks, as always, to my Scrabble letters for helping me out). Entry deadline, Sunday Dec. 8.

    I hope your travels go well. There are always problems when it snows here too even though we're "used to it".

    I have as many as four more players that have indicated they plan to get entries in. That doesn't count two players from the last game I was hoping to have along as well. I'll be patient for now and hope this is OK with you four who do have entries in.
