  1. That's OK we are used to it.

    Pictionary 41: Summer is coming

    That's just as well, makes the game interesting. That's what I tell myself about the one I drew, anyway.
  3. Three so far. Depending on supplying inspiration.
  4. I am tempted to host if we can get enough numbers. The theme is: "We drop you in it" and there will be five rounds. Its a reality TV like idea - each round contestants are dropped into a new situation. For example, a night in fleabottom, a weekend at Highgarden, a month on the Quiet Isle. You may have a great time, find yourself out of your depth ... there is no end of possibilities. You report back using one of the acronyms provided. If you are a newbie here is a brief explanation - Each round you send an entry to me, I post everyone's entries so they can be anonymous and then players vote in the thread for their three favourites and I tally the scores. If you would like to play send me a PM. So far we have Raisin' Bran Howlin' Howland ?Dolorous Gabe SWMBO but we need more ... anyone up for it? @rocksniffer @Casablanca Birdie @Lady Blizzardborn @Ser Not Appearing @a german shadow @Jez Bell

    I decided to have another go and did use the first sentence of the first book I opened.

    I found it just TOO HARD. Quite difficult to read. And I have never got round to mentally lining up the time lines with AFFC. Tyrion's adventures were the only part I did remember clearly after finishing. They were sort of fascinatigly appalling, he was bouncing around Essos in mental turbulence. SInce then rereading has made me appreciate the portrait of the mercenaries more, and all the detail of the his escape within the camp was great. From AGOT on, Dany's chapters moved along so fast that line was much more exciting than others, now she is stuck trying to 'be good' while the author uses very unconvincing schematic range of characters to try to demonstrate some (lack of) understanding of such political situations. I found Jon and the NW just as tedious as Dany which fits as they are having a parallel 'become a leader' thing. I did like some nifty things like his marrying Alys to Styr. On rereading I have come to like the Jon stuff much more but not Dany's chapters. PS I forgot Theon chapters were even in it. They were great. And I suppose Quentyn's sad dull journey is a little dose of reality - history must be full of such sad characters who aren't equipped to deal with their 'role'.
  9. and Jaime is stuck in his helmet at the tourney of the hand, I think.

    Wow! First time I check out this thread and someone just got their book accepted. I am impressed!

    Cast the Actor!(v3)

    Benfred Tallhart, the rabbit leader I wouldn't know. I don't play because I don't know most of the actors. If it was 'cast the dead or very old actor' I'd be better. Margot Robbie
