Six players have signed up, so I think we can start the game. Further players to join us are welcome any time during the game. We are going to have five rounds and you will be writing new year's wishes maybe a bit longer into the year than you usually do. Send me your entry for each round in a PM.

ROUND 1

Happy New Year 297!

296 AC had been a quiet year. Nothing much happened in either Westeros or Essos, at least not much the wiki chronicles noted, though events to be slowly unfolded in the coming year and beyond were probably brewing secretly… As 296 AC was nearing its end, beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder, wildling-turned-ranger-turned-wildling, found himself in possession of a raven from the Shadow Tower, the castle of the Night’s Watch where he had grown up. The raven made him think of his old commander, Denys Mallister and his old friend, Qhorin Halfhand. Midnight was approaching, and Mance's baritone voice filled the night: “Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind…” Suddenly he knew what to do with the bird. He would send his greetings for the new year to the Shadow Tower. For auld lang syne. And so he did.

What was the message?   

There are three acronyms you can choose from:

ATFNRLPBDG 

IHQTMLRO 

MBAIRK

Please, submit your entries not later than 10 p.m. (Central European Time) on Friday 29th January.

ROUND 2

Happy New Year 298!

In 297 AC Euron Greyjoy was exiled from the Iron Island by his brother Balon Greyjoy after committing certain unforgivable indiscretions within the family. Off he sailed and lived the life of a pirate captain on the seas of the Known World. Yet, he did not forget about his family, not that Euron Greyjoy. Nor did he stop planning his return. And he did not want his brothers to forget him either. So, as 298 AC was dawning, he found it appropriate to send his greetings and wishes to Balon for the new year.

What were his words?

There are three acronyms you can choose from:

KALOZHAJO

PAPAGAJ

KINCS

The deadline: Wednesday, January 3rd (10 p.m. Central European Time).
