    Lately we've had a few more people using the chatroom, which has been fun. One of the things we do in there is play parlour games. The favourites are:

    Charades. This works surprisingly well in text - e.g

    player1 draws a square on the air
    player2: tv show
    player1 nods and holds up two fingers
    player1 holds up one finger and tugs his ear
    player2: two words

    player3: first word sounds like...
    player1 shivers uncontrollably
    player3: cold?
    player2: shake?
    player1 nods at player2 but mimes "longer"
    player2: sounds like shaking?
    player1 nods, etc..

    Hangman. The approved format for the clue is _ E _ / D _ A R _ . The hangman is made of ascii, like so: |---o<-< (like many of the new-fangled "emoticons", you have to view it sideways for it to make sense).

    Guess Who I Am.
    One player imagines themselves to be a celebrity. The others ask questions that can be answered "yes" or "no". The first person to guess the celebrity is the winner.

    I Spy. Actually quite hard in a chatroom, but we've tried posting links to pictures and I Spying on them. Sort of like a cross between I Spy and Where's Wally. I think we could play this one more, actually.

    Guess What Dick Is Singing.
    Dick is a regular chatter who sometimes comes in after his big night out. He drunkenly posts song lyrics, line by line, but they get absolutely mangled by his phone's auto-correct. You have to work out what the song is.

    So, I'm going to suggest a "games night", open to all-comers. A Thursday would be best if we wanted to fit in a round or two of Guess What Dick Is Singing. The chatroom we use is here. Expressions of interest in this thread please!

    Skull Island (it is not a duck)
    Hope you all have fun with these and get a good turn out. That is my Friday morning and I don't know yet what work will be like this week and will only have a little bit before work if I do pop in.
