Location,location,location
« on: December 22, 2010, 01:09:10 am »
Here's a new idea for a game I had whilst driving to pick up my mum and bring her over for Christmas. The names of some of the places I passed en route inspired this  ;D

It is merely a simple anagram game but the anagrams have to be place names - anywhere you like from cities to small villages - you can give a hint as to the country or county etc or make it 'clueless' i.e. no hints at all.
They can be anywhere in the world - so with the international zoo community this could be quite challenging! 
Places with two names should have the two words kept separate (as my first one below)
Here's a couple of easy examples - Frodox (Oxford), Fricfad (Cardiff)

Whoever correctly solves the anagram takes the next turn -

For starters this is somewhere in Suffolk, England

Handmee Tamker

Needham Market ;D

(Google helped! :D)

Oh God, now do I have to set one? Well I can bet my bottom dollar - since I don't have any dollars - that there is no anagram of Haverfordwest :o :o :o

Warning: while I was typing Mitch posted as well!

Well done to you both for the right answer - as to Haverfordwest you just make it up yourself e.g. Fradhoverstew  ;D ;D

Oh I get it! I thought from your example that you meant the anagram had to be the place of somewhere else too - which just goes to show how well my brain actually processed Handmee Tamker as well as looking for anagrams of it ::) ::) ::) ::) :D :D
