A Victorian parlour game modernised for the 21st century
When I was a child I used to stay with a friend, Randolph, whose parents were wonderfully eccentric and ‘old fashioned’, his mother was an ex-ballerina from the Royal Ballet and his father was a retired naval officer with the most magnificent beard.
Reading ‘worthy’ books, meritorious discussion, and parlour games were the norm around the dining table. There was no TV in the house, switching the radio on in the kitchen was only for the BBC world news, Radio 4 plays and the shipping forecast! The home-computer age was still in the distant future.
One of our intellectual ‘battlegrounds’ was a fantastic word game that we played using pencils and bits of paper. I still have some ‘results’ from those battles ‘yellowing away’ in my old desk draw. Recently I thought that we should give our old word game a second life, so we have developed it as an App for more people to enjoy.
It has been on a long journey from a Victorian dining table to your Smart Phone. I dearly hope you like it.
