    I thought we said in the past that a guaranteed "win" isn't really a win, so can't be counted, as not really a competition? It's just claiming a sample on first come first served basis.....

    Given there was only 1,000 not 100,000 and one could argue that the competition element was the race to enter before they ran out the newt is fairly happy with this one.

    This has nothing to do with any need for the letter U as I have just noticed I have already crossed this off.
    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    I've had a message from one of our players this morning and although she admitted she was "dosed up" albeit on antihistamines for hay fever I think is quite a good idea.

    What about winning a prize for each room of your house as part of the 2018 Challenge?

    What do you think folks?
    Should be worth a laugh with you lot

    Of course you keep your pans in the toilet

    I wasn't going to extremes like win something for your swimming pool room/tennis courts/indoor cinema

    But I think I may have gone for win something for your

    Living room
    Kitchen
    Bedroom
    Bathroom
    Garden

    I think that is reasonable

    Am I the only one not "dosed up" on this thread

    In my case, I have a bathroom and then the kitchen/living room/bedroom are all my second "room" (although I have frosted glazed screens on a track that divide off the bedroom, technically my flat is all 1 room, with the exception of the bathroom). Although I have a hallway, do we count that as a room? Mine is the narrow corridor, no-where-to-put-anything-in-it variety, but some people have hallways with furniture etc. in.


    We could have a pre-agreed list, so it's the same for everyone.

    A sort of fantasy house, so you don't actually have to have all these spaces in the house/flat you actually live in.

    Living room
    Kitchen
    Dining room (lots of houses don't have this as a separate room, just an "area")
    Bedroom
    Bathroom
    Junk room (all good houses have one of these or at the very least a junk cupboard, understairs or otherwise - good for runners up prizes!)
    Garden (even if you don't have one)
    Garage (or shed, even if you don't have either, could be anything car related or tools etc.)

    Could even get really carried away and say:
    Swimming pool (representative of winning a holiday)
    Tennis court (representative of winning anything sporty - clothes, equipment or event tickets)
    Cinema (any type of entertainment tickets - cinema, theatre - or popcorn, film merchandise/goody bag)
