Time For A Regency Revel  

Posted by Heidi in

I am (supposedly) busy at work on the second half of Miss D Two but I want to share my new toy (read: time waster). It's a hangman game (except with a daffy duck who gets dunked rather than a witty skeleton who gets hung) which I made up (clearly, I am so impressed with myself) using all sorts of Regency era words: famous places, famous people, regency terms and pretty much everything Jane Austen (character names, places, book titles) PLUS the same for Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind. It's called Regency Revelry. So, revel, already!

Oh! I wanna play! I just went over there and it said "Loading", which, on my computer (that I still haven't swapped for Greg's yet) "Loading" means, "Your computer is just about to shut down."

But I'm playing as soon as Greg gets home.

What a fun game! I even made a top score. It's kind of like Hang-a-roo that my kids got me addicted to.
I am #4...til someone knocks me down. You might want to check out my blog. There just might be a little treat over there for you!

CHIT is way toooooo hard of a word. I was totally on a roll when that came up. I don't like short words. They make it so much harder to guess. Some of the words I had never heard of but was still able to make a lucky guess. I am sitting at #2 now. Woo Hoo!!!

Apparently I suck at this game.

I'm pretty sure I'm in last place - yay me!

Fun game, but I'm humbled. What is "pink of the ton"?

Best of luck with the writing!

The portrait is so great.

And I would totally LOSE at that game. Don't hate me, but I'm regency clueless. ):

I didn't know you could create a game. How fun!

I apologize profusely for spelling your name wrong on my blog. I have updated my blog and it is spelled correctly now. So sorry.

May 14, 2009 at 9:15 PM

awesome! I just wasted a good chunk of time - thanks you rock!

May 14, 2009 at 9:42 PM

So many time wasters...so little time...

May 15, 2009 at 4:42 AM

You would give me something to do to kill some more time on the computer!
