No problem spacedog, I instigated a rest period on account of no interest of the general public

Sometimes one can go for several days before one makes a hesitant guess at it, Rianne, especially if you have other commitments like family or work or schooling. So please don't doubt yourself. It's usually great fun to have a go at it.

Hans may I please have a go at it? I'm starting to get interested in it again.

We've lain fallow here for a few weeks, partially my fault as I didn't notice my turn had come up. I'm also the last one signed up on the list. So, as we seem to have run out of steam for this, perhaps it's time to at least temporarily close the forum after my current one is solved -- ending us on a semi-round number and with a dragon-themed puzzler as WitW started out back with Anneli's first post.

Was hoping someone else would step in after Cheryl so my turns wouldn't be so close together... but it doesn't look like that's going to happen so I'll go again if we're keeping the game going.

Also hard to have enough people interested in guessing. Still the game had a great run - we started it back in 2005!

I don't think the interest has been lost, just a lot of the members who used to play this, don't show up on MoM as much. I have been guilty of both counts. Just so much has been happening lately.
