What kinds of games would you like to see in the future?


  1. How did I miss this game?!? Grr. I actually knew one of them, and should have known a couple others. Well, reading the answers was great fun :-) Especially with so many lovely pictures of Ioan Gruffudd among them!

  2. Oh! I was going to do this, but to tell the truth, I really only knew two or three. I love these types of games though. Next time I'll participate, even if I know none ;)


I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
