    Like the secret target word game, except the target isn't secret and there are two teams with rival target subjects.
    You are in team A if your name begins a-i, otherwise team A.
    For this game,team A score on 2 word travel phrase e.g. "evening flight", team B score on musiv phrases = e.g. "opening bar".
    I will not play, but be umpire, and explain any other rules as we go along.
    opening phrase is:
    blue moon

    is 'blue cheese' a music phrase?

    *I'm all for trying a new game btw, just never heard of this as a music phrase*
    * I'm in the same group as nightscented based on initial . . . . do we need to wait for someone from the other group to answer before we can then respond?*
     
  4. Good question, kibosh.If we don't have to wait, could I say
    blue velvet.
    and get a point because it's a song?

    No you don't have to take it in team turns, but the same poster can't post twice in a rrow.
    Proper nouns and song titles, company names etc count . Nor does anything with the word "travel" or "music" in it.
    I was thinking of "cheesy song" BTW from blue cheese for team B to score on ...
    I think I better play for team A after all , seeing as business is slow

    Velvet Underground
    I think it should be allowed but you said names don't count so there we go - nil point [​IMG]
    It's soooooo unfair really. Things never go my way. Why me???????? Why my team??????? We never win. It's always the other team.

    I'm very sorry Gel, but rules are rules. I think there are too many band and song names about so it wouldn;t be fair in this particular game.
    Underground station
    1 point to team A !! [​IMG]
    Note that "underground" and "station" can't be used by team A any more to score with.
     
  8. I can only think of travel phrases from underground station. I agree, SG, it's not fair, we never win...

    NOT a well known saying! And even if it was, "equals" is not a small word. Point removed, I'm afraid.
    A3, B2
    But as always we have to let the last phrase stand
    speeding driver
    A+1 A4 B2
     
  13. Naughty ShowerGel!
    speeding fine

    fine tuning
    B 3 points A 4
    Also I have to point out that it's much easier to score in travel than music due to lots of music phrases not being English e.g concerto, prego etc. I should know because it was my subject at college...........................[​IMG]

    Oh! I've just realized it's not a point because we're not allowed to use the same word again for a point [​IMG]
