Games we play within the forum itself. If you find a neat game on the web, I would place that post under “Resources and Reviews”

Twenty Clues

Post by Marco » Sat Oct 08, 2005 12:51 pm

Since there's gusto for this game I'll post it here. :)

Rules are easy. I have a card that has twenty clues to describe something, someone or somewhere. It's your job to guess what it is.

Alright, let's try. Oefening baart kunst! / Practise makes perfect!

Ergens / Somewhere

Clue: ik werd begraven door een ontploffing / I was burried by an explosion

Als je meer clues nodig hebt moet je het zeggen! / If you need more clues you'll have to tell!

Pompeii?

Post by Tom » Sat Oct 08, 2005 1:50 pm

Is het misschien de stad "Pompeii" die door de eruptie van de vulkan "Vesuvius" begraven was?

Is it possibly the city of Pompeii which was buried by the eruption of the volcano "Vesuvius"?

Met hulp van LaPingvino:
Is het misschien de stad "Pompeii" die door de uitbarsting van de vulkaan "Vesuvius" begraven was?

eruptie: meestal zeggen wij "uitbarsting". De vulkaan barst uit...

Post by Tom » Sat Oct 22, 2005 9:12 pm

Een zuurpruim in het Engels is:

a sourpuss
a gloomy Gus
a picklepuss
a pouter

Basically it is someone that always has a sad look on their face.
Someone who pouts a lot.

Ik heb een beetje meer tijd nodig om het antwoord over na te denken.

Citroen Lemon ?

Post by Tom » Sun Oct 30, 2005 10:05 pm

Is het misschiem een citroen of niet soms?
Is it possibly a lemon or am I mistaken?

Citroën = French Auto

Groetjes

In America we call an auto with a very bad repair history "a lemon".
It is interesting that a Citroën is an automobile.
