    Guess The Victorian Family

    Here is a game I invented on another board and wondered if you'd all like to play.

    I basically select a family from a British census and give you the dates, sexes and names (in a random order) and you have to put the names, first and middle, in the correct place.

    I award 5 points for a correct fn/mn combo, 2 points for every fn or mn correctly identified, 2 points for a back-to-front combo (i.e. John Henry instead of Henry John) and 1 point for every name in the correct place.

    The winner will be the person with the most points :)


    LN: Billington
    DH: Thomas Henry
    DW: Annie

    DD: (1871)
    DS: (1872)
    DS: (1874)
    DD: (1877)
    DD: (1878)
    DD: (1880)
    DS: (1883)

    Girls:
    Alice, Annie, Clementine, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Florence, Gladys, Marguerite

    Boys:
    Andrew, Edward, Frederick, Henry, Joseph, Thomas

    You did really well! I'll post the answers and scores in a separate post in a day or two so that any other players won't get thrown by other people's score ;)
