Cool ;)

I'll host, as well as play.

You can pick first. It's probably best, considering the mechanism, if you pick them all in one go :)

I've got polio.



But anyway, back to the game!

No, I'm joking. That was my word.

What are you declaring?

(I don't know if IMPRECATE is okay yet, but I think it is. It won't get checked until we've both declared.)

CAMPIER and IMPRECATE are both fine.

Scores after round 2: Ian 5 - 23 Jon.

I'm resigning though because I can't be arsed to do this, plus my bird wants me to go to bed, which sounds like it might be more fun. You win!

Makes you appreciate how good apterous is though, eh? When it's not fucked, I mean.
