One of my favourites. The idea came after I'd published the last one and wondered how Crow might have placed all of those words himself, or at least the last couple. I thought to start with that they might be playing some obscure set of rules (Mornington Crescent-style) which allows a player to have another turn after placing a word over a certain score. But then, remembering that Maureen can't spell, the obvious answer is that she's missing turns because she can't go. And having a really obvious high-scoring word and not realising it was too much fun not to draw.
That makes this my first 'prequel' and as we know, prequels are usually terrible.
Jigsaw - online
What's more fun than a cuddle with a woolly critter?
Try completing a puzzle online - they have just the right number of pieces for a coffee-break challenge and you gradually reveal the cartoon.
If you like Yvonne then the good news is that you can support the author, buy the image to keep and avail yourself of some really useful kit, such as mugs, bags, coasters, mouse mats, postcards, greetings cards, even posters and prints.
Don't see the item you'd like with the cartoon you'd like? Just email me, I'll be happy to arrange it for you.
Maureen has a most obvious high-scoring word EQUINOX
Maureen: Nope, I don't think I can go.
Maureen: which is a shame because if there'd been an P available I could have made "UP"
