  • The sick note and its cherished place in British culture
    nothing but I don t want to infect the whole office and a touch of ebola should be okay after the weekend This creates a climate of disbelief around the sick note an unfairness that is intensely irritating to those people who do suffer the genuine misery of backache migraines etc And while we re here can I just repeat to my managers here at Drumond Park board game development HQ that it was a TOTAL AND GENUINE COINCIDENCE that the start of the Rugby World Cup coincided with the onset of my debilitating allergy to dice If you discover that your nickname at work is sicknote then this is probably an indication that you ve gone too far The most famous sicknote moniker goes to Spurs and England midfielder Darren Anderton who sits atop the Google rankings for many variations of the phrase whether fairly or unfairly you be the judge So if there are any footy fans on your Articulate Your Life team then Darren Anderton s nickname is probably your best approach should the S word appear on your card Governments are constantly on at GP s to issue fewer sick notes but it s unlikely that

  • Stop playing your board game. Eat cheese and/or tiramisu. Start playing again.
    of the fun things about playing in a larger crowd is the huge variety of different approaches to the game the gabblers the clinical describers the brain freezes the ones who persevere with their description when they should have moved on to a different card ages ago On this evening we had a particularly expansive hand waver with the inevitable subsequent dry cleaning bill for the lady sat on his right And we were all ummm of a certain age which meant that the game began with a frankly undignified scramble for reading glasses The electronic timer makes Articulate Your Life even more frantic than its elder brother Articulate There are two reasons for this Firstly it introduces an element of real panic as the clock runs down clinical Articulaters might be able to haul their focus away from the egg timer in the original game but that is simply not an option here And secondly there is always a big cheer as the out of time sound of doom rings out If there is not a big cheer then you are probably playing with the wrong people Drumond Park insider tip KEEP YOUR EYE on your opposing timer operator

  • Gnasher: Undisputed Best of British dog
    K 9 on that list even though he was pretty feeble as a plot device and caused all sorts of ongoing problems for Tom Baker s knee joints But there s only one winner Gnasher has terrorised the posties softies and assorted authority figures of Beanotown since 1968 when he was introduced as a companion for everybody s favourite yobbo and hooligan Dennis the Menace Other characters have come and gone and he s survived various Scrappy Doo like additions to his personal universe but Gnasher remains both daft and terrifying one half of a classic British double act For more than half a century Gnasher has convinced youngsters that having a dog would be the greatest fun in the world ever ever ever that a four legged companion might prove a best mate and co conspirator rather than a simple family pet He showed them that even the terriblest tearaways thrive on the love and affection of those closest to them that thrills escapades and life itself is at its best when its shared with another And that everybody should periodically add a silent or gnot so silent G to all your words that would otherwise begin with a

  • We'll be at London's annual Toy Fair at Olympia
    and her team It s noisy and colourful with an enormous buzz Wherever you look there is bank upon bank of every type of toy and game imaginable with demonstrators peddling the latest concept and characters in the aisles and the atmosphere is electric The media trade press national and international media online and TV are big attendees so Ray has her work cut out we love talking to journalists and in turn they know that we ll always have something up our sleeves from the new range Elsewhere we ll be catching up with our trade buyer colleagues the people who decide what games find their way into the stores The buyers know our track record we ve created a long string of commercially successful games that have become much loved across the UK and abroad so they re always keen to hear about new products that we might have in development They know their customers inside out so a good chat with them is very valuable for us Meanwhile we ll be perusing the hundreds of other exhibitors including the inventors who might have that new prototype that will one day become our next Massive Smash Hit We wrote a little bit about inventing your own board game in a previous blog the Toy Fair is the destination for those who are deadly serious about it So all in all it ll be a busy few days If you re thinking of sneaking in through the window in the toilets scribbling PRESS PASS on the top of your gym membership card or wrapping your dad s overcoat around you whilst standing on your little brother s shoulders then we re afraid that the security people have seen all this before and you probably still won t get in

  • The Match of the Day Goal of the Month Music
    You get zero points if you got that right given that the headline presented you with a GREAT BIG MASSIVE OPEN GOAL If you got it wrong then you re rested for the next game and out on loan as from the summer Jimmy Des Gary The magic of the cup It can feel sometimes that Match of the Day exists on some different plane to other broadcast media beyond a mere programme and into the realms of institution like some football highlights version of The Archers Which is why it was always going to merit a good number of questions when we put together The Best of TV and Movies That Goal of the Month music has been hiding in the background up until recently one of those bits of a telly programme that lodged in the unconscious These days they make a bit more of a brash thing of it which we think is a shame Last year the producers started asking people to vote on what the music should be carefully selected multiple choice of course just in case people chose I dunno the Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A Major or There s No one Quite Like Grandma etc etc This is all utterly wrong The Match of the Day Goal of the Month music should not be a peoples choice Its selection should take place in some slightly haphazard manner by a junior yet enthusiastic BBC employee ordered by their boss to get me a bit of popular music for that football programme Anyway We re fortunate enough to have our development offices based in the home of football Ipswich so we did a straw poll on best goal of the month music and had a complete variety of responses There doesn t seem to be
