A tough game with relatively less participation in setting and voting compared to the last one . We received 19 entries from 12 setters in all. Supriya shortlisted 7 based on the number of entries ( we do 10 if we receive > 20 entries )
Containers were the most popular choice of our setters and charades and telescopics seemed to be the favoured second choice.
We received just 16 votes for this game which was a tad disappointing.
Here is the summary of the votes received
|Kolluru Koteswara Rao||Holy Mother leaves assembled function(7)||2|
|Kaustav Datta||Lucky in bed? Not so much! (7)||9|
