Lord Likely Is A Card
I AM something of an avid card player, and may often be found in a local tavern indulging in a few hands of either poker or Blackjack, or perhaps one of the less well-known games such as ‘Seven-Card Scrote’, ‘Twat the Joker’ or ‘Queen on Top.’ Perhaps my favourite game, however, is ‘Flinging a Gin in Your Opponent’s Face and Scarpering Before You Lose Yet Another Grand.’ Ah, cards. The game of kings!
So it was something of a delight to discover that my own handsome visage features in a brand-new card game, even if it does mean that I must share a deck with that incorrigible cur, Professor Elemental.
Yes, despite our differences, the Professor has seen fit to include me in the deck for his edition of the game ‘Pairs’ (probably because he does at least have the sense to see that my addition will help sales of this game to soar), produced by Hip Pocket Games and which is available to purchase hither.
However, being the benevolent sort that I am, I have decided to offer my damnably fabulous readers the opportunity to win one of THREE packs of said cards. I know, I know. I AM staggeringly generous.
To be in with a chance of winning a pack, simply answer this question:
I have in my hand a deck of ordinary playing cards. They are shuffled, and I draw one card out of the pack. My question is this: which card is it?
Simply write your guess (serious or silly) in the comments below, or send me an electronic mail (with ‘Is This Your Card?’ in the subject header). Alternatively, send me a tweet with the hashtag #isthisyourcard, or enter via The Book of Many Faces. Three lucky, lucky winners will be selected on November the 1st. No cash alternatives offered, so do not ask, you scrounging beggars. Winners will be selected based on either guessing the card correctly, or in the event of no-one getting it spot on, the closest or most humorous guesses shall triumph. His lordship’s decision is FINAL, and anyone wishing to dispute it may speak with my Thundercock, my pet lion.
– Lord Likely.
