I was cheated because I typed mah jong rather than mahjong and Battle Ship rather that Battleship. The bastards.

64%...missed 2 due to spelling (parcheesi and mahjong) and the last one could be any RPG these days as most of them use multi-sided dice and the map shown...did get it right though.

I got 57% - a said "Trivia" instead of Trivial Pursuit, and I misspelled Dungeons and Dragons.

I SHOULD have gotten Majong but for some reason I didn't think it was the right answer so I blanked it.

I also thought the lettered tiles were an old version of scrabble. Never would have gotten parcheesi or pictionary.

I got Parcheesi wrong because I couldn't spell it. I thought the pictionary one was "Go To The Head Of The Class", which was a game we played in the 70s. I thought the green letters were Scrabble.

I scored a 70%, which is pretty good, considering Mystery Date didn't figure into the questions at all!

I got 9 out of 14, I have never seen the games parcheesi or life, I didn't recognise pictionary and the other two I missed (reversi and clue) are known by different names over here.

heh heh, we have a drinking game we call "Shotcheesi"...basically when you send someone's piece back to the start they take a shot and when you get a piece to the finish you can give a shot to anyone in the room...it's a great party game. :D

Cluedo. The original name (it was a British invention). :D

French was the native tongue of England for quite some time as I recall.

NATIVE tongue? It was the language of court for a while - but never the NATIVE tongue. :p

French (Anglo-Norman) was the language of nobility (i.e. property owners) and the upper class of merchants (i.e. business owners), all of which had to communicate with a general public keen to learn the language of those that owned and operated the country. I would say that is pretty official (i.e. native).

If you are talking about England pre-Roman conquest, well the "native tongue" is equally debatable. For the purpose of this conversation I think we can all agree that, comme d'habitude, je ne me trompe.
