Great use of the ‘hide details’ tool :slight_smile:

It would be nice if others did the same, or use the ‘spoiler’ option like this

If you want to know how - feel free to ask me (but essentially you highlight the text and click the gear icon above to select the appropriate tool)

Maria, you’ve got loads! Have a re-think of 5/16/17-19/22 and 24. You’re in the lead though!

I was trying to figure them out around doing work yesterday :smiley: but tried having another look this morning and really couldn’t figure out any more of them, so I caved and looked at Maria’s guesses :joy: She did really well! Some of the ones I missed feel kind of obvious now that I’ve seen them :man_facepalming:

:iphone: Psyche! Has to be one of the best social distancing apps I’ve played with my friends so far. It’s an interactive quiz that works in real time to test who knows each other better/ can come up with the funniest answer. I would recommend playing with 4+ players: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wb.goog.ellen.psych&hl=en_GB
