GridWordz is a game based on an old Victorian parlour game modernised for the 21st century.
When I was a child in the 60’s I used to stay with a friend, Randolph, whose parents were wonderfully eccentric and ‘old fashioned’ in their character, attitude, dress and demeanour. Randolph’s mother was an ex-ballerina from the Royal Ballet and his father was a retired naval officer with the most magnificent beard. Their house and their style of living was quintessentially ‘British 19th Century’.
Lots of reading ‘worthy’ books, meritorious discussion, parlour games and cerebral challenges were the norm around the dinner table. There was no TV in the house and switching the radio on in the kitchen was only for the BBC world news, Radio 4 plays and the shipping forecast!
