Ok Renaçido. I did some shuffling of the lists. Hopefully this should be ok? If anyone else has any issues with it, you need to tell me within 3 hours of this post, because then I'll start the game :)

Look for a site on jokes in English. I'm yet to see a BTG involving a joke. :)

Haha I might do that. However I'm a bit busy at the moment with other projects and commitments but I'll endeavour to get it out by the end of the month. Thanks for your patience guys.

So Veqq is going first for Team A? Jaakuuta, can you update maybe one of your posts on the first page so that we can see the order?

Veqq is using a germanic-based conlang he's creating... it'll take him a minute to have it ready so I sent the text out already to the next person on his team after which I'll send it to him.

Ugh...this is really difficult. Especially all the "creative" adjectives in the original text...that just don't really gel well with the way Solresol works :twisted:

In any event, I think I'll be done by tomorrow or Thursday at the latest.

Wow, I'm tired. :?
