Friday afternoon diversion: flipping Tories

My Bullingdon Club Matching Pairs High ScoreIf Dickens were writing David Copperfied today, I’m sure Mr Micawber would say: ‘Gaming is the thief of time: collar him!’

As the score sheet shows, I’ve spent far too much of today flipping Tories.

Bullingdon Club Matching Pairs is strangely addictive – just one more go, you tell yourself – but holding the record for reaching the end in the least flips is a strangely unfulfilling experience.

    All the more so because they don’t actually save the hi-scores. They only use the lowest score recorded in your browser session, alongside the four Tim presumably added himself. I’m not bitter, of course, that my impressive 42 has disappeared into the aether :-)
