  1. The turnaround from SF1 to SF2 makes it a bit harder as I would have liked to have gone down to London earlier and stayed a few nights before, but I've still decided to get tickets for the Semi Finals and Final. I would have rather been able to choose the seats but at least this way saves me spending ages trying to find seat views on google whilst deciding. Hopefully early purchases will get the better seats from that category.


    I'm expecting to be able to buy tickets to the group games closer to the tournament, but if I miss out, at least I have tickets for the main ones I want to go to. Last WC over here I was desperate to go to as many matches as possible but my enthusiasm unfortunately has waned a bit since then. With the Semi-Finals and Final, they're must-see because I'd kick myself if England managed to win it and I wasn't there.

    Some relatively simple, but fun, games I often play.
    Armagetron Advanced: This is an oldie, based on the Light Cycle scene from the Eighties movie 'Tron'. Basic graphics, but high-speed action - http://www.armagetronad.org/ 

    The Royal Game of UR: the oldest known board game in history, this is a browser game that's like two-handed Ludo. Simple, but fun - https://www.yourturnmyturn.com/java/ur/index.php

    Japanese Mahjong: another browser game, this is not the pair-matching game often passed off as Mahjong, but a decent version of the actual thing - https://www.gamedesign.jp/flash/mahjong/mahjong_e.html

    Stick Sports: this started off as a simple Cricket game, but has evolved, both in presentation and choice of sports. Games can sometimes restart after the first couple of deliveries, which is a little annoying. Watch out for the streaker! - https://www.sticksports.com/web-games/ 

    I’ve been playing a version of Mahjong on WeChat against my Chinese relatives. They would happily play all day but I get restless after round or two of 8 games.

    I’ve also been replaying A link to the Past on my SNES mini and it’s as good as I remember it being and still looks great.

    Next on my list is to boot up Jagged Alliance 2 on my PC. One of the best turn based games ever made.

    In his book 50 Years of Bloody Sundays, Doncaster RLFC 1951-2001, Peter Hilton suggests Doncaster's choice of blue and amber was a reflection of "much helpful assistance" from Leeds in setting up the new club.

    Apparently, York chose amber (or yellow) and black because their first captain had played previously for Wasps.

    I’m sure I was told once that the first kit The Dons ever had was a hand me down kit from Leeds. When they did eventually have their own kit made they stuck with the same colours.

    No idea if that’s true but it makes sense.
