2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 4, Day 2

Post by DadofTwins »

Sorry for the delay.

To get word when each day's game is ready to go, look for the #SHC2014 hashtag on Twitter.

And to my delight, the spell checker on here thinks "hashtag" is a misspelling.

Ah, technology.

P.S. -- Guest writer Andromus created today's first category. Well done, sir.
