    *Synthesised clarion call*

    This is a call to all who have played the quiz game WORD UP to make their mark on the nation, nay, the world.

    This moste excellente boggle-type game has taken Cambridge University by storm, with teams from such varied establishments as PETERHOUSE, TRINITY, SYDNEY SUSSEX and HOMERTON fighting it out on myriad battlegrounds (there being one for each quiz machine that has the game). The TRINITY-HOMERTON team 'VAGINALBOB' did, over the academic year of 2004-5, vanquish its becolleged and enpubbed foes on local soil and, seeking properly to prove its mettle, set out to colonise Word Up settlements across the South-East.

    Having smote severally the enemy encampments of ROMFORD, IPSWICH, COLCHESTER, CHELMSFORD, HARWICH, CLACTON, CHADWELL HEATH, WIVENHOE, BURY ST EDMUNDS, NORWICH and THOSE FOES IN LONDON WHO HAD MADE THEMSELVES KNOWN TO US, we rested, self-satisfied with our own EXCELLENCE in WORD-UPPERY.

    Now, wanting, yet again, with eager heart, happily to uncover OTHER TALENT TO CHALLENGE AND, IN CONFRONTING, OVERCOME, we have opened up the game to the world and compiled a GLOBAL LIST of SUPERITUDINOUSNESS.

    Can you guess where you, noble students, armed with time, mental alacrity and aimless competitiveness, come in?

    YES - right again! - Send in your scores, with location and maybe even a painting, hastily codged tapestry or daguerrotype of the score in question for inclusion on this list.

    GOOD LUCK

    the email address to send scores to is on the website
