    The next book competition for September is for a copy of ROMAN GAMES by Bruce McBain. Set in AD 96 and told by Plinius Secundus, known to us as Pliny the Younger, this is a thrilling crime story set in Ancient Rome.

    For your chance to win one of three copies of this book just go to the entry form on Survey Monkey and complete the simple questions.

    The competition will run until Sunday 23 September.

    Not from the options offered! :)
     
  8. Er . . . yes, there is. One served 15 years and the other just under 2 years, but both were in power in the year referenced. So I have done the same as others are likely to have done and gone for the former.

    Er...no there ain't! At least not according to the list of Roman Emperors I consulted (Contrary to popular belief, I was not around in those days). There is a definite gap between emperors named in the question as possible answers.

    One is correct and as ever that is the one I have decided - it's in the rules ^~
     
  10. Beg to differ, there's the one you've mentioned (up to Sept 96) followed by Nerva (96 - 98)

    Guess i've blown my chances by argueing with the adjudicator :sad1:

    edited to add that's supposed to say 98 but a cool smiley keeps appearing.
     
  11. Which one should we put down then, to avoid ambiguity and confusion?:blowkiss:^~^~^~

    To save any confusion - there can be, and indeed is, only one correct answer ! :bs:
     
  13. Well I think that sorts it then the examiner has spoken, and as he marks the competitions he will mark them according to the AG rules of fairness, any complaints see the vicar?

  15. Think that will get you a win ?
    AG is completley unbiased and totaly fair

    envelope to the usual adress ag ?
     
  16. One has to try every possible avenue of fairness, if that fails grovel, cheat manipulate and lie, and I only follow my supposed piers, Politicians’

    There is another option, although it is one that will fill most RR,s with horror and send them off looking for solace from the neatrest Regulating PO, and that is:












    just buy the book. :eek: :thumbup:

  19. The last book I brought was Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world. This allows me to breathe and relax and not hyperventilate and panic, when people come up with such mind numbing ideas, such as this?
