Never in the history of MM Links has a ruler been more generous than King Ulysses II in bestowing on his people a vast plethora of points. Recalling his bouts of ill-health when just starting school,...

I must begin by confessing to yet another slip up in my marking last week. Having printed off SIX pages of predictions, the second page dropped out of sequence and was overlooked. Fortunately, it...

This fourth week in the reign of Lady Slaney II found her ladyship in a somewhat reflective mood and final theme was based on The Barren ~ A Stony Place. This led to a set of links which were far from...

This third week in the reign of Lady Slaney II found her ladyship in a somewhat chilly mood. This was not only in her choice of theme [The Frozen Continent] for which her links were: South PACIFIC...

This second week in the reign of Lady Slaney II found her ladyship adopting a fairly aggressive attitude. With a more familiar theme of “Molly Malone”, Slaney finally chose the following...

Last week marked the beginning of the second reign of Lady Slaney II and several entrants benefitted from a healthy harvest of points, so much so that Slaney may attempt to stem the haemorrhage with a...

This first week in the reign of Lady Slaney II attracted a healthy field of nearly 50 entrants, all trying to outwit “She who has twice outwitted Strix”. With an adopted French theme (and...

This will be the final week of our Triple Crown MM Links Champion (Strix) with no fewer than 14 weekly challenges under his belt in relatively short time. Whenever he has been asked to step into the...
