Mind Games 11

In Mind Games 11, we try for an “Aha!” moment and practise our mind-reading skills. 

30. Daft ditloids

Here’s a word game that tests your ability to recognise figures of speech, facts or short phrases from just a few letters and numbers. For example,

7 W of the W means “Seven Wonders of the World”.

1 H on a U means “One Horn on a Unicorn”.

Can you guess what these ditloids mean?

12 S of the  Z                      1 D at a T                   3 B M (SHTR)                      

4 H of the A                           52 C in a P                15 M on a D M C

26 L of the A                         50 W to L Y L            7 DS
