More Tea Vicar

Here is a great game for young and old to play.

Quite a few years ago while holidaying in Feuterventura, at the hotel we stayed in they had a game for children to play every night called ‘More Tea Vicar’, my son who was 4 at the time absolutely loved it, he still talks about it now 5 years on.
Every night at 6 o’clock he would hear from our apartment the compere welcoming the other hotel guests into the clubhouse and announcing that bingo would be starting in 15 minutes, he knew then that the game would begin after bingo so he would look at me and his dad, with his little puppy dog eyes and ask us if we could take him downstairs to watch ‘More Tea Vicar’. And every night when they asked for a challenger to take on the King or Queen (whoever won from the previous night) his little hand would shoot up, after about 8 days he got his chance. He didn’t win unfortunately but he had loads of fun and had everyone in the room cheering him on.

“well, what is this game” I hear you say.
