Number 7 in an occasional series: This quiz is based on the game ‘Only Connect’. First, you need to identify 9 games from the picture clues below. Then you should make the connections. There are three sets of games with each set linked by a particular theme or connection. The games could be connected in many ways, but I have in mind a unique solution. Aim to identify the three links and the three games in each set. The solution is now at the bottom of the page, so don’t scroll down until you are ready to see the answers.
Solution – the 9 games are (top left to bottom right):
1. Le Havre, 2. Samurai & Katana, 3. Vasco da Gama, 4. Patchwork, 5. Francis Drake, 6. Sekigahara, 7. Shogun, 8. Caverna, 9. Voyages of Marco Polo.
