Game description

On a camp (or boarding school) 2 kids are talking about the letters which they have received from home. „It is brilliant receiving letters from home!“. „Yes, you’re right there. I have received a letter from my mother today“. „Me too. My mother wrote that she had written the letter very slowly because she knows that I cannot read very quickly.” „My mother wrote that my father has a new job and is now above 500 people. He is the gardener in the town graveyard“. „And my mother wrote that I would never recognise the house again. They have moved house.“ „Oh, she also writes that our neighbour has become a pig breeder. My mother got wind of it first thing this morning.“ „Hmm, my mother is not feeling too well. She has had her appendix removed and has received a new hosepipe“. „Hey, my sister has had a baby but my mother doesn’t know if I have become an auntie or an uncle because she doesn’t know if it’s a boy or a girl.“ „Oh no, there is a P.S. at the end of the letter. My mother writes that she really wanted to send me 20€ but the envelope was already closed!“. „Isn’t it great to know that everything’s the same at home?“ „You’re right there.“
