The theme is the guiding statement for your game. It can be played pretty loosely, I can’t think of any game that has been disqualified for not following the theme yet. I’ll be taking part this time cause it falls on a holiday week, though I might take an extra day or two off.
Wish I could, but far too busy at work and can’t take the time off. Last time I entered I made the mistake of having a team name that started with ‘w’ - don’t make this mistake! People work down the alphabetically sorted list, and never get as far as the bottom - only 4 people voted on my game:-( Saying that 5 people couldn’t get it to run - the web plugin should fix that problem though - maybe I’ll have the time when it next comes around.
http://www.wibblewobble.com/ seems to be quite detailed about the ‘no y’ versions, which I assume are where their ‘y’ versions come from. I know it due to Blackadder, a British comedy with Rowan Atkinson in, so I equate it with the shaking definition. In fact ‘wibble’ was my entry name last time I entered pyweek! (And I regularly use it as a variable name when I can’t be bothered to think of a proper name.)
