Space Game! Wherefore Art Thou Destination Five? (day 4)

Twenty-seven! Count ‘em!

Cordelia, Ophelia, Bianca, Cressida, Desdemona, Juliet, Portia, Rosalind, Mab, Belinda, Perdita, Puck, Cupid, Miranda, Francisco, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania, Oberon, Caliban, Stephano, Trinculo, Sycorax, Margaret, Prospero, Setebos, Ferdinand

Get a load of those names! Why do I suddenly feel like a curtain is about to rise? And I have the strangest urge to speak in Ole English. Forgive me, I would fain stop myself…

It is the East, and Juliet is the moon….well, one of them, anyway. Look hither at the five exalted ones.

Yon final apparition doth appear a fair jumble of cliffs and canyons. I am the very pink of curiosity! What say ye, we toddle down henceforth and look more closely like?

Zounds! What beauteous majesty!

Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow…when fain we shall the question answer, Wherefore art thou Destination Five?

Newcomers, make haste! Get thee now to Space Game Rules!

  1. bird of the wind says:

    I think Uranus is the man, although I had no idea he had so many followers… maybe it is an overcompensation for his rather embarrassing name.

  2. Well done, Archimedes!

  3. archimedes says:

    That is quite a cast! I think it is Uranus because of all the moons, but I don’t know why he’s uncomfortable with his name.
