    So here's something I thought might be fun to try out over the Christmas period. I'm starting the thread now to gauge interest, but I won't be actually starting it starting it until December 1st.

    RULES.
    1. I will pick a zoo and twenty-four of its animals. The only clue that will be given prior to starting is what country of the world the zoo is.
    2. Starting from December 1st, I will list one animal per day. It will be set-up so that the first few animals will be very common in zoos, whilst the last few animals are very rare in captivity (at least in the country listed) - possibly even unique to that zoo.
    3. You guys then have to guess what zoo I am referring to - one guess per day. I will not tell anyone they are correct immediately.
    4. Once all 24 animals have been listed, I will go back through the comments and whoever guessed the zoo correctly first is the winner.

    You guys can play along and guess....but you can also create your own Advent Calender game as well and we can all play along together.

    Where would the fun be if I straight up said "Tiger Quoll"? Then you'd immediately know it was Hamerton. I gotta go with the common animals first, y'know. X3

    BTW, Hamerton is not the zoo I selected.

    ....or is it? ;)

    I really like the idea. I even think that a similar concept could be used even in other months.
