Dad & Me play Native American Trumps!
This episode introduces the biggest names from Native American History. So get on your Crazy Horse, and get ready for a battle of trumps! We select categories from our homemade cards, like “BEST NAME” or “BIGGEST CHALLENGE FACED AS A CHILD” or “MOST AMAZING ACHIEVEMENT”. The cards will be shuffled and could throw up matches that you won’t find anywhere else – maybe Pocahontas v Sacagawea! Or Sitting Bull versus Geronimo!
Please forgive us for mispronouncing names, from ‘Colonel Custard’ to ‘Saca-ga-ga-wea’! As always, we are learning from our mistakes. But the outtakes for this episode are a heinous crime!
Read industry reviews of Dad’s new World War II Asia-Pacific novel, The Slightest Chance, at paulletters.com. It’s out now on Kindle for US$6.99, as well as in paperback.
