Re: lateral thinking

Without wanting to spoil it - Is this a racing car?, and is the hotel painted red?

Re: lateral thinking

Thought the color of the car would be important - it perhaps would give the origin of the pusher.
But I digress, was the car running on bio fuel?

Re: lateral thinking

Isn't the object of the excercise to determine the National/International version of the game? There must be over a thousand version by now.
see

i.e. If the car was in Aberdeen the pusher would be bankrupt through school fees (Marischal College), If it was Middlesbourgh the pusher would be bankrupt because the home team (plays at Riverside Stadium) were relagated and the car would be Red.

One I find the most amusing is
