Come and celebrate as we all pull together for the hopes of a better, stronger Britain and commemorate this momentous occasion.

DJ Bailey is bringing Madame Lala's on the road today at 1pm SL (9pm UK) in the main Hub, with the theme of being Patriotic.

Thanks to illiana for donating this Blitz game to the hub area.

You have to score as close to 31 as you can using the same suit.  You discard one card each time you pick up.  When you're close to 31, you "knock" and everyone gets one more round before their cards are revealed on the table.  The person with the lowest score loses a life and so it continues until each player is eliminated, leaving one victorious winner...

.. who just happened to be me on this occasion.
