This game is really popular with our students. The rules are easy and the equipment is simple. One starts with:


  • A flat surface.
  • A box (une clayette) that’s just a bit too small for the purpose.
  • A camera.
  • Two adorable young cats, in this case Biff and Bella. Biff is the black-and-white male, Bella is the white-and-tabby female. They were born on 27th March.
  • A tendancy towards using anthropomorphism

At the appropriate moment, a photograph is taken, then a caption is supplied. Here are some recent ones:
