    A game idea inspired by "The Pub Landlord"

    Each post answers the post before explaining how England "beat" that country.
    Then nominates the next country.
    edit: No quibbling and keep it light-hearted!

    We'll begin easily & slowly.

    Germany

    Q East Timor
    A.
    Portugal and hence Portugese Timor, was allied to Phillip of Spain
    during Anglo-Spanish War (1585-1604). Though strictly a draw it
    was a points victory for England as the Treaty was signed in London!
