Well I might have the pm wrong but the gist was that noon was flying to 7pm and playing games was saying

When you playing games you are having fun

24 hr clock has no am/pm, it only applies to 12hr clock.
therefore 7am is 07:00 and 7pm is 19:00

In the UK 19:30pm is in 24Hr clock so it translates to 7:30pm in 12Hr mode

If it was in the morning
It will by 07:30am or 7:30am

12:00am - 19:30pm so noon to 7:30pm

it should be "time flies when you're (or you are) having fun"
so the numbers are wrong.
The clue also implies "time flies by when you're having fun" as it say 12:00 floats to 19:30, also no such thing as 19:30pm

I see. Obviously we've had a lot more cases here in the UK, and they are on the rise again. I am having my booster next week.

I guess 76 is still young! Australia was a bit complacent in the roll-out due to our isolation we had few cases although NSW and ViC are having a surge of the delta variant at present

Aah, I've had two, but I expect either you're young or the vaccine distribution programme was different in Australia. (I'm in England (UK) ) Also, I work for the NHS so was one of the first in priority, after the very vulnerable.

Maybe CrossDowns board would be the place to ask

Does anyone know how many tiles there are at the beginning of the game? The rules say 100, but that is clearly incorrect.
