The Commonwealth Games 🌸

The Commonwealth Games are currently being held in Birmingham, England and, as someone who has a wonderful connection with the city of Birmingham, I thought it would be fun to create a little game from it. Often called the “Friendly Games” it is an international multi-sport event among athletes from the Commonwealth. Not a big as the Olympics but just as important!


So, it works like this… You are registering yourself for the commonwealth games.

Below are the countries in which you can represent, as well as the disciplines.

You pick your country (doesn’t have to be your own country, just one you like!) and discipline, and post something along the lines of…I’d like to register to represent (insert country) in the discipline of (insert discipline). ”

I will then get back to you with a registration form that you can fill in and post. Eventually we will have a plethora of athletes ready to take part in our imaginary commonwealth games!
