Hi there! Have been playing Trivia for about a month now and have to admit to being completely hooked. Any suggestions for dealing with such an addiction?

Hi. I'm also from Cape Town, South Africa. Welcome to the forums. The best way to deal with the addiction is to keep playing.

Welcome aboard, FX, and your addiction is perfectly normal. No-one here knows how to get out, either.

Hi from Ireland and welcome to the Forums. Best cure for addiction to the games has already been suggested - create more space and time to indulge the addiction!

Welcome FX5 and BigglesS. Just hope you both know what you have let yourselves in for!
Where in South Africa do you live BigglesS?
PS: where did you get the name from? My brother called me Baby Biggles when I was young (I was the youngest).
