About this deal

The Promotion will run on Thursdays between 13 January 2022 to 30 December 2024 on LBC Global is the Promoter. If nothing else, this would serve as the closest thing to James O’Brien himself giving you a robust dressing down live on air for ringing in with an uninformed answer which cannot be substantiated and which you refuse accept as incorrect.

Our gaming group approached this with varying degrees of application - some were burning to get going, whereas I was keen to take my time to come up with alternative but plausible false answers, but felt under pressure from the others to start playing whilst doing so. Please ensure you have read and understood our Privacy Policy and our Prize Provider’s Privacy Policy before entering any Promotion. We and the Prize Provider may transfer and process personal data outside of the EEA and UK for the purposes of administering the Promotion. In contrast to the disconnect many felt at this time, Mystery Hour almost felt like a greatest hits album of humanity: strangers from across the nation coming together for an hour a week, irrespective of political leanings and grievances, to learn from each other.While this may sound a bit petty, space is a serious consideration for avid board game enthusiasts and families who need to justify a game’s place on their shelf. Well let’s talk about those… You have three titles which bring branded formats into the real world: In for a Penny, Rolling In It and The James O’Brien Mystery Hour Board Game. The James O’Brien Mystery Hour Game features 250 questions – like ‘Why don’t Cadbury Flakes melt in the microwave? The size of the scoring board is responsible for the box size, but the excess cardboard padding could have been easily replaced with more question cards to boost the longevity of the game (more on that later).

Shelagh Fogarty began her LBC career as a guest presenter in 2014, and her balanced and calm presenting style soon earned her a permanent role. Every week, James O'Brien enlists the help of LBC listeners to solve the questions you've always wondered the answer to.For a start, all of the question cards could be quite easily distributed before dinner to allow players to invent clever false answers in good time. Only just over two years – but as you can see, we’ve already secured a number of exciting licensed titles. I tried to invent one answer “on the hoof” - I was successful, luring one of the other players into choosing it as the correct answer, making sure I stumbled through the “correct answer” text to make it seem like I was making it up on the spot. It was actually Stephen that introduced us to James O’Brien, and it was coincidental that our team are all avid listeners to his LBC radio show, enjoying The Mystery Hour every Thursday at 12. We are registered with the Phone-paid Services Authority (“PSA”): registration number ORG832-96388-41101.

It’s really informative and only a couple of weeks ago I learnt that if you shake an egg before cracking it open to fry, it ensures the yolk sits neatly in the middle of the egg.

The informative, witty, conversational, argumentative board game based on James O’Brien’s Mystery Hour. I’m currently finishing off Queen Secret, A Kind Of Magic ebook as a publisher, so this is a good distraction while I am editing. The objective of the Mystery Hour board game is to convince other players with a plausible false answer whilst answering other players questions correctly. We realised that not everybody could come up with their own false answers… We needed to provide sample false answers for each question – that was the biggest challenge by far. IMPORTANT: The Promotion is subject to these Specific Rules and the General Terms and Conditions which are available here (together, the ‘Promotion Terms and Conditions’).
