This game is like the Guess The Jane Austen Novel Game that I posted a few weeks ago. Below are groups of four names (first names and surnames) each from a major work by Charles Dickens. The names I chose should make it a bit trickier to guess which novel each group refers to but not too hard.
To Play: Guess which Charles Dickens story the groups of four names below refer to. Leave your guesses in a comment. I'll respond with your score. Guess as many times as you wish. Answers will be posted next Saturday.
Helpful Hint: At the very bottom of this post is a list on the sixteen major works by Charles Dickens that will be the answers to the clues. You are welcome to use that list if you wish but you can try playing without looking at the list for ideas.
Scoring: 10 points for each correctly guessed novel or unfinished story. High score of 160 points can be earned!
