Playing The Game According To Hoyle!

     But you get nothing for two pairs in The Village! Like the fact there are two ex-Admirals in ‘Arrival,’ and dressed identically. The electrician and gardener are identical, either twins or clones, and there are three Number 66’s. In ‘Free For All’ identical twins, the photographer and the operator of The Tally Ho dispenser share the same sub-divided number 113b and 113c. There are two Number 243’s, a laboratory technician and the bomb disposal man in ‘Hammer Into Anvil.’ Then there is ‘The Schizoid Man-Curtis-Number 12. I suppose it had to be 12, two times six is twelve, and 12 is a doppelganger for 6. Not forgetting of course that 6 and 1 are also identical! Number 8 in ‘It’s Your Funeral’ bears a remarkable resemblance to the young woman who hands her the daily prognosis report on Number 6. It would seem that twins, look-a-likes and the sharing of a number go hand in hand in The Village. They might have sub-divided the number 6 for 6b instead of using 12!

Be seeing you
