On the old forum there was the association game. It proved to be a bit of craic so I’m resurrecting the topic again. The format of the game is to basically post a word or words, linked to what was previously posted. This can include a character’s name, buildings, events, vehicles and general happenings etc. I will initiate the thread with: Giuseppe Gioberti (the man who founded Falcon Crest, circa 1875). The Gioberti family vineyards in Italy are infested with ‘Black Rot’. These are the same vineyards Giuseppe took vines from in the late 1800s, to start up Falcon Crest. Newcomer Francesca the rightful 1/3 owner of Falcon Crest arrives in California, to get the money she needs to eradicate the infestation. There is an informal meeting happening, in the FC living room between Angela and her new found sister. However a party happens soon after their meeting. The Italian sister meets other Tuscany Valley residents and delays Angela’s offer of buying her out, (a scene from season 4, 1984 – ’85): Francesca: “I need money to save our vineyards in Italy.” Angela eyes up the opportunity: “Well why don’t you sell your share of the estate back to me? Then you would have the money you need and I would have my land.” Francesca: “Your lawyer Reardon can he handle the necessary papers?” Angela: “Of course we will talk to him together.” Chao-Li joins their company, providing them with vintage Pinot Noir, before he takes the sisters to the party.
