The Halloween ‘5 saucer’ game was a terryfying part of my 70s Irish childhood – the wedding ring, the soil, the cloth, the water, the coin. Modern version? – A pile of Pyrite, a Tracker mortgage cert, Jobpath entry form, Dublin rental agreement, Iona Institute membership. Scary!

Anyone?

    Was the “victim” blindfolded, spun around and then had to dip their finger into a random saucer to foretell their future?

    Until this day I never heard of the 5 saucers game! Admittedly, I never read much Joyce, either. I admit to starting Ulysses, but I never finished the first chapter before my ‘this guy is a pretentious git’ reflex kicked in.
