    Thefive Bellamy books are A Century of Charades (), A Second Century of Charades (1 ), A Third Century of Charades (), More Charades (), and Broken Words: A Fifth Century of Charades (). The editor has available for sale two copies of each of the first two books and one of the third, for six dollars apiece. My second, when from labour we retreat, Far from polite, yet offers us a seat: My whole is but my second more complete. (Armchair) (1) Acting charades. In the early 19th century, people began to act out charades as a parlour game. The players divide themselves into two parties, who take it in turn to act and to guess the word.

    For those fortunate enough to own one or more of the Bellamy books, here are the solutions to his puzzles. The answers to A Century of Charades are contained in Harland Ballard's Open Sesame, and the answers to A Second Century of Charades are contained in Re-Open Sesame. I am indebted to Will Shortz for supplying the answers to More Charades. Here are some common clues used in charades: To indicate a book, pretend to read a book. To indicate a song, pretend to sing. To indicate a movie, pretend to crank an old movie camera. To indicate the number of words, hold up that many fingers. (Then hold up one finger before pantomiming the first word, two fingers before the second, and so on.).
