Beat the celebrities in “The Countess and the Jumping Champion” – NRK Culture and entertainment

-Dthis is my first gong. I have never played mobile games before, I only played solitaire on the iPad, says Rune Gokstad.

– But Øystein is like created for that here. You are used to sitting in the evening with something on board in front of a computer, he teasingly tells his colleague Øystein Bache.

We all know Butler James and Countess Miss Sophie who got together for Miss Sophie’s 90th birthday.

Every Christmas Eve we meet imaginary friends Sir Toby, Admiral von Schneider, Mister Pomeroy and Mister Winterbottom, and we laugh at James, who grows more and more satiated the further we go through dinner.

I think we will be far enough. I think there are people who have more competitive instincts than us, says Adelina Ibishi, program manager at P3morgen.

She managed 29 skin traps with 9 units of alcohol on board, barely beaten by her radio partner Martin Lepperød.

-Dthis is what makes the joy of a mobile game, namely that it can give such beautiful sensations. I ended up in the basement because I thought I had been beaten.
