A fun game

This is a very simple game all you have to do is say A-Z backwards. Time yourselves. Whoever gets the lowest time wins.

Re: A fun game

nice but the game is really meant for stress relieving.
I didnt mean that you write a code for it, i meant how long it takes you to do it in your head.

Re: A fun game

Of course, there's the old gag of simply saying the phrase "Z to A backwards!"

I've done this so much, I can teach anybody else to do it in about 5 minutes.

Just for fun, I also learned to say the alphabet backwards and forwards simultaneously (Starting with Z, the A, then Y, then B, and so on):
