Something well wicked this way comes

Here’s a wonderfully Goreyesque Flash game called A Murder Of Scarecrows.

I’m a sucker for any game with a title that’s a pun on the collective noun for crows. A murder of crows is right up there with a murmuration of starlings, a parliment of owls and a charm of hummingbirds.

I’ve often been tempted to make up my own collective nouns. How about…

an array of programmers,

a blanket of laptops,

a wall of clients.
