Comments about all grids

@urbanbaboon @ #15448: 7/10 once you see the first the others follow. Don't understand the Egg, Better than average game here. (1 hour, 56 minutes ago)

Omegaman @ #15265: The scar connection is very deep! (2 hours, 46 minutes ago)

Omegaman @ #15262: More minority specialist know!edge required here and surely just athletes should be accepted for the one group and comparative adjectives for another? (2 hours, 52 minutes ago)

kittymcg @ #15441: Superb! Really well crafted. At least three of the categories are simple, common words not obscure knowledge. (3 hours, 47 minutes ago)

Andy P @ #15441: Echo other comments really, scored 3/10, didn’t enjoy how difficult it was but did appreciate its cleverness. Cheers (3 hours, 57 minutes ago)

Dude @ #13689: Great! (3 hours, 59 minutes ago)

Dude @ #13701: Still doesn't accept 'Monopoly'! Please change this; we can't be expected to write down exactly what you have written. (4 hours, 6 minutes ago)

Steve h @ #15443: 3 lines within 30seconds then a blank for the pubs. Not bad (4 hours, 15 minutes ago)

xoAlto @ #15422: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_bottlenose_whale (4 hours, 26 minutes ago)

Steve h @ #15444: Nothing then 3 answers that will take some beating (4 hours, 29 minutes ago)

Steve h @ #15447: Wasn’t having it at first then saw the will line. 5pts for me .good one (4 hours, 35 minutes ago)

bonehead @ #15447: I'm looking forward to the comments on this one. (4 hours, 36 minutes ago)

LB @ #15248: Didn't accept royal children or west end shows :( (4 hours, 55 minutes ago)

LB @ #15444: Agree with Orlando :( (6 hours ago)

CritiqueKing @ #15258: Nice! Semi tricky. Amusing explanations. Also agree with mythical beasts. A- (6 hours, 3 minutes ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #15444: 4/10 ...this one isn't for everyone. (6 hours, 14 minutes ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #15445: 3/10 solid. (6 hours, 19 minutes ago)

Steve h @ #15445: Politician line is a good one (6 hours, 33 minutes ago)

Orlando @ #15445: Very nice grid. Got the links but had a hard time sorting the groups due to clever herrings. (7 hours, 56 minutes ago)

Dave T @ #15446: Had retail outlets which it didn’t give me. No idea on Lrummydashoan Kids (8 hours, 39 minutes ago)

Quizzer @ #15445: Good grid, but Bismarck is misspelt, which confused me and took me down a different path (9 hours, 17 minutes ago)

Jon @ #15440: sets were lucky, should have got the queen reference though (9 hours, 39 minutes ago)

Jon @ #15443: Found it pipsy tbh. (9 hours, 49 minutes ago)

Kirstie @ #15431: Calm down ladies (10 hours, 6 minutes ago)

Orlando @ #15444: Got a big fat zero. Haven't heard of most of the stuff in this grid. (10 hours, 10 minutes ago)

Kirstie @ #15431: Calm down ladies (10 hours, 15 minutes ago)

Orlando @ #15441: 5/10. Very tricky but i liked it. (10 hours, 16 minutes ago)

Kirstie @ #15436: Actually Peekay, I got it (10 hours, 20 minutes ago)

Kirstie @ #15433: Animals??? (10 hours, 24 minutes ago)

Kirstie @ #15440: Nice one Gerard (10 hours, 30 minutes ago)

Kirstie @ #15442: Bit tough like (10 hours, 35 minutes ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #15443: 3/10 Maybe it's a USA vs UK thing, but this was really difficult. Reading the answers, I only found the Meridian line, over the top. Decent grid. (10 hours, 37 minutes ago)

JonBob @ #15440: Very nice. Next time try to align your parts of speech a bit better; "Trainers" doesn't fit its category in the same way the other three do, which is confusing and a bit unsatisfying. An item should either be an example of a category, or it should be a wordplay thing (e.g. a word follows this or precedes this), not a mix of both in a single category. (11 hours, 35 minutes ago)

anthony @ #15443: a good grid (11 hours, 39 minutes ago)

anon @ #4155: Fave so far! (11 hours, 47 minutes ago)

DoubleHappy @ #15442: neat & nice (12 hours, 9 minutes ago)

Orlando @ #15443: Two groups (Red Dragon was the tricky one) and four links. Liked it, especially the Green Dragon line. (12 hours, 20 minutes ago)

Peekay @ #15441: Brilliant, but very difficult (12 hours, 47 minutes ago)

Peekay @ #15443: Nice, liked this one a lot 10/10 (12 hours, 56 minutes ago)

Aetees @ #15442: Fairly straightforward but very satisfying. Thank you. (13 hours, 25 minutes ago)

anon @ #8355: docked my score cuz I spelled McCartney wrong. :o( (17 hours ago)

Nb @ #15091: Should be Boltzmann. Also that can be swapped with Bell making the solution not unique. Still got it although didn't get 10/10 due to answer recognition (18 hours ago)

lindy @ #15436: Oregano is a herb not a spice. No chance getting the cucumber line. (20 hours, 40 minutes ago)

DoubleHappy @ #15437: Cheers ppl, thanks for feedback * I think I must have played grid 15097 - and unconsciously ripped it off * Lingua Franca being of Italian origin does look dubious * Missing answer in german group is "Weltanschauung" (World view) (22 hours, 19 minutes ago)

bonehead @ #15437: nice idea (1 day, 3 hours ago)

Hotwheels @ #15440: Great little grid....got there eventually, great crossovers (1 day, 3 hours ago)

Omegaman @ #15258: Would have expected "mythical beasts" to be accepted for the legendary animals. (1 day, 3 hours ago)

Peekay @ #15440: Cheers, Nice to get good feedback :) (1 day, 3 hours ago)

David @ #67: Pretty easy groups but tricky connections, I thought the Becketts were British PMs and the sculptors Italian Artists. (1 day, 3 hours ago)

cat @ #15422: a bottlenose is a type of dolphin not a type of whale (1 day, 3 hours ago)

bonehead @ #15440: best grid for a while, 10/10 but only just, good crossovers (1 day, 3 hours ago)

Peekay @ #15440: Should be medium....sorry guys, fat fingers (1 day, 4 hours ago)

Andy P @ #15431: Cool. I think I will avoid links based on pronunciation for a while, nevertheless :-) (1 day, 5 hours ago)

Only Me @ #15436: LB, I think it should read 50%. No, I didn't get that right either. (1 day, 7 hours ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #15431: My criticism isn't meant as anything. As a US Fan of the game, there's about 30% of things you all take as common, I literally never heard of. And if you've played my board, I get a lot of grief for being "tremendously obscure." The homophone thing works like that. These should just be chalked up to cultural differences, not taken offence to, nor too seriously, and one can play one of the other 10K boards out there. (1 day, 9 hours ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #15097: 7/10..I'm glad the game makers are putting in this kind of effort & that players aren't discouraging it for being a touch difficult. Thanks (1 day, 9 hours ago)

Orlando @ #15431: We can't agree about homophones unless we use a common frame of reference. Standard English and Standard American English are familiar to everyone, including those who speak a non-standard variety of the language. Online dictionary definitions usually include phonetic transcriptions (/fəˈnet.ɪk trænˈskrɪp.ʃənz/). It's easy to check whether two words that are spelt differently have identical transcriptions or not. Otherwise, we'll be seeing more debates like this one. (1 day, 9 hours ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #15437: 6/10 This was certainly a challenge. Meant in a very positive way, unique take on this game, that is much appreciated, because of not in spite of its difficulty. a clear 5 star effort. (1 day, 9 hours ago)

LB @ #15436: Don't get the last one :( (1 day, 9 hours ago)

Orlando @ #15437: Have a look at grid !5097. (1 day, 10 hours ago)

FirstGofer @ #15439: Good construction but in this context, Sat should be SAT. Had to look up Cat... that should also be full caps. Unless, of course, you went for Gcse. Also, didn't accept synonyms. (1 day, 10 hours ago)

FirstGofer @ #15437: didn't get the groups in time, but clocked the theme. Good, innovative grid. (1 day, 10 hours ago)

Endpaper @ #15437: Very enjoyable grid. Since I assume I’m in the company of many fellow pedants and trivia enthusiasts I will add that I was so surprised to see ‘lingua franca’ was in the Italian group that I looked it up. Apparently the language it’s in is in fact called Lingua Franca! This language from around the Levant was the origin of the term ‘lingua franca’, with lingua being derived from Italian and Portuguese, while franca comes from Arabic and Greek. Found that rather pleasing - and it didn’t stop the grid still working well! (1 day, 11 hours ago)

Peekay @ #15436: Good luck anyone getting the cucumber link (1 day, 11 hours ago)

Peekay @ #14471: asdf......Lamb doesn't have an L to replace?? (1 day, 12 hours ago)

Peekay @ #14471: Ok , so just realised you meant I's not Is......still stand by the other points (1 day, 12 hours ago)

MB @ #15432: At last - 10/10 ! (1 day, 12 hours ago)

Mister Tom @ #1916: +1 star for "badonkadonk" (1 day, 13 hours ago)

Jon @ #15432: (1 day, 13 hours ago)

chris @ #15432: very good, like the clever way Cluedo names were used but were not part of the solution (1 day, 13 hours ago)

Aetees @ #15430: A good grid let down by the double clue. (1 day, 13 hours ago)

Peekay @ #14471: Only 1 word from the replace line is actually a word...waist, Isan, Isamb and Tois are not words I am familiar with, but even if they are words, too obscure for guessing. 3 of your Mountain chains are already referred to in the singular, so the clue is redundant, and the 4th doesn't work because Andy is not singular for Andies. American Pie line has references that could genuinely be from anything..nothing specifically ties them to the clue, so no chance of guessing, and Ark and Arc are 2 entirely separate things, so there is no way you can bundle them together just because they sound similar. Not being picky for the sake of it I promise...just constructive criticism. :) (1 day, 14 hours ago)

FirstGofer @ #15431: To add to the Ruck debate... many people say ruck with an 'uh' sound, and rook 'oo' sound. Otherwise, good one! (1 day, 14 hours ago)

koshatnik @ #15433: Nicely done. Thought the skate group must have had a more specific connection I couldn't spot, but I'll take the points. Liked the Bingo group in particular. (1 day, 15 hours ago)

Quibbleuse @ #15423: Shouldn't that be "EZenough4y'all"? (1 day, 17 hours ago)

asdf @ #14471: The clue with the Ls makes no sense. Iamb does not contain an L to replace, and IAN is a name and should not be included in a word clue like this (1 day, 20 hours ago)

asdf @ #14540: Answers too restrictive (1 day, 21 hours ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #2004: 6/10..the anagram thing, some interesting things attempted. (1 day, 23 hours ago)

WJC @ #15424: I got three. Apparent after the sorting. Cheers. (2 days ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #15391: 5/10 some ingenuity. I'm unfamiliar with Swan and Odette, but I stillable to get 2 on the front and 3 on the back. solid. (2 days, 1 hour ago)

Binks @ #15421: Too restrictive on the link section (2 days, 2 hours ago)

Orlando @ #15432: Liked this one. Good grid. 5/10. Only found one group but the links were clear. (2 days, 2 hours ago)

Andy P @ #15432: Also 5/10 for me, some bits easy and some bits very tricky. Cheers (2 days, 2 hours ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #15432: 5/10 interesting mix (2 days, 2 hours ago)

@urbanbaboon @ #15433: 10/10 got em all, but didn't think it was too easy. A well put together board. (2 days, 2 hours ago)

The Linguist @ #15431: Time for a bath or is it a barth for the hoity-toity or a beth for the Queen. (2 days, 4 hours ago)

Peekay @ #15432: Quite nice, not too troubling, well set. (2 days, 4 hours ago)

Peekay @ #13745: Moors worked for me (2 days, 4 hours ago)

bluetruck @ #15430: Double mobile - very poor (even worse than T Mobile's coverage) Would've been pretty good other than that (2 days, 4 hours ago)

Dave @ #15421: Too effin' wicked hahd. (2 days, 4 hours ago)

leilita @ #15431: Rook/ruck and Porn/pawn homonyms definitely do not work with a Scottish accent either I’m afraid...for a start there’s two syllables in the word “porn” 😂...but I saw where you were going... (2 days, 5 hours ago)

Dude @ #13745: Moors was not accepted. Poor (2 days, 5 hours ago)

Andy P @ #15431: How would you pronounce them then? (2 days, 5 hours ago)

Peekay @ #13751: PB....Port is left.....I'm in the Navy, unless I've been turning the wrong way for 27 years :) (2 days, 6 hours ago)

Peekay @ #13751: As mentioned, squeezing Port in to Herring another group is fine, however it has to be valid, it isn't it's a direction as stated.....and also very mean on definitions...battles should be valid, otherwise enjoyed it (2 days, 6 hours ago)

Peekay @ #15420: FirstGofer......Yes, see it now.....I'm of an age you know, creaky eyes :) (2 days, 6 hours ago)

Bryant @ #2059: best online casino casino games real money casino games slots kasino slot online (2 days, 7 hours ago)

LB @ #15431: Ruck is no way pronounced the same as rook! (2 days, 7 hours ago)

Steve h @ #15424: Never heard of a few but stumbled into a full house .not bad (2 days, 8 hours ago)

Andy P @ #15431: Really surprised by the comments about ruck. I would pronounce them the exact same way and I'm from near Chester in England. I can't visualise any other way of pronouncing them to not be accurate for the purposes of this question. (2 days, 8 hours ago)
