Grugen @ #13713: Good grid, brilliantly devious (6 minutes ago)
Mr. Flibble @ #13769: Brilliant - but the one grouping didn't have the two obvious terms in it (biblical, scriptural), though "bible" was the answer. Really enjoyable! Thank you! (1 hour, 21 minutes ago)
Grugen @ #13721: Good grid, nice one! (1 hour, 46 minutes ago)

Caz231231 @ #13748: Champions League winners should be accepted. Same with currencies. (7 hours, 35 minutes ago)
PB @ #13769: Good grid but the tricky part with numbers is you can always find another solution. For example swap the 1 and the 125 and you have a group where every number is cubed and another group where every number is divisible by 5. (10 hours, 25 minutes ago)
stevo67 @ #1996: Pelican rise is missing an S (11 hours, 49 minutes ago)

RossChris @ #13765: Thanks, Mr Tom. Nopal is a cactus, apparently. I was going to use "no parking" but thought it better to use a single word. Stump would have been a superior choice. (19 hours, 12 minutes ago)
Mister Tom @ #13765: Like the Duffy Group. Nopal is a new one on me, think I used stump :-) (19 hours, 20 minutes ago)

Graham @ #13749: Good grid, but I think you need to revisit the keywords for the answers. British Prime Ministers, European Cities of Culture and Cats all came up as wrong... I would like to argue that they were in fact right! (1 day, 22 hours ago)
N @ #10509: Marvellous grid - thank you! (1 day, 22 hours ago)
RossChris @ #13753: I think there is more than one solution here. Your building society connection could also be categorised as towns/cities in Yorkshire; and as Beverley also has a racecourse it could be switched with Ripon as a place in Yorkshire and be a correct solution. (1 day, 23 hours ago)
chris @ #13745: moor not accepted.
fish- better if the word either precedes or follows, not effective if it's either.
cock- this group was OK although no red herrings.
ice hockey/curling?? pick one and stick to it.
Learn to group things and include red herrings and plenty of key words for acceptable answers. When you've learnt to do this then keep posting new ones.

chris @ #13747: Canary Islands not named after birds.
BANTAMS is correct spelling.
One flew over the Cuckoo's nest (note the apostrophe) + generally poor group.

RossChris @ #13699: Well done on providing an, er, acceptable answer!!!
I just tried typing "muses" for the same connection and it was accepted. Clearly, any word with a u and s consecutively in it is going to be suitable. Much watch out for that in the future. (3 days, 18 hours ago)

Toast Wiz, sitting here nursing the flu.
Which in hindsight isn't a bad thing because I've just found the cure... Whiskey (see quiz explanations)... Actually it might not be whiskey but it seems pretty familiar and the bottle is the correct shape... Well the correct colour... Looking at it now it looks more like a sauce bottle... but hey ho! at least it's glass.
One sec... hic... Brandy maybe, but cheers anyway. (3 days, 20 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13725: Sorry for the typo, folks. The entry should of course read SKIPJACK TUNA and not skipjack tina, though this does not affect the connection in any way.
Chris wants to know who skipjack tina is as she suspects it might be a woman I have been seeing on the side without telling her!! (3 days, 20 hours ago)
