Adjudicator @ #20710: You spelled Tiercel WRONG both in the table and your explanation of the reason the group should be bound together. It is not TERCEL nor is it TECEL. Made it mostly impossible to solve (1 week, 3 days ago)

Rene @ #20920: Very easy (1 week, 3 days ago)

Peekay @ #20903: Wow, not fun at all, far, far to specialised (1 week, 3 days ago)

JD @ #20927: Good one! (1 week, 4 days ago)

Jon @ #20903: TOO TOO DIFFICULT. (1 week, 4 days ago)

DP @ #20921: always excellent (1 week, 4 days ago)

Zbj @ #20923: Very disappointed with this. Had a great idea mixing the pulp fiction characters with a president group that doesn’t exist and then adding in a few Ian McEwan novels with a Dutch place names red herring then it all went pear-shaped and have ended up with a grid that has an alternative solution (Hague and Roache are interchangeable). Sorry for wasting everyone’s time. I’ve rates it 1 star myself so it won’t show up on the default homepage. Now I’m going to go and end it all. Goodbye. (1 week, 4 days ago)

Christobal @ #20912: Nice grid! It couldn't be David Grey, as his name is spelt Gray. According to dictionary.com, either spelling is acceptable for the colour, though Grey is more prevalent in the UK, and Gray in the US. (1 week, 4 days ago)

Matt King @ #20890: " Synonyms for house" not accepted, "signs" not accepted (fine, possibly non-specific), "Gentleman's magasines" not accepted (fine, misspelled) Took 38 seconds to find the groups. (1 week, 4 days ago)

Matt King @ #20912: 40 seconds, but the colours group was a nice touch. (1 week, 4 days ago)

Matt King @ #20916: I don't want to be that guy, but "Benine" is not a word. It's spelled "Benign". Aside from that your connections are way too specific for a Medium-ranked grid. Nice groups though. (1 week, 4 days ago)

EDJC @ #9384: The tennis one is a) obscure (cf bowling a snooker, where it's the main objective) and b) WRONG: By the same token of being 5-0 down in the first, you could be 2 sets and 5-0 down in the third. Therefore your answer would be 31 games in a row. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Veston Pance @ #20916: A good grid but the connections a bit narrow and tenuous in one case. (1 week, 5 days ago)

H @ #20917: Don't give up though. I'm sure you will get better. (1 week, 5 days ago)

VJ @ #20917: Bad spelling is confusing, as it ends up not being relevant. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Ragman @ #20917: Rubbish.....tenuous is one thing, but these are tortuous links- space? Regista? Very poor..... (1 week, 5 days ago)

Smolenskoy @ #20908: Liked the topics but with 8 car manufacturers names in a single grid, It is almost impossible to solve the first part. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Aetees @ #20907: Just to be clear this one wasn't me. Not sure why someone (I assume just one person as I can't imagine multiple people doing it) posts grids in my name every so often. Odd really. (1 week, 5 days ago)

neilb4god @ #20907: What've you done with the real Aetees? (1 week, 5 days ago)

jane@pow @ #20901: Great - I actually got the whole thing! (1 week, 6 days ago)

CLoverdale @ #20900: Another good grid. I managed to find two groups, and three connections, but 'play' got the better of me! (1 week, 6 days ago)

Benedicto @ #20740: Writing "Exceptionally well done if you got this one" like you're so proud you came up with it is just beyond me. "Three letter man's name" is not specific enough to differentiate two otherwise identical groups. (2 weeks, 1 day ago)

Hawks @ #20880: Among other things, I convinced myself that there were black things (light, beard, puck) and brown things (muscovado, stone, Murphy). In the end, I got precisely 0 points, but enjoyed it, especially Lime Rick. (2 weeks, 1 day ago)

Lindybeige @ #231: In the answer, it is nice to point out what the connections are. I got 10/10, but I still don't know the connection between dice and 21. I thought dice were in the 6 category. (2 weeks, 2 days ago)

Pendragon @ #15796: It didn't accept the red herring of armada as a fleet synonym (2 weeks, 2 days ago)

luskentyre @ #20815: Very good... My excuse is that I'm stuffed with pizza and that has slowed down my cognitive processes. (3 weeks ago)

jane@pow @ #20815: Scientific units - pfft.! Defeated me. I got the first two rows, though. Food and satirists! Kicking myself that I didn't get Turkey (or turkey). Nice one. (3 weeks ago)

Christobal @ #20813: Solved it, but never heard of the heroines! 😊 (3 weeks ago)

me @ #20800: far too easy 31 secs to solve (3 weeks ago)

msicism @ #12432: Speaking as a Yank, I get where you're going with the US/UK words category, but 'pavement' doesn't exactly fit (and 'tap' is iffy) because those are words in America. They just refer to different things. Whereas Cluedo and aubergine, as terms, don't really exist here. (Another example would be courgette. Or knickers.) So it's a great concept, but I suspect it only works one way. I would never have associated "pavement" with "aubergine." But maybe I'm just thick. Which is entirely possible. (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Gog-ette @ #20800: Loved this!! Senegal and Sweden almost stopped me solving the wall but I got there in the end. (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Gog-ette @ #20804: Nice grid. Agree with others' comments about the description needed for the grouping. Good first effort! Keep at it! (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

H @ #20811: Beat me. Good grid. (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Hugh @ #583: Good fun! Easier than I thought it would be. (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

christobal @ #20800: Flags are too small to see properly. (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Cloverdale @ #20811: Another good grid. We got 6/10 again! Even with the blue group in front of us, we didn't twig... D'oh! (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Freda @ #20804: I still don't understand. What's a Game of Thrones? Is it like Poker? (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Tbone @ #20804: Nice warmup grid before doing some harder ones. Would reiterate the below advice to include the link for each category, not just more details on the 4 items. (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Cloverdale @ #20806: Great first grid!! We got the connections, but couldn't work out all of the groups. We scored 6/10, which isn't bad. Some nicely obscure terms and a couple of red herrings. We'd like to see some more grids. (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Bob @ #20747: Great grid. Kicking myself in places! (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Mister Tom @ #20804: Not a bad first effort. Found this quite straightforward despite never watching GoT (guessed the link)- the animals don't really obscure anything because of the singular/ plural differences. But easy puzzles are not a disaster on a Sunday morning. (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Pip @ #20463: Just give yourself 10 points, it'a game! (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

cb @ #20800: wtf (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

idel101 @ #20804: Apologies, its my first submission! They're all sigils from 'Game Of Thrones' (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

PERNICKERTY @ #20804: Thanks Freda, you took the words right out of my mouth! (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Freda @ #20804: So what is the link for the kraken group? None of your descriptions mean anything to me . (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

barry @ #2748: enjoyed that (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

Joe @ #20798: not good (3 weeks, 1 day ago)

idel101 @ #4165: Billy/Billie group stands out a bit too much for me, needs a crossover (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

idel101 @ #20799: Gave the answer to the last group as 'Something to do with typewriters' and was given it! (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

idel @ #20799: (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

VJ @ #20797: Tough board (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

VJ @ #20798: Some tough connections. (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

VJ @ #20799: some tough groups, but great connections (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

Only Me @ #20801: Same as Poohbear. (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

Poohbear @ #20801: Clever grid but too specialist for me - the India Flag is a group I’d never have got. (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

Hal @ #20796: Don't bother. (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

tasty face @ #3712: Top work! (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

Spoilsport @ #20796: All very clever, but I'd rather see grids that are family friendly :-( (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

Cynic @ #15141: The word famous is used very loosely here - by which I mean it's twaddle. (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

Joe @ #20797: Study and Siren don't really seem to be the same type of answer as the other two in that group. Ramp or Bully might have been better. (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

Keir @ #20799: I thought I was done, but at the last minute or so I managed to find the numbers group, got the R one and somehow connected the last group on an absolute gamble with no lives lost So yeah, this was a pretty good wall, though the Cambridgeshire one was hard, I don't know who was supposed to get that (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

Jime @ #20785: It's Chico time (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

cb @ #20795: Nice one Blinker.. (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

cb @ #20796: Excellent..misread the 'ell' and 'eel' twice and "blew it"! (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

cb @ #20797: Grrrrrr! ;-) (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

DonkySchlong @ #20796: Ridiculous. Impossible to do a grid and jerk off in 3 minutes. (3 weeks, 2 days ago)

A @ #20785: Well done. Made sense unlike so many (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Christobal @ #20796: Keep it clean. You wouldn't see that one on Only Connect. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Bren @ #20789: little people should be correct for goblin, Imp, etc (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Bren @ #20796: Absolutely stupid (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Christobal @ #20799: Nice one! Like the red herrings! (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Aetees @ #20795: Very good. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

VJ @ #20790: Tough but good. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

VJ @ #20795: This is great, but really tough, possibly harder than a medium. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Martin @ #20795: Yes, very well done (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Poohbear @ #20706: Nice fun grid, enjoyed it (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Joe @ #20795: Really liked this, thanks! (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Boris @ #20785: What’s Cheeko (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Boris @ #20789: Quite niche but good fun (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Boris @ #20790: Water is too obscure - is misleading (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

MJ @ #20788: Synonyms! (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

cynic @ #20781: The striped racecar is pathetic - try to do proper clues or don't bother. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Micky two pies @ #20796: five stars. took me a few tries. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

DH @ #20781: pure evil, well done (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

DH @ #20795: Nice. Appreciated the quotes around the word ironic :P (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Joe @ #20777: Terrific grid. Proud to get 10/10. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Rustic @ #20790: The inclusion of " - " as an answer sorta thumbs its nose at the format. Fun to solve, though. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Joe @ #20795: I enjoyed this: good, fresh groups. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

cynic @ #20365: Must try harder (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

cynic @ #20396: Marked down because of the Yam nonsense - it's a potato! (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Blinker @ #20790: Enjoyed it, but I don't think Joys really works in its group (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Gog-ette @ #20789: Brilliant. Loved this. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

ADB @ #5021: It's an AEROPLANE not Airplane (UK v USA) (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

ADB @ #5760: Blind Dog? and adding an s to a word to make a new word is laziness as a grouping (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

ADB @ #1659: too obscure (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

ADB @ #2239: Author needs to get a life and out more (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Gaffer @ #20764: same seas joints (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Gaffer @ #20765: up also can you trump in poker? (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Christobal @ #20788: Good grid. Don't worry if it comes up with "incorrect". *You* know its right! (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Phil b @ #20787: Any number of other things can connect the groups... tedious not tenuous (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Gaffer @ #20781: racecar!!! (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Gaffer @ #20787: got all the right groups for completely wrong reasons! (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Gaffer @ #20788: put same as GTC (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

innadired @ #3208: @oatcake eater: what disparaging nonsense! no crossovers? Vogue! Time! and it's not 16 proper nouns... (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Martin @ #20793: It didn't accept Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, apart from that it was good (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Larry. @ #20778: Good grid. I think you mean't Φ rather than Ф. (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

Christobal @ #20712: Worked for me too. Your points aren't stored anywhere. *You* know if you got the answer right or not, even if it comes up with "incorrect". It's difficult to cater for every possibility, so if it says "incorrect" but really it's right, let it go! I'm guilty of complaining about this in the past, but really, It doesn't matter in the big scheme of things. And its free! (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

RowG @ #20741: edible tubers are vegetables (3 weeks, 3 days ago)

J @ #9875: "Water" should have been allowed for precipitation group (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Konstantin @ #7218: Haven't uderstood it absolutely! (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Sid Kneebridge @ #20788: Simple stuff, but well executed and neat. (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Sid Kneebridge @ #20789: Good stuff! (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

neilb4god @ #20769: Nice grid, but did you know McKinley's had a name change? (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Aetees @ #20781: @ Bloomy, a Pegasus crossing is for use by riders on horse back. Racecar did seem a stretch but otherwise very good. (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Aetees @ #20782: Nice grid. Well done. (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

GTC @ #20788: Otherwise, great wall, though - liked the crossovers :) (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

GTC @ #20788: I used 'Fictional Lands' as the answer for the purple group and it was incorrect, and for the blue group you should probably accept 'synonyms'. (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Lyndon @ #20787: very tenuous (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Blinker @ #20777: Thanks! I might have got a bit carried away, definitely rushed in 3 minutes (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Gracie @ #17281: I loved it (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Gracie @ #18103: I really enjoyed that amazing puzzle, me and my daughter, Ruby, really liked it, it made her think and she managed to complete most of it and she is only 7 (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

cb @ #20789: Got it in the nick of time... (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Poohbear @ #20703: Enjoyed this one - the matrix ones kept me guessing until the end! (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Poohbear @ #20708: Nice grid, fun to do (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Poohbear @ #20788: Sorry - I put in lots of possible answers for that group including ‘ask’ and derivatives of some of the words in the group to try to cover all possible ways of saying that these were ways of looking for information. I didn’t think of ‘need answers’ - will try to do better next time (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Pooh @ #20789: Clever grid with good cross-overs but too hard for me - I don’t have the specialist knowledge on aircraft manufacturers. I spent most of my time trying to find planes with Spitfire in the group which I suspect you meant me to! (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

cb @ #20774: Excellent, let's just say that knowledge is required in all aspects of solving problems.. (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Bob @ #20787: I was pleased I select one group, sad I couldn't make then connection on the other three (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

cb @ #20777: Ouch, needed another 10 mins at least....'-) (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

cb @ #20781: Duh! (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

cynic @ #20678: As with others - the name grid is ridiculous - very poor (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Vee @ #3: Connections for groups two, three and four were deemed incorrect as the purple answer box appeared as a dark red one so the answer was linked to those colour clues. Likewise the next one came up as turquoise etc (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Vee @ #3: Connections for groups two, three and four were deemed incorrect as the purple answer box appeared as a dark red one so the answer was linked to those colour clues. Likewise the next one came up as turquoise etc (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Vee @ #20788: A bit miffed that 'need answers' was counted as incorrect when one of the items was questioning, which was also the answer! (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Pamela @ #20396: It's actually a fish (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Pooh @ #20787: Too tenuous for me (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Sid @ #20788: Lovely grid, not too hard, but I didn’t get that “ask” was probably the key word for the Inquiry/Examination group. (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Giggsy @ #1737: Let me ask you this...do YOU use a shaving mug? Do you? I'm waiting. Let me know at P.O. Box suck-my-butt, USA, jellylegs! (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

knife @ #20781: A striped racecar is, for me, too vague and arbitrary. Liked the misleading palindromes. (3 weeks, 4 days ago)

Aetees @ #20763: A nice grid. Not too tough. (3 weeks, 5 days ago)

adb @ #6765: Yes - WIndows 8 very much a stretch, as is 8MM - the SI symbol for millimeters is small m, capital M is Mega (3 weeks, 5 days ago)

Rob B @ #14884: Missed the toilet, as usual. The trouble and strife's gonna have a cow. (3 weeks, 5 days ago)

Pooh @ #20741: Nice grid :) (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Pooh @ #20727: Nice grid - liked the overlaps (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Sid @ #20770: A nice challenge, the Fire group I just about got, but the collective nouns group I failed. Those collective nouns are silly made-up words anyway that surely nobody ever really uses. When did you last hear David Attenborough describe a group of giraffes as a “tower”? (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Sid @ #20769: Quite easy, but absolutely lovely! (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Pooh @ #20745: Good grid but too hard for me! Thank you for giving detail on the answers - always helps! (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

cb @ #20764: Did accept seas and joints, no complaints...;-) (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Bloomy @ #12437: Took a while to remember which car brand a phantom was - hadn’t heard of the others (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Christobal @ #20758: Good grid, but not a hard one! (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Christobal @ #20760: Yep, nice n easy! 😄 (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Christobal @ #20763: Good grid, although as Jeannie says, as soon as I saw racecar it gave the game away! We say "racing car" in the uk anyway. (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Christobal @ #20764: Likewise. Didn't accept sea or joint. (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Christobal @ #20765: Hmm, it didn't accept "1st ladies" (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Bloomy @ #17903: (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Bloomy @ #7427: Too obscure (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

PB @ #20748: Groups are too vague, especially the homophones one (3 weeks, 6 days ago)

Sid @ #20747: Oops sorry, I didn't check the answers before I scored it. Although I got nothing at all, it's a pretty together grid (but too hard for me!). (4 weeks ago)

Sid @ #20748: Words that happen to be homophones isn't really a group, very tenuous - you could as easily have had Rabbit/Skyscraper/Shoe/Pimple on the grounds that they are all nouns. A nice distraction with the Isle of Wight's "Yarmouth", though, as it's obviously not as well known as the one in mainland Britain. (4 weeks ago)

Sid @ #20763: Not allowing "water transport" for the red group was a bit harsh, IMHO. Nice crossovers for Herring and Dory, had me guessing right up to the wire! (4 weeks ago)

Lindybeige @ #20748: Did not accept 'king' nor 'saint'. My guess is that you typed in 'kings'and 'saints', and the system works better if you go for shorter words. (4 weeks, 1 day ago)

Verr @ #1497: Two real problem groups here. Some of these 'homophones' are very shaky at best, and elsewhere in the English speaking world, not homophones at all. Secondly, being a non countable noun is not the same as a countable noun with an irregular (unchanging) plural. "Information", like, say, "Nationalism" just does not have a plural. It does not belong with the other three. Sorry. (1 month ago)

Gridlington @ #20728: I typed rivers and got "correct". It is sometimes tricky to cover all the possibilities when adding the answers, but one tip that is mentioned each time is to use short versions, so "comed" will cover both comedian and comedy. If H had put "river" instead of "rivers" it would have accepted both. Before complaining about the answers though, its worth creating a few grids of your own to see how tricky it is. I like to think that I cover all bases with my answers, but I still get complaints when a "correct" answer is marked wrong. (1 month ago)

me @ #8793: Programming of answer checking poor - drinks in name is same as alcoholic drinks in name. Happens often. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Lindybeige @ #2959: One of the categories has a different solution - if you put the first letter of each word at the end, it forms a new word. I think this is a better link than the one suggested. So Shark would become Harks, for example. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Lindybeige @ #3454: Said 'gods' instead of 'planets'. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Player @ #20405: “TV Sci-fi” really ought to have worked for the sc-fi group! Otherwise a good, and tough, grid! (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Squiggle @ #20372: Prime ministers and heads of state are not usually the same thing, eg The Queen is our head of state. In most democratic countries this would be a president or constitutional monarch. Churchill group a bit obscure, and could equally have contained John Major. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Jime @ #20414: Collective nouns is the technical term (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Lloyd @ #1161: 'Clipper' works for the group with hair and nails in it, and 'box' works for tools, and television etc. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #20365: Synonyms wasn't accepted. You can't expect people to guess another synonymous word you choose. Also agree with the comments below about closed and close. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Squiggle @ #20365: The weather presenter is Tomasz, not Thomas. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

MarkPos @ #20390: @knife Many thanks for your comments. I know it’s not a great puzzle! I just wanted to see if I could make a grid containing only numbers. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Ketz @ #20392: Good grid! (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Dood @ #13794: I got a point for guessing 'Ben Elton' as the group containing 'Turd on the Run' and got it correct (NO IDEA HOW!) (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

knife @ #20390: Hard indeed, but I'm afraid I didn't find it very interesting. The best grids are both. Here the possible links are so numerous that I was basically reduced to guessing (unsuccessfully!) (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

knife @ #20396: Simple and pleasant enough, but I also stumbled at the yam claiming to be a fruit (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

your mother @ #20367: Didnt get "hill" because too UK but it was a fun grid to do. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

your mother @ #20365: The synonyms category wasn't really synonyms. Too many mistakes in this one. (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

your mother @ #20372: "heads of state" marked as incorrect? it's weird that some have first name and some don't -- made it easier to spot some but also the UK themed stuff was too tough (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

your mother @ #20392: that was really fun (1 month, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #20372: Your explanation for the Green group was that they where all Chancellors of the Exchequer. It should read were, not where. I was disappointed to be marked incorrect for stating that the purple group were Prime Ministers. Likewise, when I guessed that the red group were foreign heads of state. That was marked incorrect and I should have said they are leaders of world countries. For heaven's sake. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Vix @ #7712: Could not get the German one! The rest were easy. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Vix @ #204: Good but not a challenge. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Vix @ #683: Good but dime and are far too similar to be in the same category, especially with quarter as a red herring. They’re all American coins. Should have used more coins from different countries. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Vix @ #566: Loved this. Got 3 rows before the time ran out but managed all the connections. Thank goodness there weren’t any red herrings (that I could see’. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

MK @ #20181: Clever theme but I'm not sure how I feel about combining two word answers with one word answers in the same category. @Quizzer, Tresemme is a shampoo brand. Oo la la. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Jingo @ #17789: Good Grid (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

brett orr @ #15524: not to my taste (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

J @ #20370: Good but wouldn't accept my answer of "UK countries regions capitals or seat of government". Seems like that was the more obvious answer than just simply british cities. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

grumpy @ #6833: Hidden relative seems acceptable to me. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

christobal @ #20326: Good grid. Got it right plus 3 of the groups! (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

christobal @ #20333: Well I enjoyed the grid, but I got marked wrong for saying Cleese, AND for saying Springsteen. And I was marked right for just saying aircraft (didn't mention Falklands). The answers need to be more carefully applied. Eg the only important bit about the John Cleese films answer is the word cleese. That should be by itself with a comma after it, as the only required word. But the grid was good! (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

JonBob @ #20360: Lovely. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

JonBob @ #20344: The Flora group is *really* hard. You need to know the specialized subject matter (which I do) but also recognize it when all four are presented as synonyms. Kudos to anyone who got it legitimately. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Whiskerton @ #20316: The brewing categories are so-so. Strictly speaking, unmalted barley will NOT produce beer...all grains must be malted. So "malt whiskey" is basically all whiskies. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Gaffer @ #20335: Traditional Cornish pasty NOT made with mince. Made with cubed chuck steak as per my Cornish grandmother!! You're thinking of Ginsters mass produced!! (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Ellie @ #20330: Far too 'difficult' for me! Puzzles aren't my thing - sorry! Although some instructions may have been helpful. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

GTC @ #20326: Really good idea for a grid. Top marks! (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

BinDipper @ #20315: Thanks for the grid TM. Enjoyed it with one criticism (hopefully constructive) - the vape group doesn't really work because you have one different from the rest. Generally, I don't think that's a done thing on these grids - certainly isn't on the TV version. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

jeannie @ #20313: Always disappointed with grids where the answer is too specific. I put Circle, and Bags, and both were rejected (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Christobal @ #16774: Good grid! (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Christobal @ #20313: Hmm, not keen on this one. In the Line one, "line" comes after Circle not before it. And you don't specify what the Skynet one is - I put computers but it was rejected. What is the "group" keyword? (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Ya Nan @ #13892: Pretty easy but I enjoyed it. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Christobal @ #1960: Very easy, although it didn't accept "street" as an answer. Use the shortest possible keywords as it says in the instructions. e.g. "comed," will allow "comedian" and "comedy". Nice to get one completely correct for a change! (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Woo @ #13527: Didnt allow PMs partners as an answer or peninsular (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Christobal @ #20300: Good grid. I worked a lot out by guesswork, and I still don't know what the small nuclear connection means, but I got the other three links. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Gog-ette @ #20288: Insignia should be accepted as the descriptor for the group it isn't in. Also a pitch doesn't have wings. Weak. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Gridlington @ #20288: OssieP9, a football pitch! 😄 Insignia is the overlap/red herring. It does mean badge, emblem, etc, but it's also a Vauxhall model. (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #20288: Gaffer...but none of badge, emblem, symbol or crest are Vauxhall cars...although Crest was only one letter away! (1 month, 3 weeks ago)

Larry. @ #20267: Well we didn't get it, but it was good. (1 month, 4 weeks ago)

Larry. @ #20274: Not bad. Ms Larry enjoyed it because it gave her a chance to do a Tina Turner impression. I thought of the Dutch gabber festival. We do not watch Game of Thrones. Perhaps include a character from The Good Wife instead. (1 month, 4 weeks ago)

Larry. @ #20275: Well I enjoyed this, although Ms Larry was somewhat perturbed by the 'over' category. As a 'cognitive linguist' the many meanings of over is something I think about every day. (1 month, 4 weeks ago)

Pipbit @ #17280: I think grids for kids is a great idea and people can ignore the easy levels if it's on the public platform. I do think a couple of overlaps would be good to get the kids (AND the adults) thinking a bit more. (2 months ago)

Pipbit @ #17281: If it's for kids then its OK but still needs a couple of overlaps (2 months ago)

Pipbit @ #17905: ditto about 'writing'. (2 months ago)

Pipbit @ #17922: Just too easy. If you didn't have the possibility of other seas there would be no overlaps. And definite one L in elated (2 months ago)

Pipbit @ #18103: Actually thought it was very clever! (2 months ago)

Pipbit @ #18423: Certainly no overlaps and too much description made it way too easy. e.g. 'Mount' Fuji, leave out the Mount. Don't bother to put 'Prize' and 'awards' and probably leave out the surnames of the Bond characters. Would just have made it a little bit more challenging. (2 months ago)

Pipbit @ #18479: Ditto about 'mount' and 'nut'. Quite enjoyable though. (2 months ago)

Pipbit @ #19094: Too wordy and not really applicable (2 months ago)

Neddy Seagoon @ #20162: Pinafore is more properly called HMS Pinafore and is technically an operetta and, if you're gonna be really picky, Oliver! has an exclamation mark.

Spengler @ #20159: tee hee (2 months, 1 week ago)

DeeDeeRex @ #20159: @Bob Thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure if you know how the puzzle submissions here work, but as the creator, I have to list as many synonyms that I can think of so that when quizzers submit their answers, they might be matched. In this case, each of the connected words was a synonym of 'to steal' in verb form, so I listed as many verb synonyms as possible. 'Theft' is a noun (although I did include 'thieve', as it's verb), and I'm sure if I were Victoria and you were able to explain your answer in person it would have made sense, but this is just a silly algorithm-based game online. I'll try to do better in the future. Best of luck. (2 months, 1 week ago)

Nice to see some gridders actually thinking about the different ways players will phrase their connection and not egotistically sticking to the connection they (the submitter) have in their head. (2 months, 1 week ago)

Gunner @ #20156: Rubbish wall. >Won't accept "E" as connection for the first one. Put some effort in specifying the connections other people will type in, you numbskull. > It's OctAgon, not "Octogon." Learn what you're talking about before you talk about it. Prick. (2 months, 1 week ago)

Harry @ #20112: boo-urns: All four are spelled "nic." I knew the actor spells his name Nic Cage (probably to reflect that his full first name is Nicolas, not Nicholas), but I was surprised to learn Merriam-Webster gives "nicknack" as a less common variant of "knickknack." (2 months, 1 week ago)

Harry @ #20091: Good groups. Although the Dustin group is indrect, it was perfectly fair. I solved it because not many things can follow Dustin and Culture. (2 months, 1 week ago)

Omegaman @ #19828: Didn't accept boot for the boots group! (2 months, 1 week ago)

Squiggle @ #20108: 'Street' should be correct. I put 'home' for the at/go/spouse/mail group and that was supposedly correct!! (2 months, 1 week ago)

Squiggle @ #20101: Nice one! (2 months, 1 week ago)

JJ @ #20102: Ex-cellent name there, boo-urns. (2 months, 1 week ago)

boo-urns @ #20112: Knick for Knack Nic for Otine Nick for Cage niche All different in spelling or sound... not a strong connection (2 months, 1 week ago)

boo-urns @ #20112: Nic He? The 5 letter word category is way too broad and weak. Many, many words are anagrams of something or other. (2 months, 1 week ago)

R.M.Healey @ #20084: Horrendous. Could make nothing of it. (2 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #20086: Bit easier than your normal ones. Clues too similar in some cases. (2 months, 1 week ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19313: I did better than I thought I would with this very difficult puzzle.I wasn't sure that Dirac had won the Nobel prize, but I knew that Curie and Bohr had, so it was simple after that. Same with the mathematicians. Hadn't a clue who Spearman and Bayes were and what connection they had with Miss Nightingale, so guessed Crimean War. Wrong! (2 months, 1 week ago)

Georgio @ #20057: Think breed of cat is spelt "sphynx". Sphinxes are half lion/half human (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Georgio @ #20058: Nice grid. But it should accept "ways of travel" for the 'road' group. (especially as I'm not sure feet are actually 'transport'.) (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

BIRDBRAIN @ #19977: Thumbs up (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #15122: There is no link between Malé and Mail. Neither spelt or sound the same. The Adams line impossible. Time for me to do one for you to try on Latin deponent verbs I think. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Question... @ #19673: I have noticed something odd here, how have some of the names changed to "SomeNumpty" and how have some of the recent grids created have been deleted (that includes this one that I've bookmarked). (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Gog-ette @ #19968: Utter rubbish. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Eddie @ #19955: Not very good grid (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Balex @ #8923: Epithet as well as nickname? (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Clue @ #2537: 14 is the answer to 3x+5 in the link, not 13. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

ANONYMOUS @ #19966: A problem Theresa May might be able to solve but I wouldn't bet on it. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Rustic @ #2833: Not to quibble with the eminent OcE, but Julius and Augustus were not so much added as used to rename the existing Quinctilis (5th month) and Sextilis (6th month) which proceeded from the first month, Martius, named for Mars. Following that line, 8 gives rise to October. Ergo, seems like a good set to me. I would have maybe replaced "Augustus" with "first emperor" as its a bit on the nose. Given your comment as a hint, it was quite an easy board from there. Otherwise it may have been more challenging. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Rustic @ #19966: I post under Citrus usually. This was not my handiwork. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19500: Technically speaking, Liberty is found in Wales but the stadium hosts English league matches. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

yve @ #19954: Sorry..I thought most people knew that Sean Lennon was born on his father's birthday.. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #2833: What ? Naming of the months of the year ? 8, Augustus, Mars, a Roman Dictator ? They were numbered 8-10 in Roman times and JULIUS was added in 44 BC and AUGUSTUS in 8 BC. MARTIUS was originally the first month named after Mars. How you are supposed to get those 4 in a line is beyond me. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

VJ @ #19964: Some of the connections were spurious or underdefined. Food is a little weak as a category. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

GARY @ #19964: VERY GOOD (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #2844: Too many spots and animals to be interesting. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #2845: Annoying grid with the same old rut of lines. Girls' names and months make it a lottery not a puzzle. Summer a girl's name ? (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #2846: Same old, same old. No linguistic merit. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #2848: Easy but hackneyed old sets. Fry a playwright ? (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19934: This is an obvious prank wall in which the real Aetees didn't do by looking at the below comment. Only a handful of people know this wall if they watched the show through every episode. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #19924: Excellent wall. Good variety of connections but with enough cause to think hard about it. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #19942: It's really poor when the setter cannot spell words and the person solving the puzzle is penalised. I typed centre and was marked incorrect because the setter had put 'center' (sic). (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #19950: Really obscure stuff. Have you been on holiday in the States? I've never even heard of those cartoons. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Sturm @ #19886: I am no red herring (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Gog-ette @ #96: Agree with Laura that using story as the definition when it's one of the words is a bit off. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Gog-ette @ #114: Loved this. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Aetees @ #19934: Is this what it feels like when people find out that strangers are impersonating them on twitter? Cause its a fairly strange name for someone to have picked by coincidence. In case it wasn't clear, whoever made this grid isn't he same person who did all the other grids under the name Aetees. The grid itself was fine though. Called for a little more specialised knowledge than I had. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Cryptician @ #19936: I can spell RECEPTACLE - honest!! (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Pip @ #19456: Sorry, we only shop at Waitrose (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

pb @ #19918: Idiot grid... the first letter is a word is pathetic, the flag clue is rubbish try pointless more your style (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19753: Your colours are wrongly spelt - the key word that is. I should have scored a point for that and so does others who've tried this. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19920: Agree with boo-urns, my thinking is that they begin with that letter. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19918: Yes the bad thing is that there are five states which began with the same letter. One of them have already been used up so it can't be a replacement for the duplicate Maryland though I may disagree with the Florida group as there are close contenders. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19928: Say one entry in that group so the others would know. I was let down in all of them. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

blorgons - eradicate @ #129: "Apples" didn't count for the types of apples row :\ (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19924: *Guernsey and London*. Also in your explanation the word singer is misspelt. Glad it accepts the British variant. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

gaffer @ #6964: good grid (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

UBone @ #19928: The groups aren't in the same order for everyone - which was group 4 for you? (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

gaffer @ #19924: thought moon was ok. didn't get it but par for the course!! (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #19753: Green, Red, Yellow, Purple - those four are COLOURS. How can I possibly be wrong with that answer? (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #19755: Were you testing the system? It took me 14 seconds. As long as that because I couldn't believe at first that it wasn't a joke. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

boo-urns @ #19925: How are Razzmatazz and Medallion colours? I could create a name for a colour... Also jewellery is not accepted. Only US spelling. I have no idea what "prompts in Writers Workshop" means. Not my favourite grid at all. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

UBone @ #19924: Moon category a bit iffy - usually it's either they all go before or after a given word, not either. Also Moonpig seems very obscure. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

boo-urns @ #19920: New York & Maryland's capitals do not end in A. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

boo-urns @ #19918: Two copies of Maryland = not fun (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

J @ #19906: Wouldn't allow 'female titles' Pineapple and sweetcorn aren't pizza toppings! (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Spengler @ #19925: loved the golfballs set and was very pleased to solve it... not the colours however, I'm a graphic designer by trade and a screenprinter for fun (been exhibited internationally) ...never heard of Razzmatazz nor Medallion (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19906: Never heard of a jalapeno before. And mushrooms are items (and a red herring for food). (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19907: Not cryptic at all from Cryptician there. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Spengler @ #291: Spengler agrees with Spangles (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

UBone @ #19906: Pineapple, sweetcorn etc could also be types of salsa. specifically pizza toppings is quite narrow (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Devils Advocaat @ #19906: Is Mushroom a character in Mario Kart? Are you thinking of Toad, who is 'mushroom-like'? (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

UBone @ #19903: Nice fake out with an afterlife/utopia category (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mike and Jen @ #19882: like everyone says, to many interchangeable (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mike and Jen @ #19906: (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jeannieirene @ #19906: Good overall quality. Needs more leeway on answer to sultana group. Didn't accept 'female aristocratic titles' which I thought fitted exactly! (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mike and Jen @ #19887: (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Spengler @ #6: very poor show (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Spengler @ #3: I got 10/10 after guessing the last set, but I wouldn't have managed that if I'd been competing in a timed quiz. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Spengler @ #19907: a pretty unfunny waste of the internet. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Spengler @ #6822: what D said, a tick is an arachnid and "pests" was refused as a correct answer. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mike and Jen @ #19877: (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mike and Jen @ #19894: OK grid but hard to get category names correct (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Nocky @ #19871: Poor grid, one of the links is already outdated and is not known by the vast majority. tedslacker, that is not you is it? I think not from the real comment. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Homer Seymour @ #19907: I object to my name being used in this atrocity. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

chicken lady @ #19814: WWW (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Spengler @ #19683: Yep - what everyone else said : fun grid, achievable (which is nice), but your next grids should have wider answer acceptions. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Aetees @ #19897: A pleasant simple grid (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Aetees @ #19893: Not my area of expertise so hard to say if that is impossible, hard or maybe very easy for the right sort of quizzer. Nice to see something a bit different though. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Aetees @ #19892: Decent but lacking in new ideas. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Lyndon @ #19903: Still non the wiser after seeing answers - you are supposed to set these for the average person - only you could solve this !!!!!! (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jonah @ #19808: Not clever, just irritating. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Matt King @ #19810: In what universe is coral blue or green? It's pink. Other than that, lovely puzzle. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #19803: Sargent is not the spelling of an army rank. I treated that as a red herring. Surely if you're going to put a grid together you would check the accuracy of your 16 items first? (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #19804: There was a repeat in the stupid Batman theme connection. I was marked wrong for international domains. I was marked wrong for putting elements. Both of these seemed very unfair. I clearly had it right. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

x @ #19884: Paul wasn't one of the12 disciples. Too much obscure knowledge. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #19810: So, tree doesn't count as a reason for that last group? Ridiculous. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Richard @ #19816: I was annoyed to get only 7 out of 10 because palindrome had been spelled incorrectly by the question setters. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

blorgons - eradicate @ #19884: I'm impressed with myself that I was onto the Mary Tyler Moore connection although I couldn't figure out what the fourth one was (Murray). I didn't manage to match anything, but I figured out 3 of the connections! Great wall, definitely difficult. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

cmus @ #19683: i think 'homophones' and 'tabloids' should be accepted for the relevant categories (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Gog-ette @ #19882: Mars and Neptune are also both Roman Gods and planets so not a unique solution. Poor effort. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Janos @ #2186: First one I got fully right ;) (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Janos @ #2331: Hardware wasn't accepted instead of computer - could be a nice move. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Fred @ #19755: Easiest grid ever. I like to finish off on a high! (10) (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Gog-ette @ #19897: Nice groupings but suspect this should be rated easy. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Squiggle @ #19897: Some tricky ones there, but a quality grid. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

larry stylinson @ #19852: unfair w/ answers like it had to be double acts not duos (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

A @ #19885: TimS, Berry & Green are Bond girl red herrings (Halle and Eva), not part of the Stones group (note the semicolon!). The sweet group is a list of genuine words or names that when you add a "y" on the end gives a list of sweet foods (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

gaffer @ #19887: Good. Straight forward groups no room for moaners (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Squiggle @ #19873: Challenging and a bit obscure, but good all the same. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Megashark10 @ #19890: Jp, I am the creator of this grid and apprichate your feedback. I dont know who this other guy is commenting, but please dont be offended and I hope you carry on playing. This comment exposes a flaw in this site where you can comment under any name, but I wish people wouldn't use it like this. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Megashark10 @ #19890: Fuck you JP. Ur a mummies boy. How bout that? Same to you Lebamski. Ur band from doing any of my future grids. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Cool Yeti @ #19887: Good (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Lebamski @ #19887: Easier if you know your films, but some nice variation in the clues. Thanks! (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Lebamski @ #19890: The Tom Cruise group lets this grid down: there is an inaccuracy (as noted by JP), plus it feels far too specific to be achievable as a connection. Otherwise some nice ideas. I look forward to seeing your future grids. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

gaffer @ #11: Nile and Danube interchangeable both blue and rivers (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

JP @ #19882: I like it, but too much cross over between gods and planets (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

JP @ #19887: Liked it (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

JP @ #19890: "Mummy's" is not a plural, should be "Mummies" Otherwise, good, and I loved the rugby group. I was misdirected towards American Football teams, I missed that Tigers are not one! (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

jefco @ #19867: Good grid. UBone you dont hang out in the right places. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

JD @ #19886: Very good grid. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Alarch J @ #19882: Yes Jupiter makes two links which successfully swaps with e.g. Mars so I make it at least two solutions. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

cazza @ #11327: mini map? west world? eh? (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

TimS @ #19882: to be honest I found it fairly easy. Got the Pluto group first. didn't take long to get the Mercury group. and the rest fell in to place. But a quality grid none the less. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

TimS @ #19885: Berry & Green I have an anthology of the Stones, Neither were members. The sweet group makes no sense except for Hone (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Sul @ #19850: Even though I got it, I dislike the "wordplay" group since it is not really a word play but a "types of" group with an odd one out. The odd one out requires the additional word that the others are types of to be added as a terminal string without space, unlike the others in its group. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

A @ #19852: Misspelt Mendelssohn Doesn't accept some valid phrasing of answers but that's unavoidable I suppose Good false category Not enough crossover otherwise, though (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

A @ #19848: Nice ideas for groups, but not enough crossover/red herrings (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

A @ #19864: Violates requirement of unique solution: could swap Volvo and Ikea (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

DH @ #19882: unsolvable without getting lucky (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

A @ #19882: Violates the rule that there be only one possible solution, making it unfairly difficult to get the "right" one (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

J @ #19882: Agree with Larry. Got the dogs and elements easily enough. Knew the rest were gods and planets but too many combinations to try. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Cynic @ #17521: Don't think Sherlock Holmes and Poirot should be allowed as not an actual group. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Giggsy @ #19877: bit easy (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Gunner @ #19868: @MK neither of those are correct guesses. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Larry. @ #19882: Well i got this but it's not really fair to have interchangeable answers like the gods and the planets. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

MK @ #19868: Not sure what's going on here. Correct guesses were marked wrong (used the wrong plural I guess) and incorrect were marked right (I said Shakespeare characters, and words that can be multiple parts of speech). (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19871: Out of all these pseudonyms, it is good that I have mine on there as a joke of a grid. From tedslacker's comment, seems like there may be two. From Iggy's comment, who I've also seen on the wall, I agree it does not have general connections. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Gunner @ #19852: Won't accept 'synonyms' as connection for first one. Sort your stool out. Stick to playing and not submitting you twing. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Phantom bunny @ #19875: Ford should be spelt fjord but otherwise its pretty good (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jim @ #7485: I was LITERALLY listening to THE MASTERPLAN (the SONG NOT EVEN THE ALBUM - ROFL!!!) when i solved the Oasis link. So that was a really wonderful start. The oxymorons - A*. As for the rest, oh dear. A real let down after such a strong opener. Must try harder. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

SomeNumpty @ #19775: boo-urns Not poor, I see this as links to given words. However not the best in the world. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

SomeNumpty @ #19773: Pedge Poor and four have the same sound endings and cakes are not all round in fairness. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

SomeNumpty @ #19721: One of the hardest grids I have ever faced. Especially the Lupus group where Nocky (me) won't have. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Gog-ette @ #19811: Really liked this. Good red herring. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #15212: Good grid, which I enjoyed. Nice to see common words of other languages appearing and NEIN as well. However MANGÉ is a past participle or part of the passé composé. Simple past or past historic, as we older linguists called it, would be (je) MANGEAI. Aß is the simple past in (written) German, technically the imperfect used to mean I was eating in spoken German. Keep them coming. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #15219: What word is "mee" ? I object to one and won being homophones. They're not in the Potteries. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #15241: Never eaten a pinball. You ever had Werthers Echte ? (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

A Liverpudlian @ #19789: … said the discriminatory, narrow-minded bigot. Take your lazy stereotyping and f**k off back to the 1980s. 'Scousers' isn't any city I know of. You know what you doing, so shame (of which you have none) on you. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Garu @ #18834: F.C. stands for Football Club. The vast majority of football clubs - especially in the UK - have those initials in their name.

Garu @ #19781: No, you’re thinking of Plep, the Belgian band who had a string of hits across the Benelux countries in the 1980s. This is someone else. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Garu @ #19759: A number sentence is an alternative way of saying an equation (heard it used in schools when I briefly worked there). Really like this, challenging but not unreasonable. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

Garu @ #19769: That’s a good one. There’s some specialist knowledge that I don’t have, but I would expect other people to do so, the subject matters are relatively broad, and there’s some good red herrings in there. I like it! (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

SomeNumpty @ #19547: The four things that are wrong with the grid which some people have noticed three between them:- 1) These are computer games (specifically card games) but spider can have more than one variant. 2) Octopi does not have tentacles, they are known as limbs which are mistaken for tentacles. 3) Scorpion is also a card game and Spider is an eight-legged animal so the wall has two possible solutions. 4) A spelling error makes this connection incomplete.

Oatcake Eater @ #16701: 8 first names in a grid of 16 is the most barren form of question in a linguistic/ general knowledge puzzle. I just switched off. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #16740: Very easy but swanling is just plain obscure. Cygnet is from the French "cygne"- swan and is the accepted word for a young swan. "-ling" is a Germanic form and should be the correct ending to match the German word "Schwan"- swan but it is so rare that I have never heard it. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #16751: Don't see enough of these kind of linguistic connections. Much better than members of bands and suburbs of Leeds. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Vilbia @ #10958: difficult (3 months, 1 week ago)

dasutein1 @ #19437: Well, more than half the quizzes on here are very heavy on UK specific knowledge. It's not like there isn't an internet where info can move freely across the seas ;). (3 months, 1 week ago)

Squiggle @ #19432: Easy apart from the Harry Potter line, which only works for people who are into those books/films. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Squiggle @ #19437: Mostly meaningless to people outside US! Only the tea line makes any sense. (3 months, 1 week ago)

d @ #18570: "Centre" is most certainly not a position on an American Football team. It's "Center" ;). And, "chocolate bars" are called "candy bars" in the US. (3 months, 1 week ago)

lindy @ #19412: Good grid although I scored badly with my answers. I didn't notice the girls names in the States, my bad. I also just put "actors" never having seen Gladiator ( Derek Jacobi is one of my favourite actors). The Normandy group was the first I solved . (3 months, 1 week ago)

Lebamski @ #19413: Enjoyable and challenging. Thanks! (3 months, 1 week ago)

TimS @ #19414: Found it easy, but excellent Grid Loved the legs, thought that V clever. and Pernickerty should know it's the SILVER shadow. and Kate Staples is more enjoyable to look at (3 months, 1 week ago)

TimS @ #19417: Likewise. Wasn't sure what to put for "Men of the cloth" Grid was relatively easy , but didn't matter. There were a couple of red herrings, and it was fun to do. (3 months, 1 week ago)

imme @ #19407: I liked zz etc. Inventive, playful and a cute way of hiding the answer in plain sight I though, unlike the trend of having group definitions right there in the grid, which I dislike intensely. (3 months, 1 week ago)

imme @ #19417: Ditto clergy. Birds, no. NFL teams, yes. Obscure / unnecessary secondary definitions are always irritating . An alright puzzle diminished by the link terms/definitions for me I'm afraid. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Rou @ #19421: Not too hard, I knew all the answers from the radio! (3 months, 1 week ago)

Verr @ #566: Nice!😁 (3 months, 1 week ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #16733: Pronouns pathetic. I, me, you, he, she, her, it, him, we, they , them are in thousands of words. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Verr @ #560: Poor. Obscurity for the sake of it does not a satisfying puzzle make. And as for folk and folks... (3 months, 1 week ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #16759: They are nouns so cannot mean to smell bad (adverb needed here). Malodor American spelling. Chris Pine is not famous. Pretty poor grid. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #16765: 3 nice linguistics lines but acronyms a disaaaster darling. SAG possible in capitals. Swot is either a spelling mistake or ridiculously hard. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Verr @ #556: Bravo, good puzzle, bit smug in the comments though. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Verr @ #555: Not my cup of tea at all (3 months, 1 week ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #16855: Possibly the worst grid I have ever seen. On a positive note there were no spelling mistakes in the inane categories. Did you also vote for Brexit ? (3 months, 1 week ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #16825: John Candy and John Legend are not famous in my obviously tiny world. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Oatcaker Eater @ #9678: Much better Pshwil. No Hong Kong ! Good grouping. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcaker Eater @ #9679: Too easy for medium even with the ridiculous Hong Kong link. Parse these latin verbs Pshwil : moriturus sit, monebam, tulisti, cacemur. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcaker Eater @ #9683: Area of Hong Kong ? Also Finthen is an area of Mainz in Germany. Nobody north of Oxford says won, two, three. Drivel. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

BinDipper @ #19407: Thanks for the grid Joe. Agree with others about the zz group - linked to the absence of capital letter to begin each clue? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

BinDipper @ #19412: Thanks Lincombe. Enjoyable grid - probably suffered though by not having 'Gold' on there somewhere too. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcaker Eater @ #9835: Worst sort of grid. Misspelling of Oscars, verbs and nouns in same category of quizzing, no crossovers, too easy. Sloppy diarrhoea. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcaker Eater @ #9836: Carafe with a "k" and Casper is the ghost. Caspar is the wise man. Pretty shoddy. Saved by the gravitas of Hamlet. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcaker Eater @ #9866: Great crossovers and varied grid but Father Christmas was a poor category. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcaker Eater @ #9886: Nice grid with sword crossover. I remember the Reliant Scimitar with fondness and can still just about play cricket , so good categories. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcaker Eater @ #9905: Pretty poor. Misspelling of scholar and Brussels cannot on its own mean sprouts. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

BinDipper @ #19409: Forgot to set the difficulty (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

cazza @ #12645: ….courts should have been accepted. and btw I think the whole of the UK has these courts, so the narrow English in the allegedly correct answer is inaccurate. Pratchett reference in the UK is obscure too. you would think he was one of the great classic writers the way references from his fantasy books keep coming up in the grids. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Tews @ #19400: Good (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

cazza @ #12647: not preceded but followed by (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

nerd @ #19400: Think you'll find several of those TV and camera manufacturers could belong in either group. However, one group is all Japanese companies and the other is Chinese or Korean, those are rather more obvious connections. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #16883: Very easy. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Hmmmm @ #19382: Too many obvious red herrings, tenuous links and then not enough options for the answers... So it's a frustrating grid (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Yorkshire Pudding @ #19407: Not difficult but fun nevertheless. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #19407: 10/10. Thanks. Not sure that the 'pu' group is allowed. Surely each box must contain a real word (or number). (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

David @ #168: Orangeman? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

knife @ #19386: Perhaps more accurate to say the countries still exist, they just have different names (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18933: Toronto - 4 consonants and 3 vowels is not part of the link. As what Clue said, that is a wrong entry which Quebec or any other equivalents match the other 3 entries. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19316: Celebrating International Women's Day... At least Iggy Azalea is there to match the commentor's first name. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Tbone @ #19297: It didn't accept mollusc either but uses the word in the description. Clearly a duff link. I think they've put 'molluscs' and 'currency' rather than 'mollusc' and 'currenc' which would incorporate both. Who really says marine invertebrates instead of molluscs? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Dave @ #19292: All correct answers - all given as wrong. Very, very poor. Should be taken down for editing. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19297: I'd typed in 'currencies' but says incorrect, I'd award myself a point for that. And another one are indeed marine invertebrates which should give you one point. So for me, instead of 6, I should get 10. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

JonBob @ #19267: The two wordplay lines are very hard, but clever. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

johnsmith @ #6303: should accept ships (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JJ @ #18941: Please explain the Sly-1, anyone? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

TimS @ #19027: No problems at all. I just put colours , didn't have to bother with Space. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #18359: Should be re-classed as easy. As for Aster I've never heard of a girl called that. Her and her brother Haemorrh I suppose. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #18400: Flute pan ? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Matty Mungbean @ #19226: fun didn't except Super heroes names (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

:( @ #19206: :( (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

anonymous123 @ #19140: nice challenge with lots of redherrings which made it more difficult (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Nb @ #19213: Maybe the forehead thing is age related. Was a very popular term back in my school days (80s). Junk is a pretty common American term. Maybe you don't watch enough trashy tv. Good grid. Pretty easy but nicely worked (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

anonymous123 @ #19166: falls should be accepted but otherwise great puzzle. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

black sheep @ #19221: very good - fooled me twice... (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

jpnance @ #19210: Very difficult. I feel like "movies" could be accepted on the third line but I get how you may want more specificity. I don't think I've ever heard of Brave. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

jpnance @ #19224: Very nice! I'm sure this plays tougher if you're not from the US like I am. I still had to take a bunch of guesses to get the manufacturers in order. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Me @ #423: I didn't say that (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #18689: Wouldn't accept South Pole instead of Antarctic (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #19226: Lovely. Thanks. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #19221: Very good, I didn't get many points, but looking at the answers, I really should have done. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JD @ #19217: More by luck than judgement, but some groups have multiple connections (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Larry. @ #19221: Good board. Great board. But mustard is already a condiment. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19218: That is definitely a fiendish wall. I had to find out who a few of the items were in order to believe that. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

RBR45 @ #19217: Got all the groups - missed one connection, my answer also fit the group. Good grid x (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

DuckChaos @ #19215: Good fun to solve, thanks. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19201: I had forgotten that Mr Hulk was a footballer and knew nothing of Leto and Wasp, so didn't solve the walls, but did well on the connections and got a score of 4. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19213: I didn't understand manhood for junk or large forehead for spam, so failed on the walls. The compiler must have a large number of slang terms at his disposal, but I don;'t, so I scored just 4 on the connections (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Alarch J @ #19218: I was thinking of the episode New Kids on the Blecch from season 12 Mister Tom which does not involve Milhouse. I'll be honest, I haven't heard of five of them either but they are there to fill the wall. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19191: Clueless on this one, but recognised the characters from Midsummer Night's Dream, so got just 1 point (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19214: (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19214: I found this very difficult and only managed to score 2 (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19209: I was confused by the wall, but got three of the connections. King Herod was a good red herring (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19178: This seemed reasonably easy until I got to the last four items. I couldn't see any connection and thus only got 8 (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19207: Horrendously difficult. Again, I hadn't heard of 5 of the items, but guessed at policemen when I recognised Mr Plod as a policeman. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

R.M.Healey @ #19218: Incredibly difficult for me, as I hadn't heard of 5 of the items. However, I guessed correctly about the cheats and so was awarded 1 point. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Dave @ #19221: Wow. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JonBob @ #19213: Don't understand the "large forehead" bit, but got it by elimination. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #19179: Ash! Culture! It burns! Fluked my way to 6 (tho would if pressed have guessed Verdi.) (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #19218: Nice ideas... I think I did pretty well to get 3/10 there. The stump one I'd ever heard of! More to the point, iirc Bart didn't cheat so much as fail to admit what happened to Millhouse. Or.am I thinking of the wrong episode? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Carrion @ #18526: Ponies (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

J @ #19209: Loved this grid! Difficult but not frustrating answers (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Kim @ #19210: I don't see how crow fits but enjoyed the rest (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Niggle @ #19163: I disagree actually (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

cazza @ #13306: I put astrophysicists - is that wrong? I think it is almost impossible to put the correct answer in this grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jo @ #19202: Nice! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

BV @ #19209: Ravenscourt Park group are all stations so that should be an accepted answer. Enjoyable grid. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

H @ #19163: There is nothing left to say on the matter (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jan @ #14194: I think you mean demonyms! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #19208: Hmmm difficult and a bit fiddly. 2/10 for me. Uk spelling of 'fe***' is 'foe***'. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PC @ #19162: Enjoyable Grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PL @ #19202: Enjoyable grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

bengal @ #19202: You may want to work on your accent buddy! good grid that made me laugh. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jeanjeannie @ #18338: Really enjoyed, although didn’t get all the connections. Tricky grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jeanjeannie @ #18304: Great grid! Very clever. I went for car not bike tho (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19207: Some of the best red-herrings ever since I knew what everything here is (except Judoon). (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

me @ #18814: Dancing should count for links for the 3rd line. Tap dancing, square dancing break dancing clog dancing. Not just dance. Otherwise really good. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PK @ #19201: two thumbs up! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

me @ #18423: Yeah that's pretty bad (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JP @ #19201: Very clever (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19198: Why Bother. Total waste (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19203: no comment (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

a @ #19203: HAHAHAHAHA Epic trolling. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Giggsy @ #19198: Twaddle. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

jpnance @ #19166: Would definitely like "falls" to be accepted by line 3. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

jpnance @ #19178: Kiwish has it almost right. "Wind" is supposed to be a homonym of "whined". Think "wind up a toy", not "the wind is blowing". (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

RBR45 @ #19191: challenging but doable (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Kiwish @ #19178: Try it in a New Zealand accent? Staid =stayed Mint= meant Wind = went Pride = pried Maybe? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

:/ @ #19198: prick (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Haiku Slam @ #19198: Boo-urns you are wrong This grid is straight up awesome Boo-urns you are wrong (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PERNICKERTY @ #19178: Which is the last line? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Props to you, Dave @ #19198: Hahahahahah!!! Yes! Best puzzgrid ever! Brilliant (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PW. @ #19174: Really difficult (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PW. @ #19178: Reservations about the last line (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PW. @ #19190: Really tricky! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PW. @ #19191: Good number of red herrings! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Paul Hafford @ #19182: I'm fucking Hazel so who's laughing now? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

boo-urns @ #19198: Junk, without being funny enough to make it worthwhile (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Harry @ #19198: Excellent grid. Took a bit of thought but I got 10/10 (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #19190: Good fun. Thanks. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #19186: I found the capitalization a distraction - maybe that was the idea. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JonBob @ #19186: The capitalization issues made this much easier than it was supposed to be. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #19158: Nice. (Tho you could have used penny and farthing... ) (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

gridder @ #48: too easy. took me 22 seconds (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Rug @ #19174: All the clues are fair, but two groups in particular are very difficult to get, especially within three minutes. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #19191: Pretty sure you can swap oberon and titania (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

StarAnise @ #17190: easy - but the words didn't match accepted answers. I called the 4 sided shapes group quadrilaterals and it told me I was incorrect, fabric was called incorrect and I spelled colours in UK English rather than US English and was told I was incorrect. Need more terms. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Aardvark @ #19184: Nice one. I could see there was some sort of Stoke connection and maybe Euro hosts but couldn't find the groups. All I could see were footballers and countries. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #19170: Rather nice. I'm guessing the Morton group took a bit of googling :-) (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #19164: Good one. St George's completely threw me, as intended :) (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Honest lee @ #19182: I was able to get all 4 groups out dry easily without knowing what 3 of them were. That's not how good grids should work (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Verr @ #365: Nice board, one might say "to cast a line" or " to cast with a rod", but cast a rod? Not so sure... (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Lal @ #357: Just hard enough to challenge but not too hard (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Aardvark @ #19163: I beg to differ (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Lal @ #4720: Good one (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #19183: * Caesar (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

anon @ #19153: excellent grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Momo @ #19183: Hehe ; ) watch it buster (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

TheOfficialMarkBarlow @ #19182: I agree @bigbarlow60 (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #19166: Yeah but all of those red herrings are contained in the same group, and the Rabbit Foot clue gives that group away, and as they are the only other lucky charms in the grid, we can eliminate all the crossovers straight away. This was how it played out for me anyway, im sure others had a similar experience. I enjoyed the grid however. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

bigbarlow60 @ #19182: shouldn't Jake be in internet dangers (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

shamima begum @ #19182: solid puzzgrid max can you have a word with big man theressa to let us back in (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Julie @ #19182: Bangin puzz grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Tbone @ #19178: The Mint category still confuses me after reading the answer. What is mint a homonym of? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

DuckChaos @ #19166: Timmon there were some cross overs. Seven is a film with Brad Pitt, horseshoe is a crab species and there's a Rainbow Falls. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Thomas from Cambridge @ #184: Nailed it! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Thomas from Cambridge @ #19166: Fucking aced it (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #16193: Save is a verb which doesn't fit the group. Crossovers good. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #16205: Spelling is obviously not a feature of the noble eight-fold path of Buddhism. Answer did not accept ROCK when it is the most obvious correct answer. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #16208: Clever grid. Single letters were refreshing. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #16216: Rowanda dodgy. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #16229: Should be in easy category. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

liz @ #6833: didnt accept relative (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #16251: Should be classed as easy. S No challenge and spelling mistake sloppy. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #16253: Nice grid. Good crossovers but achievable. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

liz @ #8355: (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

liz @ #10577: (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

liz @ #583: (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #18986: Good mix of lines. Should accept awards as answer. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

cb @ #19142: Sorry just doesn't cut it LauDave,,,;-) (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #19025: Arithmatic ? Call me orthographically anal-retentive but it's wrong. Otherwise ok. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

cb @ #19144: Complete brain fade on this one. Good grid. ;-( (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PERNICKERTY @ #19154: I seemed to lose my direction. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #19036: I agree totally with Omegaman. Snowflakes, if you don't like the truth, just melt. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

cb @ #19148: Eish.. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #19115: I put salutations for the titles - perhaps Mx is for a non gender specific person? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

cb @ #19154: Have to agree, beat me on the last two.. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #19140: Dumb is an adjective , the others are nouns and therefore synonyms for idiot . (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #19095: Very enjoyable - makes you think more than some others. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PERNICKERTY @ #19163: I agree with Jo (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Lal @ #14499: Good for an afternoon (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Beth @ #19170: Super hard, love the use of a red herring group (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

TimS @ #19171: For some reason I put add a letter and it didn't accept it. Apart from that excellent grid (thumbs up) (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

HD @ #19153: Good (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

H @ #19170: Totally stumped me. Nice grid. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jo @ #19148: An interesting grid. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jo @ #19153: Nice mixture. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jo @ #19155: Didn’t do very well, but I liked it! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jo @ #19158: An easy, pleasant grid. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake eater @ #18434: People who spend their time playing pac-man and watching Toy Story grow up to play Puzzgrid. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

jo @ #19163: (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19166: I agree with OSSIEP9 But I wish there were some red herrings / crossovers. Lack of, made it easier (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #19166: Could do with "Falls" being accepted but none the less an enjoyable grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JonBob @ #19162: Mixing the cryptic and standard clues is a bit weird, but I do suppose it worked. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Frankie @ #19147: This is a grid for nerds!! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

John @ #5005: good grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

John @ #15658: Missing vowels just seems a bit lazy (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #19159: Got bogged down in Sherlock Holmes as was concentrating on the first word of a title.......Methinks he done me up like a kipper there Watson! Good work NJC! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JP @ #19159: I struggled, it is a very good grid! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

T3Z @ #19155: did better at this one. 50 seconds to spare (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

T3Z @ #19142: Very tough wall. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

HH @ #19116: Quite easy but nice grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

COD @ #19155: Good grid. Went down a 'colours' route, and missed the obvious ones. Matty, a chain smoker will chain smoke. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Matty Mungbean @ #19155: Never heard of chain smoke, heard of chain smoker, but fun grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #19140: Found this very straightforward: The Deacon group is a bit of a old friend, and the elements that are elementsd are too obviously not anything else. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JP @ #19155: Good grid, enjoyed it (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

chris @ #19148: good level of difficulty (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JP @ #19154: Got some of the connections but the one with Star is too difficult (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #15852: some really clever misconnections, some words seem to fit into three categories. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #12138: Nice to have clearcut connections (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #19144: al...Take scope?? Nice grid....I am particular annoyed I didn't get the Get Here group, I've belted it out and joined in, in the car often enough (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Dave @ #19146: Tricky.... (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #19148: I had three of the groups but still couldn't solve it......Good work! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

martin @ #311: Company, division and unit are groups of soldiers, battery is kind of a gun emplacement, isn't it? so not quite the same thing (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

martin @ #294: This was much better than all words before or after. The clangers was magnificently obscure. I didn't know chicken and handbag, but dolly and lallies were enough for polari (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jimmy @ #19143: Score : 7/10 time remaining 0:57 (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Liz @ #10172: Northern powerhouse ? Eh ? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

al @ #19144: Good, hard one. I do think that the charities connection has another connection. All four clues are things you can take. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

DH @ #19142: I thought Trotsky was assassinated but after checking he could also be described as being executed. After his exile he was tried *in absentia* and sentenced to death. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Lal @ #18815: Terrific (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jime @ #919: Excellent grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jo @ #19132: A couple of rather obscure categories! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jo @ #19141: Enjoyable and not too hard. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jo @ #19142: Who are Bill and Ted?? I found this interesting, but there are too many ways to connect the French characters. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Me @ #19146: Good one (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #18966: Well crafted. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

COD @ #19146: Nice. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

ZX @ #19126: As enjoyable as usual (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jon @ #19138: Best so far for me, forgot Zoot, Honeydew a brilliant red herring. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

LauDave @ #19142: Note from the creator: Sorry. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #18763: Give more options for the connections (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #18979: good, but the connections should not be expected to be in capital letters, that is crazy, do not enter them as case sensitive. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #18978: Good call! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #18994: the connections make little sense even after they are explained. They feel a bit random. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JonBob @ #19138: Some fun connections! Putting Jack in that group is debatable though, I think. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Coochies @ #19111: Love the Coldplay reference (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Aetees @ #19138: I realised a moment after posting that Dr Honeydew is spelled incorrectly. It should be Bunsen. Shouldn't affect the grid though. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #19106: Becomes easier once the first connection is known (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #19133: fun to do (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19132: That appears to be a tough grid for a lot of people. Thanks for that. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #16950: good job, some connections out of left field. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19130: If you are a Whovian, which I'm not. this may make sense. Otherwise it makes no sense. Far to specialised (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #2526: could be more generous in recognizing connections, but good red herrings. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

VJ @ #7790: great fun and crystal clear once it dawns on you. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Julie @ #19115: I'd like to see the correct 'connections' (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Ian @ #19106: Good grid. 10/10 but I have to admit that I gave myself 4 minutes instead of 3. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Kevin J. Maroney @ #19112: I knew what 3 of the categories were but couldn't guess the names you were looking for on two of them ("Best Picture Winners" and "Film Production Jobs"), which is frustrating. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Artemis48 @ #19115: Hello, good easy grid but there's an error in the blue group - Mx not Mrs (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #18784: Might as well have "bee tolls" (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #18813: Good grid -medium spot on (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

QP @ #18950: Need to broaden the marking -The 'sword, way, band and side 'group are also all homophones. (Sawed, weigh, banned and sighed) Good grid. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Oatcake Eater @ #18973: 8 clues involving hot ridiculous (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

chris @ #19117: Fairly easy to get the groups. Could not get the link in the last martingale group (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19090: Yeah three of the four groups made sense, mind you the real names of two people have been put in for extra thinking. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19123: made no sense at all (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19103: Five of each item links here which one of them must belong in another category. Five stars. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Martin @ #283: This, like so many of the grids here, suffers in that all of the categories are of the same type, with an additional linking word. It would be nice if only one or two of the groups were of this type (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

QP @ #18966: Great grid. I solved it but it took me longer than 3 minutes too! (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19117: Got 4 groups fairly quickly Blue group fell in to place as had no idea what a martingale was. Learn something new every day. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19116: Fairly easy. but an enjoyable grid to solve (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Newbie @ #15907: Nice red herrings. Couldn’t get Boxing Day out of my head (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19120: Far too easy. And no red herrings. Red group. Not wrong to put Synonyms for beautiful. but putting Complimentary would of been better (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

DuckChaos @ #19106: Quality. Thank you. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

DH @ #19106: Great! (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Matt @ #18308: It was fun but I gotta agree that I use the USA tag to specifically not get cricket trivia. It is completely alien to the USA. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

MK @ #16944: I like the Spice Girls red herring, although I didn't see a fourth one, so it was a bit easy to guess it was a red herring. Throwing in "Gilligan's" made it way too easy to guess those characters. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

MK @ #17553: Good red herrings (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

MK @ #18061: Didn't accept movie genre (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

MK @ #18647: Ear hustle seems to just be a podcast? Not really a great clue if so. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

🦆 @ #18924: Beta test for user seemed a bit of a stretch? (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #19043: The princesses are also girl's names so that should be accepted too. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Jime @ #19096: Does it accept 'finch'? (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #19036: Solved it in 29 seconds but then got 2 incorrect - one because I spelt colours in UK English instead of US and the other because I was supposed to guess the herbs were the words from Scarborough Fair not just herbs. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Johnny @ #19113: The Porsche set could also just be 3-digit numbers staying with a 9. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19113: The UK head of state has no known number here and does not live at number 10. Apart from the odd mistake, the rest were generally well searched for. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19090: That was quite tricky here. When I hovered the explanation of the TV link, I only know of Noel Edmonds doing it. The Lee Ryan group is a bit bizarre though. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #19106: Very clever and do-able too. Thanks. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

You @ #10981: Great theme (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #19095: A masterpiece. You get one of my gold stars. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

JonBob @ #19105: Bill/Check and Accelerator/Gas are interchangeable here, so I don't think those quite work for that group. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #19105: a...You are looking at it back to front. I was not referring to cheques, I was referring to bills as in ,"can I have the bill please waiter" in the UK, and "can I have the check please waiter" in the US. The PaSch....fair comment I did rush it a bit as I was on a coffee break. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Y @ #4613: Good one (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

TG @ #19106: Very enjoyable (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

COD @ #19089: Nice. Plenty of red herrings! (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

a @ #19105: They're "cheques" in the UK, not "checks" (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

ThePaSch @ #19084: Really tough one. Enjoyed it! (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

a$$hole @ #19083: Alarch J you get a point for "pass" for the ass group because it has "ass" in it James P you just butthurt you couldn't get the groups (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

ThePaSch @ #19089: Enjoyed this one. Got the third group by process of elimination, but couldn't identify the Kite one. Good stuff. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

ThePaSch @ #19094: Extremely unsure what it wanted me to type in for the Audience group. Also feel a bit cheated by the fact that it didn't accept "roles" for the Hero group. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

ThePaSch @ #19105: A bit miffed that it didn't accept "british" for the Accelerator group, Otherwise a bit too easy for my taste, but good going. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Evelyn Wilson @ #19104: nice to see my hometown, Alloa and our neighbour Stirling get a mention👍 (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

JD @ #19084: Made it with 2 seconds to spare. Good grid. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

VJ @ #19099: the connections cannot work at all, if you have trees, but not with a capital letter, it is not accepted. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

chris @ #19099: same as other comments, gave the right answers but no points for connections (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Aetees @ #19077: It has been some years since I last saw the film but does Stitch fit into that category? I thought he was rather more exotic than that. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #19095: Good one.....not sure the grammar Police will be too pleased with 'Boat Trailer' but I am not going to make a fuss....I enjoyed that one! (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #19099: Ditto JPs comment........I think maybe the selection boxes were not completed by the compiler?? (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Aetees @ #19073: An excellent grid. The only thing I would say is that there isn't mush to be gained by revealing the crossovers in your answers, it takes away some of the fun in figuring them out. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19095: loved it. Big thumbs up (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

JP @ #19086: I agree with the above, three good groups and one that doesn't make any sense. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

cb @ #16985: 10/10 in 1:32,,rats! (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

cb @ #16950: The break is the amount a putt moves from right to left, or left to right, on a green. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

JP @ #19099: Nice gird, but having solved all the groups it didn't give me the points for knowing the connections (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

x @ #19067: Actually Warrington was in Lancashire when Chris Evans was born.Still too vague to be a good group - there are thousands of people with those names born in all kinds of places. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Ted @ #19095: Thoroughly enjoyable (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Cryptician @ #19095: Sneaky little apostrophe - my absolute bugbear! *hangs head in shame* (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19079: Yes I was thinking of Charlotte's Web since there's a pig on the cover. It should have been Wilbur though. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

cazza @ #13712: silly (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Squiggle @ #11502: Très bien! Je j'aime beaucoup. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

cb @ #1564: Nonsense (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #19000: I put dictionary publishers and that was not accepted but the fragrances had me beat. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #18996: Well thought out. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Squiggle @ #19045: No problem with two Bakers as both Tom and Colin have played Dr Who. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #18995: Don't think provisions fits with that group but put that they are all things you pay for. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #18987: Yes relatives should be accepted for family members. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #18986: Good! (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #18986: God grid thanks. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

RS @ #19045: Agree with other comments but very enjoyable grid. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19085: Three of the groups here were simple to spot, the fourth one made some sense in the way that the sequence of numbers match the ones on the calculators. The strong possibility is rediculous, I highly doubt it will happen. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19086: J - yes, the group with 'queen' is not as good as other links however the others are fine. I'd certainly say "let the challenge begin" was a good phrase to one of the entries on this wall. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Clue @ #19088: To be fair, I didn't know who Freestone was either. I also miss Orville, he was cute. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Jime @ #19085: The 'time' group let down an otherwise solvable quiz (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

CrAmy @ #19079: Can't find a Charlotte the pig - are you thinking of Charlotte's Web? Because the pig in that was called Wilbur. Charlotte was a spider. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

cazza @ #13751: battles not accepted - sigh (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

HO Wills @ #19088: Very good grid (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Only Me @ #19053: Yep. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Alarch J @ #19085: Err, the "strong possibility" - it will never happen. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Alarch J @ #19086: Queen - uncommon. That should be replaced with something else which fits into that category. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19081: No red herrings / crossovers (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Y @ #14986: Enjoyable (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Timmon @ #19086: I can see why Only Connect is in Blue group. but to be honest I agree with J. It is ludicrous. The other 3 groups are fine. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

J @ #19086: Thanks but the duos group is ridiculous (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

James P @ #19083: Childish. 1 star (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Alarch J @ #19084: Two points for the right names of the connections, I was thinking of what could go with Rialto but ran out of time. (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

Alarch J @ #19083: What makes the word 'pass' score you one point - I didn't know any connections so typed that in all of them. (4 months ago)

Alarch J @ #19082: Only one group I definitely knew, the rest others will know but not me. Cheers. (4 months ago)

Alarch J @ #19067: The answer to odere - I was thinking of Chris Evans the presenter from Lancashire however Warrington is in the wrong place. Iggy was right to point that out along with the latter Steel mentioned (Hollie). The Lancashire group is not 100% correct here, whoops. p.s. I would never have any Brexit connections on any of my walls though Corbyn I have heard of as one of the famous people with that name. (4 months ago)

Alarch J @ #19081: Agreed with all the connections here. (4 months ago)

Alarch J @ #19080: There is definitely a small error with one of the entries here. (4 months ago)

Alarch J @ #19079: That's one good grid there even though I did not know what Plopper is. (4 months ago)

a @ #19080: 11.12 is not a palindrome clever idea for a wall tho (4 months ago)

lindy @ #19073: pretty easy but I enjoyed it. (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #19067: What everyone else said about the birthplace group. Having Corbyn on the grid though, that was a master stroke. I spent half the time looking for 3 other nasty, Brexiting, anti-Semitic, hypocritical, useless, indolent twats who only got 2 grade Es at ‘A Level’, and yet think they have the intellectual ability to be Prime Minister. (4 months ago)

ted @ #19045: crispS?? (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #19071: Thanks for the grid Molsen. Not for the first time I died on the altar of American popular culture. (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #19073: Classic 5,5,5,5 grid. So 5* from me. Wouldn’t affect any answers given but strictly speaking, 19th Century isn’t correct. (4 months ago)

Wiz @ #18984: Google?it does exist. Good grid methinks. (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #19072: Thanks for the puzzle Rzeki. Enjoyable but not an OC wall really, so I only went for 3*; it’s more a test of a certain field of knowledge. It was a test to which my knowledge was not up. (4 months ago)

Owllover123 @ #19075: It not that hard if you know different sharks (4 months ago)

cazza @ #13806: proceeded is the wrong word. if you mean before it is preceded and if you mean after as you did here then just say followed by or suffixed. grids are satisfying if the accepted answers are well thought out, pertinent and checked for wrong spelling. (4 months ago)

Harry Speakup @ #19057: Festival should be an answer. (4 months ago)

Harry Speakup @ #19072: Impossible to solve through reason, logic or inference. You know them or you’re guessing. I enjoyed failing though! (4 months ago)

lindy @ #19053: 10/10 so clearly I liked it. : ) (4 months ago)

Omegaman @ #18984: The sick group are just synonyms of each other so synonyms should be accepted. Never heard Norn Iron as a term - think you made it up! (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19066: Usually I'm not a fan of the Queen of Spades in that card game but that along with the other entries in that group got me towards getting full score here. (4 months ago)

Omegaman @ #18980: I saw the almost animals but thought the answer couldn't be as crass as that and none of the titles are monarchs! (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19067: That Evans which the submitter I think was talking about was born in Cheshire but there is an obscure one which is not verified on Wikipedia so this may be dodgy. I also had to look up the Steel clue as well and found two - A.G. is before anyone's time and Hollie were both from the county. And then the Take Me Out presenter and the red-herring portrayer completes the group? The other groups you'd either know them or you don't (4 months ago)

giggsy @ #19067: Not great groups. Especially Evans. Very vague (4 months ago)

odere @ #19036: could anyone offering trolling and unhelpful comments please stop, and maybe leave the website instead. Good try with the grid - Scarborough Fair group could also just be herbs. (4 months ago)

odere @ #19067: Can you let me know more details about the lancashire group? (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #19054: Known what the links Candela and Otto are, the other two I had no idea. (4 months ago)

Ragman @ #19057: Technically, isn't the Thames at Oxford called the Isis? (4 months ago)

Mister Tom @ #19051: Don't normally like ones with too many obvious surnames but this was fun. ( But, no room for Jack Hobbs?) (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18974: Found the route to success here once the first group was found. Did not get maximum though. (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18940: I don't think it's that stupid or a (p)take. The F group does take me back now I've revisited this wall. (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18934: Two similar walls with different links. This one would be scoring more points for most people. (4 months ago)

Anne @ #583: I also said stereo so it didn’t give me the points (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18919: You'd need luck for this - I had 2 points. (4 months ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #19028: I didn't even get close to solving this one....although I suspected cars were in there somewhere..👍 (4 months ago)

edwardo @ #19011: "Hover" and "Star" could swap into the other's category easily, probably forming more common answers than they currently do. (4 months ago)

S.S. @ #18995: I think the "fare"etc group and "directors"etc group were rather loosely defined. (4 months ago)

Aetees @ #18995: While I liked the grid and like the theme you may want to expand the list of acceptable answers. (4 months ago)

Clue @ #18994: You'd either know them or you don't. Someone here should get Max Points. (4 months ago)

Clue @ #19003: Numbers which means anything until these ones which have definitions I'd never knew about. (4 months ago)

Timmon @ #18991: Only good if you're in the Prior Family. Pretty poor for everybody else. (4 months ago)

lindy @ #19000: Yep..I was marked incorrect for dictionary and for Prime Ministers. * sigh* (4 months ago)

VJ @ #6613: good connections, again hard to get them right, if you do not stumble on the exact formulation the setter has chosen (4 months ago)

VJ @ #6618: good connections, but impossible to get the points for them, unless you happened to use exactly the wording the categories were described as, this is highly unlikely (4 months ago)

Omegaman @ #18947: Lost me completely as I'm not into girl group surnames or losing talent show entrants but guessed Joe for the Joe group and got incorrect! So a zero score instead of 1. (4 months ago)

Giggsy @ #11102: The name Shen Yun means the beauty of divine jellylegs dancing, and that is what the audience experiences. Shen Yun now has six equally large jellylegs that tour the world simultaneously, bringing an all-new performance of dance, costumes, animated backdrops, singing, legs(jelly), and music to over 150 theaters every year. (4 months ago)

Giggsy @ #11097: For 5,000 years, divine jellylegs flourished in the land of China. Through breathtaking music and dance (and jellylegs!), Shen Yun is bringing back this glorious culture! (4 months ago)

Giggsy @ #11650: Listen, Jellylegs. I don't want to tell you twice, but it's KIWI. K? Chinese Kiwi. (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18980: Pope Alexander - there are eight of them but those are not their real names unlike Alexander Pope and the others in the category. (4 months ago)

skystorm @ #18979: thank you..I did just put oil and pie...but knowing me possibly put them in the wrong box...:(. Thanks for all of the encouraging comments from all of you. I will do another one later..especially for you BinDipper..:) (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18994: Some tricky connections here, especially the Max Power group. Had to search for a few (e.g. Radioactive Man) to see why. (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18972: Honduras definitely fits it's category of four. The birthplace of Victor Moses - I thought that is a capital city. (4 months ago)

boo-urns @ #18973: "Hot" incorrect for film category? And a seperate category for Hot non-movies? Feels sloppy. (4 months ago)

COD @ #18979: Good advice from BD, and a good grid too. (4 months ago)

Matty Mungbean @ #18992: Easy grid, but struggled with connections, didn't except Jeans, guessed Geordies, sorry Macams (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #18979: But take no notice of the habitual moaners and whingers. Just think of them as Brexiters doing what Brexiters do. :-D (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #18979: Another example - "They are all synonyms for fat". If you put 'syn', and 'mean', and 'same' in the keyword box, you probably don't need to write all the synonyms themselves down. The person answering should hit the answer just by saying 'They're synonyms' or 'They mean the same' or 'They're the same as...'. Hope that helps a bit. (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #18979: If you use a tense let's say the past-tense and the link is 'All the things are played' - if you just put 'played' in the little box, anyone writing 'playing' or 'plays' or even just 'play' will be marked wrong. Solution is to put the shortest version of a word, or even part of a word that they wouldn't write by accident. In this case, 'play' or even just 'pla' will do it. (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #18979: There are two bits - the bit that everyone sees, where you explain what the link is. As long as that makes sense the wording is irrelevant. It's in that other box (the small one) where it really matters. If you use the plural there you're likely to trip people up. So if you put 'oils' then people writing 'oil' will be marked as incorrect. More to follow... (4 months ago)

skystorm @ #18979: Bindipper..thanks..I am not sure how else to do the links there..they say keep it brief..any help would be welcome ..what would have been better to put ? (4 months ago)

a @ #18980: Did you mean Alexander Pope? Pope Alexander doesn't have a title in his name, he just has a title. (4 months ago)

a @ #18982: Too monolithic IMO... basically "sort the actors" (4 months ago)

Aetees @ #18987: A nice grid though you may want to look a bit more carefully at acceptable answers in future. Relatives should work in my opinion. Hardly the end of the world though. (4 months ago)

a @ #18987: No "relatives" for the family group or "storm" for the weather group? (4 months ago)

Petedub @ #18986: Nice wall, thankyou. Me and Wendy enjoyed playing it. (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #18979: The grid is fine Sky but your linking terms aren't. Both pie and oil were marked as incorrect. Are you pluralising in the keywords? :-) (4 months ago)

skystorm @ #18939: hi thanks for the feedback...I put National Anthem because of the Sex Pistols track God save the Queen...it's the first one I submitted so I hope to improve .... (4 months ago)

DSU1985 @ #2748: Enjoyed it. (4 months ago)

Vest Enpance @ #18942: Disagree about the Swindon group. It's one of those you either know or you don't, which come up quite frequently on the TV show. Some lines are meant to be obscure, that's the point. Knowledge based rather than 'generally guessable' (4 months ago)

Amos @ #18940: Is this a piss take? Stupid (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #18957: Thanks Ossie. I’m now trialing 4 rectangles (arranged so they are in each corner of a page). They each have double arrows pointing from them to each of the other three rectangles. The clues that can only fit in one link go inside the rectangle, the clues that form the crossovers go on the arrows. I’ll see if that works better. On the other subject, give praise to YouTube. The penguins and many other games can still be seen there. (4 months ago)

Baz @ #18950: Boo (4 months ago)

Homeo @ #18950: No, it is nothing like saying that. JP's point is 100% valid especially when you are purposefully using words like Jam as a misdirect. You can't then say 'it's not Jam on Bread - it's 'The' Jam, the band. But it's not The peanut butter' - can't have it both ways (4 months ago)

Mick @ #12814: Quickest wall I’ve ever done. Under 1 minute (4 months ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18957: I am still new to this but I am having most success when I try to do a list of 4 (at least) red herrings down the page and then work away from that. And for the record..I concur on Stuart Hall....memories of a very funny TV show, and of roaring with laughter watching it with my long departed Nan have been sadly sullied. (4 months ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18964: Very very good...I got the 'points' connection but confess I got bogged down in it being one group of ascending points...you done me up like a kipper!! (4 months ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18974: Cunning..very cunning..throw in an easy peasy group to lull us into a false sense of security then hit us with some toughies.....good work! (4 months ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18950: In.my defense JP..isn't that a bit like saying groups of surnames don't work without the forenames? (4 months ago)

Smacmahon @ #18960: Great grid! (4 months ago)

Giggsy @ #17386: Shoulda allowed "fire" in the redundant one, Jellylegs. (4 months ago)

4by4 @ #18957: Probably down to personal preference. I make 4 lists each with a title. If a word/element fits in more than one list I enter it in each applicable list. When each word/element has been selected for a specific list I put a tick next it. If that word/element occurs in another list I put a cross next to it. Repeat the process until each list has 4 ticks. Finally I check all selected words/elements in each list against all selected words/elements in the other lists (to determine if they are interchangeable) in an attempt to avoid a grid with more than one solution but I can still get caught out through my own ignorance - someone will usually spot it if you do not! (4 months ago)

Giggsy @ #18866: If I type in "lawyer," it should accept it. Please read the rules, jellylegs! (4 months ago)

Giggsy @ #18874: Dude, please use the non plural version in your keywords. Come on, Jellylegs. (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18971: The Devil group stumped me and got 7/10. Then of course it was a famous item. (4 months ago)

Vest Enpance @ #18941: Sly-1 is indeed brilliant. A real slow bullet that hit me as I was filling the kettle about an hour afterwards (4 months ago)

Vest Enpance @ #18939: A Glass of Champagne was a truly awful single by q truly awful kitsch 70s band called Sailor. Don't Google it, once seen it can't be unseen. Toe curlingly bad. (4 months ago)

Cryptician @ #18941: I'll start putting in more explanations in future. Fryer as in Frying Pan. Original clue should have been Fryer's Tool but I must have cut it short when typing. Apologies. The literal English translation Guillermo del Toro is William of the Bull. He directed Pan's Labyrinth. Learner drivers often stall the cars they drive (if manual of course). Poker slang for a King is Cowboy. Low Tiger Shot is a golf shot called a punch. Tiger is a clue to the golfer Tiger Woods. (4 months ago)

Angela @ #18939: The last group of sailors where does the glass of champagne fit !! (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #18957: In the absence of a forum, a question here: When you make grids do you use a diagram and mark on the red herrings somehow, or do you just do lists? I write 4 lists with the ones that will fit in more than one group in capital letters but it’s not very elegant. I want a better way to do it. (4 months ago)

Squiggle @ #18939: Some good bits, but wouldn't allow 'National Anthem', which is what 'God save the Queen' is, and don't get the sailor group at all! (4 months ago)

Squiggle @ #18897: Good but very easy! (4 months ago)

Clue @ #18822: Difficult numbered wall with half the points scored by me. One I see the connections described, I see how they are described. (4 months ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18914: Not watched Dr Who since I discovered girls (some 46 summers ago) so I was on a hiding to nothing...but another superbly researched grid!! (4 months ago)

Clue @ #18834: In that grid, I've seen five from the same country, five in the same direction of and five names with a common initial. I ran out of time to solve it due to the crossovers here. (4 months ago)

VJ @ #4772: loved the connections (4 months ago)

Clue @ #18889: The song "Drunk" is also from the same album as the A Team and both are in a method of "testing positive for...). I am wondering if there are two solutions here. (4 months ago)

Clue @ #18920: And I think that was amended correctly. (4 months ago)

Clue @ #18933: Must say I got confused to start off with. However, as I went on, I had some idea on what the connections were. Toronto however is a wrong entry as there are unequal properties compared to the other three. Quebec could have been a better alternative though. (4 months ago)

FizzyFi @ #12749: I’d have scored this higher - but Rachel in Friends is NOT spelt with an ‘a’ before the ‘e’. So having tried all combinations without Rachael I concluded this was a very clever grid indeed to have come up with questions that all the other ‘Friends’ names would fit. Very disappointing to find I was wrong - you just misspelt the name. Otherwise a good grid. (4 months ago)

RR @ #18772: Being picky- in the homophones group I don't think "err" is pronounced the same as "air". (4 months ago)

Jon @ #14944: Using Francs - an old currency - withe Euros - the current currency - seems slightly inconsistent. And the random addition of an extra word seems wrong unless you are hiding the word between the words. Otherwise the non-involved word is superfluous & their only purpose is to disguise them along other 2-3-4 words long clues. (4 months ago)

Jon @ #16315: The categories lack a consistency. The words from Harry Potter books should be "the last word" or the "first word after 'and the'." Likewise, "We Didn't Start the Fire" has a tong of words in that song; a loose collection of 4 of them isn't a strong group. And KTANE is so obscure; never heard of it until today. (4 months ago)

Jon @ #18055: Omlet wasn't taken for Omelettes. You really ought to cover all the different spellings. (4 months ago)

Gunner @ #18890: You and your ilk of substandard and shoddy grid makers need to be purged. The first group does not accept "7" - what? And the Ninja group wouldn't accept "warrior."

edwardo @ #18913: The "Cholera" group would make more sense in a sequences round but otherwise I liked the grid - hard to find the groups (except the "Cholera" one which was easy) but all totally sensible when you see them. You're one of my favourite setters on the site! (4 months ago)

edwardo @ #18917: I think the "Martin" and "Liverpool" groups are rather poor and unimaginative, the former particularly because usually the link needs to be tighter than that, i.e. they all contain something that's the same in meaning, like "hidden alcoholic drinks" as on a recent OC show. (4 months ago)

Paul @ #12418: Answered City came up wrong then gave correct answer as City (4 months ago)

Paul @ #16893: Good wall never heard of the places in Illinois (4 months ago)

Paul @ #18927: Good wall once I got my head around it. Disappointed didn’t get the movements link. Good work (4 months ago)

Paul @ #18839: Good wall. Some very obscure links and a few red herrings (4 months ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18923: Fair comment BinDipper........may be best for you to skip my latest one then!!..8-) (4 months ago)

Jon @ #1708: Saw this rated as hard but they were all fiendish to me (4 months ago)

Jon @ #11953: I put in "rhyming words" for the Crime group but it didn't allow it as a correct entry. (4 months ago)

Jon @ #14418: This was in the USA category and "colors" was not allowed to be correct. Not very good. Colours and Colors should be allowed. Also, "woodwinds" wasn't allowed for the instruments which seems weird. (4 months ago)

wev @ #17952: Top grid (4 months ago)

wev @ #17954: fun grid but we can't always guess precisely what wording is in your mind - the answer categories need to be a bit broader. (4 months ago)

Jon @ #45: Timbres group wouldn't accept "music terms" as a correct answer. (4 months ago)

Dan @ #1942: Far too easy but a lot of fun (4 months ago)

Chris @ #5444: Speling not grate. (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #18923: Enjoyable grid OS. If there’s any criticism it would just be that grids tend to be more fun when there’s variety in the way the links are made imo. Cheers. (4 months ago)

Chris @ #18888: Which Tarantino movie has the word killing in its title? (4 months ago)

wev @ #17967: Maybe include 'quartet' in the fours answer. (4 months ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18920: After someone pointed to me that there was an error, I have amended wall 18868 slightly. (4 months ago)

BinDipper @ #18915: Yep, thanks AK. I suspected there might be an issue. King is now Danielle Rowe, Alarch. She was King in 2012. There were only meant to be 7 with the same occupation. Martin and Evans sneaked up on me. (4 months ago)

Alarch, J @ #18917: I am happy that I've found this wall - it has Laity in it. That group was hard to spot the connection. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Alarch, J @ #18918: Fairly simple to spot, may be one example of a wall asked in the earlier rounds of the show (4 months, 1 week ago)

Alarch, J @ #18915: Nine entries with the same occupation though I could not find who King is in this category. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18873: A grid full of famous people from different areas of occupations. Joe Sugg, James Carter and Jim Morrisson I am not familiar with however. (4 months, 1 week ago)

baz @ #18897: good (4 months, 1 week ago)

baz @ #18897: good (4 months, 1 week ago)

baz @ #18900: too many first names (4 months, 1 week ago)

Tbone @ #18914: A couple of good red herrings. I feel like specific knowledge is required for two of these groups, and I'm not sure how much those fanbases cross over (4 months, 1 week ago)

Tbone @ #18913: The links all made sense, but I couldn't find the groups to begin with. (4 months, 1 week ago)

baz @ #18902: ok (4 months, 1 week ago)

Tbone @ #18902: What on Earth is the group with K and 2? I understand what the link means, but some form words, some form symbols. It makes very little sense and wouldn't easily be guessed. The rest of the grid was a walk in the park. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Tbone @ #18916: The main difficulty was spelling errors, then I struggled writing the links you were looking for. Didn't accept food or insects. Only noticed one red herring so very easy to group them. (4 months, 1 week ago)

baz @ #18902: why not pie? (4 months, 1 week ago)

baz @ #18915: good (4 months, 1 week ago)

BinDipper @ #18916: It will outscore my grids, and deservedly so. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #18916: Sorry. Not that good. Imo It's Crawl not crall. Butterfly is one word, likewise Backstroke. Sculling (as it should be spelt) is not a swimming stoke. And it's a Bee. (4 months, 1 week ago)

H @ #18916: Thanks, i learnt about the swimming stroke sculling. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Kat B @ #18916: Loved it. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Verr @ #311: I feel that the list of supposed terms for animal groups is not a good connection. It is not a real thing, they are not used (apart from a small number of real ones) those weird ones are just a trope propagated as a curiosity. (4 months, 1 week ago)

cazza @ #14369: got the connections very quickly but every single one of my answers was rejected even although I said the correct connection. very very and another very poor breadth of acceptable answers (4 months, 1 week ago)

cazza @ #14372: people of Britain rejected as the answer was british people - haha (4 months, 1 week ago)

PK @ #18849: enjoyed the confusion :) (4 months, 1 week ago)

PK @ #18840: keep them coming! (4 months, 1 week ago)

BinDipper @ #18868: I think that happens if you’ve included punctuation that the software doesn’t like, Mike. Or you have the settings on which grids to show wrong. You can adjust for difficulty and (alleged) quality. (4 months, 1 week ago)

BinDipper @ #18915: Bit worried that the solution here might not be unique without Ms Coren-Mitchell cracking the whip but fingers crossed it is. (4 months, 1 week ago)

PK @ #18821: another fun one :) (4 months, 1 week ago)

PK @ #18815: fun fun fun (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jeannie @ #18897: Enjoyed this, good crossovers! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jeannie @ #18902: No crossovers, and won't accept pie as answer. Should be in easy group, not medium (4 months, 1 week ago)

BinDipper @ #18902: Aye, a slip up on the pie front. My guess is the setter either put pies in the keyword section or just forgot completely. (4 months, 1 week ago)

lindy @ #18897: 10/10 so I enjoyed it. (4 months, 1 week ago)

lindy @ #18902: Why was "pie" not accepted? (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #17973: good but frustrating that "- castle" wasn't accepted while "castle -" was. (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #17986: Pretty easy, but surely "same letters" should be allowable in a category where all the words have the same letters. (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #17988: Excellent grid - just what the game should be about. (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18000: You need to add more synonyms to the blue line. A very basic one was not accepted, and I'm 'unhappy' about that. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Omegaman @ #18814: Good work. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Omegaman @ #18813: Great grid thanks. (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18033: Really enjoyed this one - got there with 2 seconds to spare. (4 months, 1 week ago)

RBR45 @ #18890: won't accept "warrior" or bands formed from breakup of band - otherwise would have got 10/10. (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18034: 'half Scottish bands' not accepted, which was disappointing (4 months, 1 week ago)

Me @ #18890: Rubbish (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18035: 'tube stations' not accepted - no other city in the world calls their underground the tube. (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18039: good stuff! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jime @ #10740: Very good quiz (4 months, 1 week ago)

Laura @ #18891: Love it. Nice hard grid. More please! (4 months, 1 week ago)

BigG @ #18902: One of my faves (4 months, 1 week ago)

Pizzler @ #18871: His first several albums were released under just “Eno”, and many have credited his production as such. Since publishing this puzzle my mind has been looking for perhaps better mononymic artists - Madonna, Morrissey etc (4 months, 1 week ago)

MikeD @ #18868: Sorry to hijack your puzzle, but does anyone know what happens when you submit a puzzle but doesn't show up on the list of puzzles? (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #18849: nice one - but ultimately not too tricky once you sussed the misdirects at play (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18063: "sea" not accepted - that's a bit narrow! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #18888: Suede group is vague for my money (4 months, 1 week ago)

MikeD @ #18894: Whoops. I thought you were commenting on mine lol. #18896 (4 months, 1 week ago)

Golfer444 @ #18890: So you're telling me the green group isn't connected by the number seven? nor the purple group by the word warrior? Ok then..... (4 months, 1 week ago)

horse @ #14868: You cant have "blind mice" if blind is the connection. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Verr @ #298: I don't get what two opposed meanings there are for 'bolt'. This is driving me crazy! 😵 Threaded bar? Fasten? Run away? Roll of cloth? Pass through a sieve? (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #18888: Superb. Got the drinks, then spent ages looking for a fourth Britpop band. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18883: Preceded is wrong with what "a" commented on. The submitter knows the error here. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18889: All good, except I didn't see the connection on what Basel is to do. That person is my dad's favourite player. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jeanjeannie @ #18061: Nice grid, thanks (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18883: Whoops!! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Alarch, J @ #18867: Some good red-herrings thrown in here and I agree with all the answers given here though I didn't know who a few of them were. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Alarch, J @ #18868: Iggy, this wall has two solutions. Terry and O'Shea both have two things in common which fits into the wall. Otherwise good but may not be of a general audience. (4 months, 1 week ago)

cazza @ #14435: agree with omegaman (4 months, 1 week ago)

Shaft @ #18868: nonsense (4 months, 1 week ago)

lindy @ #18821: Another of your fun grids. (4 months, 1 week ago)

lindy @ #18840: Fun grid. I am another who really enjoys this type. Well done. (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18091: Surprised 'lessen' wasn't one of the synonyms. Fun grid. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #18815: You sound fun! A/S/L??? 18/jellyleg/hollyweird (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #18877: Good job, ya Canuck! Go fork yourself, you bench! xoxoxo (only jellylegs will get this) (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #18872: I don't like desserts, but this was the best puzzgrid on this website. Good work jelly legs! (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18108: Excellent grid (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18125: quality grid. I didn't get the celeb row but I really should have - I've certainly heard of all of them. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #1428: Give yourselves one point for typing the connections right, I don't see how this is identified as wrong. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18467: Better than the similar grid when two entries did not meet the criteria of the 2017 link. Nicely amended. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Morgan444 @ #10711: Love the theme (4 months, 1 week ago)

CB @ #3876: Glad I 'came to play' Andypandy... (4 months, 1 week ago)

CB @ #3916: Very good, thx. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Only Me @ #18849: Enjoyed that. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Only Me @ #18869: Very good - with a bit of sauciness thrown in. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Gee @ #6833: We put 'relatives' for the 'family' one and got marked incorrect, this should updated. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Els @ #18821: loved it (4 months, 1 week ago)

Penny Lane @ #18863: Incorrectly rated as hard. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18855: Sorry, 189 is a weak link here. America - Thanksgiving maybe... (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18863: Stumped on this one. Thought that four of the 16 clues would get me to a link but it didn't so this grid is good. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Ian @ #18863: Enjoyable grid! (4 months, 1 week ago)

zoya @ #18733: Great, challenging quiz. I didn't think of radian as a unit of measure but more as a constant. 1 rad = 360o / (2 π) = ~ 57.29578 degrees (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jo @ #18849: Good one! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Me @ #18854: OK if you watch telly all day. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Golfer444 @ #18863: This was good. Got 7/10 as I didn't get the last connection right. I was close though (4 months, 1 week ago)

drunkentypist @ #18852: excellent (4 months, 1 week ago)

drunkentypist @ #18851: solved easily with nice categories; however I feel that f1 racing champions should jolly well get a point. the other answers are the same... (4 months, 1 week ago)

Grotter @ #18855: How are 189 and America facts about turkey? Not particularly strong connections (4 months, 1 week ago)

hmm @ #18854: Harry Potter category very tenuous, others too esoteric. Needs work. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jeanjeannie @ #18052: Great. Really enjoyed it thanks (4 months, 1 week ago)

Lebamski @ #18831: Some nice ideas, I particularly liked the "-crats" group (never heard of at least one of them!) One thing: it would be nice to have the full names listed for the "Bruno" group - I know some of them but not others. Thanks! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Lebamski @ #18854: Some very esoteric knowledge needed for some of these connections. Also, a few of the clues feel a bit too vague and general (e.g. "School" for Harry Potter, "Queen" for Reign). This needed to be refined further to work as a grid, but didn't work for me as it stands. Sorry! (4 months, 1 week ago)

hmm @ #18841: Oscar Wilde, American? (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18810: The 17 group I've typed in the answer and says 'incorrect', hovered above it and that's the same. Something must have gone wrong when submitting. Otherwise another good grid but not impossible. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #18851: Have to criticise. but believe I'm also guilty on my own grids. Would not accept F1, Race Courses or Tartan. And the t'other group the word is Constituencies, not constituents. didn't like PM either. Apart from that the groups are excellent. (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18407: PMs didn't really work, otherwise it should have been Major John. Couple of other spurious connections. (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18411: Very poor, due to i's looking like l's in the grid. Also, the 'Adam' connection was very dodgy. (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18773: Good grid. (4 months, 1 week ago)

A.K. @ #18840: Ditto DuckChaos (4 months, 1 week ago)

edwardo @ #18841: “If you’re going to quote from the Book of Revelation, don’t keep calling it the Book of Revelations; there’s no “s”, it’s the Book of Revelation, as revealed to St John the Divine” - Half Man Half Biscuit, "Shit Arm, Bad Tattoo" The explanations are a bit off, but otherwise the actual links and such are very good.

Jime @ #18841: *Revelation (4 months, 1 week ago)

MickL @ #18832: Good wall made me think a bit (4 months, 1 week ago)

Omegaman @ #18789: Didn't accept relatives for the family links and as for a set of one or two words from a series of book titles - very obscure! (4 months, 1 week ago)

HOWills @ #18823: Fantastic!!! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #16564: This wall makes me wanting to eat some of the entries. Very tasty wall and I do consider one of the groups to be known as more than one type. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #16315: Lyrics? Too hard, jelly legs! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #16564: Ehhh.... it was ok, jelly legs. :) (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18822: That was a real challenge of a wall. I've lost one point for spelling part of one link incorrectly even though I know the connection. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #16893: Not bad, jelly legs. :) (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #16874: Good job jelly legs. ;) (4 months, 1 week ago)

chrisb @ #18793: Pushed the boat out a bit far with 'shaved'. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jo @ #18826: I think the answers need to be broadened - particularly to include synonyms. Quite enjoyable otherwise. (4 months, 1 week ago)

chrisb @ #18810: Only managed to identify 3 of the themes, no complete sets. Rats.. (4 months, 1 week ago)

bristolstoo @ #12: yes john Crowley, green day is 2 words. also why not replace metallica and coldplay with the hives and sum 41? then the bands would have something in common (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18664: Very good grid (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18669: Decent grid, though valid points already made by others. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jon @ #18817: Bit too hard for the time allotted. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jon @ #18820: Awesome (4 months, 1 week ago)

COD @ #18821: That was fun. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Oma @ #7062: (4 months, 1 week ago)

Not-So-Thin Lizzy @ #18823: Ooh I like the Valentine's theme ;) (4 months, 1 week ago)

Vest Enpance @ #18814: Nice grid and 'Up' also works for the Clog group. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Oma @ #10577: (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18789: Should accept vessels as an answer in the boat row. Otherwise straightforward but enjoyable. (4 months, 1 week ago)

JPF @ #18820: I've had a good amount of time to answer this but I didn't know the 12:01 connection. An enjoyable timed grid. (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18821: Good grid, but simple once concept understood. (4 months, 1 week ago)

COD @ #10923: Enjoyed that. (4 months, 1 week ago)

COD @ #18814: Nice. (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18808: Lack of red herrings made it relatively straightforward, even with the vagueness of the 'mate' group. (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18782: Nice, simple but enjoyable. (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18814: Nice to have one that doesn't need too much thinking. (4 months, 1 week ago)

JD @ #18815: Very enjoyable with the cryptic element. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #18817: A part from the saint days was total foxed by this one. Then I saw the answers. Very clever. (4 months, 1 week ago)

BaconLard @ #18815: Thumbs up! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Chris @ #18795: (4 months, 1 week ago)

Chris @ #18795: Really sneaky. Great! (4 months, 1 week ago)

VJ @ #13038: nice to get it, to get it nice (4 months, 1 week ago)

Dave @ #18797: Didn't accept correct answers. Fourth group was not a group. Very poor. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Aetees @ #18787: A fun grid. Well done. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Lebamski @ #18784: Simple but enjoyable. "McCartney" is a bit cheeky, but not to the point of spoiling the grid. Thanks! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Lebamski @ #18797: As already mentioned by several commenters, having a group whose connection is 'Red herrings for the other groups' makes this almost impossible to solve. The presidents group also feels far too specific to make it achievable. Some nice ideas, but not executed well enough to make this enjoyable. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Lebamski @ #18805: Some nice variety in the connections. Simple but fun. Thanks! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Lebamski @ #18813: A straightforward grid with a few nice crossovers to add some extra challenge. I liked the CaCO3 group in particular. Thanks! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #18808: Really good me old China. might not of been any crossovers but the cryptic nature of the clues, made it. (4 months, 1 week ago)

FizzyFi @ #10608: Dangermouse - surely interchangeable answers are half the point of a good grid. Solved this fairly easily - but good crossovers (interchangeable answers) and I could have taken longer if I hadn’t been lucky with my first attempts. Thanks RegularTony (4 months, 1 week ago)

Matthew @ #18809: Coolio (4 months, 1 week ago)

Matthew @ #18809: Great, really challlenging (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #8355: The Green group was fairly easy. Could see one group was Yes, but took a while to get it. Loved the purple group. Good grid. (4 months, 1 week ago)

FizzyFi @ #236: Good easy grid perfect for a quick coffee break. Eon isn’t an online e-commerce company, it’s a power supplier. But I’ll give you that one. Fun nonetheless. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Peekay @ #18797: All kinds of wrong (4 months, 1 week ago)

Peekay @ #18808: Generally love this type of grid, but some very spurious connections in this one (4 months, 1 week ago)

Dobby @ #18797: No, no, no, no,no! That just makes it impossible to solve the grid! Give yourself a slap on the wrist and vow to do better next time! (4 months, 1 week ago)

JPF @ #18800: That certainly challenged me, this is certainly a very good wall to do. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Clue @ #18796: 1. Synonyms are one word, not two. 2. I think I can spot the singers - one song three of them sung would be 'We Can't Talk Anymore', '212' (song) and 'Roar'. The other one could be a band which consists of the members with the surname. 3. The other two categories spot on (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #18772: You've probably sussed it The missing S in the purple group. Think it would of been better if red group had some crossover red herrings. Otherwise fine. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Sabrina @ #18806: This was a really good grid, I’d definitely recommend it! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Clue @ #18797: A category which has it's entries fit into the others is known as a r**-h**r**g. Would this be a good idea for an advanced wall on Only Connect or not... (4 months, 1 week ago)

x @ #18797: Any of the herring group could be swapped, making it impossible to get the answer without a lucky guess. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Mr D @ #18799: Just did this grid with one of my classes where I teach. We really enjoyed it - thanks! (4 months, 1 week ago)

COD @ #18783: Good grid - distracted by all the 90s bands! (4 months, 1 week ago)

COD @ #18797: Agree - a red herring category is weird. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Wiz @ #18795: No.that one escaped the mind of Wiz! Good grid! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Newbie @ #17728: Satisfying. Thanks (4 months, 1 week ago)

BwB @ #2855: Put mask as answer but told it’s incorrect ☹️ (4 months, 1 week ago)

Squiggle @ #16035: I'm not from London but still enjoyed this. Good red herrings. Well done. (4 months, 1 week ago)

D @ #18768: Very nice. Good fun. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Iggy Swan @ #18800: I have never seen a grid which contains entirely of numbers before. This is a good grid to challenge everyone. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Max @ #18768: I have just checked up on 'tridge' and it seems to mean a Y bridge or three way platform or something. It is not commonly used though. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Max @ #18768: Sorry, but that wasn't me that commented, it was someone else in our house who played it and forgot to sign out. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #18796: No they are not synonyms - not sure what they are. Be helpful if you told us who these singers were. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Me @ #15546: Good but extremely difficult for (4 months, 1 week ago)

Omegaman @ #18782: A great grid. Thanks. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Omegaman @ #18775: Put things you put in your mouth as it could be a fruit chew (4 months, 1 week ago)

Omegaman @ #18772: Got it despite the missing s but put " make new words when reversed " which wasn't accepted for the backwards group. :-( (4 months, 1 week ago)

peen @ #12539: we tried mushroom and didn't get it :( (4 months, 1 week ago)

peen @ #18796: those aren't synonyms and the american singers one was nuts (4 months, 1 week ago)

lets get quizzical @ #18797: absolutely outrageous to have one of the categories as red herrings... this is poor show and victoria coren-mitchell would be saddened tbh (4 months, 1 week ago)

Pip @ #18279: Is that you Colin? (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jose1978 @ #18798: Loved it! Never new Hillary was a scorpio haha :D (4 months, 1 week ago)

Andrew @ #17487: Liked the Christmas themed grid. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Andrew @ #5983: Some good red herrings but it said incorrect when I said London rail stations which is also a valid answer. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Andrew @ #15871: Good grid with some tricky connections if not known about. I only got the squares as local to Manchester and know of St Peter's Square. And the Ton group almost evaded mee (4 months, 1 week ago)

Only Me @ #18795: Yep, very good. Anyone get all the group involving dor? (4 months, 1 week ago)

Andrew @ #184: Grid should have one unique solution. Hat & Dog could be swapped in their categories. (4 months, 1 week ago)

cazza @ #14589: good (4 months, 1 week ago)

CF @ #18705: love this! great fun (4 months, 1 week ago)

cazza @ #14630: witty! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #18431: Giggsy is wrong. (4 months, 1 week ago)

BinDipper @ #18754: No worries OSSie. A guy on here with whom I exchanged a few messages talked about having a 5,5,5,5 set up or 6,5,5,4 as a guide. So each group has one red herring OR one group has two herrings and one, usually a word type link, manages without any. I think that's a sound starting point. If you have lots of squares that fit the same link, it's hard to avoid having two solutions. Good luck! (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18474: Well...soul tie is a new one on this soul boy, and I never knew a female cat is called a Queen so I was on a hiding to nothing with that one!! (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18475: Had me totally stumped....I never even got three to link let alone four. Well played (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18486: Fubar...not sure you could "stretch" a puck!! (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18487: I knew I was going to groan the groan of "of course" when I saw the solutions...and I did....cracking grid mate! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Mister Tom @ #18784: I mean, I got it... but that doesn't mean I approve (4 months, 1 week ago)

Ian @ #18783: Good grid. Thank you! (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18785: Well that stumped me. I had a feeling one group was the American spelling but I still couldn't spot it...as for the rest I never got close. Well played. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Andrew @ #48: I found that one difficult. but fun. There's an also an alternative answer for Row 4 Time. You have reaction time, family time, wartime and waste time (4 months, 1 week ago)

wev @ #18212: Good grid but answer range to pinch and scratch too limited. (4 months, 1 week ago)

FirstGofer @ #18784: Beatles/Beetles (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jon @ #18773: Just made it 6 secs. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jon @ #18779: Brilliant. Love it (4 months, 1 week ago)

falcon @ #18781: very good (4 months, 1 week ago)

knife @ #18775: Not bad but agree with Dobby; masticate is not synonymous with the other three (4 months, 1 week ago)

Dobby @ #18775: Chew doesn't fit in the group for the same reason Jime has mentioned. Also Masticate doesn't really fit into the group as it doesn't fit with the answer - you can masticate without swallowing (gum for example). (4 months, 1 week ago)

FirstGofer @ #18777: Nicely constructed, but not sure about Unarmed Suspect, or Dollar Bill for that matter. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Dobby @ #18772: Nice concept but a far too easy as it's nearly impossible to fit in any crossovers with these groups. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Dobby @ #18768: Tridge?? Tut tut. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Andy P @ #18772: Unorthodox grid. Easy enough due to only having one overlap across the entire grid, but not very enjoyable to be honest. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #10473: The Green group was good. It sorta went down hill from there. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Andy P @ #18775: Yeah decent enough grid - one quibble - perhaps more of a request - please don't do a synonyms link without using 'synonym' as an answer criterion. Otherwise thanks! (4 months, 1 week ago)

cazza @ #14652: I think some of this was really obscure - the puzzler has to have the answers somewhere in the brain (ie early 1900's rugby captains - eh??) while the setter looks them up on the internet. askew? (4 months, 1 week ago)

Tcv @ #18763: I've never heard of Lily Savage. Lily Allen I know. I humbly seek your forgiveness, O Saint Simon Peter, for I am but a lowly foreigner, ignorant of the ways of all the words of your people. (4 months, 1 week ago)

H @ #18773: tell tale tit made me smile. Haven't heard that since i was 7. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Giggsy @ #18768: The idea is not to praise or score your own grids. This is not great imho. 'Tridge' is not a word in its own right. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jime @ #18775: Good grid. It's known as 'chewing' tobacco though isn't it (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18694: Very good...apart from Rob Brydon (and therefore the group) I was totally stumped....considering where we are it is a bit embarrassing not getting the lovely Victoria though (4 months, 1 week ago)

Rustic @ #18745: A clever idea, though maybe could have been presented/executed better. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Rustic @ #18728: TL;DR - way too much possible crossing between categories. A few points of criticism: 1. The loon is certainly not a songbird. Not by taxonomy, and not by vocalization. They call rather distinctly, but I don't think you'd deem it a song. 2. If taxonomy, then, is not the criteria for the songbirds list, then easily the p(ewe)e could swap with the ta(nag)er within the animal name category. 3. King(fish)er feels like a cheap answer within the animal name category, as it is by that very animal the bird was named. It's not as though the word is "hidden" in there. 4. A simple search of IMDb will yield film titles with many these birds (Loon, Pigeon, Cardinal) so the Oscar nomination is probably an important distinction to make the category solid - as (kit)e is another animal name, and the cuckoo, while not scientifically a songbird, also has a distinct call like the loon. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Omegaman @ #18762: Disciples / Apostles aren't these synonymous? (4 months, 1 week ago)

Dottie @ #18772: Needs an s on the end of pet. (4 months, 1 week ago)

a @ #18745: Very clever idea. Not sure why one group wouldn't let me have "wall". (4 months, 1 week ago)

CB @ #5503: Ridiculous. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Omegaman @ #18702: Think it's hard not to accept animals for that group. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Dave P @ #18772: GG! Tricky links, but interesting. Keep it up! (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18768: Brilliant grid......For the first time ever I couldn't even work out any of the links let alone sort them out!! (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18754: Ah...thanks for the clarification Bindipper......blimey that makes it a lot harder but I'll persevere! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Greg @ #18767: (4 months, 1 week ago)

Dobby @ #18762: Unfortunately this grid doesn't work as there is more than one solution. You can swap Thomas and Black for Potter and it still works. Could also even swap James for Thomas and then Potter for James and have a working solution. 1 star I'm afraid. (4 months, 1 week ago)

XN @ #18745: I liked it and solved quite a lot of it (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #10033: Chris. Just because they are not brewed like they are in the UK. They are still Beers. Thought it was a really good grid, and have scored it highly. (4 months, 1 week ago)

CB @ #18749: Got to agree with Giggsy, 'Strictly' unnecessary. (4 months, 1 week ago)

BinDipper @ #18754: Puzzle #18023 is one of mine where I made that mistake OSSIE - so you can what I mean. There's a fish fork as well as a fish knife. Therefore two solutions. The grid is bollocksed. (4 months, 1 week ago)

BinDipper @ #18754: In case Gofer misses your question OSSIE - yes you're right. Answers should fit in more than one group, BUT the whole grid has to have a UNIQUE solution. If you can swap, say, 2 items, one in group A and one in Group B but still have a perfectly sensible grid then the grid is flawed. It has 2 solutions. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Only Me @ #18768: Nice one. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jac @ #13022: okay - better than a lot of grids but always difficult to guess the word used to describe the synonyms when several would fit (4 months, 1 week ago)

Max @ #18768: I made this grid and I think it works well! Hope you enjoy. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Simon Peter @ #18754: The trouble is that you can make the anniversary group with 8 clues... this is excessive and unhelpful (4 months, 1 week ago)

Simon Peter @ #18756: The Georges are silly - not a good group. Could we please have a grid that doesn't mention Harry Potter for once? Also: they are all BILLionaires, not just MILLionaires - should have been expected (4 months, 1 week ago)

OSSIEP9 @ #18754: FirstGofer.....can I clarify your comment re unique answers please. Are you saying that no answer should be able to be in more than one group......surely that is part of what makes the puzzles....puzzling! Or have I misinterpreted your comment? (4 months, 1 week ago)

Simon Peter @ #18763: You didn't accept disciples! May the wrath of the lord come upon you and your flock (4 months, 1 week ago)

Malcolm @ #189: Didn't know who Mousse T was, so went with Welsh for that group (4 months, 1 week ago)

Dobby @ #18756: Not good (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jac @ #13008: nice one. Didn't get the occupational names - thought it had something to do with Harry :-) (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jac @ #13003: Enjoyed this one, even with the spelling error. (4 months, 1 week ago)

a @ #15520: I had "tax" for the "saving" group (tax money, tax time, tax day, tax file) (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jac @ #13021: If Harry isn't accepted - the plural of Harry is certainly not Harry's - Harry's what? (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #8161: Excellent Grid Good cross overs. However I put fim families and got it wrong.... boo hiss (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jac @ #13026: nice :) (4 months, 1 week ago)

a @ #18756: presidents and tech groups are too broad, I'm sure there's other groups with 3 Georges and a Harry (e.g. next in line to the throne through time)... I figured out pretty quickly that if it was a fair quiz then the Georges had to be together (nice idea btw!) but that then makes it too easy since you can just go through clicking these with a fourth answer... putting Albus as a Potter was either very clever or very cruel, as most people will think Dumbledore! (4 months, 1 week ago)

Timmon @ #18763: Should of used Disciples as well as Apostles. Didn't have a clue on the blue group. (Never seen or read Potter) And may be used better known Lily's ie. Allen or Savage. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jac @ #112: hmmm, comedienne did for me. Or rather, didn't. (4 months, 1 week ago)

FirstGofer @ #18754: I got 10/10 and typed gems. But no unique answer as you can swap Diamond with Sapphire or Ruby. (4 months, 1 week ago)

FirstGofer @ #18739: Nice one... didn't see the White Wine solution... opted for sweet, but couldn't see how gazpacho fitted in. That would be because it didn't! haha (4 months, 1 week ago)

Tcv @ #18735: Kiitos! I liked the -anders! The dog one was hard for me :D (4 months, 1 week ago)

Mister Tom @ #18746: Also found this very straightforward, I think because Most of the crossovers only registered after the fact. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Els @ #18664: 10/10 love these grids - really gets the grey matter working (4 months, 1 week ago)

Jac @ #18739: I liked it - but put amputees and got incorrect. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Aardvark @ #18754: Got them all - but two didn't accept my answers. I like to type in the minimum when adding answers so might just be me being lazy. (4 months, 1 week ago)
