Peekay @ #13748: Seriousley let down by answer definitions (4 hours, 10 minutes ago)

S.spiro @ #13772: Homophones is a bit generic... (4 hours, 20 minutes ago)

Erin @ #13748: Currency is money you fool (4 hours, 59 minutes ago)

Grugen @ #13713: Good grid, brilliantly devious (7 hours, 41 minutes ago)

Mr. Flibble @ #13769: Brilliant - but the one grouping didn't have the two obvious terms in it (biblical, scriptural), though "bible" was the answer. Really enjoyable! Thank you! (8 hours, 56 minutes ago)

Grugen @ #13721: Good grid, nice one! (9 hours, 20 minutes ago)

EJG @ #13771: huh? (10 hours, 33 minutes ago)

Lars Thorwald @ #13729: Grrrrrr! (12 hours, 42 minutes ago)

Caz231231 @ #13755: After the two TV programmes, I went to pot! (15 hours, 1 minute ago)

Caz231231 @ #13749: Seconded! (15 hours, 5 minutes ago)

Caz231231 @ #13748: Champions League winners should be accepted. Same with currencies. (15 hours, 10 minutes ago)

PB @ #13769: Good grid but the tricky part with numbers is you can always find another solution. For example swap the 1 and the 125 and you have a group where every number is cubed and another group where every number is divisible by 5. (18 hours ago)

stevo67 @ #1996: Pelican rise is missing an S (19 hours, 24 minutes ago)

Ted @ #13748: Please, European and U.K. Teams - champions league teams incorrect when answer is football teams ! (1 day ago)

RossChris @ #13765: Thanks, Mr Tom. Nopal is a cactus, apparently. I was going to use "no parking" but thought it better to use a single word. Stump would have been a superior choice. (1 day, 2 hours ago)

Mister Tom @ #13765: Like the Duffy Group. Nopal is a new one on me, think I used stump :-) (1 day, 2 hours ago)

dabba722 @ #1396: Good puzzle (1 day, 3 hours ago)

molly malone @ #13755: was a very puzzling grid (1 day, 5 hours ago)

stevo67 @ #8240: "Currencies" not being accepted (1 day, 6 hours ago)

😂😻👍💪👍👍👍 @ #13764: 😂😂👍👍😂😂👍👍 (1 day, 8 hours ago)

toast @ #13762: Ragman- T S Eliot I should think. (1 day, 8 hours ago)

Ragman @ #13762: Who does Eliot refer to? (1 day, 8 hours ago)

toast @ #13744: Liked the governess line but didn't share your knowledge of popular culture so despite the easy cow line I didn't manage a decent score. (1 day, 9 hours ago)

dabba722 @ #1747: This was a very good grid (1 day, 10 hours ago)

dabba722 @ #2093: good grid (1 day, 10 hours ago)

Alphabetty @ #13748: 30 secs to complete! Not really anything to challenge answers too varied and could only really fall into one catagory too simplistic (1 day, 11 hours ago)

Alphabetty @ #3016: Bit different to usual style anagrammes and a beginning letter in common?! (1 day, 11 hours ago)

Graham @ #13757: Enjoyed this. We had never heard of a drupe before, so it was educational, too! (1 day, 11 hours ago)

Alphabetty @ #13751: 39 secs to complete (1 day, 11 hours ago)

Alphabetty @ #13752: 24 seconds to complete?! (1 day, 11 hours ago)

Alphabetty @ #13754: I knew the links just couldn’t pick the right ones! (1 day, 11 hours ago)

Alphabetty @ #13754: (1 day, 11 hours ago)

Alphabetty @ #2296: Highest score yet (1 day, 12 hours ago)

JJLeDJ @ #13751: Port is not a part of a ship it is a direction on a ship like fron and back (1 day, 12 hours ago)

Veggie @ #9708: My "contain bird's names" was not accepted. Frustrating. (1 day, 21 hours ago)

stevo67 @ #13750: Some good crossovers (1 day, 22 hours ago)

henty @ #13727: decent grid. one a little offbeat but overall fair play to you. (2 days ago)

Wiz @ #7392: You mean followed by I think. Very enjoyable and too good to hurry:) (2 days ago)

Melanie @ #13392: Any wall with Bob is good (2 days, 1 hour ago)

Andy @ #13748: Yeah I was a bit gutted with "currencies" not being accepted. (2 days, 1 hour ago)

stevo67 @ #7392: Liking the hills (2 days, 1 hour ago)

stevo67 @ #13748: "Champions League winners" is obviously too precise... (2 days, 1 hour ago)

stevo67 @ #13753: Towcester is misspelt; "cigarettes" didn't work (2 days, 1 hour ago)

Iain @ #13727: Nice attempt! (2 days, 4 hours ago)

toast @ #13742: I like this a lot. Good ideas and variety. Well done. (2 days, 5 hours ago)

Graham @ #13749: Good grid, but I think you need to revisit the keywords for the answers. British Prime Ministers, European Cities of Culture and Cats all came up as wrong... I would like to argue that they were in fact right! (2 days, 5 hours ago)

N @ #10509: Marvellous grid - thank you! (2 days, 6 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13753: I think there is more than one solution here. Your building society connection could also be categorised as towns/cities in Yorkshire; and as Beverley also has a racecourse it could be switched with Ripon as a place in Yorkshire and be a correct solution. (2 days, 7 hours ago)

chris @ #13745: moor not accepted. fish- better if the word either precedes or follows, not effective if it's either. cock- this group was OK although no red herrings. ice hockey/curling?? pick one and stick to it. Learn to group things and include red herrings and plenty of key words for acceptable answers. When you've learnt to do this then keep posting new ones. (2 days, 8 hours ago)

chris @ #13747: Canary Islands not named after birds. BANTAMS is correct spelling. One flew over the Cuckoo's nest (note the apostrophe) + generally poor group. Culture... before or after a word. Please, talk about clutching at straws. (2 days, 8 hours ago)

chris @ #13748: currencies isn't accepted! wtf? (2 days, 8 hours ago)

toast @ #13746: Good one. (2 days, 9 hours ago)

Gembo @ #13748: The links weren’t precise enough (2 days, 9 hours ago)

N @ #10559: Nice grid - thanks. (2 days, 11 hours ago)

N @ #10561: “Red” not accepted?! Otherwise good grid. (2 days, 11 hours ago)

Bowie @ #13722: Same from me Flanners. Nice tough mixture. (2 days, 11 hours ago)

Bowie @ #13723: Hooked me with this one Bluesy (2 days, 11 hours ago)

Mister Tom @ #13691: Nice ideas - interestingly, Strand is also an old tobacco brand (I did something with this and monopoly a while back :-p ) (2 days, 12 hours ago)

Mister Tom @ #13747: ... He beat me to it. (Also, Bantams!) (2 days, 12 hours ago)

Mister Tom @ #13748: All valid groups... Try to make sure every group has some way of getting confused with other groups: mint -> dollar doesn't really work (2 days, 12 hours ago)

JJLeDJ @ #13747: The Canary Islands are named after the dogs that where found there (Canine) and the birds are named after the island not the other way round (2 days, 13 hours ago)

Darren @ #186: Excellent. Nice hidden numbers! (2 days, 13 hours ago)

Darren @ #184: Good wall, pretty straightforward. Some people obviously don't get the point that there are supposed to be words which fit into more than one category. It's what makes it more challenging to solve. (2 days, 13 hours ago)

N @ #10830: Great grid. Thanks! (2 days, 14 hours ago)

Redkite @ #525: Graphs should have legends, although not scales (2 days, 15 hours ago)

N @ #13712: Flag connection is tenuous at best, Marky Mark connection is poor and how “boy bands” wasn’t accepted is beyond me. Also, Judi Dench is spelt with an “i” not a “y”. (2 days, 16 hours ago)

Ejg @ #13733: Changed my mind. Loved it. (2 days, 23 hours ago)

CellBlock @ #13741: Is "loops beach" an autocorrect of "koopa"? (3 days ago)

Joe @ #13742: Difficult one! (3 days, 1 hour ago)

Midge @ #13740: No, punk precedes or follows the words. You should have one or the other. Typo not good either. But a nice try. (3 days, 1 hour ago)

rubbish @ #13740: rohmbus? (3 days, 1 hour ago)

Hank @ #13694: I hate (3 days, 2 hours ago)

Wiz @ #13741: Labyrinth, but some good ideas! (3 days, 4 hours ago)

kittymcg @ #13731: I have learnt something. Thank you! (3 days, 4 hours ago)

kittymcg @ #13731: I have learnt something. Thank you! (3 days, 4 hours ago)

Rolf @ #13740: Friday night calamity aren't you Wiz? (3 days, 4 hours ago)

Wiz @ #13740: Sorry, what a blunder, follows not precedes...oh dear, what a blunder. (3 days, 4 hours ago)

Wiz @ #13740: Follows not succeeds.and a typo! otherwise, not bad! (3 days, 5 hours ago)

Stevo67 @ #9616: "Famous firsts" should be allowed (3 days, 5 hours ago)

Griddy @ #13733: Disgusting! (3 days, 5 hours ago)

toast @ #13711: Enjoyed this though I had to guess the duck connection which I was not familiar with. (3 days, 5 hours ago)

toast @ #13731: Tricky but doable one with good explanations , liked the XxX line, thanks. (3 days, 5 hours ago)

toast @ #13722: Liked the full explanations and the touch of humour. (3 days, 6 hours ago)

Darren @ #18: A bunch of random adverbs as a group? Seriously? :-/ (3 days, 6 hours ago)

anthony @ #13736: check spelling of some words (3 days, 7 hours ago)

Dick Swallows @ #13737: Easy mate (3 days, 7 hours ago)

EJG @ #13733: rather puerile (3 days, 8 hours ago)

Nice person @ #13728: This is A very good grid, thanks! (3 days, 9 hours ago)

Wiz @ #7469: What's wrong with thaw? (3 days, 9 hours ago)

Brett @ #7474: Not good. Audi != Aldi (3 days, 9 hours ago)

Brett @ #7469: Thaw?!!!! It's not meteorological or logical (3 days, 9 hours ago)

Flump @ #13712: Like others the grammatically correct "boy bands" registered as incorrect. The last group had tenuous connections. (3 days, 23 hours ago)

kittymcg @ #13723: Great, as always. Thank you (3 days, 23 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13699: Well done on providing an, er, acceptable answer!!! I just tried typing "muses" for the same connection and it was accepted. Clearly, any word with a u and s consecutively in it is going to be suitable. Much watch out for that in the future. (4 days, 2 hours ago)

Wiz @ #13723: Get well soon, Blues! No doubt you will with your bottled cure-all. (4 days, 2 hours ago)

anonymous @ #13701: programming languages is not accepted for the first one and monopoly spaces is not accepted for the third (4 days, 3 hours ago)

Blues @ #13723: Thank you all very encouraging. Toast Wiz, sitting here nursing the flu. Which in hindsight isn't a bad thing because I've just found the cure... Whiskey (see quiz explanations)... Actually it might not be whiskey but it seems pretty familiar and the bottle is the correct shape... Well the correct colour... Looking at it now it looks more like a sauce bottle... but hey ho! at least it's glass. One sec... hic... Brandy maybe, but cheers anyway. (4 days, 3 hours ago)

Jezebel @ #13723: Super duper...and I’m with you on which is the best hour :) (4 days, 3 hours ago)

Ian @ #13726: Good grid. Difficult but not too difficult Lots of red herrings. (4 days, 4 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13725: Sorry for the typo, folks. The entry should of course read SKIPJACK TUNA and not skipjack tina, though this does not affect the connection in any way. Chris wants to know who skipjack tina is as she suspects it might be a woman I have been seeing on the side without telling her!! (4 days, 4 hours ago)

toast @ #13704: OK , the purple people eater is an old favourite we all whistle in the bath , but Tim Rice? Come on! (4 days, 4 hours ago)

Nathan @ #13727: One surreal category but worthwhile overall, good puzzling :) (4 days, 4 hours ago)

toast @ #13723: Blues -Good to see you back on the right side of the bars. The grid did me up like a rippek but then it did take Wiz and myself a bit longer than is healthy to work out which of the three of us had disappeared so perhaps trying a hard one was a bit optimistic of me. (4 days, 4 hours ago)

Darkness 11/11 @ #13723: VERY good. Thanks (4 days, 6 hours ago)

Lewisham Lou @ #13727: Tricky. Good attempt nevertheless. (4 days, 6 hours ago)

Iain @ #13713: Wow that was tricky as there were many crossovers. I got 1 category. I would say it's a good effort though. Worth a go if you like TV & film. (4 days, 6 hours ago)

Coneheads @ #13724: Very good :) (4 days, 6 hours ago)

ejg @ #13723: Yours grids are excellent - love 'em (4 days, 7 hours ago)

Wiz @ #13723: That was fun,Blues! Toast and I ,and others I am sure ,have missed you! We had a few ideas as to where you might be. (4 days, 8 hours ago)

be26 @ #13712: The Mark Wahlberg connection doesn't work - he wasn't in NKOTB and his brother being in it is too much of a stretch. (4 days, 10 hours ago)

Von @ #13715: Very clever puzzle which was quite tricky. Hilarious links (4 days, 10 hours ago)

Coneheads @ #13699: I typed in 'Sausages' for the US State Capitals one, and it displayed as a right answer. I appreciate the gift, but I don't feel I deserved the point :o) (4 days, 11 hours ago)

Coneheads @ #13713: This one was pretty much impossible. But not the good type of impossible. (4 days, 11 hours ago)

@ejg @ #13712: enter "boyband" (4 days, 11 hours ago)

ejg @ #13718: A reader's current book? No idea what that means. Japan is not AN island, neither is Samoa. Admittedly, Hawaii Island (or The Big Island) is an island in the state of Hawaii. (4 days, 12 hours ago)

ejg @ #13713: Personally, I dislike grids that have two squares the same - using incorrectly spelled names as a solution is annoying as many grids contain unintentional errors. (4 days, 12 hours ago)

ejg @ #13712: didn't accept boy bands and the marky mark connection a bit laboured. (4 days, 12 hours ago)

PB @ #13718: My favorite thing about China is definitely China (4 days, 20 hours ago)

g @ #13689: can't fault it (5 days, 1 hour ago)

g @ #13691: tobacco products? (5 days, 1 hour ago)

g @ #13704: purple people eater? (5 days, 2 hours ago)

g @ #13706: really enjoyable (5 days, 2 hours ago)

knife @ #13709: Yes, good one. Dumbo threw me. Possibly a bit obscure, but perhaps just my lack of knowledge. (5 days, 2 hours ago)

Tootô @ #13682: Nice one! Love the Community reference (5 days, 2 hours ago)

JonBob @ #13704: The "Cycloptic" line would make for an excellent Sequences Round question! (5 days, 2 hours ago)

Tootô @ #13691: I got ten points, dem whinies should leave you alone. Nice one, not too difficult, not too easy! (5 days, 2 hours ago)

Tootô @ #13702: Ellen Page was easy, Georgia cities were fine to figure out, and the rest was actually not that hard anymore because there were five names left - but I got lucky that I excluded the right one without losing all my lives (5 days, 3 hours ago)

Anon @ #13701: Did not accept "programming languages" or "monopoly" as correct answers and yet apparently they were? (5 days, 3 hours ago)

Tootô @ #13709: Nice one! Deserves more than 3 stars (5 days, 3 hours ago)

toast @ #13706: Good explanations thanks. (5 days, 4 hours ago)

JonBob @ #13709: Nice misdirects! (5 days, 5 hours ago)

Wiz @ #13692: Now there's a thought toast.Had missed Blues too but imagined it was to do with rugby! (5 days, 5 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13711: Nice one! (5 days, 6 hours ago)

Honeybb @ #13710: Nice, it was very hard to figure out, love the movie reference that was a red herring... (5 days, 6 hours ago)

Dave @ #13421: Good one! Took me a few moments to figure out the link between the group with lace in it, but fortunately at that point the clock has stopped running. (5 days, 8 hours ago)

Matt @ #13702: Very good and very difficult. Got thrown off by months and Brians (5 days, 9 hours ago)

Matt @ #13701: Didn't accept 'programming languages' or 'monopoly' (5 days, 9 hours ago)

Matt @ #13703: 'J' isn't accepted for the J group (5 days, 9 hours ago)

squareeyes @ #13695: Cheers toast, basically this is an online communal parlour game isn't it! (5 days, 12 hours ago)

David @ #35: Great! Nice and tricky. (5 days, 23 hours ago)

Jim @ #13694: Really nice variety! This was a fun one. (6 days ago)

Judy @ #2297: Awesome grid! (6 days, 1 hour ago)

Judy @ #13421: Good one! (6 days, 1 hour ago)

BelgianAlien @ #13421: This grid taught me I don't do so well on these grids... but I still like trying. (6 days, 1 hour ago)

TommiBryson @ #13685: I had no idea they were all Test Cricketers too! that's rather amusing :D as for paper islands, they're cartographic errors so to speak; islands that were included in multiple maps despite not being real. (6 days, 1 hour ago)

Only Me @ #13700: So 'Formula One' not enough then? 'part from that - loved it. (6 days, 2 hours ago)

toast @ #13692: Funny you should mention that Wiz. I was just wondering where Blues has got to... (6 days, 2 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13698: Good grid. (6 days, 2 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13700: Enjoyed it, nice connections. (6 days, 2 hours ago)

Colin Oscopy @ #13695: Liking your work. And a timely pancake reference too. (6 days, 3 hours ago)

Wiz @ #13692: Better than being behind bars though. (6 days, 4 hours ago)

toast @ #13692: On the other hand just being in the bars has proved to be of no help at all. Cheers anyway! (6 days, 5 hours ago)

Angry Derek @ #87: To many formattign erros. (6 days, 6 hours ago)

Prue @ #11973: Very enjoyable grid! (6 days, 6 hours ago)

toast @ #13695: I don't want to"pan" this or "gloss " over the skills shown in setting it but to be " Candide" it is no piece of cake. (6 days, 6 hours ago)

TeamV @ #13695: Hmmm (6 days, 9 hours ago)

Wiz @ #13685: I think it's or was in Copenhagen. And I think there is a stationery outlet with that name too. (6 days, 11 hours ago)

squareeyes @ #13692: Sometimes being a one-time bar piano player actually comes in useful! (6 days, 12 hours ago)

ejg @ #13691: shame it didn't accept tobacco - but good grid otherwise (6 days, 12 hours ago)

ejg @ #13685: I too put England Test Cricketers! Also, paper islands? I thought Emerald Isle... what are paper islands? (6 days, 13 hours ago)

SouthernDog @ #13693: Damn! My mistake! (6 days, 13 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13685: I enjoyed this grid, though I did not suggest the Canterbury Tales connection but proposed an alternative link. Alistair/Nick COOK, Nick KNIGHT, Dermot REEVE and Geoff MILLER are all present/former England test cricketers. (6 days, 14 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13686: Fun grid. Thank you. (6 days, 14 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13689: This was indeed good fun to solve. Thanks. (6 days, 15 hours ago)

Jeff @ #13693: You put planet twice in the same category. (6 days, 15 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13690: I enjoyed solving this one though I did not identify snooker balls as being a connection. Thanks for all your kind comments in relation to my puzzles, GRS. (6 days, 15 hours ago)

Jeff @ #13694: If you changed the insurance logo one to make it more accessible to people who don't live in the US then it'd be perfect. (6 days, 15 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13683: Thanks, PB, for your kind and helpful comments. If the issue was the Winter Olympic equipment category I used that simply because it is topical at present. (6 days, 15 hours ago)

Midge @ #13691: Good gridding, thank you (6 days, 15 hours ago)

PB @ #13682: Very enjoyable. Although you say 'recently' on Community? It's almost been five years.... (6 days, 18 hours ago)

PB @ #13683: I don't think he realises the colour of the category is based on the order they resolve in. I though all categories were quite good though (6 days, 18 hours ago)

JCG @ #13691: Though it's admittedly odd, the state is spelled "Connecticut." Fun categories. (6 days, 19 hours ago)

Matt G @ #13694: This is a great quiz! Will share ;) (6 days, 20 hours ago)

Conneticut? @ #13691: Google, use it! (6 days, 20 hours ago)

RossChris @ #13680: Good, challenging grid. (1 week ago)

toast @ #13677: Suggest you read the advice about using short word stems for acceptable answers. Otherwise a decent grid. (1 week ago)

g @ #13680: another good one (1 week ago)

g @ #13682: easy but still very good.thanks (1 week ago)

toast @ #13673: Wiz. The grid has been marked down so it only shows if you select grids of poor quality or better ( the default being good or better). Unfortunately that tends to happen to fiendish grids perhaps because people can't do them and feel bad. The grid doesn't deserve its low marking. (1 week ago)

ML @ #12914: Good walk can’t believe I didn’t get the profession link thought too cryptic (1 week ago)

Midge @ #13675: Beautiful. RIP (1 week ago)

Wiz @ #13673: Where has this grid gone? (1 week ago)

Wiz @ #13673: As toast said, imaginative and entertaining. A lot of thought was needed to create it I imagine, and to solve it took some too.i only managed one line. (1 week ago)

toast @ #13673: Imaginative though I suspect Brits don't use all the terms in quite the same way as (very well) explained. Funnily enough I set a grid long ago with a line of words with two more or less opposite meanings and one of them was " cleave " which you have used as your red herring! So obviously I think the grid is great. (1 week ago)

Xx @ #13673: Nope - too convoluted with the categories... (1 week ago)

JCG @ #13639: Americans solving the puzzle will answer "colors" not "colours" and not get credit for that category. Might have gone with "col" to avoid the spelling difference problem. (1 week ago)

Ml @ #12778: Not actual universal truths I wouldn’t call them living condition just outcomes of the living conditions more abstract than some tastebuds gallery exhibits (1 week ago)

Stevo67 @ #136: sloe gin (1 week ago)

Wiz @ #13669: A couple of nice lines here! (1 week, 1 day ago)

Rater @ #13668: Easy (1 week, 1 day ago)

Jem @ #8772: sorry but 50 in roman numerals is L not C. It should be 100!!! (1 week, 1 day ago)

tony @ #4639: excellent. would have spent 10 years solving the trig one.. (1 week, 1 day ago)

toast @ #13663: Good one. (1 week, 1 day ago)

RossChris @ #13667: This was compiled by Chris, not Ross. (1 week, 1 day ago)

Phil @ #2494: Idiot compiler Eponyms??? (1 week, 1 day ago)

Ian @ #7234: Nice grid, solved with 28 seconds to spare. Plenty of red herrings too. (1 week, 1 day ago)

Wiz @ #13659: Ok I've got my head my head around it now. (1 week, 1 day ago)

toast @ #13659: Sorry Knockers but Psmith is right . There can only be one (unique) solution since the format only permits one solution to be marked correct and it would make a nonsense of the game to mark a (second or third) workable solution as wrong. (1 week, 1 day ago)

Wiz @ #13659: I have never understood this Psmith. Thankyou for explanation, but I am still puzzled. (1 week, 1 day ago)

Psmith @ #13659: Red herrings are ok, encouraged even, but you need to make sure two answers can't simply be swapped between the groups they are in and the groups still work. For example old head/tin head and old man/tin man. It doesn't matter which group you put them in as the groups still work. There should only be one correct final answer for the grid. (1 week, 1 day ago)

Knockers @ #13659: Psmith and Ajay - that was deliberate and I thought I was being a genius. Is it against the rules?! (1 week, 1 day ago)

Psmith @ #13659: Head and Man can be swapped over in their groups too. Not good (1 week, 1 day ago)

Jezebel @ #13656: I liked this - a lot! Thanks. (1 week, 1 day ago)

Ajay @ #13659: 2 of the answers in the 'egg' group can be interchanged with 2 of the answers in the 'out' group (1 week, 1 day ago)

Midge @ #13659: Possibly the best, very clever, very difficult. Well done. (1 week, 1 day ago)

RossChris @ #13655: I agree with SouthernDog. This was fun. Good one. (1 week, 1 day ago)

RossChris @ #13643: I take it you are a Star Wars fan, GRS? I managed to solve this one. Good fun. (1 week, 1 day ago)

RossChris @ #13644: Didn't get the rebel bases or light saber duel connections; got confused with all the planets! Good grid. (1 week, 1 day ago)

RossChris @ #13659: Very tricky with so many crossovers. A great challenge! (1 week, 1 day ago)

RossChris @ #13658: Enjoyable grid. I couldn't identify the Peep Show connection. Good stuff and keep them coming. (1 week, 1 day ago)

GRS @ #13656: Love the flower group! (1 week, 1 day ago)

SouthernDog @ #13655: Fun (1 week, 1 day ago)

SouthernDog @ #13656: RossChris, you! (1 week, 1 day ago)

SouthernDog @ #13657: Quite fun, hard but not impossible (1 week, 1 day ago)

Midge @ #13642: Annagrams of animals! Are you having a laugh? That’s too hard. Liked the other groups though. (1 week, 2 days ago)

Julia @ #13602: Almost impossible if you don't live in London or support Arsenal. Shows a lack of imagination (1 week, 2 days ago)

Wonderful @ #13602: Fantastic quiz, very informative. Difficult, though! (1 week, 2 days ago)

GRS @ #13632: Oh my days (one). Too good for me! (1 week, 2 days ago)

GRS @ #13642: Yes, tough indeed! (1 week, 2 days ago)

GRS @ #13652: Brill! But 'poet' not accepted (otherwise would have got two). Loved the sidekick group! (1 week, 2 days ago)

Redkite @ #274: Do re mi not accepted, despite being the answer! (1 week, 2 days ago)

dabba @ #12979: Fun thank you (1 week, 2 days ago)

RossChris @ #13642: Tough one. Good stuff. (1 week, 2 days ago)

Andy @ #13649: Got 15 out of 16 (1 week, 2 days ago)

HMG @ #1396: 6 possibles for one category - not good (1 week, 2 days ago)

HMG @ #2297: (1 week, 2 days ago)

dabba @ #3607: This was rated as medium, I would rate it as easy. Fun thankyou (1 week, 2 days ago)

dabba @ #4069: I think the category "mutants" should have been ok (1 week, 2 days ago)

GRS @ #13595: Brilliant - even if linking words wrong! e.g. cross. Is that the only one. Loved it! (1 week, 2 days ago)

GRS @ #13611: Good groups! Vessel not given as correct tho... (1 week, 2 days ago)

GRS @ #13621: My second time!! Got all the groups except the Hitchcock link!!! Good one! (1 week, 2 days ago)

GRS @ #13640: Agree with Wiz! Bird group cool. (1 week, 2 days ago)

Wiz @ #13640: I enjoy your grids, full of surprises, but fair. (1 week, 2 days ago)

RossChris @ #13626: That is what I call fiendish. Beat me all ends up. (1 week, 2 days ago)

RossChris @ #13639: Enjoyable grid. Did not come up with the Harry Potter connection so you caught us with that one. Well done. (1 week, 2 days ago)

Wiz @ #13631: I think one has a double"ll"? (1 week, 2 days ago)

Wanda Doff @ #13630: Tough, but well constructed. (1 week, 2 days ago)

Redkite @ #269: Too samey (1 week, 2 days ago)

RossChris @ #13630: I enjoyed this one; quite challenging. Thank you and well done. (1 week, 2 days ago)

Shark @ #13045: Should gave accepted "pants" for the trousers group, otherwise an excellent wall. (1 week, 2 days ago)

banana @ #12850: too much specialist TV (1 week, 2 days ago)

Wiz @ #13626: Same for me, didn't have the knowledge to complete. Good groups though. (1 week, 2 days ago)

GRS @ #13624: Excellent! (1 week, 2 days ago)

GRS @ #13630: Good fun, a couple of tough connections (1 week, 2 days ago)

Banana @ #13616: Too much specialised music (1 week, 2 days ago)

dabba @ #10495: clever last set (1 week, 2 days ago)

Garagehead @ #13618: Nice grid, got there in the end! (1 week, 2 days ago)

Midge @ #13626: Too fiendish for me, got one group, by accident! (1 week, 2 days ago)

Wiz @ #13284: I always think I could at least have got one of these lines. I think I panic and the numbers slide into a blur.This, I hasten to say, is not a criticism of the grid. (1 week, 3 days ago)

89 @ #13284: 65 (1 week, 3 days ago)

Wiz @ #13623: G&Ts. Sorry! And I sadly haven't had any! (1 week, 3 days ago)

Wiz @ #13623: It's another rather fine grid requiring and displaying a wide spread of knowledge.i didn't solve it but I took a good shot. Pretty impressive after the G&it's! (1 week, 3 days ago)

RossChris @ #13617: Got the Bettys and the capitals but beaten on the other two. Tough grid. (1 week, 3 days ago)

Wiz @ #13624: Awesome crossovers,tied me up in knots! Clever,Thankyou! (1 week, 3 days ago)

Jezebel @ #13610: Love the Nutella reference! (1 week, 3 days ago)

David @ #33: Really good, well done! (1 week, 3 days ago)

Anton Deck @ #13623: Defence not accepted as an answer, apart from that good grid, if a little too difficult for me. (1 week, 3 days ago)

RossChris @ #13623: Indeed I have and I must apologise profusely for doing so. One too many gin and tonics, methinks! (1 week, 3 days ago)

Only Me @ #13622: Good one, enjoyed it. (1 week, 3 days ago)

toast @ #13619: Good stuff. (1 week, 3 days ago)

toast @ #13602: Tantalising. So close and yet..... (1 week, 3 days ago)

RossChris @ #13622: I enjoyed this one. It concerned two of my favourite subjects - Strictly and Bond - and you beat me with the French connection (no pun intended). Got the group but did not see the link. Well done. (1 week, 3 days ago)

toast @ #13606: Liked the Thomas line, though I didn't get it. (1 week, 3 days ago)

Ethan @ #13622: Loved it, thanks (1 week, 3 days ago)

Uncstebah @ #13622: I apologise. I've just realised that there are 2 possible solutions to this grid. You could swap Brosnan and Connery and still be correct. Sorry again. (1 week, 3 days ago)

Ethan @ #10172: loved it, thanks (1 week, 3 days ago)

Uncstebah @ #13619: Another nice one. Dived into the handicaps but got bogged down trying to remember a 4th Paul Simon tune. Thank you. (1 week, 3 days ago)

Uncstebah @ #13620: I liked this one. Thank you. I like learning from grids and now I know about tea roses! (1 week, 3 days ago)

dabba @ #13543: The for the toilet catagory is reading as incorrect even though I entered it as the toilet. Thank you for the grid (1 week, 3 days ago)

dabba @ #13545: Nice beginner grid (1 week, 3 days ago)

dabba @ #13605: I think King, club queen etc should not include club which is a card suit but not a card designation so it seems a little out of the category but of course just imho. Thank you for the grid (1 week, 3 days ago)

dabba @ #13604: thank you (1 week, 3 days ago)

Xx @ #13605: Good but pretty easy (1 week, 3 days ago)

Wiz @ #13621: I did enjoy doing this,Thankyou! Nice crossovers. (1 week, 3 days ago)

Ptim @ #13621: Getting better? (1 week, 3 days ago)

Chuck @ #13353: I'd love to know how JJLeDJ pronounces "for" and "four". Good grid. I got the Gervais ones before I even saw Extras, so the red herring didn't work on me. I was convinced there were chewing gums! (1 week, 3 days ago)

toast @ #13610: Like it , (though I have French relatives and I can assure you that almost anything would merge seamlessly into the Nutella group). (1 week, 3 days ago)

RickRoll @ #13619: Excellent. Fell for the Simon and Garfunkel trick. (1 week, 3 days ago)

RossChris @ #13620: Oops. Sorry about that, GRS. I added an "s". Any way I can amend it? (1 week, 3 days ago)

Chuck @ #13383: I said "TV shows" and it was incorrect :( Victoria Coren would have raised her eyebrow and asked me to be more specific ... (1 week, 3 days ago)

Chuck @ #13412: yeah, agree - wider range of terms needed for answers as it was saying they were wrong. Nice grid though. (1 week, 3 days ago)

GRS @ #13620: Good fun! 'Airport' not accepted though... Hybrid tea roses tricky! (1 week, 3 days ago)

GRS @ #13618: One for the seasoned traveller! (1 week, 3 days ago)

OI @ #9863: decent (1 week, 3 days ago)

OI @ #4069: WRONG (1 week, 3 days ago)

Wiz @ #13618: So! The clue was in the name! Did for me but some who know will enjoy! (1 week, 3 days ago)

Wiz @ #13612: I enjoyed this, nicely balanced! (1 week, 3 days ago)

Grugen @ #1937: Wonderfully obscure, you must be great to have on a pub quiz team And I thought I knew my football. (1 week, 3 days ago)

RickRoll @ #13602: Ridiculous (1 week, 3 days ago)

Grugen @ #13610: Top grid, made my head hurt, nice one. (1 week, 3 days ago)

Wiz @ #13609: That was a nicely varied and satisfying grid. (1 week, 3 days ago)

Wiz @ #13594: Of course it's Lenin, missed that. (1 week, 3 days ago)

SouthernDog @ #13600: Fun (1 week, 3 days ago)

Grugen @ #13593: Thanks for the comments - Yes, Jezebel, Owen did score against Argentina in 1998 and Lineker played in the 1990 semi final so there's a couple of ambiguities in there, just for spite! (1 week, 3 days ago)

Benny Dorm @ #13602: Very tough. Beat me all ends up! (1 week, 3 days ago)

Stew Dapple @ #13606: Very good. Teasing and intelligent, well done. (1 week, 3 days ago)

EJG @ #13594: It's Lenin no Lenny and, as Donald said, Sancho Panza. (1 week, 3 days ago)

EJG @ #13600: good one (1 week, 3 days ago)

SouthernDog @ #13574: Cheers (1 week, 3 days ago)

anthony @ #13605: a good grid (1 week, 3 days ago)

EJG @ #13601: Hmmm... a big fat zero. Think some specialist London knowledge needed for this one. Bishop's Road appears twice and '2' is tenuous at best (1 week, 3 days ago)

Jeff @ #13602: Bit too provincial, not recommended for anyone outside London. (1 week, 3 days ago)

Ethan @ #184: loved it, thanks (1 week, 4 days ago)

Bear @ #13602: Excellent - especially if you know your London history! (1 week, 4 days ago)

FP23 @ #13601: Sorry, there is a mistake here - I entered Bishop's Road twice (and didn't notice while checking). It should have been 'Bear' instead! (1 week, 4 days ago)

FrankieJoe @ #13574: Really enjoyed this one! Well done :) (1 week, 4 days ago)

Bmd34 @ #13474: Got it but wouldn’t accept ‘apostrophes’ and ‘hyphens’? (1 week, 4 days ago)

Donald @ #13594: It should be Sancho Panza. (1 week, 4 days ago)

OKTarg @ #13598: Yikes! Was a fun puzzle but very hard (1 week, 4 days ago)

Jezebel @ #13572: Super stuff, thanks. Far too knotty for me but all made perfect sense when I saw the ‘reveal’! (1 week, 4 days ago)

Tara Woolfolk @ #13419: I think I just figured it out. 3rd line should be Cups. 4th should be things that end in Family. Argh. Never have seen or done this before! Would love to find more contestant quizzes for Ask Me Another! (1 week, 4 days ago)

Jezebel @ #13593: Liked this, thanks. Am I wrong to think that Owen and Beckham could be swapped? I thought Owen scored against Argentina when he was a wunderkind? (1 week, 4 days ago)

Ian @ #13576: Just the right level of difficulty. Plenty of red herrings, solved with nine seconds to spare ! (1 week, 4 days ago)

GRS @ #3: Good! (1 week, 4 days ago)

GRS @ #48: top notch (1 week, 4 days ago)

GRS @ #13593: Tough!! (1 week, 4 days ago)

Wiz @ #13594: I thought there were some nice ideas here. Different .thankyou! (1 week, 4 days ago)

Wiz @ #13590: Cool grid,nice and varied. (1 week, 4 days ago)

GRS @ #13590: Very good - should have got Monkey_ ! (1 week, 4 days ago)

GRS @ #13572: Fun grid! Liked the coffee group (1 week, 4 days ago)

GRS @ #13574: Tricky but really good fun! (1 week, 4 days ago)

RickRoll @ #13594: Had potential but a bit sloppy. (1 week, 4 days ago)

Ptim @ #13597: (1 week, 4 days ago)

phoenix177 @ #10577: Enjoyed this (1 week, 4 days ago)

phoenix177 @ #11243: A bit too obscure for my liking (1 week, 4 days ago)

phoenix177 @ #9875: Great overlaps (1 week, 4 days ago)

SouthernDog @ #13557: Tough, but fun. (1 week, 4 days ago)

phoenix177 @ #4069: Good red herrings, Fuji is my favourite apple! (1 week, 4 days ago)

Wiz @ #13585: That was my dodgy one! (1 week, 4 days ago)

SouthernDog @ #13572: Coffee one was a zinger, but great grid! (1 week, 4 days ago)

EJG @ #13585: Am I being thick? Don't understand the books group. Didn't accept diarists, bizarrely (1 week, 4 days ago)

Wiz @ #13585: Had high hopes when I saw this, two good lines, one ok and one dodgy I think. But thankyou! (1 week, 4 days ago)

Omen @ #13581: Nice!! (1 week, 4 days ago)

Steve h @ #13499: Don't remember why I messed up so take the notes sorry (1 week, 5 days ago)

rids @ #4337: charlton not charleton. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Ryan-SoCal @ #13580: 0/10! I got the connections once they were sorted though. Great job! (1 week, 5 days ago)

Lance K @ #13580: That Right was mean (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #11579: Good one! (1 week, 5 days ago)

Gunther245 @ #13581: This was pretty good. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #11902: Definitely should have accepted "rulers" which fit your category better than your answer did. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #11903: As others have said your answers are too specific and you need to accept synonyms. Such as dozen for twelve for 12. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #11911: Parts of an apple is WAY too specific. Those are parts of most every fruit. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #13372: Definitely should have accepted Apostles. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Seamus @ #6093: Very good and entertaining wall, but as others have commented answers are rather strict. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Wiz @ #13527: I liked priministers as a word but it was difficult to guess! (1 week, 5 days ago)

Anon @ #9005: Could swap Martin Chuzzlewit and Craig David between groups. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Steve h @ #13527: Prime ministers sorry (1 week, 5 days ago)

Steve h @ #13575: Justin bieber No chance! (1 week, 5 days ago)

toeswest @ #13572: Nice grid! (1 week, 5 days ago)

TMcB23 @ #13552: I put 'flying' and 'cake' as two of the options and it didn't accept them? (1 week, 5 days ago)

toeswest @ #13575: Fun grid ... (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #8497: Consider accepting "Money" for "Currency" (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #8652: Loved the letters. (1 week, 5 days ago)

TMcB23 @ #13572: Really like this one. I got the owls and the _express groups but only just before the end because there were s many red herrings! (1 week, 5 days ago)

Lance K @ #13561: Ya I didn’t get anything correct (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #11117: It accepts "Singers" for British Singers and "Authors" for British authors, but does NOT accept "Counties" for British Counties. What?!? (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #11636: I also put Electronics (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #11803: First of all, Eminem is not a band. Second, it should not be wrong if I know it's currency, but don't specify that it's "Fifty" of a currency. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #11843: As others have said, I can't believe that "Central America" is not accepted here. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #12498: Can't believe it wouldn't accept "Movies" as being correct for "Action Movies." (1 week, 5 days ago)

Dave @ #12922: Couple of problems with this one. Twelve days of Christmas was inconsistent. Three of them were the nouns that were given as gifts, but the fourth one was the adjective describing the gift. The category described as "Christmas Cake" wouldn't accept the answer of "Christmas Treats", which is actually a more accurate description, as Panettone is actually a bread and pudding is not necessarily cake. (1 week, 5 days ago)

David @ #32: Funky House? (1 week, 5 days ago)

Red Salamander @ #13553: I hadn't heard of Daisy as a nickname for Margaret. Possibly a bit obscure these days... (1 week, 5 days ago)

Red Salamander @ #13552: Nice grid - but failing to capitalise all of the clues made it a lot easier to break them into their respective groups! (1 week, 5 days ago)

Red Salamander @ #13556: Yes, a great grid indeed. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Wiz @ #13553: I just know I didn't know enough to solve this, but hats off to those who do...and the gridder of course! (1 week, 5 days ago)

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ @ #13569: Maureen Lipman was not a former ballet dancer!!!! (1 week, 5 days ago)

I CAN BE BROWN I CAN BE BLUE I CAN BE VIOLET AND SKY I CAN BE HAPPY I CAN BE PURPLE I CAN BE ANYTHING YOU LIKE I CAN BE MEAN I CAN BE.... ETC ... ETC.... @ #13326: I have never played a funnier grid!! (1 week, 5 days ago)

RadioRentals @ #13557: I got 6/10. It was good :) (1 week, 5 days ago)

Boo @ #13518: i thought it was good! couple of tricky ones what with the red herrings but i did like it. (1 week, 5 days ago)

Steve @ #13546: I love it (1 week, 5 days ago)

Excellent @ #13553: We need more like this: intelligent design, a good general cultural knowledge helps but possible to solve without, very satisfying to complete. (1 week, 5 days ago)

ejg @ #13569: must stop typing synonyms as an answer! (1 week, 5 days ago)

Janice @ #12989: The Fictional Mr question came up incorrect even though I put the answer twice (1 week, 5 days ago)

Steve h @ #13548: Not bad (1 week, 6 days ago)

Robby44 @ #6: This is difficult to the point of being outrageous. (1 week, 6 days ago)

squareeyes @ #13469: Thank you for your kind comments. Re billhooks, I've been feeling a bit uneasy about this, was it cheating to have the "hook" as a separate word, making it sound a bit like a piece of fishing tackle? But Google gives both versions, including "Bill Hooks" for sale through Spear and Jackson, respectable firm of ironmongers. So hopefully this is OK. (2 weeks, 5 days ago)

Jezebel @ #13469: Fun stuff, thank you. Although as I’ve been brushing up my pedantry on another grid...I have a feeling that billhook is all one word? (2 weeks, 5 days ago)

Hutch @ #9004: "Cows" was given as an incorrect connection. But isn't this actually more accurate than "Beef" (which doesn't apply to darter's target or minotaur's head) and "Bull" (which doesn't apply to Ian Botham or horseradish sauce)? (2 weeks, 5 days ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #13454: I believe that mozarts full name was Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. As for the 'without a score', most of the movie cast away has no accompanying music (Score) Loot gained from a robbery would be 'the score' so an unsuccessful one ....... 70 = 3 score (20) +10. I assume the other one is a reference o the singer Matthias Goerne, but im not sure why he HAS a score, and everyone else is without. hth (2 weeks, 5 days ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #13465: although it is lacking in variety and fairly straightforward, this was really enjoyable. Good grid with some good crossovers (2 weeks, 5 days ago)

Ridiculous. @ #13287: Having one category about junk food and three about media is way too specific.

JamesD @ #13233: I took this as a commentary on the many grids posted here that are effectively impossible - you spend three minutes racking your brain, and then when the connections are revealed they're something like "anagrams of West Ham full backs from the 1980s". I'm talking about answers that rely on convoluted links rooted in an extremely specific area of knowledge that the compiler must know will be shared with a very small proportion of users. In a second line, Bringiton takes aim wonderfully at the grids that leave you tearing your hair out because they're just plain wrong. An option is replaced with a similar word, or the answer given is just not correct. What I feel makes this really charming satire is the execution. The wonderful group "All things that I've seen in real life" not only lampoons the connections based on the setter's personal knowledge, but also paints a great picture of the childlike character who is being portrayed: proud of having seen everything from Concorde to a lizard. Rolf Harris is a great addition there, but Breasts puts the icing on the cake of this imaginary pre-teen showoff. That's then carried on with the even more personal and humorously scatalogical "things I've pooed in", before moving on to aim some blows at grids with poor fact checking. The Beatles group cleverly picks up on about the most obvious foursome possible, but robs you of the point on connections by claiming they're members of One Direction; and then we get the surrealist joke of "Things that don't exist" - including the moon and owls. This sort of subversive comedy only works when played straight, and I feel Bringiton has done very well. The commentary on how some grids can be annoying is presented well, but also laid over the creation of a truly funny character in the supposed grid compiler. I suspect Bringiton may be an alter ego of a more regular name posting here, though that's pure conjecture. (1 month, 1 week ago)

Curious cat @ #13171: A littl harsh there, paco, although I did find the links a little obscure and unrealistic for people to get, besides the homie group.

toast @ #13161: I don't think some of this criticism is fair. It certainly isn't a general knowledge- based grid but then nor is one based on Pokémon or a dozen other subjects which appear from time to time, and at least if you are not comfortable with numbers you can get out in a few seconds rather than puzzle for three minutes to find you had 0% chance.

KloppityKlopp @ #13003: I’m with the Cat on this one. As someone who has taught British English to more non-native speakers than I care to remember, I concur that the current convention is for the ‘th’ to be silent in the word ‘asthma’. (2 months ago)

Courtney Catfish @ #13015: Wow- that was tough. Very well constructed. (2 months ago)

ejg @ #13011: Good grid but didn't accept either Girls aloud or Old testament women (2 months ago)

romeo @ #12440: Loved it - completely foxed me! Like John, I knew the categories but unable to sort them in time! Well done :) (2 months ago)

Benny Dorm @ #13012: Good stuff-had me fooled. (2 months ago)

ConfusedBloke @ #13003: Very nice grid with some good overlaps and red herrings, but... Draft or draught? Where is the silent letter in asthma? When you have a group of synonyms, accept synonym(s) as an answer. Don't make me try to guess which of many other possible synonyms you have used as a common definition. (2 months ago)

L @ #13011: Old Testament women should have been an acceptable answer and more accurate (2 months ago)

Curious cat @ #13012: Quite easy, but fun nonetheless! (2 months ago)

JamesD @ #13012: An extremely hard grid, but a great one. "Reinforce" is a classy red herring, with all the riding paraphernalia in there, and I was fooled by the shadow group of lines: zipline, whip line, fishing line, poetic line, and so on. Great work! (2 months ago)

anthony @ #13008: a good grid ,fun (2 months ago)

Heather @ #12979: JamesD I find you a bit much. (2 months ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12978: also '5' is not accepted as correct. Not that it matters too much, nobody is keeping score, you will be pleased to know I awarded myself the point anyway! (I could feel your concern) (2 months ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #13005: Actually only Real Madrid, out of those, has won the 'champions league' at least 3 times. The others won the 'European Cup' multiple times, it was called the champions league until 1992, normally I wouldn't make this point but as the connection wont accept 'multiple European cup winners' I felt it was worth pointing out the distinction. (2 months ago)

YourFriend @ #13004: A pleasant grid, and not too hard. One thing: try to be more lenient with the free answers. The quadratic/scatter/bar/line should accept answers like 'plot' and 'chart'. (2 months ago)

Tbone @ #12979: Very fun grid. Easy to spot other links once you have one, but I like how random the things seem in each group e.g. don't literally mean the same as the link. (2 months ago)

Tbone @ #12978: Disappointed some of the answers don't make sense e.g. H isn't a vowel. (2 months ago)

Henry @ #12225: Too easy! Sorry! (2 months ago)

Curious cat @ #12978: Don’t think they are in the wrong groups, nellington, as Omaha is a city in Nebraska not a state. Small mistake but didn’t affect my enjoyment of this grid - I got the states group first but obviously didn’t get the stated connection!! I could see the channel group but couldn’t get the right combination and I couldn’t see past Ellen Page for Juno!! (2 months ago)

Wiz @ #12954: That is very naughty Jim!😄 (2 months ago)

Jim @ #12954: However, it should accept semordnilaps because that's the term for words that spell something else backwards. (2 months ago)

Jim @ #12786: Fun idea with nicely chosen overlaps. (2 months ago)

Jezebel @ #12946: Thank you toes, toast and Sid for the positive comments:) JamesD: Thanks for the detailed critique and your kind words about the grid. I don’t think it’s ever wise to use oneself as a yardstick for anything subjective. In the case of PuzzGrid, one person’s esoterica is almost certainly another’s general knowledge. And I’m pleased to have broadened your knowledge of Scouts and spiders; you never know when one or both might come in handy. (2 months ago)

Hubby @ #12954: Great grid - Caz231231, palindromes have to read the same backwards and forwards e.g. kayak. JeSuis is right not to accept it. (2 months ago)

Caz231231 @ #12945: I didn't get the "Los Angeles" group but very enjoyable none the less! (2 months ago)

Caz231231 @ #12954: For the Red Rum column, I answered "palindromes". This is exactly the same as typing "words that spell something else backwards" but my answer wasn't accepted. (2 months ago)

Jayarr @ #12950: "general knowledge" noun. knowledge of a broad range of facts about various subjects (2 months ago)

JamesD @ #12950: I'm sad I wasted three minutes of my life on this. Former West Ham United Managers is not a category of general knowledge. Less still when you hide the names at random in other words. What's your game plan here? (2 months, 1 week ago)

rabbit @ #12948: The crossovers with the Ankara group and the other groups are very clever! (2 months, 1 week ago)

JamesD @ #12946: Classic grid, loads of overlap between all the categories rather than the easier plain red herring approach. I know that's a challenge, so well done. My only other comment would be that you've picked a few answers that are more obscure than you need to. I wasn't familiar with mouse spiders or invisible spiders - I'm guessing in the former case because they live in Australia, a long way from me, and in the latter because they're invisible. I'd also never heard of Wolf Scouts, and they seem to be just a thing in the American Cubs. I love the ideas behind this grid, and your execution is brilliant. Maybe my knowledge just isn't general enough to appreciate your work ;-) (2 months, 1 week ago)

JamesD @ #12945: Doesn't accept "Los Angeles" for the LA group. Otherwise, a very nicely balanced grid, not too hard, plenty of red herrings but nothing too arcane. Great work! (2 months, 1 week ago)

Jezebel @ #12943: Very neat grid, thank you. Particularly liked the ‘Cocker’ line. And definitely agree with curious cat... (2 months, 1 week ago)

Curious cat @ #12943: Delicious with cheese (2 months, 1 week ago)

Curious cat @ #12937: Appreciate the feedback James and, yes, I love my films so take your point that maybe not everyone is aware of Twelve which I maintain is better than its reviews although not a patch on the original book! (2 months, 1 week ago)

JamesD @ #12936: Fiendish stuff. Great ideas behind this, but to my mind at least you're asking a little too much. Take the "Autumn" line, for instance. French, fine. Spanish, fine (although you need the ñ, really). German I didn't know, but that's on me; I don't think it's unfair to expect people to speak basic German. And then Scots Gaelic?? You require knowledge of a language spoken by only 1% of people in Scotland? Harsh. Don't worry gridaddict, you're perfectly capable of making beautiful and elegant grids that are hard enough without going so obscure. (2 months, 1 week ago)

JamesD @ #12937: In my view, this grid falls into a well-defined category that we see a lot of here, and in that sense it's a pretty good example. However, I feel the whole concept misses the point. First of all - and this is really just a minor quibble - the accuracy is not absolute. In general, the harder you make your grids the more precise you have to be in making the answers fit perfectly, and for example, X and Y are the mammalian sex chromosomes. That's not quite the same thing as gender, as some women are X, XXX, or even XY. I'd see that as a fine clue with "Mammalian Female" or similar, but you're not spot on here. I know the distinction is very minor, but in your position as quizmaster you need to be more than just 99% correct. (I've made this mistake several times.) However, my second point is really the main issue: this knowledge is too abstruse. Fully seven out of the sixteen clues meant nothing to me even after seeing the answers. A quick google cut that to six (I was aware of the movie 21, but the title had slipped my mind), but that's still way too vague. In my vision of a good grid, people who miss a group AND then miss the connection are at least kicking themselves when they see the answer. Or just maybe, at an extreme, interested to have learned or been shown something new. Here you have a very easy Facebook group - nothing wrong with that - and then the wheels fall off. When the three minutes had ticked down and I saw the answers, my response was more "Huh" than the ideal "Ah!" of enlightenment. The clues are based on things I never knew, and now that you tell me I don't take any interest in learning them. "There was a film called Twelve, nobody really liked it and it sank without trace." Never knew that. Never really wanted to know it either. Look at even the hardest walls the professionals put up on Only Connect - they may be fiendish in other ways, but not simply by calling on such obscure facts. Perhaps you underestimate - or I overestimate - quite how special-interest this information is. In particular, are you a major cinephile? You have a lot of film clues in here that I found rather taxing. One trick you can use is to choose a name to post your puzzle under, so as to give users a clue as to the content. In any case, please don't take my post as a deliberate attack on your grid. There are different definitions of what constitutes a good one, and I'm only writing this with respect to my thoughts, and because you asked for comments. Keep on gridding! (2 months, 1 week ago)

Wiz @ #12936: Dispute the Islamabad line definition! (2 months, 1 week ago)

toast @ #12925: Roth is indeed the accepted British pronunciation, though Americans pronounce it as rath which is the likely cause of the uncertainty. (2 months, 1 week ago)

4by4 @ #12937: Agree with Toast's comments. Also your inclusion of at least 3 answers that could cross over into another line is a good feature. It might be better not to have 2 lines covering the same subject matter unless it is a specialist themed grid. (2 months, 1 week ago)

E.L. Wisty @ #12937: Echo all of Toast's comments. Good stuff. (2 months, 1 week ago)

toast @ #12937: Doubt you need much advice. The twenty line was clever . In part the grid was too special interest for my general knowledge but that's not really a fault - you will never please everyone. However a lot of gridders object to good answers being marked wrong. Be sure to accept for example movies as well as films. And keep up the good explanations. (2 months, 1 week ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12835: True, however I never stated that it was a word. Bernard and Romeo are technically names as is Rigamortis (Kendrick Lamar song) So I believe the connection is still valid. Half the answers in this grid wont be found in the dictionary (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Naomi @ #12835: I think it's "rigor mortis"... "Riga"mortis is not a word. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

toast @ #12833: There is an elegance in the simple lines of this grid that belies the notion that a man who has his fortnightly beer allowance twice a week is incapable of recognising beauty. Personally I have long held that sticking to the recommended limit of twenty-one units a day is the foundation of a cultivated taste. Cheers! (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

rabbit @ #12801: Argh, I've been sitting on a grid with two of these groups and the same false group for ages! Nice to see the same idea done well. I think the 2^6 clue is a bit mean, since it requires an extra step of logic which none of its groupmates do. (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

squareeyes @ #12781: Mr Limerick ... yes you're right, thanks for pointing this out, I see that if you had, e.g. an American accent, the definitions would make no sense. Do you know if there is any way of editing the definitions once you've posted the grid? (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

StampIron @ #12782: Does anyone know a way, other than writing a continuous line, to make the answer descriptions single-spaced? (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

MrLimerick @ #12781: In comparing the members of one group you state that they ‘rhyme’ with ‘or’. They do not. I think it would be correct to say that the vowel sounds are the same. Comparing another group to ‘ow’ would be correct if it was ‘ow’ as in ‘how’ but not ‘ow’ as in ‘slow’ ... that would match the group you have rhyming with ‘oh’. (2 months, 3 weeks ago)

StampIron @ #12758: Yeah... I already had Taps and Endless Love and I saw those were his first two movies so I went with the first four. I probably should have replaced 'Losin' It' with a better-known movie. There's a tendency in constructing I think to lean towards "make it harder" when often the opposite is better.

Jim @ #12639: I don't think this one works because too many of these fit multiple numbers in the 7-8-9 range, so there are multiple equally valid solutions. The game eight-ball is at least as popular as nine-ball, and there's also the fortune-telling Eight Ball; 7, 8, and 9 irons are all golf clubs in the standard set; the Chicago Seven quite famously began as the Chicago Eight; I'd never heard of a straight-eight engine, but in researching it I found the Wikipedia article for the straight-seven engine; and there are probably others that could be swapped too.

NL YCN N CT @ #12618: Most enjoyable (as to be expected from your fine self)... Solved the grid with time to spare but just could not for the life of me see the final connection (wankle group) so only 7/10 for me... However, having not managed to fully eschew all the traits (pedantry, hubris, conceit & oft contempt!) I displayed during my first tentative steps into the world of puzzgrid comments, I'd have to say "wankle" isn't actually a word, at least not I'm my copy of the OED!... Oh, and I'd come so far since those days ;) Hope all's well and keep up the good work... P.S. Enjoy the Ashes, could be closer than expected on late night's evidence (here's hoping!)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12678: Apart from 'Numbers appearing in Sporting team names', and just maybe 'highest scoring in specific sports' (although that is stretching it a bit!) The other two are not really connections, they are a collection of pub quiz trivia answers that have been lumped together. For instance, why those particular sports for the team sizes, there is no link between them other than they are sports. You could say Lets put 6 in that category as the number of players in an ICE HOCKEY team, then place 5 in the scores row for the number of points for a try in rugby union. So you could also argue that there is not a unique solution also. I also agree with what toeswest has stated regarding the scoring systems connection. Apart from all of that......decent grid!

toeswest @ #12678: The highest 'single' score in darts is 60 (triple 20), in snooker is 7 (black ball) and in cricket is 7 (6 off a no-ball). If you argue the 147 is correct, then it too is incorrect: 155. To score 155, a foul stroke must be committed by an opponent, which leaves the non-offender snookered on all 15 reds. By nominating a colour as an ‘extra red’, then taking a subsequent black .... etc. I doubt if anyone on this earth could figure group #4! (3 months ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12652: Pretty sure that AXE and LYNX are in fact the same brand, just in the UK we call it LYNX, but in North America and much of Europe they are labelled AXE.

TooCleverByHalf @ #12657: if either the UNDER or SPARE connection was a different type of connection, then this would be up there with the very best grids. As it stands, its merely excellent! (3 months ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12656: unfortunately you have fallen into the trap of creating too many red herrings from just two groups, meaning some of the answers in those groups are interchangeable. This makes for multiple correct solutions for the grid. For example you can swap HOMO with MONO, creating monoPHONE and homoPHOBIA. Or PHOTO and MEGA creating photoPHONE and megaPHOBIA, or indeed swap TECHNO with MICRO creating technoPHONE and microPHOBIA, or even move HYDRO down to the phone row to make HYDROPHONE, and swap it with any of the others! I think that makes for around 13 correct combinations of answers. apart from that..... (3 months ago)

Fridge @ #12602: Excellent idea, and I love my Greek history. The problem is there are so many combinations that work together. If you use red herrings, you can only have up to two, if you have three or more for each group, you can form other groups that also work. So there is no unique solution. So had to mark it down :( (3 months, 1 week ago)

MissMinx @ #12586: Super grid, got them all but never got connections....good crossovers (3 months, 1 week ago)

Fridge @ #12595: Good groups, a few herrings. Overall I like the puzzle. However your keywords are AWFUL. It wouldn't accept 'Eric' as the group of first names, it wouldn't accept 'Smart', 'Knowledge' or 'Discretion' for the wise group (typo as well), and the worst is the comedy duos. It wouldn't accept 'Comedy' or 'Duos'. So good wall but I had to give very low quality as it wouldn't accept any correct connections. (3 months, 1 week ago)

4by4 @ #12593: It might be better to have the missing word always at the start or always at the end in the same set. Also it might be better to add a bit of variety rather than have all prefixes and suffixes or all the same theme i.e. films as in some of your other grids. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Krista @ #7270: Yeah-I find the range of acceptable answers for the sets is a problem in most of the gridsI In one it accepted only writers and in this only authors for egs-must be a way to overcome that,surely? Just the same orchestra should do-they are all orchestral instruments after all. (3 months, 1 week ago)

Krista @ #7580: You just need a red herring or two and maybe don`t write ALL of a category backwards and none of the others;I guessed the footballers just because they were the only ones backward spelled-I don`t really know any of them except Wayne Rooney. Keep at it :-) (3 months, 1 week ago)

John @ #12479: So many other options for hunt. Also why isn't 'bird' accepted for the garden bird category, harsh. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jim @ #12473: Because of the personal content and because it's not published as a general-interest quiz, I gather it's part of a private puzzle hunt with a murder-mystery theme. You might have noticed the non-Puzzgrid-related clue in one of the explanations, and that same clue has appeared in all three grids by this user. (The setter is probably trying to make a clean one without any outside comments, but the setter probably doesn't realize his/her own comment draws everyone else's attention via the comments page. As a courtesy, I'd suggest we refrain from commenting on this user's puzzles that aren't publicly posted.) (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #12470: I got incorrect for synonyms for waste so just put synonyms for the next group and got incorrect. Then I put games for another group instead of popular boardgames so got 3 wrong out of 4 - a bit harsh methinks. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Queen @ #12469: Excellent grid (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Nellington @ #12470: Not a bad grid, but would you mind if I offer a little constructive criticism? If 4 items are grouped because they're synonyms, I think it's a good idea to put in as many possible synonyms as you can think of in the answer box. For example, for the group 'Trash', 'Refuse', 'Garbage', and 'Rubbish' I put as the answer "Synonyms for litter" and this was marked as incorrect, but the answer given was "Synonyms for garbage". My guess is that "litter" wasn't one of the key words you put in the answer box. I get that it's impossible to anticipate all the possible correct answers 100% of the time, but when it comes to groups of synonyms I think the more relevant key words you put in the answer box the better the odds for solvers. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12473: I think it's a kind of weak joke? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Pedant @ #12478: A grid should only have one correct solution (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Pedant @ #12478: This grid has so many viable solutions that it simply doesn't work. As already pointed out you can swap hp with ibm, or even LG, you can swap samsung with Sony or even canon, you can swap Philips or toshiba with samsung. (Some of these companies make an awful lot of different products, especially Samsung and Philips. You can swap apple with a few of the others as well etc etc..... (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

toast @ #12447: Pretty good thanks. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jim @ #12465: John, they're various elements from the TV series. It was set in a place known only as The Village, the antagonist/gaoler was known only as No. 2, and Rover was a giant white bubble that bounced around to keep the prisoners in check. The only item I wasn't keen on was Resigned, because it wasn't a person/place/thing and appeared only in the opening sequence; the protagonist resigns his job, and his file is placed in a drawer marked Resigned. That quibble aside, I thought The Prisoner was a fun idea for a grid line, so I enjoyed seeing it here. (I wish the series were available on Netflix since I'd love to watch it again.) (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

HINT @ #12471: HOVER OVER THE QUESTION MARKS AND YOU MIGHT FIND SOME USEFUL INFORMATION (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Amanda S @ #12470: Spurn not sprun (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

John @ #12440: Brilliant grid, knew the categories but couldn't pick the right ones in time! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

John @ #12454: Didn't accept 'Emoji'? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

John @ #12457: typed 'grad', wrong. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

John @ #12465: I don't understand the prisoner link? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #12456: Wouldn't accept William... (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #12457: Wouldn't accept ......grad (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Smudge @ #12281: 6:45: 2/1 (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Smudge @ #12278: Proper wall (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12454: Peekay,Google,it's there and complicated... (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Peekay @ #12400: Last group was impssible.....what kids? whose kids? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Chris Brook @ #2297: Excellent (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Peekay @ #12454: Lop stick?????? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Calum @ #9983: I tried Ben Dover about 5 times. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

AJ @ #12421: As others have said, needs to be square root of -1. Otherwise great quiz. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Nellington @ #12463: Nice grid. The elements group, in particular, was very clever. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mike @ #12465: Good except that I hate The Prisoner links (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Zbj @ #12335: Nice one. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

anthony @ #12450: good (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Zbj @ #12445: Brilliant. Just got it with less than 10 seconds left and feel very good about myself :) (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #12463: I liked this grid a lot, though I'm not quite sure affable totally fits in with the rest in its category. A smashing grid otherwise, though! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

JeSuis @ #12450: Good stuff! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

JJLeDJ @ #4271: Needs better explanations (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jezebel @ #12460: Nice toughie, thank you. I got too hung up on film directors...which is exactly what you wanted! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12446: Goodness me,playing in those would indeed be a challenge! High tops,didn't know that.thankyou! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Robbo @ #12460: Very good, only worked out half of it. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

JustWhy @ #12457: First 'Shatter' and now 'Chuckle' I can't tell if you are deliberately messing with people but if not there is a great new website you may find handy www.google.com (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

patch @ #12451: Nice red herrings. My cultural knowledge let me down but still enjoyed it. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

patch @ #12454: Grid OK but answer acceptance not great. My correct, one-word answer for the Grinning face group was not accepted, but my incorrect (or rather, too general) answer for the Ghostbusters group was accepted. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jim @ #12446: Ah, thanks. That is, literally and figuratively, more pedestrian than what I'd guessed. In the US we called those high-tops, whereas we use boots to refer to the thick, heavy footwear worn by hikers and construction workers, for example. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12460: Lovely grid,varied and fun! I enjoyed seeing Ginger Baker ...he was extraordinary! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12457: Maybe Miss Slink, that doesn't matter? Enjoyed it, didn't complete it! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12446: Jim, I don't think there's anything subtle about it. Baseball boots were popular in the 60s or 70s...just like sneakers but high over ankles. I always thought they actually had something to do with baseball. What were they called in the USI wonder? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #12440: I've noticed this too, JeSuis - there's a contact email address on the "about" page, maybe they'll be able to shed some light? Nice grid, by the way. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #12451: I liked this, though if I'm allowed to be a little pedantic, shouldn't it be Davis Jr? I guess that would make it a lot more obvious, though... (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

H&eM @ #12450: JeSuis - Boom! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jim @ #12446: Wiz, I've never heard of playing baseball in boots either, but given the lack of jumping, that would seem slightly more feasible than basketball. At this point I suspect I'm missing some British joke or cultural reference, but this presumably doesn't refer to Boots the chemist or the storage boots of motor vehicles, and that exhausts my knowledge of UK-specific boots. Google, as usual, was no help at all. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Robbo @ #12456: Surely should be Shatner. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #12454: Nice, though surely it should be written AC/DC? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #12457: Chuckle should indeed be Chuckie. Also, aren't Stalingrad and Volgograd the same place, just having used each name at different points in history? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

PERNICKERTY @ #12456: Damn, that's two on the trot I've failed! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Nellington @ #12457: Not a bad grid, but I think Chuckle should be Chuckie. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

TooClever @ #12455: I agree with 4by4. Also it's not a unique solution. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you could swap Ukraine and Moldova and still retain a valid solution (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

4by4 @ #12455: A potentially decent grid is a bit let down by the Smith line - Shatter should be Shatner? of Orange? and if it is the big film star Smith his name is Willard (but there is another older and probably less well known Smith). (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Hotspur62 @ #12447: Didn't recognise the answers Add an a to make girls names or The four Gospels! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

JeSuis @ #12440: As an aside, does anyone know why newly submitted grids are being removed? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

JeSuis @ #12440: Bonehead; not sure what you mean, but "flu" is an acceptable answer? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12446: But not baseball ,Jim? (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jim @ #12446: It would seem rather difficult to play basketball while wearing boots. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #12445: No worries, i suspect this happens a lot... (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

JJLeDJ @ #9737: Once again we have an answer based on a ridiculous English pronunciation... This time of the word Bark - In Scotland we pronounce the R much like they do in the rest of the world outside the home counties (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12445: just looked at grid 6505 Mister tom. There is a similarity, indeed 2 of the same connections. I assure you it is by coincidence rather than plagiarism though. I almost used Nymph as a clue too! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #12445: Very nice! I enjoyed learning the proper name for a baby oyster. A small note: Sara could equally be Carl. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #12423: Ironically, given the comments (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #12423: Could have done with more scope for confusion (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #12445: A tribute to #6505? :-) very nice individual clue choices (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #5389: One of puzzgrids finest! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

tonyb leeds @ #5389: got 6/10 delighted. very very tough. i would need to be 200 to solve the statesman link (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

JGD @ #12400: No way of knowing some of the answers as they relate to personal connections (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Nellington @ #12447: Nice grid, but didn't accept gospel writers as an answer. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

bonehead @ #12440: surely flu would do, please change (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

anthony @ #12434: not too difficult (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

anthony @ #12446: ok nice grid (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

E.C. Jet @ #12443: Tricky and well constructed. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Tim @ #1396: Nice wall. Some good red herrings. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jezebel @ #12445: Nice one. Baby oysters were my undoing... (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Tim @ #12446: Nice grid. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Curtis is Rubbish @ #4365: rubbish hated it so much (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

4by4 @ #12381: Thanks for the comments. Z - the users of the Newcastle-upon-Tyne metro transport system will often agree with you! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12445: For the feedback (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12445: Thanks (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Colm @ #566: I enjoyed this one; good & frustrating :) (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

anthony @ #11973: your grid made me think well done (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

4by4 @ #12445: Well constructed and a good mix of answers. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12445: Nice one,bit Too Clever for me in parts! (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

puzzGrid @ #12423: :) (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12423: That made me laugh:) (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12423: Oooooh yeah.... ive had a bit of a think, can you change my username to Wiz. only joking! to be honest, I quite like TooCleverByHalf. for the time being maybe we could leave it as that. thanks for the offer (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

puzzGrid @ #12423: Thanks TooClever, if you would like a name of your own choosing let me know and I'll change it. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12423: It was a bit infuriating, but thanks for contrition...enjoy puzzgrid,it is indeed a great site. (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12423: As the Wiz impersonator, I would like to apologise to firstly Wiz, it was a bit of fun that I probably took a bit too far, and secondly to PuzzGrid, its a great site, very entertaining, needless to say a donation to site maintenance is due by way of recompense. Happy gridding everyone (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12252: lol (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

TooCleverByHalf @ #12252: no (3 months, 2 weeks ago)

None of the below @ #12252: Are you all the same person? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Sid Kneebridge @ #12441: Very good grid, I could see the US link, but I took to long to sort it and ran out of time. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

toast @ #12441: Good grid. Don't worry about the classification as the setter only chooses the initial setting.That can then be changed by the solvers. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

chris @ #12440: nice simple grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12441: Very nice and dare I say topical! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jezebel @ #12441: Thank you. Glad you liked it. I thought I’d marked it as ‘difficult’ but it’s showing as ‘medium’. I’m a newbie at this, so apologies if anyone is misled. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

uncstebah @ #12441: An excellent, topical grid. Didn't solve it but the solution brought a smile, especially the Macbeth group. Really enjoyed this one. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Marion Haste @ #12440: Clever gridding. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

anthony @ #12437: well done ,good variety of red herrings (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

toast @ #12440: Nice accessible grid. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

toast @ #12437: Good variety and plenty of red herrings (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Gladys Allover @ #12434: I enjoyed it. Not too difficult, but interesting. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Grace Quirell @ #12436: Tough, but good fun. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jezebel @ #12437: Nice spooky one, thank you👻 (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JJLeDJ @ #1060: This grid needs a classification below that of easy! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JJLeDJ @ #11617: It accepts any answer (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Sonia Shoes @ #12437: Great grid, lovely stuff. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JJLeDJ @ #11636: (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12437: Nice one! Good for Halloween too! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Ann Ominous @ #10029: Not bad (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Ann Ominous @ #10048: Never heard of Fiona and Jazz apple (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Ann Ominous @ #10063: Couldn’t get a set (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Colm @ #1818: Really enjoyed this one! Well done (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Badge @ #12429: Bit tough on acceptable answers, wouldn't accept Roger or 5 (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

CellBlock @ #12428: Didn't get any groups, but was able to get the connections after it resolved. Pretty interesting puzzle. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #1653: Yep! It means something valuable found after effort I have discovered.new to me too. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Big boy @ #1653: Pay dirt? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

4by4 @ #12434: Toast is correct. The solution has to be unique. This is not unique as Toast describes. It should not discourage anyone from creating a grid but can be a learning point for creating any future grids. Everyone can be fallible - it is difficult to get everything spot on. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Angry person @ #12292: I put quadrilatirals for the 2d shape one and it said it was incorrect (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

RickRoll @ #7182: Pile (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Frantic @ #12421: Was marked wrong for 24 for some reason. Good variety. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Frantic @ #12423: good variety. Hard if you don't know Adele albums. Liked the Fifty category. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Frantic @ #12425: Good variety. Got two out of four but should have got the others - they were good sets. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Frantic @ #12429: Not in my comfort zonen - don't know any guitar makes or some of the Rogers! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

toast @ #12434: Bob this has been discussed before. Crossovers are great but only one solution that covers the grid is permissible. On this grid there are three equally valid solutions but two of them are marked incorrect. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Frantic @ #12430: Liked it. Some good clues to hang on to. Good variety. Did better this time (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Frantic @ #12431: Too much the same sort of thing. Sour grapes because I scored zero! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Peekay @ #10088: Berlin is by far the most populous city in Germany, therefore making the clue useless (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Bobretd @ #12434: Toast that is the whole idea that there are 'crossover' answers for the different groups of 4 (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #12434: Good for those who dig their UK geography, but maybe one to miss for those whom the subject is a massive blind spot. I personally prefer my grids to cover a variety of topics, but I'm aware there are plenty of people who feel differently. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

toast @ #12434: Thanks but I think either Tyne or Humber could be swapped with Thames so there is not a unique solution. Good try though. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Colm @ #12421: -1 is not i; liked the last group - kicking myself that I missed it (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

RickRoll @ #12433: No real decoys or red herrings here; the bashful one was too easy, considering the other options. I liked the caretaker England managers one, though. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

JJLeDJ @ #4648: Not how you spell pidgin in this case (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Irene @ #12425: I put palindrome for 3 and was marked wrong because I didn't put it in plural (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Robbo @ #12425: A bit too easy. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

RickRoll @ #12432: A good effort. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

E. Stenders @ #12432: Very enjoyable grid. Well done. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

toast @ #12432: I was off home ground with most of the groups but enjoyed having a go. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

knife @ #12432: Nice stuff, I particularly liked the UK/US one (and was annoyed that I didn't suss it!) (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #12430: Easy-breezy, but fun. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #12432: Come on guys, leave me some feedback. Stroke/destroy my ego as you see fit! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

roger @ #12408: Poor quality due to the lack of thought you have put into the acceptable answers. Girls names are all ridiculously spelt. Synonyms for litter not accepted. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

roger @ #12418: poor words accepted. other than that decent attempt. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Ben Feeka @ #12430: Good fun. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

roger @ #12429: why not accept roger? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12428: I had a bit of fun with it.just got two connections . (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PERNICKERTY @ #12428: Sorry Jim, no it wasn't. If you worked it out you must have been sat next to compiler. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

j @ #12430: good (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Aardvark @ #12110: Cheese before AND after is misleading and unfair - should be either or. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12431: It's pretty similar! I haven't! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

E.L. Wisty @ #12431: Not entirely the same; but you must have a good memory. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12431: This is like an earlier grid of yours? Any reason?enjoyed it! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

PaulyT @ #12416: Good, and had me going! I think the Action set can also all start Re- (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12429: Of course course you're right pedant. But I think my comment still stands.i did mean parrot btw. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Big Boy @ #1095: Some good cross overs - though they were fairly obvious - did it in less than a minute. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12423: Oh just stop it,boring! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Big Boy @ #184: Enjoyed this one - liked the cross overs. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

RickRoll @ #7704: bad. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12429: Although technically you are right,one of them is not usually referred to as animal. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jim Karner @ #12425: Hey, what about us five year olds? (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Elaine Closure @ #12429: Fun grid, but would not accept animals. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12423: It was! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12396: I see, Jim ,sorry I got you wrong! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jim @ #12428: Nicely constructed. That was fun to puzzle out, and quite reasonable with a bit of thought. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jim @ #12420: It's funny how often I rule out the correct answer. "Well, it can't be twin because there's no such thing as twin town or twin Atlantic." (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jim @ #12396: Right, wiz, I was referring to the author of the book (but trying to avoid mentioning Herge or Tintin), not the grid-setter. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #12418: Wouldn't accept just city (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12420: Not me!good attempt.... (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #12429: Would not accept "Roger..." (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12423: That wasn't me! I liked the grid too! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

E.C. Jet @ #12423: I thought it was fine. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Ragman @ #12420: Capricorn is a goat, not a centaur.... (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Tolkein @ #14: I introduced the plural 'dwarves' in the hobbit. Until then, and therefore in Snow White, the only plural option was 'dwarfs' (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Nick H @ #12421: unfortunately, the number -1 is NOT known as/abbreviated to 'i'. i is the SQUARE ROOT of -1, hence an 'impossible number', (i for impossible!). Other than that, nice grid (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Simon Gould @ #12371: Really good (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Simon Gould @ #1396: Not very good. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jezebel @ #12410: Enjoyed this, thank you. I ended up with the right groups for the wrong reasons but managed to get my brain in gear eventually... (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12411: Good grid,hard in parts.china White is a film.a band,a nightclub,a drug,and a type of clay... (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Nick H @ #12411: Kirin Cup? I had to google it, it is a soccer cup in Japan! not too sure about 'China White' either (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Ann Ominous @ #12392: I answered aristocracy instead of nobility. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Ann Ominous @ #10678: Should have got this. Not bad. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Hercules @ #12371: Hercules = demigod, 1 star (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Johnny who? @ #12375: The truth always does (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wrong @ #12392: D'oh, I wrote 'title' not 'titles' so lost 3 points! (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wrong @ #12403: First words in titles... need to be really famous titles for that to be a serious group, otherwise you can basically just throw any random selection of words together. Also, I loved Captain Scarlet, doesn't stop a viable correct answer to that group being 'colours' though. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wrong @ #12408: The fact that they're capitals and European capitals is a group, niche spellings of names within them is not. Would have been a fine grid apart from that failure from the setter. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

george @ #12408: capitals containing girl's names (if you misspell/corrupt them).sorry but not good at all. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

george @ #12409: would not accept hair styles. otherwise,o.k. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

chris @ #12397: excellent balance of difficulty. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Jim @ #12396: "...in the Land of the Soviets": it's as if the person behind that group thought the name "Soviet Union" was copyrighted. (3 months, 3 weeks ago)

Brother Andio @ #10486: Dear Grid Setter, Whilst I very much enjoyed your grid, I was left somewhat heartbroken by being marked as incorrect for the link I provided For the black box, koala bear set. These were all things that are not what they actually say they are. I can't remember how I phrased my answer but it was deemed to be incorrect. As I have clearly shown that I put exactly the right answer (TO THE LETTER!) imagine my horror in being told I was wrong. I am never wrong. Now I am heartbroken (3 months, 4 weeks ago)

I'm in the United States, and Google informed me of what a pick 'n' mix is (our closest equivalent is "penny candy," an assortment of jars of different candies, where each piece costs the same amount, historically a penny but now probably a nickel). However, Google wasn't helping with the individual items; dolphins and shrimp don't seem to have swum across the Atlantic. We do have fudge, thank goodness, though I've never seen it in a penny candy display. (4 months ago)

Jim @ #12277: Since the previous comments were unhelpful, I'll add a detailed one. Aside from the Westminster group, I don't think this grid worked: 1. The grass group feels arbitrary because "wet grass" and "long grass" aren't special phrases, nor is grass necessarily long or wet. 2. There's no parallelism in the saint group. Laurent and Teresa are names of saints (as is nearly any common name used by Christians), Leslie Charteris created Simon "the Saint" Templar, and Moore doesn't have any connection that I can find. 3. If this grid had any red herrings between groups, I'm not seeing them. 4. I can't view the answer to the Dombey group because the software won't let me enter an answer, but if it's "and Son(s)" as suggested by Dombey and Mumford, then the other two are so obscure that Googling them doesn't yield anything notable. (4 months ago)

Wiz @ #12275: Yes they are all candies shrimp ,ring and dolphin shaped. (4 months ago)

Jim @ #12275: I'd never heard of a pick 'n' mix, and even after repeated Googling, I don't understand the items in that group. Are dolphins and shrimp slang terms for candy in the UK, or maybe brand names of candy? Do rings refer generically to ring-shaped candies, like Life Savers in the United States, or something else entirely (like calamari rings, in light of dolphins and shrimp)? On a separate note, I liked the fish category but was puzzled by the explanation "Native fish." Native to someplace in particular? (4 months ago)

Every quizzer, crossword buff, or geography buff knows Niue, so I'm surprised people are calling it obscure. I'm even more surprised by the back-and-forth over whether Niue is a country: the theme is "Places=2i," not "Countries=2i," so who cares whether it's a country? No one can deny that it's a place.

Blues @ #12245: Smh, Johnny Truth (Wiz)... Apology first to Smh if you thought I was flippant, that wasn't the intention although in hindsight it looks it. Secondly I didn't post the reply to you both after your excellent dissertations on national identity somebody obviously did it on my behalf. Now here's my two cents worth... Take a moment to consider what I tried to do to form this particular grid. Each row had three "three letter" words and a clue. The three letter words in each row were originally "four letter" words with an identical letter removed which also had to occupy the same position in each of the original words in its own row but in a different position to all the other rows. The three letter words that were left also had to make sense rather than be just a collection of letters (where possible). This restricted things a little. When it came to "countries" that were 4 letters long, with the second letter "i" my scope was very limited. This was why Niue appeared. As to whether Niue is a bona-fida country then this is open to debate but I offer the following:- I listed countries with 4 letters and Niue popped up all over the place. I then checked it with Wikipedia (not fool proof I know) but the opening statement is:- " Niue is an island country" I also saw them play rugby against the Cook Islands... So logic told me, for the sake of this quiz, that Niue passed most tests (although apparently not the UN's) I did not ask for a UN ratified country or an independent nation or sovereign state, simply a country. This begs the question how were countries classified pre October 24th 1945? or even before the 10th January 1920? when we had neither the UN or its forerunner "the League of Nations." (I don't know) As to Wales or Scotland or Ireland not being countries... 1. Point at a map of the Island or Ireland and ask any schoolchild what two countries make up the island and they will tell you Eire (or the republic) and N.I. 2. Walk into any pub in Glasgow and ask them what nationality they are or what country they live in.... Also wasn't James king of both countries? 3. Every time I cross the Severn bridge driving west out of England I pass a sign "Welcome to Wales" on the border of the two countries. Undoubtedly your information is irrefutable but sometimes we have to bow to common consciousness. Nevertheless thank you for taking the time to reply. (Ooops nearly forgot Smh, the reason I asked you if you finished the grid was simply out of curiosity, I could not imagine you getting so enraged had you waltzed through it. It is quite a strange grid because I have retried it since and struggled and I thought I knew the answers... (I knew Niue anyway.) Beer now. (4 months ago)

Jim @ #12205: The Melba group was nice, but the Ever and Never groups weren't very interesting, IMHO. In particular, surely there were more interesting options than Is and In (such as Queens, High, or Green). Also, other than Victoria and Cleopatra being queens (which wasn't close to forming a four-item group), there weren't any crossovers. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Nellington @ #12265: Good grid, but one small gripe. Damien Green, Jeremy Hunt, David Gauke, and Amber Rudd are all Conservative politicians, but when I put in the answer 'Conservative politicians', it was rejected as incorrect. Then I tried again and just tried entering 'politicians' and that came back as incorrect as well. Just for future reference, I think it would be a good idea to put a wider range of linking terms in when submitting the grid. For instance, if I'd done it, I'd have put "Cabinet; minister; ministers; politician; politicians; MP; parliament; Tory; Conservative" and maybe a couple of others. Any one of these would indicate that the solver had the right answer (or had gotten close enough to make no difference). Just a thought, and it's only a minor gripe. Otherwise, another excellent grid :-) (4 months, 1 week ago)

4by4 @ #12245: Took a couple of looks to work out the concept. Once you have that it is quite achieveable with a bit of trial and error to get the obscure answers (it is easier to find one obscure answer in a set than trying to find a set containing all obscure answers requiring a specialist knowledge). I like the concept and applaud the attempt to add a bit of variety. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Johnny truth @ #12245: This is: IT (=1S 2H) (4 months, 1 week ago)

Sally can dance @ #12245: Wow, ridiculously obscure. Shoe horned a couple of those answers in to make up the connections didn't you. And then you let yourself down further, Niue is not a in recognised country and neither is Siam, one could even argue that wire isn't in English so doesn't really match with the others. Not sure I liked using one of the squares as a clue either. In fact I'm bang against this grid. (4 months, 1 week ago)

Nellington @ #12245: I like the gimmick, but I think each group contained at least one answer that was (IMO) too obscure. There can't be that many people who have heard of the Isle of Niue (population 1,624), or know that Roan is a breed of horse. I think the gimmick alone is enough to make the puzzle challenging and if the answers had been a little more mainstream I'd have given it full marks. Still, clever idea. (4 months, 1 week ago)

For instance you could have paired Pike with Wilson, Sponge and Frazer for extra politician... (4 months, 1 week ago)

Clarice @ #2748: Agree with Al (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Bee @ #12197: Fair point about the tea, that was a mistake, but I thought the Velvet Underground song was reasonably well known (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Callipygous @ #32: Very restrictive "answers", and not accurate. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #12191: Didn't accept "Shakespearean female characters" same three words but different order and who is Liam Liam? (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Tom @ #12197: Yes the Sunday group was the one I didn't get, but it works. It's a TV show and a song. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

toast @ #12193: Great stuff but take it a bit easier on us- anagrams and so many red herrings are ok for the seriously clever but the likes of me could easily burst a brain cell that we can't spare. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

bonehead @ #12196: flags schmlags (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12197: No I don't think that fits as well.enjoyed grid. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

bonehead @ #12197: good instead of sunday? (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12167: Indeed it is! (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

SD @ #12197: The answer for "Morning" is not nearly as strong as the rest of the category, and the one for "English" also doesn't fit nearly as well - it's not a phrase anyone English would use. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Rachel @ #1396: good (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

SD @ #2748: Awesome (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

StillFlying @ #12196: Thanks for the feedback. I can see why that wouldn't work. Sorry about that! (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Fitz @ #12192: Sublime is fine I say, and it's a minor typo with Griffin. Didn't get a single group, but thought this was excellent! (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Fitz @ #12196: Yeah I agree. I was left with 6 birds + Lion + Ram. Practically impossible to get the last 2 groups from there. Liked the other 2 groups though. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

gnu @ #12196: Animals found on flags is too difficult, don't see how anyone is supposed to get that from the 4 animals in that group. Birds on the other hand is too wide and general a group. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Blues @ #12167: fantastic place Croatia Wiz. Thank you. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

StillFlying @ #2184: That was fun. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

StillFlying @ #12177: Great grid. It can be tricky to come up with all the ways people might input the links, but the grid was really well thought out and I enjoyed it a lot. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Jn @ #12191: Not sure about the double name. No idea who that is. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

z @ #12188: Either way it's a loose connection. Didn't like the inconsistency in the jacket group either. Your other grid is better. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12189: Might be worth tweaking your answer matching again - colours of cows is very specific. Liked the drunks one. Generally, a little too easy to match the fours and then not always possible to find a unique link between the words. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12188: Not everyone's cup of tea maybe! Technically a homophone is any single word that is part of a homophonic set, so it's right by the dictionary definition. Sorry you didn't enjoy it! (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12191: Didn't accept "Shakespeare characters" - answer matching seems a bit tight! (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

z @ #12188: Homophones was a seriously weak group. I guess what you really mean is 'words that have homophones'. Poor grid. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

4by4 @ #12177: Thanks for the comments - will try to improve links in future (this was first attempt) (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

BigMacAndGs @ #12183: Well spotted Pedant, I clearly had the Stephensons on the mind... (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12144: Cunning "second movies" - nice! Thought the "halves of double acts" was a little tenuous... (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12151: I thought Christmas box was a little obscure, but the watch parts was a good group. So close to getting 10! (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12153: Nice one! (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12154: I'm with Nellington on this one. One real niche per grid is ok, but I think this was a little too esoteric. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12159: Good fun, and nicely made (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12167: Great grid! Hope you enjoyed your holiday! (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12171: Loved it. Hard but doable! (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12177: Agree descriptions too narrow bit great grid (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Al @ #12179: Needed a starting point: all too obscure to get started IMHO (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

DF @ #12183: Excellently made, challenging without being obtuse. And no, I'm not just being smug that I actually got 10/10 for a change :P (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Blues @ #12167: Jim, I wonder if the Silver Surfer himself (latterly of Fantastic Four fame) will survive to become an actual Silver surfer ( admittedly of lesser heroic qualities.) I guess his luck would need to hold out along with the guy who draws him. Anyway thank you all I am encouraged by your kindly remarks. Toast, if anyone could bring the boat home I knew it would be you. Cheers. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

E.L. Wisty @ #12172: Apologies- having looked at this again, I am wrong and I agree with LN and Fitz. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Fitz @ #12172: Think I'm with LN. If you're down to the last 8 and you can identify 2 logical groups, it should be safe to assume that you're right. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

RickRoll @ #7011: Chanel? (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Nellington @ #12019: Very good, but you should be able to have 'gems' for the Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, Amethyst set. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

Nellington @ #12021: I think the monarchs one was way too obscure. Georgia from King George, and Louisiana after King Louis of France is easy enough, but Virginia from Elizabeth I a.k.a. The Virgin Queen? Nah, mate. Too much of a stretch. Same with Carolina, which takes it's name from the Latin derivation of Charles, Carolus. Other than that, a fun grid with lots of clever misdirection. (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

DF @ #12168: Put coins in for the... well, coins... but that just stonewalled me. Didn't get the Uncles (Would only recognise 1/4 any), so eh. Definitely wouldn't file this as easy, what with the uncles and the 6 Coins / 6 Backs - also there's very much an exchangeable set (Nickleback - Quarterback, both file nicely under US Coins) (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

StillFlying @ #12164: Thank you, everyone! Ray, 'brain' is an expression used in the north of England and means punch someone in the head. It was a common threat in the playground when I was growing up (which probably says more about my school than it does our language!) (4 months, 2 weeks ago)

DF @ #12141: Given the relative simplicity of the board, seems weird to suddenly use "Seasaw", which is either an american folk band... or forgetting that it's "Seesaw", with just t'one a, and two e's. Might advise "Port" as an alternative for that one? My 2c, anyway. (4 months, 3 weeks ago)

toast @ #12121: I like this a lot but it is also asking a lot of the solver and as you could swap Peter with Paul ( McGann) there is not a unique answer - this is of course subject to a check by Pedant. Nevertheless an enjoyable grid. (4 months, 3 weeks ago)

i @ #12109: I don't know about good to soft. Never heard of that. It wouldn't accept men for the bloke group which was disappointing. Liked it though (4 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #12107: Nice ideas! Look forward to your next grid. (4 months, 3 weeks ago)

Fitz @ #12107: Yeah I now realise there were two errors. The first I was referring to was Sofia (the square was supposed to be Sophia), and the second was getting the Australian capital completely wrong. Oh well. Was my first attempt at one of these. Lessons learned and all that. (4 months, 3 weeks ago)

Hampton Quimbles @ #12091: 'Manes' (4 months, 3 weeks ago)

Fitz @ #12107: Darn, an error in the capitals. Apologies. (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

bonehead @ #12101: I got all the links but called them something different so nul points (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

Fitz @ #12099: Got all the groups but then "board" was wrong, as was "synonyms for rush", as was "places in lancashire". (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

Thomas @ #12103: If you can't be bothered to make a grid, don't waste other people's time with it. This is an insult. (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

JamesD @ #12102: Once again, you're choosing some very specific categories of knowledge. A fun thing about a good grid is having different clues that could fit into multiple categories, creating a brain teaser working out how they go together. Here, for instance, "Fourth Grade Nothing" meant absolutely nothing to me. I couldn't think of any category it would fit into. I'd also never heard of any of the Disney songs. Now there I do think it's a more reasonable category to go for, and it's on me that I'm ignorant of them; however, that's a set I did get, because despite not knowing any of them I could see that they were different from the other clues. There, you've made it too easy to 'cheat the system'. (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

toast @ #12093: Good explanations. Thanks. (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

JamesD @ #12101: Sadly, I wasn't so keen on this one. Having the same word twice is not a great idea, and I'd never even heard of the Legend of Korra, so I'd question thinking of that as reasonable general knowledge. In my mind, a good grid has an element of challenge to it, but when you see the solution it makes sense. That's not the case with this one. I see "types of bending" and I'm just as confused as I was at the start. (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

toast @ #12100: A challenge for those of us from farther afield but very enjoyable. (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

survivor @ #12099: The theme answers don't seem to be included, but I'm pretty sure they're as follows: Targaryen etc.: Surnames from the TV series "Game of Thrones" Stockport etc.: Boroughs of Greater Manchester, UK Scurry etc.: Synonyms of "hurry" Surf etc.: Words that can precede "board" (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

Mike @ #12094: The first line has another equally valid link. That takes a lot of the point out of puzz grid (4 months, 4 weeks ago)

BLOFELD @ #12026: My first attempt at a grid so thanks for the feedback and sorry for making you so MAD. Personally I think accepting purely 'synonyms' is not enough. Synonyms for what? It's like allowing 'words' as an answer. Granted i could have picked a few more words to accept. Will try harder next time. (5 months ago)

Mister Tom @ #12026: You can't just announce how your characters are feeling! That makes me angry! ;-) I dont usually bother to put the connections in, so just a really nice, quite simple grid (5 months ago)

survivor @ #129: redkite, Designing Women was an American TV sitcom, reasonably popular in its day (1986-1993). However, its cast had five core characters, and of the names in this grid, only Bouvier is one of them. The other three names in this grid belong to secondary recurring characters, like B. J. Poteet, who appeared in 22 of the 163 episodes. Even to someone who watched the series (24 years ago), this set of secondary names would be obscure. (5 months ago)

chris @ #12026: If you're going to go for synonyms then you should really allow synonyms to be a valid answer. I put synonyms for mental as all the other words similar were already on the grid and you've put Synonyms for mad as the answer!!! THAT'S ALREADY ONE OF THE WORDS IN THE LINE- THIS MADE ME ANGRY!!!! (HENCE THE CAPITALS) as it ruined what would otherwise be a very good grid. (5 months ago)

E.L.Wisty @ #12007: A rabbit punch is a blow to the back of the head or to the base of the skull. It is considered especially dangerous because it can damage the cervical vertebrae and subsequently the spinal cord, which may lead to serious and irreparable spinal cord injury. (5 months ago)

survivor @ #11946: Tampa Bay Storm is an arena football team; that's the item that gave me that theme because it was clearly a phrase-based group, and a phrase beginning with a city is often a sports team. (I later learned Melbourne Storm is a rugby team.) I hadn't heard of the rhubarb triangle either (probably not well known outside the UK), but it was fun to learn about it, and I think the other three were easy enough to clue the theme on their own. Fred, the answer should probably have said "___ triangle." (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

If you have a good idea, look for a better one: River would have fitten in better, as would Bolt (!!). The -ink group is tooo obvious as it is - it could be made to work but needed a few more potential red herrings in it (or be made to consist entirely of herring). (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

i @ #11957: A bit specialised. I'm sure it was fine of that's you're cup of tea (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #11950: A good analysis of a series of less than satisfactory links,,,but .as you say,keep on trying., (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

i @ #11950: No, I'm sorry but no. This is poor. Words ending ink wasn't accepted and this isn't a great link anyway. Things that run?? If by refrigerators running you mean they're switched on that is far to general to use as a link. Likewise TV shows don't 'run' in a sense strong enough for a link. I've never used the term running to refer to a TV show. I wouldn't mind it for cars. Referring to a car running is a normal everyday phrase. Chairs aren't unique to kitchens. In fact I'm struggling to think or anyone I know who has a chair in their kitchen. It also sounds American, generally in the UK workop used instead of counter. Leadership positions is Ok but it's not going to blow any minds. I'm sorry to lay it on but this was just frustrsting and uneasant. There's no point not saying it to spare your feelings. Keep at it. I hope this'll help. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

i @ #11940: Should have allowed football clubs (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #11942: Imaginative! Only knock was this was a bit too easy despite its wealth of crossovers. Brod made its group a bit of a giveaway - I would probably have substituted it for Fun (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #11931: Ah yes!survivor you are right. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

survivor @ #11931: Presumably the theme for the eyelashes line should be "False ____." (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

Pamela @ #11852: Painful (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

Rigsby @ #11939: It's not the butlers I'm referring to. The inconsistency lies in the landlord group. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

bonehead @ #11939: ok, but why insist on "fictional" for butlers? (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

Rigsby @ #11939: Good grid, but you may have been a bit naughty using the real actress name instead of the fictional names like you did the rest. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

i @ #11924: Tough one. 30 more seconds and I might have done it. Nice work. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

i @ #11923: No crossovers or red herrings that I could see which made this very easy. No guessing or multiple attempts required. Beta blockers was a very obvious group despite not knowing what they were. I was half expecting it not to be a group. Drugs or medications should be an acceptable answer for that group though, we're not all doctors or need our betas blocked. Especially as medications is written in your answer. I didn't dislike it. It just wasn't a challenge. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

i @ #11915: The art group works as music too so you've basically got 2 music groups that can't be distinguished from each other. Flavours and colours are two of the most general categories I've ever seen They may have well have been 'things'. Sorry (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

E.L.Wisty @ #11906: Thanks Survivor, I appreciate your comments. Commuter, I take your point, although are you sure it's an electric train you catch, or might it be a diesel or a diesel electric? (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

knife @ #11716: Good stuff. Nicely misleading red herrings (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

survivor @ #11906: As a middle-aged American, I'd heard of all four electric phrases. To me, "electric train" refers to the toy, like a model train set. You can tell we're living in the future when things are presumed to be electrical unless otherwise specified. To mess with my younger coworkers, maybe I'll start saying "electric computer" to distinguish it from a slide rule. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

knife @ #11714: Nice grid, but some explanations would have been helpful. I doubt everyone knows off-hand who Edward John Smith was or what pogonophobia is. Well, I certainly didn't! (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

knife @ #11711: Neat. Agree with AlanP's quibble, but still enjoyable (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

Commuter @ #11906: Yep, I'm always saying must catch the electric train to get to work this morning. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

survivor @ #11907: Nicely constructed! (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

survivor @ #11898: I enjoy wordplay grids (especially anagrams), but I understand people have different preferences, so it's nice PuzzGrid has so much variety. i, it's spelled analog in the United States (as the opposite of digital), but from your question, I gather analogue must be the British spelling. Thanks, Wiz! (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

Hw @ #11799: Good grid. Tricky (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

E.L.Wisty @ #11906: Encyclopaedia Britannica Entry- Canine tooth, also called cuspid or eye tooth, in mammals, any of the single-cusped (pointed), usually single-rooted teeth adapted for tearing food, and occurring behind or beside the incisors (front teeth). (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

z @ #11906: I would have never got the "electric" group. Something a bit off about that group for me. Aside from the shade of blue, they're not words you'd tend to hear people precede with electric, even if they are electric. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

Sue C @ #11896: Stuck on tv programmes! (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

toast @ #11905: Pretty good. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

i @ #11902: Prince and monarch aren't synonyms. A monarch isn't always a prince and a Prince isn't always a monarch. I'd imagine the same can be said of the others. Rulers would have been a better answer. I can't comment on the other groups as it is an American grid and much of the references are lost on me. But regardless I would like more elaboration on the answers. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

a @ #11898: Can't believe anyone enjoyed that. A grid full of anagrams is as bad as it gets. (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

knife @ #11707: Good enough grid, but spoiled by the bad hair one; that's just too tenuous to be guessable (amusing though!) (5 months, 2 weeks ago)

i @ #11889: I liked that. Tricky but not so tough that it's not fun. Tripped up by palindromes. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #11884: Wouldn't accept system which all that group can be followed by but the given answer is systems - frustrating. Didn't understand the indicators though. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #11889: fairly tough and really good - especially like the the explanation for the Red Group. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Pox @ #11884: Nicely put,Miister Tom. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #11884: For me, it's ok as a quiz but didn't really work as a grid (and I am into science)- there's no crossovers (nervous and sensitive is the only thing that approaches one) and more knowledge than mystery (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

i @ #11874: Fig Newtons are called fig rolls in the UK. Cam Newton is an American football (handegg) player, and Huey Newton is a US political activist. This is a US grid. It's not realistic to expect a UK participant to get those references no matter how famous they are over there. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Wiz @ #11885: Quite good but foxed by fuel line! (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Omegaman @ #11870: The names one is too open and H doesn't fit with the others - it's just an initial. Also the birds one wouldn't accept types,of fowl. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

bonehead @ #11880: Loved the Omar Khayyam link - first ever literary reference in Puzzgrid (that I know of) (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Mister Tom @ #11874: yes It's American but not bad for all that - A fig newton is quite well known as a snack and Cameron Newton is a famous sportsman. Not sure how obscure the Essex group is tbh.

the big i @ #11879: Microphones was a tricky one for me. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

the big i @ #11874: Fig Newton? Cam Newton? Huey Newton? Maybe others have heard of these people(?) but they mean nothing to me. NY counties?? This was listed as an English grid. Not one of the best. Sorry Also, Why recycle the last grid? Confused. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Gamnara @ #11857: Fun puzzle. That seafood category may not be solvable to someone from the US. Tuna and tuner aren't homophones in my dialect, and I'd never heard of plaice. I looked it up, and it turns out it's not available in the states. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Pol @ #11831: What are Zoe code words ?Please? (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

i @ #11857: I think so Tuner = tuna Place = plaice Soul = sole Muscles = mussels Delicious (5 months, 3 weeks ago)

Miss Slink @ #11858: Outer worked for me! And Britpop is different to merely "pop" (plus Liam Gallagher would probably give you a knuckle sandwich if you referred to his band as a "pop group"). I liked this grid a lot - nice variety of topics, good cross-overs. (5 months, 3 weeks ago)
