Sorry Jayem: Have to disagree also. If a more specific connection applies, then it has to be the 1 that counts. On the TV show I distinctly remember "Surnames of actresses in Mad Men" & "Editors of Punch Magazine" being solutions.
If a single word generic answer SURNAMES was accepted as an answer, the whole thing would descend into unsolvable farce.
Also, unique solutions would become a thing of the past.
e.g. G.1 = UK Prime Ministers, G.2 = Colours.
If G.1 contained BROWN, and SURNAMES was accepted as a solution, then Black, Green or White from G.2 could be swapped with BROWN. (3 years, 7 months ago)
grim: Jayem: I disagree. I mean, Only Connect walls frequently feature surnames which are not linked just by their being surnames. That is, for a category to be good, it should be specific, and therefore 'masculine names' is not a very good category.
I would never have gotten the REM connection, it's just knowledge I don't have. Is that the grid at fault, or me? Or a bit of both? I think these first names are too generic to make a good category, and surnames have been better (I still wouldn't have known them but might have been able to make a guess.)
Anyway. I'm overthinking. (3 years, 7 months ago)
Jayem: "Masculine names" should be accepted. An answer should be the only thing the 4 squares have in in common, or the most general thing. (3 years, 7 months ago)
