Could this be any easier? Come back with a proper grid.

Insane Steve
Well, I think the other ones I made are at least slightly harder...

Wait, judging from the comments, perhaps not. Screw it next one I make gets called "very easy" no matter what I come up with.

A bit easier, but satisfying nonetheless. I liked the red herrings where clues could overlap multiple categories.

it was great.
only one i didn't get was the beds....
is "full" a proper size if al the others have king.. queen.. & so on? maybe.. it is not my speciality! ^_^

Enough red herrings in the moon and chess to cause delightful annoyance
(5 years, 6 months ago)

TF
Good red herrings, but honestly I think it is not medium difficulty. It's easy enough to guess through the chess red herrings and get rid of those at the beginning. Overall, a very enjoyable wall.

I think this is medium..or hard.think you must have had inspired guesses,TF.

puzzGrid
A wall's difficulty is set by votes after a short period of time so there's no point in complaining to the setter anyhow.

No idea what a "full" mattress is, did you mean "double"? Otherwise great quiz!

Moons was a great category. Lots of opportunities for red herrings. Good grid. Solved at last moment.... Always enjoyable when you grab the last grid with seconds to spare!

For those expressing confusion in the comments below...

In the U.S.A. a "full" mattress is a term for the size of mattress between "twin" and "queen". The terms "double" can also be used in place of the term "full". In the U.S. they refer to the same exact size of mattress. Different countries have other standards for terms and sizes of mattresses so keep this in mind. :)

not for your transatlantic friends. We don't have such a thing as a 'full mattress' over here in Britain

Great grid! Particularly liked the clever group starting with "Bout".

I got marked as correct for typing "laundry detergent" for the group with 'Bout' lol

Could see Chess was a group (but which 4)
The Letter A was clever. though I found fairly quickly
I was stumped for a while (as it should be) on the others.
As I would never of thought of mattress sizes.

I solved the wall. Chess, mattress sizes (USA), moon phases, but I didn’t get the last connection. Although, I felt good for solving the wall.

Once I'd identified the chess pieces it was quite easy. A satisfying grid.

Gain, Mount, Bout, Shamed: the answer I gave was "positions in a one-night stand", and it said I was correct, presumably because my answer included the letter "a".
(1 year, 3 months ago)

sadia
enjoyed, thanks. on the easier end of medium me thinks
(1 year, 2 months ago)

Drew
Too ambiguous. King and queen could fit into chess pieces and full fits into phases of the moon.
(1 year, 2 months ago)

Joe
I entered "words" into the mount/shamed/gain/bout category because I had no idea what it was and it was accepted lmao

I agree with the person below me
(1 year, 2 months ago)

jd
too many false group members... e.g. queen and king also chess pieces, full also a type of moon. you have to do endless random guesses even after finding the connection. but a great wall

The red herrings are awesome. Some people seem to not understand the point of them in this game.

I shouldn't have been marked off for saying "beds" instead of mattress size, but other than that, good

no problem with american terminology- got the puzzle in secs (I'm British) as obviously sizes of something- rest of the group gives it away. Love the wordplay- most criticism here is from people who don't understand the entire format of the site! Doh!

Janus
Somehow managed to get the mount/bout/shamed/gain group right (first try) on the wall, despite never figuring the actual connection out. I though the connection was that they were all monosyllabics with falling diphthongs as their nucleus. Then I noticed ‘knight’ was there too and that idea fell to the floor…
(9 months, 2 weeks ago)

Nice grid. The bout group.. I was able to put in the word "word" and it said it was correct

didn't have a clue about the add an A line
(8 months, 4 weeks ago)

watch only connect
Everyone that says "Having something that fits more than 1 category" is a moron.. that's the whole point of the connecting wall... watch the show up on You Tube... If all of the items had exactly 1 group, the walls would be simple and pointless

The bed sizes are the American equivalent of Single and Double which I think is causing some of the confusion below. Excellent otherwise!

Technically "half" moon is properly called a "quarter" and the one where you add "a" is brilliant.

Good wall! Identified the 5 moons, brute forced them, then brute forced the 6 possible chess pieces. Caught the A’s with 5 seconds to spare after spending a minute staring at them, and noticed the beds only when it came time to answer for a very close 10.

So for bout/gain/mount/shamed I was confused and guessed games, which somehow worked. Other than that, great fun, nice red herrings.

shamed and ashamed are kind of the same though?
