What flaw it is hard, not impossible Your just throwing out negative comments. Put a grid up and be there to be criticized.

A bit of a strange grid with two groups very easy to resolve and two groups very difficult. I was surprised to see that royals/monarchs was not accepted for the line of, erm, royals/monarchs.

Thanks for the grid Teno. Maybe the flawed comment was regarding the use of capitals? Or maybe the first names group which, frankly, is nigh on feckin' impossible :))

They are not royals they are reservoirs. The hard part was in it's connection, not the obvious. And capitals is a caps lock error hardly punctuation police territory. Don't worry wont submit anymore, its like performing for Waldorf and Statler. Jeez people get a life.

I'm sorry you feel like that Tenomt but when a group are all in capital letters and none of the others are, without even looking any further one would try them as a group. That makes the grid flawed. It's not a grammar issue at all. As for the Royal link you do highlight a problem. Played live, the host could say, "I need something more specific" but on here you can't. I've found it best to give the point for the easy way to express a link and then in the notes just say, "Have a bonus point if you also spotted...."
Now put your bat and ball down and stay and play. :-)

The point is that the actual connection to the Royals group is far too obscure, and people will quite rightly opt for the obvious connection. The group that is capitalised may as well scream "I'M A GROUP" and the first names group is an incredibly narrow category to expect people to categorise correctly. It's constructive criticism TENOMT, not nitpicking for the sake of it. Take it in the spirit with which its intended.
