#RogueRiddle 1031 - BINGO & REVEAL #RogueRiddle

Once again I’ve left you languishing through the long week wondering when/if I was going to finally announce a winner and reveal the answers. Well, here we are at the eleventh hour and I’m happy to report that not only did we entertain and intrigue at least 7 players this week, but nearly every one of them eventually came through with a full dozen properly completed matches. Several players, in fact presented a “perfect sweep” on their first volley. At the top of that group was Erika Ettin, whose worksheet came in very early and boldly offered to claim the prize.

For anyone who is still pondering this puzzle or wishes to share or cherish it, I have shuffled in the answers below.

Participants this week, all of whom are real winners, were as follows.

ERIKA ETTIN
JIM ERTNER
MARILY VAN DRIESEN
LARS HANSON
DOUG SPECTOR
CHRIS GROSS
BILL CRIDER

It is with great pleasure that I announce and anticipate Erika’s posting of RR #1032 some day this weekend. I do hope that we will show her a similar level of participation and appreciation.

Thank you for playing,

Gary (Leerless Feeder) Hallock

In loving memory of both Cynthia and Stan, I am this week offering a dozen of my own Punny daffynitions from the PUNY archives. As they were both avid creators and collectors of this form of wordplay, I deemed this the most appropriate way to honor their collective memory. Even though some of these have been shared with PUNY before, I have re-jiggered each of these into a riddle format. Thus, this is technically not a “repeat” in any significant way.

If this presentation strategy plays well with the gang, in the future iterations of this game, I may offer up some other lists which are based on Daffynitions earlier sprung upon us by Cyn or Stan.

Below you will find a listing of a dozen “PROMPT” words/terms numbered 1 thru 12.
Below that you will find a listing of a dozen “daffynitions" lettered A thru L. which are my own punny for each of the twelve prompts.

Because nobody reads or follows my instructions anyhow, feel free to mesh these two lists in whatever way works for you and respond to me privately at the address provided.

First player with the most (or all) correct matches will ignite my flaming admiration and win the chance to turn me down on the opportunity to host his/her own version of the Rogue next week.
