Date   

ROGUE 1008 (One hour warning)

gary hallock
 

Knowing that some of you do not 1008 until the afternoon, I have decided to launch my rogue in the morning this week.

Expect my limerick-based Rogue to appear in your mailbox within the next hour.

Target time for launch is 10am central.

Gary Hallock

Note:  As a reminder, the wording for each riddle has been carefully chosen.  When guessing at a riddle, try to include as much of the idea content in the riddle as possible.  Also, as a rule I always have tried to avoid using any answer word being included in the riddle itself.

 

Clue Set #1:  

  • Letter counts for the first five riddles which have not been answered are provided below.

  • In addition, the clue for number 13 has been replaced.  It seems inadvertently I had referred to an acquaintance of mine, and not to someone who would be generally known.

Rogue Riddle 1007

 

Fancy of Flights

 

    The cold weather finally is here, so thoughts of escape arise.  It is time to fancy to take flight on the dreams of wings.  Aisle pose the riddles, but if you get the answers, you’ll window. 

 

    As usual this week’s Rogue consists of twenty riddles, all on the same theme.  

 

Q:  Robert E’s king?

A:  LEE’S MAJESTY (lese majesty or majesté)

 

Where both punned and unpunned answers are involved, full credit requires both answers.

 

    As always, remember that the wording of each riddle generally has been carefully chosen both to provide clues and to avoid the use of any words in the answer.

 

    Because of the three-day weekend, the riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday.  As usual, the first person to solve all the riddles will be declared the winner.  If no one has solved all the riddles by 5:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner and will host Rogue Riddle 1008 next week.

 

    Now, on to the riddles.

Gary H.  (45%) – 9 kills (3, 6, 8, 9, 12, 14, 18, 19, 20)

No guesses – 1: 10

 

Note:  As a reminder, the wording for each riddle has been carefully chosen.  When guessing at a riddle, try to include as much of the idea content in the riddle as possible.  Also, as a rule I always have tried to avoid using any answer word being included in the riddle itself.

 

Clue Set #1:  

  • Letter counts for the first five riddles which have not been answered are provided below.
  • In addition, the clue for number 13 has been replaced.  It seems inadvertently I had referred to an acquaintance of mine, and not to someone who would be generally known.
