All,
 
    PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THE PREVIOUS TRANSMISSION.  I had omitted the magic subject line coding which returns guesses just to me instead of to the list.  Thanks.

   There are now four players this week.
 
     Herewith the second clue set.
 
Clue Set #1:  The letter counts for the first ten riddles are provided below.
 

Clue Set #1:  The letter counts for the remaining ten riddles are provided below.

Rogue Riddle #1037
Talkin’ ‘Bout the Animals
 
 They share the planet with us, so let's talk about the animals.
 
 
    As usual, this week’s Rogue Riddle consists of twenty riddles.  Each riddle has two answers which sound similar.  Both answers are required for full credit.  Most of these are very easy one-word answers, but there are one or two “4.0 busters” in the mix.
 
    One “BLANK” is used for each answer, where needed. Note that the indicator BLANK may stand in for one or more words.  Also, note that the BLANK may be preceded by the article “a.”  This provides no indication of whether or not the word or words the BLANK replaces begins with a vowel or silent “h.”
 
   Examples:
 
Q:  It sounds like this bird likes to brag a lot.  Quite naturally, a BLANK will BLANK a lot.
A:  CROW / CROW
 
Q:  This animal sounds like a mild human ailment.

A:  COLT / COLD

 
    As always, effort has gone into the setup wording to provide necessary clues.
 
    The riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday.  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 Wednesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner.
 
    Now, on to the riddles.
 
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 
 
1.  What animal sounds modern?
      (3 / 3)
 
2.  This animal sounds like it likes to talk.
       (3 / 3)
 
3.    This bird sounds as though it is ready to go right from the outset, no preparation required.
        (6 / 7)
 
4.  An animal with a raspy voice?
     (5 / 6)
 
5.  Perhaps this animal lives in a college student building?
      (8 / 9)
 
6.  This animal loves to play by the riverbank, of course.  That’s because a BLANK BLANK have fun.
      (5 / 6)
 
7.  This canine appears in rainstorms.
      (6 / 6)
 
8.  This animal bears watching, as it caters to baser instincts.  Yes, the BLANK has been known to BLANK.

10.  This bird has its own desk in a hotel lobby.
        (7 / 5-2, or 5, 2, or 7)  (Different spellings, but the same answer.)
 
11.  The lazy BLANK can be found BLANK in the veldt.
        (4 / 4’)
 
12.  As for the canine mentioned earlier, you know it was brought out by the BLANK, right?

13.  Is it a BLANK who deputizes sheriffs for a posse?
       (6 / 6)
 
14.  Perhaps this lizard is an appropriate decoration for a traditional Japanese ceramic stove.

15.  The BLANK is one of the largest cervine species.  There are many of its BLANK around.
       (3 / 3)

    One person asked for examples, which I had not thought necessary as these are all straight puns this week.   Nevertheless, I am including two examples in the write-up.

=======================================================


A little change of pace...no puns today, sorry...but hopefully just as challenging & fun! (Writing the instructions was tougher than the riddles!)

Below, you'll see 18 descriptions/clues to what I'll call "compound words" (even though not truly compound but close enough). Each compound word will contain one of these 3 prefixes or suffixes ("ment","mint" or "mant") except #18 where "ment", "mint" or "mant" is actually in the middle of the word.
The 18 descriptions show 2 clues, the 1st being the meaning of just the part of the word by itself without the prefix or suffix...the 2nd clue is the meaning of the entire compound word when the prefix or suffix is added.

Examples:  
ex.#1) small fruit/fantastic notion = (fig-ment)  figment
ex.#2) private room/English legislature = (parlor) parliament
ex.#3) infused leaf liquid extract /cooling sensation flavor = (tea-mint) minty

Your job...try to guess as many of the 18 compound words based on the 2 clues and knowing that each & every compound word contains either "mint,ment or mant" either at the beginning or end of the entire word (except #18).       send guesses and worksheet to:  doug10101@... 

1 simple/access

2 vision/stonelike

3 needle fish/outfit

4 1st,2nd,3rd,home/bunker

5 over eater/skin colorer

6 sharp weapon/sharp flavor

7 beer/sickness

8 vessel/cargo

9 electrical power unit/undesirable animal

10 gift or delicacy/cure

11 separated/flat

12 portal/inactive or asleep

13 ripped/suffer

14 Tx, Ca or Fl/proclamation

15 Gore,Green,Einstein/mind related

16 tonal scale note/grief

Look for an early launch tomorrow, Saturday around 11:00 a.m.  

Be pre-paired for something completely different...no pun attended

Hopefully, we'll have a good turnout,not a bad turnover, so turn-in on time but turnabout is fair play [in case you don't like it]

ROGUE RIDDLE #1035 (Bingo & reveal)

gary hallock
 

It kind of surprised me that so many players were willing to stay up late to receive and work on this riddle. Three of the players submitted their solutions within the first hour and another few in the wee small hours of Monday morning.

First out of the gate with a clean sweep was Erika Ettin, followed quickly by Lars Hanson and Doug Spector. Bringing up the rear were Chris Gross, Adam Engel, Jon Gearhart and Bill Crider. Nearly everyone knocking this one out of the park.

Trigger happy Erika was the clear victor here but she seems as eager as I am to see what Doug has up his sleeve, so watch for his version of Rogue Riddle #1036 to appear in your mailbox some day (or night) next weekend.

As usual, I have filled in the BLANKs in the verses below. Thank you all for playing

Lars, I am in several other group.io list and moderate others, so I put them all mvandriesen@... to save confusion for myself, aging brain and all. EmojiEmojiEmoji  I've been so busy, and then our internet was gone for half a day so I am more behind than usual.

I 'think' I finished the first 3 of Gary's limericks and after that became befuddled.  Not having much time, I set it aside for a while.

RR #1035 (20 minute warning)

gary hallock
 

A late evening launch is better than a Monday launch.

Real life interfered with my weekend plans and caused a significant delay in the creative process.

Expect to see RR #1035 at 10pm central.

Rogue Riddle 1034 -- Winner Declared and Answers Revealed

Lars Hanson
 

All,

 

    There were 5 players this week:  Jim, Gary, Aaron, Marilyn, and Bill., in order of joining the game.  Very early on, Gary gained the lead with 13 clean kills and two partials.    Aaron seized second place with 11 kills and two partials.


The final standings were as follows:

 

Gary H – 13 correct + 2 partials (70%):  1, 3, 4, 9 – 17, 19, plus partials on 6 and 8

Aaron Fasel – 11 correct + 2 partials (60%):  1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, plus partials on 7 and 18

Bill Crider – 9 correct + 2 partials (50%):  1, 3, 4, 6, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, plus partials on 15 and 18

Jim Ertner – 7 correct (35%): 1, 3, 4, 12, 13, 15, 19

Marilyn –-1 correct (5%):  12 

 

    Gary will host Rogue Riddle #1035 next week.


    Final riddle stats (5 players):

 

5 correct –  1:   12

4 correct –  4:   1, 4, 13, 19

3 correct –  2:   3, 15

2 correct –  4:   6, 10, 14, 17, 

1 correct – 7:   5, 8, 9, 11, 16, 18, 20

0 correct – 2:   2, 7

 

    Only two riddles remained unanswered:  #2, likely because of the length of the answer, and #7, the “4.0 buster,” because it was a bit esoteric.  Solving #2 required one using all the information in the set-up.  All the other riddles fell to at least one player, as the statistics show.

 

    I hope that you all enjoyed this week’s Rogue Riddle.

 

    The answers to the riddles are included below.  Instead of listing them after the riddle, I have embedded the answers within each riddle. 

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

Rogue Riddle #1034

Another Potpourri

 

    This week’s Rogue Riddle consists of twenty riddles.  Each riddle has two answers which sound similar.  Both answers are required for full credit.   There are Spoonerism, homophones, and a few daffynitions thrown in for good measure. As an example of homophones:

 

Q: She decided that pennies, too, should have knurled edges.  Thus did BLANK   become the first person to BLANK.

A:  MILLICENT / MILL A CENT

 

    One “BLANK” is used for each answer, where needed. Note that the indicator BLANK may stand in for one or more words.  Also, note that the BLANK may be preceded by the article “a.”  This provides no indication of whether or not the word or words the BLANK replaces begins with a vowel or silent “h.”

 

    As always, effort has gone into the setup wording to provide necessary clues.

 

    The riddle will run until 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday.  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. EST on Wednesday, the one with the most correct answers will be declared the winner.

 

Hint:  As always, be sure to read the set-ups carefully and try to use all the information contained in them.

 

    Now, on to the riddles.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

1.  They lived next to a church whose bells rang the time regularly, so they always knew the hours because the bells TOLLED / TOLD them.

 

2.  Whenever the inmates went out to work growing vegetables, there were men to watch over them to make sure none escaped.   They were GUARDIN’ THE PRISONERS in THE PRISONERS’ GARDEN.

 

3.  A-MAZED or AMAZED – Lost in a convoluted hedge.

 

4.  The Scotsman asked his pupil, “Laddie, dinna ye kin what they call that wee bit that sticks up on a sundial and casts a shadow?”  Quite naturally, the boy replied, “NO, MON / GNOMON.”

 

5.  In what is perhaps the most famous photograph of Marilyn Monroe, her skirt is lofted upward.  Could it be there was a BLOWER BELOW ‘ER?

 

6.  When Theodore and his husband moved into the development the residents were very happy.  They all thought that security had been enhanced now that they lived in a  GAY TED COMMUNITY / GATED COMMUNITY

 

7.  Down Under the language is quite different to elsewhere.  Many find listening to STRINE to be a STRAIN.  (The Aussies pronounce the two words almost identically.  “Strine” comes from the Aussie pronunciation of “Australian.”)

 

8.  What is the difference between a vitreous classic penny loafer and a particular Scotsman?  One is a GLASS WEEJUN and the other is a GLASWEGIAN.

 

9.  The song and dance about Mother Brown calls for a COCK KNEE or COCKED KNEE / COCKNEY, which sounds like a distinctive English dialect.

 

10.   What happens when reciting a collection of Walt Whitman’s poetry to a sad young lady?  One reads LEAVES OF GRASS, while there GRIEVES A LASS. 

 

11.  What is the difference between a monster’s home and an arrow with no notch for the bowstring?  One is LOCH NESS, while the other is NOCKLESS.

 

12.  Why are Dutch flowers like what one kisses with?  Both are TULIPS / TWO LIPS.

 

13.   Why are ghosts so often drunk?  It’s because of all the BOOS / BOOZE.  (Another good guess was “spirits.”)

 

14.   He was a poor student, always arriving late to school.  The teacher naturally asked his parents. “What time does the SON RISE / SUN RISE?”

 

15.  What is the difference between a drapery support and solid bit of soured milk?  One is a CURTAIN ROD, while the other is a ROTTEN CURD.

 

16.  What is the difference between a diploma and an inexpensive pelt?  One is a SHEEPSKIN while the other is a CHEAP SKIN.

 

17.  What is the difference between a fellow lead actor and something to put under a glass?  One is a CO-STAR, while the other is a COASTER.

 

18.  There are just two major aircraft manufacturers, so when we are flying there are times when an AIRBUS will BEAR US from one place to the next.

 

19.  What is the difference between a pantomime game and something to help one blacken a surface by burning?  One is a CHARADE, while the other is a CHAR AID.

 

20.   ECONOMIST – A cheap fog.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

    It was great to see some new faces this week!  

 

    Thank you all for playing!


    Take it away, Gary!

 

    Aloha,

        Lars

Yes, I should have responded earlier.  Our world is about upside down now with busyness.  You've heard of "biting off more than you can chew"?  That was us today and I fear also tomorrow.  Thank you for the wonderful clues.  I really appreciate them.

Re: Rogue Riddle 1034 - #RogueRiddle - Status 3 and Clue Sets 2 & 3 #RogueRiddle

Lars Hanson
 

All,
 
    No change since yesterday, so perhaps it is time for another round of clues.

   But first, some current riddle statistics (4 players):

     4 correct  1:   12

     3 correct –  5:   1, 4, 13, 15, 19

     2 correct –  3:   3, 10, 17

     1 correct   7:   5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 

     0 correct  4:   2, 7, 18, 20


Hints:
 
    For the newcomers here, perhaps a quick explanation is in order.  Usually (but not always, depending on the host), complete answers are used.  This eliminates any necessity for the host having to make any assumptions about what may or may not have been intended.
 
    Also, over the 22-plus years we have been doing this, some other conventions and customs have arisen which help in solving these.  Such usages will become apparent over time.  It is useful to keep the various forms in mind:

Homophones:  Same word or phrase but spelled or use differently, as in the example provided in this week's introduction:  
Q:  She decided that pennies, too, should have knurled edges.  Thus did BLANK   become the first person to BLANK.
A:  MILLICENT / MILL A CENT

Spoonerisms:  Like Marilyn's riddles last week in which the initial letters or sounds of something are exchanged.  The something may be a word or a phrase:  A well-brushed equine is a CURRIED HORSE while rapid teaching makes for a HURRIED COURSE.  A Spoonerism often is indicated or signaled by a question beginning with, "What is the difference between...?," but not always.

Daffynition:  A daffy definition of a word may be provided or asked for (either way).  In the case of the word being defined, a one-word answer usually suffices, and there will not be two answers to the riddle.

    With my setups, I usually take some pains to incorporate all the necessary information in the setup (the text of the riddle), and to minimize any extraneous information.  Obviously, this cannot always be achieved, but I do try.  Thus, with my riddles, it pays to look at the wording carefully.  Others tend to be less specific.
 
    Reading the introduction to a Rogue Riddle set almost always helps.  If there is a theme, it may be identified there or in the title.  In addition, some special requirements may be identified there as well.  For instance, in this week's introduction it is noted that the word BLANK may refer to one or more words in the answer.  (This is not always the case. Sometimes each word in a multi-word answer may be replaced by a BLANK.) 
 
    Finally, the way to get further clues usually is to submit guesses.  With the responses to guesses normally (but not always!) come additional clues.
 
Clue Set #1:  Letter counts for the first ten riddles are provided below.  (Yes, the inclusions of apostrophes are intentional.)

Clue Set #2:  Letter counts for the last ten riddles are provided below.  (Yes, the inclusions of apostrophes are intentional.)

Clue Set #3:  Clues are provided for the four unanswered riddles.
