Rogue Riddle 1044 - Status and Clue Set 4 - #RogueRiddle

Lars Hanson
 

All,

 

    Gregg continues to whittle away at this week’s Rogue Riddle set, increasing his lead over Gary.  The current standings are as follows:

 

    The current standings are as follows:

 

Gregg (70%) – 14 kills (1-4, 6-9, 12, 14, 16, 18-20)

 

Gary H. (57.5%) -- 11 kills  (1-7, 12, 16, 18, 20) plus one partial (11)

 

Adam (47.5%) – 9 kills (1, 3-5, 8, 12, 16,  18, and 20) plus one partial on 6

 

Jim (5%) -- 1 kill  (12)

 

    The current riddle status is as follows:

 

4 correct – 1:  12

3 correct – 6:  1, 3, 4, 16, 18, 20

2 correct – 5:  2, 5, 6, 7, 8

1 correct – 3: 9, 14, 19

0 correct – 5: 10, 11, 13, 15, 17

 

No guesses –1: 15

 

Hints:

 

The answers are all regular puns (homonyms, like daffynitions) with two Spoonerisms.

 

There are no oblique set-ups – each set-up provides the information for the answer (as one would expect for daffynitions).

 

The wording of the set-ups is selected quite specifically and carefully (as usual for my riddles) – paying attention to the information in the set-up pays off here.

 

Clue Set #1:

 

    Letter counts for the first four unanswered riddles are provided.

 

Clue Set #2:

 

    Letter counts for the remaining five unanswered riddles are provided.

 

Clue Set #3:

 

    Letter counts for the six riddles which have only been answered once or twice are provided below.

 

Clue Set #4:

 

    Letter counts for the remaining riddles plus clues for the five unanswered riddles are provided below.

Rogue Riddle #1044
The Game’s A-Foot . . .

 
    One solution to ease being cooped up is to engage in some bored games,  or perhaps some scarred, or maybe to chop up the time with some diced games.  And that is this week’s theme.  The challenge:  Name these games.

 
    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.
  
   Example:
 

Q:  Though I may sound like something for an axle, actually I am a country.  What am I?

A:  GREECE / GREASE

  
    As always, effort has gone into the setup wording to provide necessary clues.
 
    Since this is a long weekend, the riddle will run one day longer, until 5:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.  As usual, the first person to solve all the riddles will be declared the winner and will host Rogue Riddle 1045 next week.  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.
 
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

     (8 / 8)

3.  A war game played with breath mints.

      (7, 2 / 7, 2)

 

4.  A towering game for toppling vociferous super-patriots.

5.  A game of musical instruments sliding among the dimly illuminated areas.

        This French card game was a milestone of its own.

16.  A game of becoming a pop singer’s helpers through pantomimes.

        (4, 5 / 8)

 

17.  A game about a lousy massage.

        (6, 3 / 8)

Rogue Riddle 1044 - Status 1 -- #RogueRiddle

Lars Hanson
 

All,

 

    The action began early yesterday, with 20% of the riddles falling to Adam in less than forty minutes.  Jim also has weighed in.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 
Rogue Riddle #1044
The Game’s A-Foot . . .

 
    One solution to ease being cooped up is to engage in some bored games,  or perhaps some scarred, or maybe to chop up the time with some diced games.  And that is this week’s theme.  The challenge:  Name these games.

 
    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.
  
   Example:
 

Q:  Though I may sound like something for an axle, actually I am a country.  What am I?

A:  GREECE / GREASE

  
    As always, effort has gone into the setup wording to provide necessary clues.
 
    Since this is a long weekend, the riddle will run one day longer, until 5:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.  As usual, the first person to solve all the riddles will be declared the winner and will host Rogue Riddle 1045 next week.  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.    A game of hurriedly written words.

 

2.   A game in which sailors try to discover who tied a line to the corner of a sail.

 

3.     A war game played with breath mints.

 

4.     A towering game for toppling vociferous super-patriots.

 

5.     A game of musical instruments sliding among the dimly illuminated areas.  

 

6.     A children’s’ game of clumsiness.

 

7.     A card game about male red deer.

 

8.     A card game named for a strange donkey?

 

9.     A game in which the players try to cover holes in fabric simply.

 

10. The challenge here is to carry dinner on a tray without spilling any.

 

11. Collecting an artificial sweetener.

 

12. A game wrapped in a piece of Indian clothing.

 

13. A game to begin thinking about oneself.

 

14. A game of indelicacy.

 

15. A game to arrest a stoned criminal.

 

16. A game of becoming a pop singer’s helpers through pantomimes.

 

17. A game about a lousy massage.

 

18. A card game about neutered animals.

 

19. A card game in a metal tin.

 

20. A Danish island gambling card game.

 

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

 

    As always, it would be great to see some new faces this week!  

 

    Please remember to ensure your answers are directed to me.  You should be able just to hit “Reply” (thanks, Norm!),  but to be ceertain you may address all guesses, surmises, suppositions, estimates, conjectures, SWAG’s, stabs, pokes, and other such directly to me at:


parkersan2001@...

Gregg, and others,

You can opun the old puns in the puny.groups.io  site. and search the archives . For rogues riddles just put that in the search and it will take you back to the beginning. 

https://puny.groups.io/

As you can see the arcives go back to 1999 and can be searched  as per:

https://puny.groups.io/g/main/search?p=Created,,ROGUE+RIDDLE,20,2,20,0#

Frankly, there is punning gold there and we have Lee to thanik for saving it.

Hi Gary, I was wondering what had happened to this. Through hard work and Fiedlering I had solved the middle 11 way back when, put it aside in favor of, well, life, and then hadn’t heard anything. Thanks for doing it. Kudos to you—the acoustics of most of these I thought were just absolutely gorgeous—your #10, the last one I finally decomposed with Beethoven was a master, uh, piece of sound manipulation. Number 12 was a straight on aural rimsky. I must say though, 1 and 13 didn’t have the same beautiful music in my opinion. Even given the answers, I sadly am still not hearing them. (“Because of” rather than “I have” on 13 might have let me hear it a little better.) Could be the fox and the sour grapes of course. (Or is that Peter and the wolf?) Congratulations to Lars!

I was going to leave it there but have to say thank you for turning me on to this Rogue Riddle stuff. To me, it’s like cross training for pun crafting, coming at it from a different angle than a Punniest soliloquy type construction—like the same bit of trivia can be expressed as a question or, like Jeopardy, an “answer.” Do people here ever talk and discuss about how they approach these, the delight with finally hearing one fall and how their mind works to bend it, like, perhaps, the snake fighting and finally finding the curve in the pipe? Great stuff.

ROGUE RIDDLE #1043 - Launched Sunday, Oct 4 @1pm central time.

This is a very straightforward set this week. Taking the cue from Gregg, I’m offering up a bakers dozen but some of them will contain two blanks. In some cases these blanks will relate to each other, but not always. First player with all (or most) kills wins the chance to host next week’s game. 

@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@%@

0. (Example) 
Someone baroque the BLANK on the BLANK door.  (HANDEL) (BACH)

1.
The composer has nearly finished paying off his mortgage. BLANK is only one more payment to make! He BLANK anything now.  - #### HECTOR - BERLIOZ

2.
Writing a dozen pun riddles about composers is something that’s long been on my bucket BLANK. - #### LISTZ

3.
We’re going to hang out at Banana Republic and then have lunch at Chick fil-a. Do you want to come with us to the BLANK BLANK not? - #### CHOPIN - MAHLER

4.
Oh, there you are, Doctor Jeckyl. Where have you been BLANK all this time? - #### HAYDN

5.
When drinking with classical composers, it’s best not to engage in too much BLANK. - #### BARTOK

6.
As a fan of violent slapstick comedy, of course I enjoy the antics of Larry & Curly, but I strongly favor BLANK-istry. - #### MOZART

7.
As they were dressing to go out for a walk down Sesame Street, Ernie asked his pal, “Have you seen my other BLANK?" - #### SCHUBERT

The classical composer went in for a haircut, he told Samuel Barber to take it from the top, and also a little BLANK. - #### OFFENBACH 

9.
We have lots of convicted composers in this prison. It’s kind of crowded but the warden tries to keep it down to two convicts BLANK. - #### PURCELL

10.
Some pervs are exhibitionists, but most sex addicts prefer to have a private room to BLANK. - #### BEETHOVEN

11.
The waltz of this house are starting to buckle and warp. That’s because the roof puts too much BLANK on them. - #### STRAUSS 

12.
Strapped into my cross-country snow gear I decided to circumnavigate the snowy top of an extinct volcano. As usual my asthma starting acting up and I began hacking and wheezing. That’s right, whenever I BLANK-BLANK. - #### RIMSKY-KORSAKOV

Both Adam and Gregg came on strong at first but were unable to orchestrate enough straight lines to connect all 13. Surprisingly the first and last of this set proved to be the toughest for most players but it was Lars who eventually broke through the elusive #13 and claimed the sweep.

Watch for Lars to launch RR #1044 one day this weekend.

Thank you all for playing,

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

ROGUE RIDDLE #1043 - Launched Sunday, Oct 4 @1pm central time.

This is a very straightforward set this week. Taking the cue from Gregg, I’m offering up a bakers dozen but some of them will contain two blanks. In some cases these blanks will relate to each other, but not always. First player with all (or most) kills wins the chance to host next week’s game.
