RogueRiddle #1076 (Bingo & Reveal!)
Only 3 players were brave enough to enter the risk winning this week. Jim E. and Doug S. both chimed in early with 5 kills each but were not heard from again. Next one up was was Gregg S. who not only came on strong but refined his guesses until he had racked up a near clean sweep.
A big “thank you” goes out to everyone who even read through these riddles and perhaps thought about playing. Gregg will be hosting #1077 this weekend. Hopefully he’ll stir up a little more excitement than did I.
Riddle answers have been “incorporated” into the listing below.

ROGUE RIDDLE #1076 - Launched May 23, 2021 @ 12:30pm central
Below you will find a series of 10 short sentences, each containing one or more BLANK spaces. Into each BLANK you should be able to insert the name of a flower (or flowers) which will more-or-less satisfy the punned implication of the set-up. (Yes, some answers will be plural, bouquet?)
Because it was a bit of a stretch anyhow, I have sacrificed one riddle as a Sample Question for inspirational purposes. Be the first to send me a private reply with all (or most) of the required floral names, and win yourself the honor of hosting Rogue Riddle #1077 next weekend.
When responding, please do so (privately) in the form of a full worksheet, as I have not bothered to memorize all these names and numbers myself. Collecting and recording your progress in a single email will make it much easier for me to keep and report your score.
