The Guessing Game

#795

for 7 all I can think of is “ordinary” but it doesn’t really match the clues lol.

#796

I know it was tough :slight_smile: But it seems you could master it. Well done! :clap:
All correct, but cursing.
On the contrary, no. 2 is what happens when somebody curses in the Forum!
Reproach and detector are clues for two homophones.
As for no. 7, add Vasarely’s art and a synonym for west, and you’ll have your competitor!

#797

@WannabeCoder guessed number 2 already :slight_smile:

#798

Yes, correct! Very well done! :slight_smile:

#799

I give up on 5 & 7. Brain freeze LOL.

#800

I can imagine it is difficult for you to guess no. 5, because you are not one of them (think of a synonym for martyrs)! LOL

#801

Saints? :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:

#802

Yes! LOL

Tomorrow I’ll give the explanations for my clues.

#803

Ahh, I think I got 7: opponent! Tough one!

Perfect! Bravo! :clap: :clap:

I know it was tough, but I thought Replay players would like for once a mental exercise of a different kind. :slight_smile:

Here the explanations:

  1. Forum = Roman square
  2. Censure (reproach) + sensor (detector); “from what one hears”: indicator for homophones
  3. Threads can mean costumes + motifs
  4. Figures = stats; “back and fort”: indicator for a palindrome
  5. Saints (martyrs) or stains (spots); “inebriated”: indicator for anagram
  6. Hater in washateria
  7. Op (art) + ponent (west) = opponent (competitor)
  8. Replay = anagram of pearly; repeat = replay; “broken”: indicator for anagram

Here are some more cryptic clues. They are related to the Forum, like the previous ones.

  1. Does this French label dictate the protocol? (9 letters).
  2. This dangerous lady can be found in many infamous gangs like Binguma, Yabberuza and Donkura! (4 letters)
  3. Gossip about Tempranillo? (9 letters)
  4. The Ministry Of Defence returned the bottles of Dom Perignon (3 letters).
  5. Some like to nail on the wall these participants (7 letters).
