Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 4 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I also appreciated the TOM on the Zebulon clue.

Are you going to accept "The Forsythe Saga" instead of "The Forsyte Saga"? There's no particular reason why you should, I guess. (I honestly thought it was the former.) But if you do, I will have my first ever perfecto.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Singer is major negbait for the 6-pointer in "Tributes". He didn't die until 1875. Howe died in 1867. But since the correct answer hinges on people knowing those dates, this is much too hard for a 6-point question. I think you ought to consider a replacement question. (Although, since I got it right...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Several questions/comments: How fussy are you going to be WRT Registry of Motor Vehicles vs. Department of Motor Vehicles? Different states call it different things and I don't know what CA calls it. For the 8-pointer, are you looking for a German word? Could it be "uber"? I am a life-long, practici...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 2 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Again, since cryptic crosswords have "their own rules," it would have been extremely helpful here to mention it might be an anagram, or a word hidden within a larger phrase, etc. Without that hint, I was able to guess at two of the five based on other elements of the clue, and had zero idea what th...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 2 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Negative points for me today. I was all set to say Aspen, when Durango popped into my head. My coin flip between Cimmaron and Cavalcade came up wrong. And I took a guess with Lark -- should have been Skylark.

Also, Bacon = Clams.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 2 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

What an idiot I am. For the NYC landmark I was coin-flipping between the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower. I didn't really think the Empire State Building was a National Heritage site, but I figured the Freedom Tower was too new to have a replica in Las Vegas. The Statue of Liberty never ...
