Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 6, Day 1

Post by rjaguar3 » Mon Sep 04, 2017 9:04 am

We'll have a winner for Round 5 soon. (I'm still looking into some of the questions to determine whether to accept alternative answers or have a RQ.)

In the meantime, let's start the 6th and final round of the SHC regular season. Thanks to Clue Jungry for today's guest category. Thanks to everyone else who submitted requests for the other category.

On we go.

3: This Mexican dish, made with meats and cheeses rolled in cornmeal, is steamed in a corn husk or banana leaves

6: Approximately 70 million people speak this, an official language of Sri Lanka and Singapore

9: In a No. 1 song from 1965, The Byrds asked this title person to “play a song for me”
