welcome By way of reminder, the object of this game is to solve the clue presented by the previous poster and then set your own clue.

Anything from the (worldwide) crossword arena is acceptable by way of clue style, but if you stray from the pure path beware the scourge of... ...Pandora's WET NOODLE! scared

The puzzle could be an old favourite or something of your own making. Don't be shy: this is for everyone, not just the old hands!

There is nothing to prevent (say) a couple of related clues if offering a single clue cramps your style.

If there are multiple answers involved, there is no restriction against one person solving all and the solver of the final clue/part is the one who goes next.

Obviously you need to await confirmation of a correct answer before posting your own puzzle, but please then do so reasonably promptly: if having answered correctly you are not going to be able to set a follow-up clue within about the next 24 hours, please pass your turn to someone else so that the game does not stall.

To save the poor demented solvers from excessive brain damage , you should consider giving a hint as to letters when the question is set, unless the answer is relatively short/easy so that provision of a letter hint at the outset would spoil the sport!

If no-one is biting within about 24 hours you are encouraged to start dropping additional hints.

To try to give everyone a fair crack of the whip, the immediately previous setter is asked not to post a solution to the current clue within the first 24 hours.

The weighty trophy to be passed to whoever successfully solves each clue is the jewel-encrusted World Clue Federation Championship Belt ===[**WCF**]===

Constructive criticism and cheerful badinage are to be expected,
not to mention a certain amount of national rivalry, but above all, have a bit of fun! sherlock

Here we go...

Ahhh geeee....I have a good memory, but it's short!

If I had to bet the farm on how many years ago, I'd say 2.

I'm pretty sure at the time that it was considered ok to use
"with" this way (example):
"flyer with color" to clue "red bird"
(no other "position indicator" required...)

I know you have an excellent memory, especially when it comes to past cryptics. Sorry this one didn't come back to you.

I liked Sherlock's cryptic and thought "with" worked well as a container indicator. Sometimes it's all in the way one is worded. smile

I agree, Lex. Surprisingly, the first word you see when looking up clone is "cell". It's a definition, not a synonym. Guess we'll have to let it slide. This time. evil

Yes Denis, but if you read the rest of the definition it is only a cell (or group of cells or organism) when descended from common ancestry or otherwise replicated.

Guilty as charged of laziness: as soon as I saw
cell followed by comma, didn't look at remainder..

So I guess "better" would be:
