welcomeBy 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! happydance

Next one:
Minced meat: hit in hamburgers, per number study (11) one "e"

Nice! The direct is obvious, but should there not

I keep coming back to the word "verity" being very containing it, but cannot fully justify the answer: "verily" seems to fit the direct, but I cannot see how we arrive at that answer.

Otherwise I'm stumped! smile

it doesn't do any of us any harm to have the brain cells stretched a little extra by the odd goof (aka Denis)! lol

Actually, you could have used that as a clue in one of those (for me) impossibly intellectual puzzles where clues and/or answers contain deliberate typos.

Emboldened by my being able to answer in the other thread, here goes...

I think it's Gold but I have one piece that is not fitting.

said to = told

horse feed = oat(s)

eat - remove

Goat + told - oat = Gtold think

What makes more sense is

Goat + (4 letter word starting with s) - oats = THE ANSWER

but I can't come up with a good 4 letter synonym to "said to" that starts with s and when replaced by g makes a word.

Please let me know if this kind of discussion is okay or if I should stick to just trying an answer.

Added: I forgot that the clue must indicate the answer as well so I guess Gold is out. Thanks for bearing with my newbie stumblings.

First day hint: the direct for 1 is on the right and the man-eater has no legs, while the answer to 2 would have four legs. smile

Well, on the basis that you must be haring along and solving #2, the next hint is that the first letters of the two word answer of #1 are L and S. wink

What d'heck does it ALL mean?

direct = those who never look sharp (= tortoises)?

But "k shar" (shark, tail first) is cute.
