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 hardwall , you should consider revealing one letter of the answer (in any position) when the question is set, unless the answer is very 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 probably need 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 solves your 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!

The current incumbent, Sherlock will be posting the next clue shortly...

Well, Harpagon is a ficticious miser, even if
dictionary.com only shows:
Harpagon
Har"pa*gon\, n. [L. harpago, Gr. ? hook, rake.] A grappling iron. [Obs.]

Not sure, but I believe that since a miser, but
not a definition of miser, then this is required:
Miser, for one, ...

Pretty sure I got a taste of the wet noodle for
a similar sin(s) in the past !!

I certainly have - gratefully received! wink

Here are two (not connected apart from each answer containing one e) from a recent paper which amused us, one of them giving Brits an advantage:

1. Middle aged and single (5-4)

2. Penny's relationship with Bob near to end of engagement produced drama (7,5)

Finally cracked number 1 (I think):

1. Forty-five (as in a 45 rpm single)

2. 1/12 (12 pennies in a bob) + nigh (close to) + T (end of engagement) -> Twelfth Night

Love that second one! praise

Given that it's Denis, it is not impossible that the answer is:

L(OK)E

an alternative spelling of LOKI, the Norse spirit of mischief. Also 'assume' has to = OK.

This clue would be worth multiple wet noodles, but as I said, it's Denis smile smile
