welcome By way of reminder, the object of this game is to solve (and briefly explain) 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 too far from the pure path beware the scourge of... Pandora's WET NOODLE! eek witch

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!

For those unfamiliar with crossword clues who want to give it a try, there is plenty of guidance online and a quite entertaining and instructive book (not just for beginners) available from amazon http://www.amazon.com/The-Times-Crack-Cryptic-Crosswords/dp/0007546521/ref=dp_ob_image_bk and no doubt elsewhere, and for those who like British Crosswords you may like to try these (which are free): http://www.theguardian.com/crosswords and https://www.ft.com/crossword.

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 18 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 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 should start dropping additional hints, and 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.

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. dance

The weighty trophy to be passed to whoever solves your clue is the jewel-encrusted CanukDenis Memorial Championship Belt
===[**CDM**]=== praise

This thread is so named in honour of our late dear friend Denis Borris (aka CanukDenis) who was an ever cheerful and quick-witted presence on this forum, posting many an iffy crypt just to stir the pot, and intrigued by all things linguistic, mathematical and beyond.
RIP CD - we hold you in our hearts as we play on!

Lex, I started Baba Is You last night. Didn't get far before I got stuck, had an idea as I was waking up this morning and went straight to the computer. The idea worked, thank goodness, and I'm sure that was my first of many such mornings. This is my favorite kind of game - the kind you keep thinking about when you're not actually playing it. So simple, so clever. wave

Sue, I am delighted that you are enjoying Baba: I was sure it was likely to appeal to your puzzle-addled brain, and I am glad to see that Cheryl is also now tempted. For me this is most fulfilling game in several years, fully deserving all the awards it has gathered so far, and the creator is nothing short of a genius! devilchili

You may like to look at his website and blog https://www.hempuli.com/

After over six months I have completed 213 levels and there must be at least another 10 (some levels are hidden until earlier ones are completed, and even then it can be part of one level to find another...) - several took more than 24 hrs head-scratching and a couple of times I left it for a week or so: I must admit to using a walkthrough on a handful of occasions (although that rather defeats the point), but more often, like you I would wake up with an idea which worked or at least generated another idea - great fun and very satisfying!

I found one particular walkthrough which provides a useful overview of the game and a series of hints rather than giving the whole show away https://www.keyofw.com/baba-is-hint/overworld.

...but back to Cheryl's clue - no idea yet... lol

Okay, here's my best guess:

avarice

a sin = a vice
overcomes = container ind.
a
miser ultimately = r

I'll be back with an answer in the morning if there are no takers by then.

Meanwhile, what level are you on in Baba and what platform are you playing on? Have you yet encountered "empty" and/or had to make two words to overlap? catrub

I'm on Tiny Pond. I was mistaken about being on level 7 last week. That was only within the first section.

I'm playing on Win 10. Have not yet encountered "empty" or made two words overlap! eek

It might take me a while to get to those things. I appreciate the sites you mentioned but I won't look at them. Once I break that barrier, it's too easy for me to keep doing so. smile

cannabis = pot, I think but I am struggling a liitle with the justification - can (prison) + nab (arrest) + is seems on the right lines but not quite there...! headscratch

Correct answer, Lex! yes

in is the container indicator. Nab (arrest) contained in can (prison) is.

Early hints:

1. Double definition
2. "Brace" is used as a noun, not a verb
3. US Masters winner from the '90s

Ah - yet another Rog-up I'm afraid. The answer was "couples" but the plural of "brace" (meaning a couple) is just "brace" not "braces" so bad clue oops

Substitute clue:

Wilt and fall, having nothing (5) - direct on the left

Stephen's Sausage Roll is not as cute as Baba, but devilish in a similarly fun way (and nearly as likely to be grounds for divorce!): I only knew of it because Steam was offering it as a bundle with Baba... lol
