It's been about a year now, so maybe it's time for another round, eh? HOW THE GAME WORKS: I make up cryptic clues, the answers to which are the usernames of different PF members. If you think you've got the answer, post it, along with the explanation. Sometimes, the answer may not be the complete username. For instance, I might refer to Greg Bernhardt simply as Greg. Here's a very simple example: i. Sounds like a cosmic bomb Spoiler Answer: Astronuc Explanation: cosmic -> astro; bomb -> nuke, and nuc "sounds like" nuke And here's a very difficult one: ii. 102 Joule returned Spoiler Answer: Greg Explanation: 1 Joule = 107 erg, so 102 J = 109 erg = 1 Giga erg -> Gerg; turn it back (i.e., return it) to get Greg Most clues will be intermediate in difficulty to the above examples. Typical styles of crypticity will likely include anagrams, hidden clues, common abbreviations, Roman numerals, use of synonyms & homophones, and occasional sojourns into trivia. I will get some clues ready sometime later today, when I've got less work to do...probably after dinner. Let's make it around 9:30pm EST (about 9 hrs from the time of this post). In the meantime, please feel free to peruse earlier rounds (especially if you weren't around for them, and care to give this a shot ... moreso, if you are not terribly familiar with cryptic puzzles): Round I Round II Solutions to Round II Round III Solutions to Round III Any questions?
