Yea these chains are nice :) I usually get 100% but sometimes miss 1 or 2. This time I didnt really know taro, but I still guessed correct from the letters :)

I'm not that good at these. Only got a few. I'm really surprised I got the Timbuktu question on my first try (Mali)

Is it bad that one of the many things I tried for the Polynesia question was "taco" before finally giving up?

I remember studying the Polynesian crop, and discovered alcohol within them. Yip, there was whisky in the taro....

If you're still wondering, I believe it's a reference to "Whiskey in the Jar", a song by Thin Lizzy and covered by Metallica

@Knaggs2001 - You mean a traditional Irish song that both Thin Lizzy and Metallica covered.

I'm pretty sure the official name of the city is St. Louis rather than "Saint" Louis. Everyone should know what you mean but it looks kinda funny.

Level 75
May 26, 2018
Yeah, that got me a little confused. At first I thought "What the heck is Saint Louis? Is that an island that I don't know?". Figured it out eventually though.

^Isn't "St." an abbreviation of "Saint"?

@divantilya, St. Louis is the official name, as stated in the link in martay's comment.

National Sport of Japan is not sumo, but Baseball

Level 74

Isn't that (baseball) just the most popular sport, as opposed to the official national sport?

Japan doesn't have an official national sport. Some countries do (which I find very odd) but for most of the rest it's basically just opinion.

Baseball doesn't have four letters or fit in the chain though.

Could 'taro' be removed from the quiz? It's the only one I didn't get.

Just joking! :) But honestly that was the only one I missed.

Only reason I got that is that I had enough time to start with "T- - O", replace the first - with a vowel, "a", and then start across my keyboard...Q, W, E, R...**DING, DING!** Verrrry fortunate.

I found the wording odd aswell, but I guess maybe previously it said skirt and got a lot of complaints (seen it in other threads)

Small, partially-wooded valley

possibly so but doesn't work with the clue before it. Not familiar with Dell. Is that what the song Farmer in the Dell was about?

It is indeed! It comes from the same Old English word that "dale" comes from, as in "over hill and dale."

I only got 'Taro' by having enough time to go 'T[vowel][whole alphabet]o' Got it on my third vowel.

Slightly odd that you didn't you start 'T[A][whole alphabet]O'...
