Well Tibet is not a country...it really is a disputed region of China, but not independent. You could say region, area or disputed region....

Tibet used to be a country so maybe they were born when it was a country.

Only missed hijab. Great quiz, but in the future will you please refrain from adding any words which I do not know so I can get a perfect score? ( I'd hate to think I learned something new today.) ;-)

Strictly speaking, the Magic Flute is not a classic opera (although by general public it is widely regarded as such), but a singspiel, which means that the narrative passages between arias, ensembles and choruses, which in an opera proper would be sung in recitativo, are spoken. Maybe it would be better to chose another well known example?

I'm not familiar with "The Magic Flute." Is that a notable opera? I'm far from an expert, but I've never heard of it. Thankfully I was able to figure it out after I had filled in everything else by just thinking of 5 letter words that started and ended with the right letters.

Yes. It is by Mozart. I believe it was his last opera to premiere before his death.

it is die Zauberflöte. It is Mozart most famous and most performed opera, and yes it is a singspiel, but that is a genre/type of opera.

Jul 12, 2017
The answer has to start with the last letter of the word that preceded it ("drunk"). So it has to start with K or the rule of the game doesn't apply.

It took me forever to think of "tilde". Even though I know the word, I needed the first and last letters, plus 2 minutes to think of it. If it were above an ñ, I would have gotten it right away... but by itself it spurs thoughts of "about" or "approximately".

strictly speaking, modern haiku is not limited to 17 syllables... it can be up to 17, though few modern haikuists use that ...

Strictly speaking, modern haikus are not real haiku, but real haikus don't need to have 17 syllables. They need to have 17 "on" or morae. "On" can be loosely translated to "syllable", but traditional Japanese, as far as I know, doesn't have diphthongs like English. Meaning a word like "cowboy", which has two diphthongs, would actually count as four "on". So what I'm saying, long story short, is all the haikus you've written in English are probably wrong and therefore awful. Just awful.

How does the chain go from "banjo" to "urban"? Was scratching my head for a minute to work out what is "Not rural" that begins with "o"...Finally tried "urban" as it was the only possible answer but doesn't fit the chain.

Whoops. Fixed. I originally had the answer as bayou, but no matter how you define "bayou" people are guaranteed to whine. It's just one of those things. In any case, swapped out urban for Orion to fix the broken chain. Thanks for pointing this out.

It's a chain. So it has to start with a T since Egypt ends with a T.

Can't believe that more people know haiku than pink lady, relic, River Phoenix or zilch.
