Pretty sure that’s not a bishop piece. If it is then it’s certainly not a usual one with a distinctive notch.

The notch isn't universally used. I don't think I've ever seen it in central/eastern Europe.

Strictly speaking, that's technically is a satellite in the sense that it does orbit a celestial body, but it's actually a Soyuz spacecraft.

Pinwheel is a whole new word for me. (*Breaks into song*). I tried 'toy windmill', 'spinny thing', etc...

My brother used to watch a kid's show called Pinwheel when he was little, so I broke into song too..... Apparently I still know the theme song... I didn't need those brain cells for anything useful. cool, cool.

I tried for the longest to remember the word "shuriken" and failed. A bit disappointed that I had to google it in the end. I mean that the answer is given as "throwing star" and I still didn't know the word I was looking for.

Perhaps allow a little flexibility on the spelling of Rolodex. I tried many variations and got as close as Roladex. Bah!

Rolodex is an American term. Outside the US 'card index' is the usual term.

Could you accept "poinsetta"? I've only heard it spoken and pronounced as such (apparently a valid pronunciation!)

that is definitely not an amphitheatre, but just a theatre. in fact, the name identifies a theatre which has places by both sides (amphi- = "around to" but also "both") while the picture shows clearly a single side theatre (theatron in greek). Properly, an amphitheatre is the Colosseum of Rome (or the ones you can find still standing in Verona, Capua, Arles, Nimes)

I don't think it's unreasonable to add "block and tackle" as an alternative answer to pulley. Whaddaya say?

Sure looks like block & tackle to me

I think to be a proper block and tackle, two pulleys are required. Since we only see one it can't be a block and tackle, but that is awfully nitpicky.

Seeing as the chain wraps around, goes down and comes back up to go around the pulley again, it's probably a block and tackle.

I'd add hoist as well, in my limited world it stops becoming a pulley when the rope is replaced by a cable or chain. I know they are still pulleys but hoist infers a more industrial application as does the rusted chain in the picture.

It's not an amphitheatre, if it doesn't go all the way around. They got it wrong on the wikimedia-commons page as well.
