Hog is another word for pig or swine, a male pig is a boar.

Due to their common use as livestock, adult swine have gender specific names: the males are boars (or sometimes "hogs") and the females are sows. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pig

We raise swine, and in our region swine, pigs, and hogs are completely interchangeable, although we tend to lean to pigs as a term for the younger ones (shortened from piglets), and hogs as a term for the entire herd or sometimes just the older ones. Males are boars (not to be confused with wild boars which are a specific type of pig originally from Eurasia and were ancestors of today's domesticated hogs), females that have farrowed are sows, young females which have not farrowed are gilts, and castrated males (raised for meat) are barrows. I have never heard the term "hog" used to mean only a boar, but I have heard it used for a Harley-Davidson.

An adult male pig is a boar or a barrow. A hog can be male or female. I spent forever trying to figure out what city Chickboargo could be :/

There are also "Necco" wafers, so the clue for Manilla could also lead to "Monaco." Not more of a stretch than some of the others here...

I love these kind of quizzes, but you do need to fix "hog" vs. "boar", and just say another name for a pig, not a male pig. No pig farmer I know refers to the males of the group as hogs when separating by gender-- they're boars and sows. Hogs are what you butcher when they're mature.

Cat's sound is "miau" (or maybe in a bit more English transcription - something like "myaw") - listen to Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman in "Batman Returns", you'll know what I mean.

Right...she's "cat" woman. Not Kitten woman...kitten girl?...either way...cats say meow...kittens say mew. Perhaps i'll give it an update to clarify.

I understand the clue was different before, magical pokemon didnt get me anywhere, kitten sound would have! and i think mew works perfectly (unlike some other words for sound, that really doesnt work if you are from another language, when the word doest truely mimic the sound anymore, but has become more of a representation)

Anybody know Simon's cat? (I think it is great!) when I see/hear "mew" I cant help but think of that haha

You are correct. The version I had as a kid had little indents at the intersections and you used black and white marbles instead of the flat pieces. The indents kept you from accidentally knocking the pieces across the board. I have changed the clue.

The greek letters one is problematic, in the pronunciation of X (correct pronunciation would be more like "he") and in the confusion between P and R (due to not claryfing which alphabet is being used).
