I like these too. Because: 1) they are easy, 2) when there's a word you don't get right away knowing the start and the finish helps a lot and you usually have time to figure it out

While the following answer to 'nohing' must start with a K, I think it is a bad hint because unlike many of the other choices, there are MANY words that begin with the letter 'b' and mean nothing. Bupkis, barren, bare, etc. I went through all three of those answers and several more before I got blank from working backwards from the succeeding answers.

So you couldn't come up with a 5-letter word that started with "B" and was synonymous with "nothing". In other words, you drew a...(wait for it)....blank?

I don't think blank = nothing.

They can both be adjectives, but with different meanings ("a nothingblank job" / "a blanknothing piece of paper").

Other than that, blank is a noun or a verb, and nothing is a pronoun or adverb.

I did get it though, because they are very similar.

I first thought,well you can get stung and you get a bump then thought of hive and typed hives haha then I thought ow no, that is connected with bees but in a different way. I was only thinking of what happens/what you get when you get stung. And looking for a word for that. (Then is was like...d'ohhh ofcourse !)

yay, I got them all :) 2+mins left even. not often I get 100% second time this week now. I was actually surprised at the average scored. usually I am right around or slightly above average. But the average for this one is quite a bit lower (24/32) so I wonder what the reason is. If/why it was extra hard for others or less so for me. It is not a specefic subject I am good at or something. So the difference with the average public surprised me (more than my personal score)

Ah... come to think of it, after reading the comments. Maybe most didnt read instructions? About it being a chain. Not that for many I needed the letters. But still. (tokyo, tango (several 5 letter ones), blank, kanji, and yemen (as others have stated, not the only 5 letter option). But well then after some tries I still would ve gotten tango and yemen. (and good chance for tokyo)

I feel like 'empty' or 'unmarked' would be a better clue for 'blank.' Blank is usually an adjective, so having the noun 'nothing' as the clue can be misleading.

Blank is an interesting one, I would have never guessed it with the clue nothing. If I could make a suggestion it would be that "empty" or "left out" may be a better clue.
