Yay for 100% ! - Missed much much more on the others. Was it cheating that I wrote the words on paper next to each other? I just don't seem to be able to combine them just in my mind when there's so much space in between. Pure impossible.

Bravo for a top score! Not cheating at all to write it down on paper - sounds like it's a good method for you.

I just type the two clues into the answer box and then jumble them up until I see what they are meant to be. Same method as you really, Sillie.

I always do that thing where you write the letters in a circle. For some reason I nearly always see the anagram when I do that.

The blade of the knife is the entire metal part above the handle. The cutting edge is the edge, although I also tried grind, bevel, and choil. Didn't try blade because that did not fit the clue.

Blade, n. the flat cutting edge of a knife, saw or other tool or weapon. (Oxford Dictionaries).

"Induced sleep" is a pretty vague clue for coma.

Have to agree. Please find a way to convey that you are looking for a noun, not a verb.

Could you accept hang and boa. I missed both clues because i typed the words in singular form. I think its a reasonable request

If you read the clue carefully, you will see it is asking for a plural answer.

"Tropical fruit" is too broad a clue. There's lots of those.
+1
level 31
Dec 10, 2018
I did not like this quiz because many of its hints were too broad. "Tropical fruit" could mean the desired mango, but also banana, coconut, papaya, etc. It probably took a full minute for me to guess that one clue. 5-letter tropical fruit could have narrowed down the search some. Similar problem with COMA. I thought it was "sleep". Tried sleep, sleeping, knockout, knockedout. Either this quiz needs more precise hints, or more time.

Got all but nose. Might ve gotten it with a few seconds more (aklready tried sone and ones..) really pleased with that! Usually I get more towards the 50% right (cause most american centered questions, like brands or food products they have there, I am never able to get) well besides geography. The second day on jetpunk I knew all the countries, while the first try I was well, actually near 50% haha 89 I believe (second time allready 120 though)
