Here's a rivival of an old game from the old board.

I give you a cryptic clue to a word connected with Eastwood.  Like a crossword clue.

If you get the right answer you set the next one.  Only thing is the answer to yours has to start with the last letter of mine!

Always put the number of letters in the answer.

EG:  

Q - What Tuco was but couldn't read (5)

A - Idiot

Soooo!  The next answer starts with T.  Geddit.

Here goes - real clue.  Answer starts with T:
Quote
This illegal act is no lie.  (4)

Remember it starts with T has an Eastwood connection (an easy one too!).  You get it you post a new one that starts with the last letter.

Good luck :)

Turner and Hooch!  One of my favorite Clint movies!

This game makes me feel stupid.  Why does the answer begin with a T?  I'm so tried.  Or maybe I'm drunk.  Have I been drinking?  Whose toe is that?  Oh, it's mine.  Good night.

 ;D

The answer starts with T because the last aswer ended with T.  The answers all link together.  And that gives you a clue to the word - you have the cryptic, number of letters and first letter...

What could be easier?

The tough part is thinking of a clue. ::)

Here it is again in case you missed it:
Answer starts with T:

Sounds like it should be True crime, but only four letters, I guess I would say just "true."  Is that close?

Probably the last one I get right!  Unless they all stay easy. :)

Next one begins with the letter "E."

The Eiger would be all face, wouldn't it? :D

I'm happy I stumped you at least for a short while. ;D

Isn't anybody else going to join in?  Daisy's right, the hardest part is coming up with the riddle.  Maybe read The Hobbit and the scene with Gollum to get yourself in the mood.

It's an interesting game, it's just too bad that it's way over my head. ???

Nah. Too much thinking going on. And Im not good with riddles, which is sort of what this is.

Good idea though Daisy, just not my cup of coffee. (I know the saying is.... ah screw it Im tired.)

C'mon Nighty!  I'm sure you could always use the Bat-Computer to help... ;D

Doug - that was an excellent and tricky one!  Respect. ;)


This new one is easier to try and get others playing.

Well, the obvious guess would be Orang Utan but that should be (5-4) and I refuse to countenance the fact that Daisy could possibly have made a tiny little boo boo!

However, if it is an inadvertent 'typo' I guess I'd better post a new one.

 :-[ Whoops!  You are of course right, Red. ;D  Orang-utan is the most common spelling, but oran-utan is an acceptable, if less known, alternative.

However, I think your letter count should read (8, 10) not (8-10)?

I know it. But, since Daisy indicated she knew it first ... we'll give her a chance to post it first.
