hmm.. UKG alright.. Parasu waits to see if Anantha relaxes the one grid a day rule..

Holding back (heavy heartedly) to see if Srividya posts an entry for this.

srividya said...

wow...cant believe the grid is still empty...is any1 playing this game besides me, parasu, sheece and niru ?

srividya said...

i have a possible winner

isochor
colloquialisms
sausage

all 3 words are legit and i checked em out :-)

anantha for some strange reason i found this grid more diff than any b4... as i could not find a word starting with I for the 14 letter which would have been more ideal and easy i guess - anyone got one?

Sheece said...

well i had arrived at

itemize
mnemotechnists (wasn't sure if mnemotechnists would be accepted)

Sheece said...

but i felt it would be the first word, which would start with an I, coz there was no clue for tht...

srividya said...

mnemotechnists - not being accepted by my dictionary. u wont believe how many words i had to go thro b4 hittin on colloquialisms - a valid word.

this should not be a ukg grid is my feel...perhaps of course anantha has a simpler word i totally missed

are u guys also into anantha's other brain child - funravel? its simpler....

srividya said...

oh and anantha - pls explain the arcane dec 31 curtains comment u had made earlier...

anantha said...

sri vidya gets it. she earns a point for her efforts...there's nothing arcane about what i said. it's what it is.

parasu said...

isochor = 87
colloquialisms = 177
hopsack = 73

Were the ones that I had come up with. I think this grid is a fair UKG one.. was comparatively quick to solve.

srividya said...

kowtow to ur quickness parasu..hit upon colloq only a full hour later...

and parasu... i am a gourmand remember..obviously i am gonna think of sausages (b4 hopsack)- tho i admit am a veggie and hv never tasted one b4 :-)

parasu said...

kowtow.. thats a cool word..

Srividya, do you own a arcane word dictionary or something? I get to learn new words that I would not come across otherwise I guess. For instance, no way I am gonna be reading georgette heyer or stumble upon epris. :)

There must be veggie sausages out there somewhere. They have simulated meat for almost everything nowadays. Btw, Imma vegetarian too.

knew it was a mistake to quote heyer...to a bunch of gorillas :-)dont make me regret it further!

kowtow..arcane word dic - nah - anantha's lateral clue for his alternate game (funravel) so top of mind, Dont miss out on it...its more brain work and has some laterateness (what the devil is the noun form) :-)

and anantha...dont give out dire warnings such as curtains etc - u have fame galore - while i didnt participate (not that i stood a chance) - have def heard of the ripples cluenatic created. how can u abandon us - its ur karma methinks towards us less cerebral folks :-)

in case u r leaving us for some reasons (what they r i cant imagine) - be assured of a handsome virtual tombstone from me

parasu said...

Funravel.. did not notice that till now.. Will keep an eye out on that as well from now.
