going by everyone's performance, i am not sure if this puzzle will be cracked. it is not at all lateral. quite straight. but i have full faith in the abilities of the players here. in 3 days, i think i wud have to announce the results of this grid. you can always give it a shot after 11, 2morrow, and try and prove me wrong.

pbzeppelin said...

ahem oh lord...does straight means we have no other clue than the A part? They can even be proper nouns is it?

If so think it is a bigger bite than i can chew... hope at least Parasu cracks it

parasu said...

Sorry folks was out for a while.. evil forces kept me away from the comp for a while there..

Mr. Anantha, my turn is coming soon??? I thought it already came day before when I had to take that LKG vexedly,vyingly grid to keep things moving???

Its gonna be tough to maintain this 2 point slender lead against Quickdraw McGraw-ine (sorry could not come up with anything better there ;))

Well, if we were to talk rules, Mr. Anantha said, if he posts 3 grids, then they will be of different diffuculty levels, and he broke that the day he sent out 3 UG grids in a single day..

Most probably Anantha would quote Mel Brooks and say "It's good to be king". If rules are meant to be broken, then so be it :)

your honour, this boy parasu will make a good lawyer :-)

parasu said...

Thank you my lord,

In my defense, I would like to state that this grid will crack.

If there are no takers by 11 PM tommorow, then Parasu will post his answer. He shall leave no stone unturned to covet those five points ;)

i thot this was going to keep me up all night. but i can actually see an episode of Rome before i am off to sleep. Sigh!

once i cracked amethyst, the puzzle suddenly turned into a playschool puzzle.

gemstones, aren't they?

amethyst
tourmaline
aquamarine
alexandrite

i think i am going to go and buy myself an alexandrite...

Sheece said...

ahh parasu that was a wicked clue... but uski naubat nahi aayi...

parasu said...

ahh crap, there goes my turned stones :)

Sheece, you got that right.

pbzeppelin said...

oho... pppl i just cracked it myself... got stupidly side tracked by antimony which fit too! Parasu are u demented to give out that clue - not that any of us saw it - was hopin sheece wd sleep/be kidnapped till 11 tomorrow night giving me a chance... great work sheece :)

anantha said...

good work, sheece. since this is a first fiver for you, i shall not nitpick. the connect is birthstones and not gemstones. but all birthstones are gemstones, so i have to give this to you.
