Far-fetched. Who uses a saw for fighting
Jun 04, 2008

Maybe it is too early in the A.M. for my brain, but I had a hard time and only got a few. I really enjoyed it and hope to see some more like this one.

LOL, but too early in the morning for me to get this one, very clever!!!!
Jun 04, 2008

Pretty tough! And BTW - I don't know anyone who pronounces Bern "burn". It's b̥ɛrn
Jun 04, 2008

Extremely difficult for me. Guess you have to know the correct names to get it, and since I don't, I didn't.
Jun 04, 2008

very good teaser ... only got a few but still enhoyed it
Jun 04, 2008

fun quiz.
I do agree that you need an American accent in order to get a couple of those, and you also need the Americanized spellings and shortened versions of some of the Franciso de Quito, etc.
Jun 04, 2008

Really enjoyable teaser - only got about 4 of the answers but really enjoyed!

1) This capital is a recently opened store for cooked meats. New Delhi
2) This capital is plant-covered bovine. Mos cow
3) This capital is a tool used for fighting. War saw
4) This capital is a royal weight. Kings ton
5) This capital is a cheer for a body of water. Bei rut
6) This capital is the {legendary}[?] vehicle graveyard. Khar toum
7) This capital is something that annoys a religious figure. Buda pest
This capital is a basic[important] digit. Qui to
9) This capital is something you [might] get from the sun. Bern
10) This capital is a score for a ringer. Bel grade

I had trouble with the last one until I re-thought both ringer and score. Clues 6 and 8 (and 9) could be better written as I've shown to make them more clear and honest.

Well done.

Was able to get all but Khartoum and
Got Bern with a bit of a leap in its pronunciation. I like others have never heard it said "burn".
Jun 04, 2014

I did not do very well on this one.
Jun 04, 2014

Missed three of them. I'm surprised I did that good.
Jun 06, 2017

I did horrible on this, but really enjoyed reading over the answers. A Helpful Hint of maybe the country would have been nice.
