    Hey! Due to a couple of PMs from hardcore puzzlers I thought that 3 years since quiz #16 it was time to bring this back for another outing.



    The point of the game is pretty simple. In a PM to me, answer each of the 10 questions below. There are no wrong answers. The point is to give the answer that you think the majority of the people will give.



    Try to think of the most popular answer.






    If you need to comment or clarify a question then do it in thread please. And if you could reply once you've sent a PM it'd keep the thread alive Thanks!



    Write your answers like this...



    1. answer
    2. answer
    3. answer


    Do not repeat the questions, no full-stops at the end of answers, no spaces between lines, no comments, no fancy list coding. Thanks.




    The game will end when we have 40 entrants or after 7 days, whichever comes first.

    Please, no full-stops after the answers and put a space in between the 1. and the answer ok?



    1. sun _______
    2. ________ world
    3. hand ______
    4. ________ potato
    5. special_____
    6. ________ time
    7. ______room
    8. ________ sauce
    9. paper_____
    10. _______ moon



    So copy and paste the numbers into your favourite editor; delete the lines, complete it and PM it to me.
    No need for dashs so if the question was ____ fall then answer 'rainfall' and not 'rain fall'.

    :) Thanks Ponster... :o Clarification, please? 'rainfall' is one word... if our answers (like a few in the puzzle might be) formed two words, like 'leaves fall' do you still want it formatted as one word without the space between, or two words with the space, or simply leave out the 'fall' (word given)?

    Without the hyphens please.

    "motherinlaw" instead of "mother-in-law"
