    Started well and fell at the third hurdle. This one will take a little thinking.

    I tried starting at the beginning.
    Realised that wasn't going to work.
    Started again, in the middle, working backwards.
    Got a bit stuck.
    Went to the end, worked backwards.
    Nope.
    Middle outwards again.
    Alles uber der gaffen.
    I've worked as a relief milker so am familiar with some cattle breeds but not as familiar as I am now!

    I dropped anchors at the start, middle and end, then there was less to fill in, albeit they were harder to find :D

    I never count "The" unless someone specifically indicates they want to tbh or it's obvious they want it included

    I’ve hit plenty of brick walls in the few attempts I’ve made so far. Wondering if I should turn the computer on and open a spreadsheet. Notes on my phone is difficult.

    How long have I got?

    Well this changes EVERYTHING. And there I was thinking I at least had the end of it complete.
    I'm learning an awful lot about cattle and English premier league teams right now.

    I had two spreadsheets on the go :o


    And they still weren't enough, I had to resort to scribbles on an envelope (literally!) lying nearby.....

    Just watched that episode last night :D

    You and LeVar made me take the plunge into it really. Its brilliant


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭ Also Starring LeVar Burton


    With the amount of giving out and supposed struggling going on, I'm starting to think not a lot of people were on the same wavelength as me with my "obviously everyone is going to do it this way, you'd be mad not to" line of thinking...

    It's grand though, I'll be content with a moral victory in the end... :pac: :pac: :pac:

    Given the complete bottleneck in the middle (I wonder will there be any variety in answers there at all???), I'm absolutely fascinated to see how people got to it, and then got back out of it :D

    Well there are two answers in a row that can only have one specific answer as far as I can see. I could be wrong though.
    This raises two possibillities:
    1. Setting those questions together was a complete fluke, mere happenstance.
    2. Necro is an evil genius who purposely crafted those questions with the aim of driving us all round the twist.


    I know which option I believe ;)

    That he's a flukey bollocks that got lucky its actually possible and only realised after the fact that he should've tried out the game himself first?

    Yeah, that's what I think too... :D
