GARRYBL'S OPPOSITES

while filling this in I see that the apostrophes in the clues have become question marks. And one of the clues has been truncated; I've sent in a help message so I hope this will be fixed soon.
sorry!

Barry

I just did it in a friend's account and I hope no one thinks that's unethical - he hardly ever does them and I can't do another one as Smoke for a week, or until Justin upgrades my new account, whichever comes first. Apologies if anyone takes exception.

Anyway, I loved the concept and thought it was very well done, though one phrase is still a mystery, so I'll hold my question for the end.

Thanks, Barry, I always knew you'd make excellent puzzles.

I agree with Smoke - really great puzzle - but I am a little "puzzled" by one of them too.

I was doing great on the first four, and then my final puzzle took me as many moves as the first four combined and cost me 600 points--and I still have no idea how the clue fits the puzzle. I will definitely want some enlightenment once this puzzle is done!

Too many "Whats?" on this one to say I liked it. Better luck next time Garry.

I got stuck on one phrase, but I'm sure that's no one's fault but my own. Thanks Barry.

I did okay on 3 - got the first one right off with the clue - 2 didn't quite get but was able to fill in and 2 completely clueless still...

Okay, it just occurred to me to Google the answer that made no sense to me, and now I know why it made no sense to me--it was about rugby, a sport about which I know absolutely nothing. No wonder I was in the dark!

Took me a couple to "get" it. But really fun puzzle. Thanks!

A couple were tougher than I intended.
One related to Rugby Union (a prop forward is a player in the front row). My English background was too much for me.

Another related to Under Milk Wood (larregyb is the setting -- and the clue was missing the REV for Llaregyb reversed to Bugger All)

And someone had problems with the fact that the home of the saints has a nickname --the big easy.

Was moving along right smartly until the wheels fell off on number 5. Rugby talk, eh (Canuck woman knows nothing about rugby)? That makes me feel better, thought I was just being stupid, or stupider than usual Good puzzle

Even I got the Big Easy -- and I'm not the brightest light bulb in the pack on that kind of puzzle.

Yeah, the Big Easy was, well, easy for me, but "prop backward" meant nothing--I got the "backward" part soon enough, but nothing that fit would go with it. And a question about rugby might as well have been one about particle physics as far as I was concerned. But hey, now I know one thing about rugby!

I was totally blindsided on "The Big Easy." First I thought of Saints Home as "New Orleans" --> "Old And something" then as "The Superdome" --> "The Sub Bowl"? Lost mondo points and moves.
