PLAGUES WP

What? Is everyone at Denny's for the free breakfast? Tough but interesting puzzle.

While the puzzle was interesting, I found an error which I reported the the powers that be.

If it was on Plague #4, I found it too. I'll report it, just in case it's a different one.

Oh dear; I'm not sure what I did in the way of errors -- but sorry!

Looking at the scores I think that my editor may have been right when (s)he said (s)he thought it was on the hard side.

Please let me know if you thought it was to tough.

Someone has pointed out my mistake -- thank you. How stupid of me!
Sometimes one writes down a word and never checks it... I put in the name of the architect for our apartment instead of the rather better known name that should have appeared in the clue, and never spotted it. Yes they are only a couple of letters apart but...duh!!

The error has been corrected.

And, Barry, ahem....your editor is always right! LOL

So does that mean that players who do the quiz from this point forward wont see the problem but will get the correct name?

Is there any compensation for us who had the wrong the name - cost us some letters and reported the bug

Don't think I had the error puzzle, but I loved this one and was able to keep my points.

Pretty tough, but very interesting, informative, and fair, i.e., with a little work, all puzzles were "solvable." It was a well-timed and effective remedy to that plague of a WP last night.

Don't shy away from creating more difficult WPs! It's fun to be able to guess a phrase without any letters, but we don't want those ALL the time. It was challenging, but not at all to the point of being frustrating. Very fun WP.

Great puzzle, Barry! Clever theme - enjoyed trying to work them out from the clues. Thank you

I could quibble over some of the wording (though maybe that is actually perfectly good English English) and certainly over my own pigheadedness, but the bottom line is that it was a clever concept and extremely well engineered. Good job!

I'm glad the comments were so positive. I'm also pleased that most players kept most of their points; even the peope on the last but one page were nearly all over 4000 points --so everybody wins.
