Enjoyed the puzzle but haven't the faintest idea what was the connection between the five I got!

That is a great theme. Plus, you used a lot of your background to integrate the answers. WOW. Very deep!

I definitely enjoyed the WP, but like Berylm, don't get the Decalog connection. Please explain after the WP solving ends. Thanks!

Yessss! Opening that message was almost as good as a WTH green screen!

Sorry about that, #2 - how many moves, if you don't mind me asking?

Sure like to see 'em all, Barry.

Too erudite for me.

Hey, Odile is the religious one.

Oh, I did understand ten commandments from the beginning, but I didn't follow the numbers.

Great concept. Not easy to solve but I was fortunate to detect he theme early on.
Kept me on my toes [all ten of them].
The clues were helpful, so thanks to Barry for a fine job of writing.
