BARB1111'S PHILADELPHIA QUIZ

I bailed on this due to a spelling error which messed me up so fair warning. I've sent in a ticket.

The big spelling error has been fixed. Kim, post a ticket if you'd like a reset.

Oops! Sent it as well....the answer flowed right off my fingers, and into a three-move penalty.

An excellent overview of the town and its place in American culture.

fun and informative puzzle - had one I was sure of and thought I'd gotten in a no move - but alas - learned new stuff!

I'd be interested to know what other people thought about the 'list' formatting in the WP.
Very much not my personal cup of tea; no way to work out one word from the last, and short of googling philadelphia heroes/drunk baseball players or whatever the category is, no subtle way to work it out.'But I realize this might just be my view; I do recall that there used to be many more of this sort of wp than there are now....are people happy about that?

Really tough one. Googling was pretty useless and we know zip. Learned something. Good puzzle.

ooppss...lol....well, I guess that is all I had to say



No, I don't mind the lists in measure. It helps if they are all names or clauses the same word length, though.

Googling will not help with my upcoming WP - unless you can google my police records.

For me it was hard as I know very little about the subject - but I persevered and really enjoyed and quite pleased with my score - thank you

Very enjoyable. Being from PA originally, loved it! Did get messed up with the spelling problem, but still found it interesting and it really made me think a lot.

I really enjoyed this WP, and the list format doesn't bother me at all. I'm pretty sure I've seen other WPs like this in the short time I've been here.

I haven't visited Philly in awhile but live only about 40 minutes away. Mainly I've gone to museums and South Street. Listened to a salsa band once.

Anyway, I learned some stuff with this WP and had fun along the way, thanks!

Yes, I enjoyed the word puzzle. And, no, list WP's don't bother me.

Thanks everyone. I am glad that you liked it and my sincerest apologies for the spelling error. I guess my fine-tooth comb needs to be replaced.
