Update by Sowmya, 12.00 Noon, Sunday 2nd July, 2017.
Another tough word this week, for which we received only 23 entries from 16 setters in all, but the quality of the clues was really good. Chanagrams proved to be the most popular choice for our setters this week as well, and there were 11 of these, Rare clue types included a composite anagram by Loks and an &lit by Bhalchandra.
Ashley’s clue exploited a clever homophone and though it did not make the shortlist, it got a creditable 4 votes in the “others’ list. Also, the &lit clue by Bhalchandra, which managed to pack two definitions in the word play was brilliant and deserves a special mention from our team.
Here is the summary of the votes received..
|Viresh Ratnakar||Harry Potter finally succeeds; battle ends Order||15|
|Viresh Ratnakar||Annoy, plea endlessly, and argue incoherently after half a drink||8|
|Chatur Vasi||Harass learner in competition with debate participant – right away!||7|
|Santha Ramachandran||Perhaps rebel has fever bug||11|
|Ganesh Nayak||Rebel shivering, beset by fever, perhaps plague||2|
|Kishore M. Rao||Attack group endlessly immersed in drink||9|
|Ajeesh||Shortly order beer bottles for Harry||20|
|Col Deepak Gopinath||Torment agitated rebel over a fit of shivering||5|
|Bhalchandra Pasupathy||Keep borders closed, bug real badly||4|
Ajeesh’s simple and elegant clue swept the competition with 20 votes. Viresh had two clues in the top 9, and his Harry Potter succeeded with 15 votes and the silver. Santha’s shivering rebel bagged the bronze with 11 votes.
Congratulations to Ajeesh, Viresh, Santha and to all others who made the shortlist. This clue is now in our 1AC Hall of Fame.
