A tough game with relatively less participation in setting and voting compared to the last one . We received 19 entries from 12 setters in all. Supriya shortlisted 7 based on the number of entries ( we do 10 if we receive > 20 entries )

Containers were the most popular choice of our setters and charades and telescopics seemed to be the favoured second choice.

We received just 16 votes for this game which was a tad disappointing.

Here is the summary of the votes received

The bronze goes to Kaustav , silver to Heidi for the lovely telescopic around the Holy Bible and the gold goes to Sridhar’s lovely DD taking off on the two meanings of BLESSED.

    Dear Aashwina Mouli,
    My entry seems to have an error in the definition area. I might have wrongly given ASSEMBLED[-ma} as definition instead of HOLY.
    Can you please correct this?
    Thanks in advance and regards,
    Kolluru Koteswara Rao
