Gambling card game crossword gee

Postby Tomi В» 01.10.2019

.

This was the first Sunday puzzle in memory whose theme remained completely hidden to me, even after I finished. Anyway, to me, that means the theme was not well executed. I suppose I have vaguely heard of most of those folks, but Oh well.

Good morning solvers. For some sticky areas this one was a bit harder than most Sundays for me I wanted Hammer time, but you can't touch this.

I don't remember Perry Mason being a detective, but he did investigate on his own, so maybe it works. Enjoyed it and now I am off to enjoy the beautiful weather again. Clam bake offering would be better.

Agree with phillysolver, my first thought of Perry Mason is as a defense attorney. Nearly killed 'em! I feel this was the hardest of all the past week! Congrats to Brendan for a worthy challenge, but even more congrats to those who got it all right! I would rather forget this puzzle. I did get it all right, after a mighty struggle with the SE.

Started in the NW and just marched around in clockwise fashion until I was done. Lots of nice fresh fill, no clunky puns or odd jobs to contend with. Just one mystery year and a smattering of Latin to cope with. Missed a couple of the theme clues, but then the theme was not really helpful to solving the puzzle for me. Can't wait to check out Orange's new venture, and to hear what's next for Emily. Happy Sunday, all! Miriam, thanks for the reminder about the diagramless—I know it's by Byron Walden, but I forgot to print it out.

Good write-up, Rex especially the plug for my site—thanks for that! Why does Magnum P. Casino sometimes spelled "Cassino" , has nothing at all to do with casino gambling. A great game for two persons--I've been playing it with my dad for more than 50 years. In what we call regular casino, each spade does not count a point. Rather, getting the most spades counts as a single point. And regular casino is played to 21, not But "Spade Casino" is a known variant.

Clever theme. A saw mill is a supplier. Solid offering, though the theme really didn't help any. As as far as solving goes, average for a Sunday--caught on to the theme halfway through, which didn't always help--never made the connection between Fish and the Abe Vigoda role--my bad!

I think it's time to talk Heine. He's one of the best known German poets--so, bear with me if you're interested. Here are two Heine poems in a prose translation by me that may give you an idea of his range.

This motivated me to try my hand at translating German poems, among them these two by Heine]. His best-known poem is Die Loreley , of wich I'm of two minds. Then listen to what a master like Liszt can do with the same material. And boy, does Liszt ever hammer home, at the end, that she did it i. Glad to see Brian ENO make an appearance.

Also, he and David Byrne just put out a new album that I highly recommend. I didn't really get the theme - think most of those detectives were before my time. Mmm, steamers.

Getting the theme did nothing to help me along with this puzzle. Which is disappointing in a Sunday puzzle. They are cooked and hot. So this Sunday I did not prevail. I think we should bring all the teens back!

Geez, I hadn't thought of Gideon Fell for 30 years. I devoured the Carr novels when I was in high school and a quirkier detective you will never see! Maybe I will re-read some of the Dr Fell novels if I can find them. I didn't even see the theme until I was almost done as I ended up in the Deep South last as I struggled, typically, with this Quigley puzzle.

I always have trouble with BEQ and this week was no different. Obviously, the theme was of no help to me in solving this and I ground it out in just over an hour. It was the last section to fall. But I finally went on "clean-up patrol" and corrected all my mistakes but it was a struggle! Yes, Ulrich, I see what you mean about the hommage to Schubert.

That's a marvelous setting for the poem, and one which is new to me. But this didn't provide any help in solving the rest of the puzzle. And the SW took me forever. Seeing MUSE broke it open for me.

All in al, a fun puzzle. I must make it a habit now to google everything I think I remember from 50 years back--it's that long that I read my last Cristie.

This was fun although a bit less hip than the norm for BEQ. The theme became apparent fairly soon, but was no help at all in solving the puzzle.

I'd never heard of a couple of these detectives. When you turn your mind to the solution of a crime, you ferret out the truth.

The courtroom scenes almost always were just an excuse for the villain to confess when confronted with the truth--which, of course, never happens in a real courtroom.

I also liked this one but the theme was no help for me either. It was more medium-challenging for me mostly because of the SW. Seemed like a typical BEQ, i. I love reading mysteries, I caught on to the theme halfway through, and I even finished the whole puzzle, albeit slowly. And still, I am not happy. Somehow, it managed to feel like a slog, slow, laborious, and for me, no fun So, in an attempt to be constructive rather than snarky, I thought about why.

And I think it's the nature of this grid. There were not enough really long answers. Which means several things: a the long ones are not so easy to identify, unless you search and count; b there are too many short answers, and you wind up with a lot of crosswordese and c most importantly, you miss the rush of pleasure that you get from a long answer that not only reveals itself but opens up a whole area.

Sometimes I feel that there is a sweet spot of white to black that makes it more likely to have both beautiful grid design and pleasurable solving experience. I said the above and then went back to read the end of yesterday's commentary.

I remembered that there was a late night comment from a constructor, and found a response from Rex this am. It's an interesting exchange, may be of the kind that Orange's site will have? ChefBea, you may wish to check out my last comment yesterday re "dehiscer". END IT insisted on being "split". Overall a slow starter built up speed with each clue. Wanted to be Paul Drake, and marry Della Street. I'd file this one as tough but unrewarding. I managed to complete it without Google's help but with a sense of struggling uphill on my hands and knees.

De gustibus etc. I don't think so. I resisted this until there was clearly no alternative. BTW anonymous is right. This one wasn't a breeze, and it took slightly longer than my usual Sunday time, but overall, I enjoyed it. Crime fiction isn't a forte for me, so it took some working to get of few of the previously unknown detectives. They did some very clever songs on the show, and one CD they released and which I own was titled "The Animaniacs Faboo!

Did you know that cities had phone books before there were phones?

I did not know about the existence of directories before telephones. Yes, Ulrich, I see what you mean about the hommage to Schubert. It sounds wrong.

Must have been that Princeton education of mine. Always dangerous to do this click here a blog since he might not agree with what comes next! I appreciate, for example, a grid with few black spaces, but that sort of thing is of much less importance to me than the quality of clue-answer combos and if relevant the cleverness of the theme. Nearly killed 'em!
