show!

ready, get set, go fish - sorry phoenixx, not the one. guess it must go on...

So - would the second group be Badminton (Bird, Match, Play)? or am I way off

well hey there sniju and welcome to the Den. Am always honored when a new member's first response is directed at one of my riddles/puzzles. In this case am also a little embarrassed. Your response is perfectly logical and right on track as to the flavor of these and as to my style. Was looking for a different match to these three tho. Well thought out, sorry.

Winners/Champions/Victory...oooh, maybe Parade?

hey t_mo - 'fraid none of those.

hey Dej Mar - nice to see you on this side of the site. six of the nine above match my intended answers. have edited your spoiler above, striking those that differ from mine. for your edification, each of the three sets of three, once answered will each yield another word; then those three should similarly give a final answer. well done.

hey Dej Mar - that completes round one and the middle of the second round offerings is also correct (tho the other two are perfectly logical). well done

Continuity?

nope

-- NON-SPOILER ALERT -- sounds like this one is different and may need a little hint.

Parity

~Continuity.

oh man, that's brilliant. much more so than my answer. can I just say yes and go on? guess not. that said, my answer does need a little bit of word play.
