Three On A Match

185 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hey all - here's how it (hopefully) works.

There should always be a group of three words, short phrases, maybe numbers, etc. that have a common thread/leitmotif followed by - _____.

The answerer replaces the _____ with their response as to what the connection between the three clues is and enters the next threesome whose first entry must also "fit" the previous category followed by the - _____. This should all be in the same post so when answering you must have your next "Three on a Match" ready to go.

Examples and starting it off -

American, Bush, 20,000 - Leagues

Little, Ring, Lady - Fingers

Thumb, Cat, Cruise - Toms

Turkey, Henry the Great, Beam - Bourbons

Jack, Crown, Pail - _____

{What if we're wrong?}

Am hoping there does not necessarily have to be a correct answer and cleverness in both answers and matches will be sufficient reward. Maybe the creater of an answered clue might want to give some insight into their original idea, especially if different. As in, "yep, parts of the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. nailed it mo." still early and open to any thoughts, suggestions, evolving directions.

@ maurice - was going for words that end in a number but see your connection to at least two of my three - lasix/dog??? - but all's good.

...but I think we're missing a key part of the challenge. The first word of the new set of three must also fit the answer to the prior set? Or is very possible I'm just a little thick today.

Ahh I see now...misread the rules. Yes that adds a bit to the challenge.

Lasix is a dog heart medicine.

Ok, pg...nail my last one and then start it up right. Also mayhaps bnolding the first clue will make it obvious what we're trying to do.

So form should be:

A, B, C - Letters

Jay, Robin, Swan - ____

????
