Question

Posted · Report post

1. It’s a ritual to shake up soda-pop in England. (9)

2. The ball player left his card in a locker. (8)

3. 600 Little Rock Place exists, father. (5)

4. Small cars aim for the industrial group. (8)

5. A racist left pick-up to check piece. (6)

6. A non-believer is puzzled at this energy. (7)

7. Shoot 500 with half joking Nirvana front man. (6)

8. The leader is not failing for some reason after the bubble burst. (4)

9. The brother’s house was finally closed after an evil beast ate one of them. (9)

10. I am including some initial length to my submission. (5)

These are probably pretty easy. The number in parentheses is how many letters. These may not be like other POW puzzles that I have seen here. These are more like Cryptic Crossword clues.

On second thought never mind.

If you read the unedited post it will work either way.

Maybe exists=IS

father=DAD or PA

either way these are crazy hard, I am seriously struggling but these are my fave kinds of puzzles

Try writing 600 out in words.

exist = is = "="

I kind of have to give the part of this one since I sort of screwed #3 up Im thinking I should have worded it

600 little rock's place father.

9. The brother’s house was finally closed after an evil beast ate one of them. (9)

monastary

finally closed (closed suggests last letter) -> y

evil beast = monster

monster "ate one of them" -> monster surrounds "a" ->monaster

y "after" monaster -> monastery

5. A racist left pick-up to check piece. (6)

Not as sure of this one as I was of the others.

bishop

a racist left = bias - a = bis

pick-up = hop

bishop = check piece (chess piece)

You got the word

racist left, bias - the left side of the word = BI

pick up = SHOP (according to the thesaurus)

check piece = chess indeed

Keep it up Dudley Dude you are on a roll! :)

10. I am including some initial length to my submission. (5)

Islam

I am including ([some initial = s] + [length = l]) = I am including sl = Islam

submission = Islam (one of the translations of Islam)

Sorry PG that is wrong.

These type usally have two parts:

a clue and a riddle...but you have to figure out which is which.

For example

6. A non-believer is puzzled at this energy.

"A non-believer" is the clue

"puzzled at this energy" is the riddle.

Much better...

Buddha--shoot = bud as in flower, 500=D roman numerals, and half joke = ha(ha)

Edit: got the clue number wrong the first time
