Hmm, since JK has 29 correct, that means only one more to go. I wonder just which one that is? Maybe I could help, ahem, cough, cough.

Cool Cool
I'll try to join without competing, cause I already got 2 free games from AP.
Not sure I will find 10 answers anyway scratch

Ditto here. I already won a game here, so I'm not participating this time, but I'll be back for the next tourney! Smile
This is my way of saying "This puzzle is hard as hell and I have no idea how to solve it" and maintain my reputation at the same time... lol!

Mrs Gelert helped me do the drawing - not that it was that difficult with four people getting more than 10 'equations' correct. lol!

Anyway, thanks for competing, and congrats to everyone who got any of these right. cheers

I know they're not easy but, once you get the hang of them, they're easier than you think.

So, next time - and there will be a next time Twisted Evil - have a go. Even if just for fun if you don't want the prize on offer.

AND, next time - sorry hatshepsut! - I promise to run the contest when our most invaluable Lady Pharaoh doesn't have her computer in bits. I'm so sorry to hear you've lost all that data. You must be distraught. I would be. Thankfully, my external hard drive provides me with some semblance of backup.

Anyway ........... drrrrrrrrrrrrum roll!! ............. the drawing has been completed, and the tombola has creaked under the strain ........... AND .................. the winner of a spankingly new Lost Horizon is .............

All that remains is for you to tell me where I should send the game to. Send me a private message and I'll get it despatched asap.

Hey! Give me a chance SuperE. The dust hasn't even settled yet! Smile Unfortunately life's own little conundrums sometimes have to take priority. Nevertheless, I'll put up all of the answers the first chance I get. Wink

hats, I hope that at least some of what you've lost is replaceable. Fingers crossed for you! silent

I see several I should have gotten, and many I just never would have guessed. For #2, I did look up cricket, but didn't find that term. Nevertheless, I did have a good time with it, Gelert. Thanks for the fun!

Congratulations, JK! That was very well done!

It was number 7 that kept me from perfection. I had never heard of the Beaufort scale....so I wasn't even close on what I was thinking.

As I sent some of the last few that I figured out to Gelert, it was amazing that the answers would pop in my head very late at night, after 11pm...while I was either watching television or getting ready for bed. Funny how the mind works!

Thanks everyone. That type of 'equation' quiz used to be quite popular on Sunday evenings in the pubs and inns around here.
