You probably have the same brands in stock – the talismanic syllables of winter. So as the cold weather bites, or a cold virus invades, let’s have some wordplay with the Big Four of Flu-Fighting, seeing who can contrive the chillingest clues. (Plus two bonus bathroom brands.)
This is a group-vote Storm, so choose an alias linked to colds or coldness. (I’ll be part of the congestion as well.) No need for defintions of course, just your dazzling best at twisting the letters into lyricism. Here are the four:
Please provide the word befor each wordplay burst, like so:
CODRAL: Firm rejected fat bonus
NUROFEN: Sister admits foreplay?
Render your best for the Big Four, and then choose two more bathroom brands (shampoos, soaps, lotions, ointments, common pharmaceuticals…) to complete a six-pack of stealth. Post these six (with brands and clues) under your cold alias, before Thursday 9pm.
On Friday we swing into voting, with 6 votes to cast in total, namely 3 votes across the Big Four, and 3 votes across the Bonus Words (with 3 votes for best in both cases, followed by 2 points and one).
To be extra clear, if you adore two NUROFEN clues, then that’s fine to afford 3 and 2 points to them, with one vote left to cast anywhere else among the Big Four. Maybe you rate three CODRAL clues as the best – that’s fine too. (For the bonus brands, if several players choose PANTENE, or DETTOL, or BAND-AID, that’s likewise kosher. Just pick the 3 best clues across the board.)
One, two, ah-choo. Let’s shplay, and see who wins by a runny nose.
