Care for a clue game? I do. No prizes. No ballots. More a parade of ideas, with clues to chew and solve as we roll. The theme relies on those seven letters that boast an enclosed space in their composition: ABDOPQR.
What words can you make from these exclusively? ODD is one. DODO makes two. While BOOBOO and BOOB can both mean bungles. But just to lend our game some bite, what say we clue any candidate – with definition and wordplay – but refrain from providing a letter count? That way we have to solve your work, knowing the finite set of letters available.
Provide your byline and number to help tie any loose ends, like I’ve done here:
DA1 Stole Manx pig = BOA (boa/r)
DA2 Way-out medic zeroes in?
DA3 Giant school capsule
DA4 Contagious foursome unaffected by stand-up?
DA5 A gun backfired on explorer
