In this game, the idea is to supply a crossword puzzle clue to an answer that is given. For example, if I gave you the word STAR, you might supply the following clues:
- Proxima Centauri
- Drummer Ingo
- George Clooney in “Oceans 11”
- Moroccan flag symbol
- Hollywood Boulevard sidewalk feature
A few rules:
a) One entry per poster, but it can contain up to five clues, as above.
b) NYT crossword puzzle rules regarding number and verb tense.
c) Ordinary everyday words only: no ERNEs, OONAs, ORTs, ONOs, or other typical crossword words when you need more vowels.
d) These rules are subject to change, as the game develops.
e) The games goes for 24 hours or thereabouts, depending when posters can be online.
f) Should twickster pop in, her word is final.
Okay, with all that said, here we go. The answer word is CAT.
ETA: and the poster of the last answer word selects their favorite clue, and the poster of that gets to post the next word. Sorry, I forgot to mention that.
