matt and emma: FANTASTIC PUZZLE! (4 months, 3 weeks ago)

J: Like others, I think the Top/Dog interchangeability spoils it, as you can burn lives on the last categories even if you select sets of words that fit the given criteria. (5 months, 1 week ago)

Thomas from Cambridge: Nailed it!
(1 year, 1 month ago)

Dan: Aren’t these made by Pixar (1 year, 1 month ago)

RH: Very good (1 year, 1 month ago)

Busker: complete puzzle (1 year, 3 months ago)

Donald: As others have pointed out, there is more than one unique solution - so not a good wall.

(1 year, 5 months ago)

Ruth: Well I liked it (1 year, 9 months ago)

MARS: Fun, but couldnt get 'top' (1 year, 10 months ago)

AvalancheMC: 3/10

A good board doesn't just include items that can fit in more than one category for the sake of it. A great board actually makes sure that those items might fit at first if the person solving the board establishes too broad of a connection.

This one doesn't.

And I'm not talking just about the Shrek line, I'm talking about the Victoria line as well. There are multiple such items here.

Kudos on the Boot line, tho. (1 year, 10 months ago)

Ian: (1 year, 11 months ago)

Mr Sehejpal: nicely played smithers... (2 years ago)

plz: top up????????????????????? (2 years, 1 month ago)

Darren: Good wall, pretty straightforward.
Some people obviously don't get the point that there are supposed to be words which fit into more than one category. It's what makes it more challenging to solve. (2 years, 1 month ago)

Ethan: loved it, thanks (2 years, 1 month ago)

Lou: Cartoon should be an acceptable answer (2 years, 2 months ago)

jenny: Good except Hat and Dog are arguably iterchangeable... (2 years, 2 months ago)

LucyK: Good grid. Liked to ambiguity with which category iron was in. (2 years, 3 months ago)

pockets: good grid (2 years, 4 months ago)

Brett: Too much crossover between Monopoly and Top. Multiple valid permutations. (2 years, 4 months ago)

Big Boy: Enjoyed this one - liked the cross overs. (2 years, 5 months ago)

Drake59: Good grid. Enjoyed it thoroughly although there is an error. The Monopoly pieces I put in pieces in Monopoly which it didn't accept and it should of the Top category Top Dog could also work as well as Top Hat, so nice red herring. All and all a hard grid to crack but not that hard. Thumbs up! (2 years, 5 months ago)

Ali: Not a good wall - not one unique solution. (2 years, 7 months ago)

Um: Can't "hat" and "dog" switch places? I think it's ambiguous for those two, since both fit both categories. (2 years, 8 months ago)

Al: Good fun puzzle. Monopoly is a classic! (2 years, 11 months ago)

j: kids movies (2 years, 11 months ago)

Al: Top up. Didn't get the top category. I didn't try hard enough. Got nine thought and enjoyed it. Good puzzle. (3 years, 1 month ago)

NL YCN N CT: Spent the best part of a minute fixating on the "cross" group thinking "Criss" was just a red herring for Kris (Kross - the hip hop duo) before the more obvious phrase (and correct spelling thereof!) dawned on me... good work sir! (3 years, 2 months ago)

Hannah: Very good! (3 years, 2 months ago)

Nina: quite good!!!!! :) (3 years, 2 months ago)
