lorna: It's hard to strike a chord with everybody- although it wasn't my cup of tea exactly and I had no chance of solving this, I appreciate that when people write what they know it allows for more variety of grids, and sometimes you learn something (vexillology- great word!) Even a brilliantly constructed grid can be dragged down, I feel, by having 1 or more cliched or overused categories, so thanks for being a bit different :) (4 days, 16 hours ago)

Baculus: The electronic musicians were Aphex Twin, The Orb, The Chemical Brothers, and Boards of Canada. Perhaps my occupation as a DJ makes me biased, but those 4 are titans of the genre that are very reasonable to ask about. The countries were rather tricky, I admit. My intent was for the flag group to be the easier one- then again, I am a vexillology nerd, so perhaps I should not have assumed that flags would be a go-to avenue for every player.

j: Have to echo these comments, I managed to solve the grid through pure luck, airlines are doable and the 2 color flag countries was a total whim guess that I'm frankly still surprised was correct. The other two, no shot (1 week, 4 days ago)

Horatio: Sorry, this is a really poor grid. Thanks so much for going to the effort to compile it, but I agree with Joe - nobody will get the 90s electronic groups, 2 colour flags, maybe just about, the countries with a parliamentary system there are just simply too many of them, again I bet nobody gets this correct apart from by luck, and the airlines was doable, but Virgin is Virgin Atlantic of course. Just too many flaws to be fun I am afraid. (1 week, 4 days ago)

Joe: Rubbish... words from 90s groups.. that's stupid.
The parliamentary system one is a bit crap too.

James: these grids with similar catagories always trip me up (1 week, 5 days ago)
