Did you type a connection that was correct but not get the points you deserved? If so, sorry. The system isn't perfect. Do give yourself the extra points mentally. (There's probably no need to comment about this, unless it's constructive.)
Sorry Jayem: Have to disagree also. If a more specific connection applies, then it has to be the 1 that counts. On the TV show I distinctly remember "Surnames of actresses in Mad Men" & "Editors of Punch Magazine" being solutions.
If a single word generic answer SURNAMES was accepted as an answer, the whole thing would descend into unsolvable farce.
Also, unique solutions would become a thing of the past.
e.g. G.1 = UK Prime Ministers, G.2 = Colours.
If G.1 contained BROWN, and SURNAMES was accepted as a solution, then Black, Green or White from G.2 could be swapped with BROWN. (5 years, 4 months ago)
grim: Jayem: I disagree. I mean, Only Connect walls frequently feature surnames which are not linked just by their being surnames. That is, for a category to be good, it should be specific, and therefore 'masculine names' is not a very good category.
I would never have gotten the REM connection, it's just knowledge I don't have. Is that the grid at fault, or me? Or a bit of both? I think these first names are too generic to make a good category, and surnames have been better (I still wouldn't have known them but might have been able to make a guess.)
Anyway. I'm overthinking. (5 years, 4 months ago)
Jayem: "Masculine names" should be accepted. An answer should be the only thing the 4 squares have in in common, or the most general thing. (5 years, 4 months ago)
