Thread: The catchphrase game

  1. #1381

    Default Re: The catchphrase game

    During my involvement with this competition, I have come to expect that if I deem something too easy, it is still hard as hell. This competition format is notoriously hard and one of the reasons I like it so much.

    I have been trying to figure this one out, but no luck so far.

    Reposting pic with big clue, because this seems to have killed thread:


    I live in part of the area shown coloured in the map in 2nd pic, so therefore it could loosely be thought of as "My *******"

    Hmm "A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse"? Not sure about 3rd pic though

    Yep, that's the one.

    Pic 3 is "fore" which is what golfers are meant to shout to warn people that they've just launched a ball towards them

    that sequence of pics was about as literal as possible, in relation to the words in the phrase, which I thought would make it easy, apparently not so much!

    over to you

    Tnx. I don't have a lot of inspiration today, so I'll continue your theme, including a phonetic element

    Is this just "Hors d'ouerves"? (or however one spells that French nonsense)

    Could you please provide a hint? I am trying hard but nothing seems to lead anywhere.

    "Run its course" could fit but that is just an idiom and there is no phonetic element to it as far as I can tell.

    Thank you! It is a bit unclear to me what the phonetic element was in that.

    Here's the next one:

    But of course. I had that as a working hypothesis too. As a hint, mine has a phonetic element too in the sense that the bottom two pictures combined sound like the actual word that I am looking for.

    Ok, I suppose there's every chance anyone reading this is going to say "how the hell did you get that" but let's give it a go anyway:
