Oops, my apologies. In a rush I copied and pasted the acronyms from R2.

I'll be back round to clarify the acronyms.

I'm glad you posted this because I was thinking the cross outs might be a hint.

And I still think they might be. You never know with Dolorous Gabe. I'm looking for hints everywhere, but I can't find them.

I still thought they might be too, but on balance probably not. What a tortuous situation.

PS What do you think of my mule? I think its great.

I'll be honest.

My help and/or hints have been very much announced in this game. If I didn't make it relatively clear that I was trying to post something that could be helpful, I very likely wasn't (probably. I can't be bothered to check).

The reason? Viewing this game as a kind of test of its new setup, I wanted to see how gettable the ideas are without too much hinting. It has seemed like I have needed to give some direction at least in the first two rounds.

The third round will be like the first round in how it is set up but it will be more like previous Acrophilia games in how you find the mini-themes.

 

@Castellan the mule is delightful! :)

A couple of clues are causing problems but I am loath to give clarifications on them.

I will simply say this for now about 4b: the significance of high should not be underestimated.

Bran and I have highly original ideas for that highly esteemed clue.

@Castellan, the mule is very cute!

@Castellan I really thought that was Mr. Ed.

My Philiac mind twisted it into some wierd subversive clue.  But now that I have awoken, it's actually quite a sweet mule.

:rolleyes:

Okay, a small clarification on 6b as well:

The "knighthood" applies to the lover and the subject is the corralling ruminator.

Clue #6a in my opinion does work very well (although I accept it is quite evil) so I will just say something about it that likely just reinforces what you already suspect:

It is a heavily condensed paraphrasing of the subject's speech.

 

Also, whilst I'm here let me reinforce the following:

No idea what you acro-people are doing, I am just here to inform you about and shamelessly advertise the new elimination game, which you are kindly welcome to join.

/useless post. Carry on.

Ah that's tempting, as a huge Pixar-phile! :D

But I could end up appalled having had a look at what you elimination-people did to Disney Princesses :P 

If the Cars movies don't ALL disappear first there's no justice in the world (err, or in your elimination games at least) :pirate:

I am not completely convinced that this is at all helpful.
