    Don't overthink the overall theme.

    I don't trust anyone who doesn't get the genius of Up If you're not in floods of joyful tears when Carl finally opens Ellie's Adventure Book you must indeed be monsters! It comes around in a beautiful circle from being in tears of sadness at the end of the extraordinary montage. And the music is wonderful!

    Just under 9 hours, people. You can have a prelim guess at the overall theme. I won't be releasing the answers on the thread at the deadline. It will be extended for just one pair who have had no time at all in a really bad week. I will let you know the answers in private threads if you like but there can be no discussion about the round in the thread. Sorry for any inconvenience but it would be unfair on the pair with the best score at the deadline if others were given time to catch up.

    To be fair to Finding Dory, the backstory to Dory was interesting so it added something to the world. It just didn't add anything more than that or expand its ideas. It's a sweet movie, nothing more. Hank the Octopus was brilliant though - star of the film!

    Monsters University should be on 2. My bad. Monsters University is the weakest left. Dory is next. Then A Bug's Life. I haven't seen Coco though. But beyond those the rest are excellent films.

    I genuinely consider the Toy Story trilogy to be at least as good as any film trilogy there has ever been. It could be argued that other individual Pixar films are better than the individual Toy Story films but the trilogy as a whole is their masterpiece.

    Ah that's tempting, as a huge Pixar-phile! But I could end up appalled having had a look at what you elimination-people did to Disney Princesses If the Cars movies don't ALL disappear first there's no justice in the world (err, or in your elimination games at least)

    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:
  16. Dolorous Gabe

    AcroPHILIA #19: EXTREME Edition - R3

    Okay, a small clarification on 6b as well: The "knighthood" applies to the lover and the subject is the corralling ruminator.
  17. Dolorous Gabe

    AcroPHILIA #19: EXTREME Edition - R3

    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.

    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!

    Oops, my apologies. In a rush I copied and pasted the acronyms from R2. I'll be back round to clarify the acronyms.

    That's fine. Make it Monday 19th at 11pm UK time
  23. Dolorous Gabe

    AcroPHILIA #19: EXTREME Edition - R3

    Would Saturday 17th at midday UK time be a reasonable deadline? I could extend to Monday evening if preferred? I will send out the characters for the last round at some point today. Edited to add: Monday it is. 11pm UK time on Monday 19th.

    For now, I will say there are some similarities with Round One. What you take from characters and what you form are similar. Put words you might associate with the characters together to form something from the books.

    Yes. I'm considering allowing a yes/no question about a certain clue as well. I'll decide on Sunday.
