Yep, I'm on holidays the next 2 weeks so unfortunately have to forfeit a few turns. I'll hand over my meager clues to Richard so he can finish the game.

I enjoyed it so far, pretty difficult though as celebrities is not my strength :)

Delay

Post by Unhalfbricking » Fri Sep 21, 2007 2:41 pm

Please accept my apologies. I have received an entry which is ambiguous, as there are seveal cities of that name around the world. Please ensure you are more specific in future.

When I get a reply, I will post the next results.

Regards
Julian

Just a reminder for today's deadline. Only 3 tries so far, so maybe not much information coming? I trust you all receive personal messages from this?

Additional clue for those who read this carefully! ;) There has been at least one guess who is of my nationality & gender combination, at some point during the game, so far. (A lot of help, right?)

Still wating for entries. Not enough to post yet, I think.

Or should I simply post irrespective?

Have Jeff, Fraser, Stompy, Richard & Jon given up?

I will post at 5pm-ish, whether I get more responses or not, but am still interested in why we're losing people? Going on too long? Entries too far apart?

Sorry, my brain is melting. I keep wanting to guess a cartoon character figuring it is unlikely to more wrong than I currently am :(

Yeah, I think the clues are too vague at this point to make an edu-ma-cated guess

And this from the kitten smoking man who gets all the clues, what hope do us mere mortals have?

Next Deadline Tuesday Midday - why not send in your answer early??

My apologies for the delay, but sometimes its very hard to find anything interesting as a clue between 2 celebrities.

Clue for everyone: No celebrity mentioned so far is famous for the same thing as me. That'll give you something to think about!

As the celebrity hunters close in on the target, the game gets more exciting....(no, really, it is getting more exciting... what, you're not excited? Well, some of you should be!)

Don't forget the deadline!!
