The Dabbler’s Round Blogworld Quiz #20 – Part B

Continuing from yesterday’s RB Quiz Part A, here are the answers to the first five clues:

1. Generator of Monday chaos? (6) = DYNAMO (anagram of Monday = generator)

2. Light equipment made from cobalt or chromium. (5) = TORCH (embedded in cobalt or chromium)

3. Part of what might fall on the ungodly. (9) = BRIMSTONE (as in ‘fire and…)

4. Formidable weapon for formidable woman? (6-3) = BATTLE-AXE

5. Regard tug from vantage point. (10) = WATCHTOWER (a tug being a ‘tow-er’)
 

And here are clues 6-10. Remember, the answers are all connected. For a cream bun, you have to find the connection; and for a mega-cream bun, with extra cream and extra bun, identify the odd one out….

6. Hybrid knot once used in battle. (8)
7. Iron block attached to stirrup. (5)
8. Living next to No.47 or No.80! (11)
9. In hot spot get the wind up and go AWOL before military operation (6,5)
10. Much too noble feudal superior. (8)

The full solution will appear later…

    9 is Desert Storm — so I guess there’s your odd one out.

    It’s a long shot, but could 8 be Blockbuster (live on same block + bus numbers) ??

    By the way, top clues Brit’s Dad.

      is it revolutions?

        Not blockbuster or revolutions, chaps.

        I’m glad at least one has stumped you fiends.

    Composition?

    Well — it’s musical and I’m running out of 11-letter ops.

      May 11, 2011 at 14:55

      Funnily enough, it’s not musical.

    Would no. 8 be Transfigure? I think you might have to share lashings of megacream among several folks this week, from all the comments. Brilliant clues.

      Not ‘transfigure’, Mark.

      I’ll pass the kind comments on to Brit Senior. The internet isn’t really his thing though – he actually posted me these clues in an envelope. With a stamp! Through the post! The answers were sealed separately to prevent me from cheating. I got them all except no. 3 and no.8, which is v clever.

    Looks like you’ve got them all. Does anyone want to spell out the connection and odd one out before I publish the solution?

    Bother – I missed all the fun. The connection is that they are allied operations from WWII.

    except desert storm which was from the gulf war.
