    well it wasn't allowed, pity that but it is very niche.
    there was a similar category on the old football hangman game called Fruitchat Whingers, that was back in the day when i was called Unknown Pseudonym.
    the old C&R game has TKA and Demmerz in the graffiti too, but it is rare to see a nod to us these days, although there are a few cardinal Richelieu answers.

    i'm yet to see the question:
    what might a Hungarian say after she has stubbed her toe?
    A. good grief
    B. crivens
    C. Istenem

    I've been asked the meaning of Istenem before, and also saw a question the other day with your real name as one of the wrong answers...

    bingo lingo could work well too.
    you have the obvious ones like CLICKEY-CLICK, LEGS ELEVEN, TWO FAT LADIES etc. but each number has at least one signature: some of the more obscure ones include
    WAS SHE WORTH IT?
    DIRTY GERTIE
    ETHEL'S EAR
    GANDHI'S BREAKFAST ( 80 )
    THE LORDS IS MY SHEPHERD
    TOM NIX
    DANNY LA RUE
    OFTEN BEEN KISSED
    etc. etc.

    I prefer Hex Appeal. More time and the bonus isn't rigged later on in the game.

    Hex is okay but take away the make-up and you are just playing hangman with a load of boring categories. PMP has a certain amount of wit.

    Yes agreed, but so many times this has paid for the drinks and more when doing a fruit.

    Elements, Moons, Star Patterns, Formula 1 Teams etc. all categories with a set number or possibilities. Just a quick flick through for your answer!

    but you should know those anyway. perhaps except F1 which is niche (and imo, dull).
