The radius/ulna clue appears twice and (at least to me) only makes sense once. I couldn't find another context in which the first instance makes sense.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 04:59 GMT
I think there's a problem with your common bond when only 10% of people are guessing it.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 05:25 GMT
@ElisDaddy: Are you saying the actual clue is appearing twice? If so, that's a glitch. I would never use the a clue twice in a game, especially if it doesn't fit the word ladder. I'm sorry this is happening.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 06:02 GMT
Just FYI - ulna/radius clue only appeared once for me
Mar 18th, 2012 at 06:09 GMT
The radius/ulna clue appears only once for me (unless I'm not understanding what ElisDaddy means).
LauraF84 — as far as I'm concerned, if only a small number relative to the other clues, but in double digits, are getting the common bond then that means it's an interesting challenge — probably not what most word ladder mavens are used to, but then a
common bond word ladder
is more than just a word ladder. The fact that you have to think a bit makes it interesting.

It's nice to see another fellow sporcler make a mystery theme word ladder. This is a good ladder, but I'm not a big fan of the bond. I still enjoyed the quiz though.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 09:55 GMT
Is 'doglike' supposed to be the connection for 'like'? Not exactly a distinctive expression...anything could be '___like'...
Mar 18th, 2012 at 12:19 GMT
I see the other comments. Clearly there was a glitch. Radius/ulna was showing up a second time instead of Al/Vidal. No worries -- I was able to work back from the other side and deduce it.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 13:18 GMT
Good word ladder, but sorry...I just don't get the common bond theme. A few of these words have to do with a dog, but most of them don't.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 13:31 GMT
I agree that the it's a bad common bond but it might help if you were to clarify it's not four letters, or maybe that's just me being silly for thinking it would be four letters
Mar 18th, 2012 at 14:01 GMT
This would've been a 5-orb word ladder, but the common bond killed it.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 15:32 GMT
@bowsntoys: I agree with atakdog above; looking at those words from different "angles" enables you to discern the connection. In some cases it is a preceding or following word; in others it is part of the word. Good for you, for challenging us, and having us think about it... Also, the timer was nicely set, to afford us the time to DO some thinking before it expired.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 17:23 GMT
We have: a plate, 2 foods, 2 animals, a movie, something to hold fire irons, an exclamation, a sad expression and a tree. All have "dog" in the word. Maybe the directions should say that only the words with bullets have the common bond.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 17:27 GMT
hang dog? never heard of that
Mar 18th, 2012 at 18:04 GMT
'hangdog' means 'defeated' or 'downcast' e.g. He came home looking very hangdog after his team lost the match.

This is my first Common Bond Word Ladder, and I appreciate your comments.
I am the Curator for Word Ladder, so I ask all of you who who would like to make a common bond word ladder to send a link to me when you contribute the game. There is no sarcasm here; I am continuously looking for games to make as curator picks. I will help you with any Word Ladder game if you need it.

how are 'wood' and 'dog' connected???
Mar 18th, 2012 at 23:13 GMT
@baglady92 In dogwood, a group of woody trees and shrubs.
Mar 18th, 2012 at 23:51 GMT
Oh, y'all need to spend some time in the South in the spring to see the dogwood trees in bloom. My hometown (away from Germany) has a dogwood festival. The trees are stunning.
Mar 19th, 2012 at 02:14 GMT
dog face???? dog fire????? hang dog?????????? hmmmm.
Mar 19th, 2012 at 03:27 GMT
@julia_christine: You have one of those backwards. :)
Mar 19th, 2012 at 20:24 GMT
Great quiz, boysntoys. I got near the end and was going to post that there was too much time, until I agonised over the common bond for two minutes before getting it. All the words in the common bond made sense to me so I'm giving this 5 globes.
Mar 20th, 2012 at 00:00 GMT
This is the only quiz where I've actually gotten the Bond Word...
