Great quiz! My only suggestion would be to accept "obsess" for the "obsessive" hint, because the way the clue is written, the answer could be either a verb or an adjective. This was fun, though- I was surprised by how many words you came up with that fit your "ob-" criterion!
Dec 14th, 2010 at 04:33 GMT
Good quiz. Ditto above on obsess. Obliges could work for readily follows directions. Maybe also accept obscene.
Dec 14th, 2010 at 04:37 GMT
Oh..and thanks for the observe hint.
Dec 14th, 2010 at 16:06 GMT
Super quiz. The Bavarian town made me think of the World's longest place name: Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu (85 letters)

Obstruction is also a barrier.
Mar 29th, 2011 at 19:32 GMT
Of course I miss Obvious, because, well you know...
Mar 29th, 2011 at 19:37 GMT
I guess the Bavarian town isn't *that* famous. Interesting bonuses on here, I found four.
Mar 29th, 2011 at 19:39 GMT
"Obscurity" fits for "oblivion." Threw me off totally.
Mar 29th, 2011 at 19:45 GMT
hmm, how about obliges for "readily follows instruction", I couldn't get that out of my head
Mar 29th, 2011 at 19:48 GMT
"Obi-wan" isn't enough? You have to type his last name, too?
Mar 29th, 2011 at 20:23 GMT
same as oh_Neville. They both fit that description.
Mar 29th, 2011 at 20:29 GMT
i - like most - was oblivious to Oberammergau
Mar 29th, 2011 at 20:30 GMT
Oblivion & Oblivious? Observe & Observatory? And you can obsess over important matters as well. On the plus side, Obsidian is just a great word.
Mar 29th, 2011 at 20:34 GMT
Took too long trying to spell the bavarian town and didn't notice I had left 2 easy ones blank... ARGH!
Mar 29th, 2011 at 20:39 GMT
Ay, guv'nah, wot about, I 'unno, 'obby, 'obble, 'obnob, and JRR Tolkien's classic novel th' 'obbit?
Mar 29th, 2011 at 21:05 GMT
am reminded of the stephen fry article: give us back our obfuscation. i don't know what it means either, but damnit i tried it and i expected a bonus...
Mar 29th, 2011 at 21:16 GMT
Perhaps obsolescence for completely forgotten as well?
Mar 29th, 2011 at 21:37 GMT
You have both "obey" and "obedient," as well as "oblivion" and "oblivious." Why bother?
Mar 29th, 2011 at 21:59 GMT
Cheers for the Simpsons hint - wouldn't have gotten it otherwise!
Mar 29th, 2011 at 22:00 GMT
The 2 bonuses I got were obfuscate and obsequious - anyone know the others?
Mar 29th, 2011 at 22:02 GMT
the other 10 bonuses are obdurate, obstreperous, Oblio, obviate, obscura, oblate, oblast, (Ed) O'bannon, oblique and obrigado
Mar 29th, 2011 at 22:38 GMT

Am I the only one surprised to find out that "obliviate" isn't a real world outside Hogwarts?
Mar 30th, 2011 at 00:00 GMT
Blimpyboy: I tried obliviate definitely thinking it was a real word. haha.
Mar 30th, 2011 at 00:31 GMT
Mar 30th, 2011 at 00:37 GMT
"Obscene" and "Obtrusive" should be allowed for "brash and rude - in your face"
Mar 30th, 2011 at 00:38 GMT
Objectionable Language could also be an answer for "@#%!# or %*$*#! could be substitutions for this"
Mar 30th, 2011 at 00:39 GMT
Word nerds and cruciverbalists everywhere salute you, caramba. Great quiz!
Mar 30th, 2011 at 00:53 GMT
Obliviate should at least be a bonus answer. I actually got obverse from the clue for observe, since I just typed that one in randomly. Then I realized the above was an anagram...
Mar 30th, 2011 at 01:25 GMT
@PK9: same for obverse. i was pretty relieved too, was seriously stuck on that clue otherwise.
Mar 30th, 2011 at 03:01 GMT
OMG! From what deep, dark, distant recess of my memory did I pluck the name "Oberammergau"?!?!?!
Mar 30th, 2011 at 03:08 GMT
oblong is not rectangular. its just elongated.
Mar 30th, 2011 at 03:13 GMT
This is one of those quizzes where I immediately feel stupid when I see the answers.

He had the same obsequious manner that was the reason I had him killed...
Mar 30th, 2011 at 08:18 GMT
"Readily follows instructions" describes a verb, while the answer provided for it is an adjective...
Mar 30th, 2011 at 09:12 GMT
a really good quiz with some great clues (kudos for the obverse/observe). I think objectionable could be an answer "brash and rude, in your face" as much as the sweary clue. so that stumped me. also i would can the names altogether, and stick with words (as in words in the dictionary). just a thought!
Mar 30th, 2011 at 09:40 GMT
I guess you could read your own obituary if you faked your death. But that's just me being obtuse
Mar 30th, 2011 at 10:24 GMT
I only got Oberammergau due to a song my middle school german teacher taught us, and for some reason it still pops into my head randomly all these years later. It goes something like "Ober aber uber Oberammergau, Oder aber uber Unterammergau, Oder aber uberhaupt nicht kommt, Ist nicht gewiss." It was still a lucky guess to get it right since I have no idea about the passion play Oberammergau is supposedly famous for.
