@All I'm not sure why this lattice is rated so much lower than the other one. I did an experiment and now there is a "HINT" and "CLUES" options. I'd love to know what people think of those.
Apr 15th, 2011 at 05:18 GMT
I was wondering why this is rated so low too, I don't think it is worse than the other in any significant way at all. I like both of the experiments, I think I am going to steal that hint idea.
Apr 15th, 2011 at 05:25 GMT
@sproutcm: The only reason I can think of the lower rating is the right side of the quiz has a few words that are a bit less known than the other side. The quality and cluing of the quiz is just as good as the previous one though.

I was expecting 'zombie' to be a bonus for reanimated corpse?
Apr 15th, 2011 at 23:26 GMT
Never heard of "lase", but I'm glad the etymology is exactly what you'd expect it to be.
Apr 16th, 2011 at 20:48 GMT
@sproutcm people are obviously jealous of your awesomeness and only pray that some of it oozes onto them by giving this quiz a bad rating
Apr 17th, 2011 at 15:01 GMT
LICH, LITH, LATH, and LASE are all pretty rare words, and are much more difficult than the rest of the puzzle(s)

make more please

I liked it, I tried typing linen for the first clue and flukily managed to get by that way. My only tiny nitpick is that LACK doesn't necessary mean "Be in need of". I lack a third ear, but certainly do not need one, if you catch my drift. Still an excellent idea for a quiz, I greatly look forward to more!

It seems there is some basic principle of lattices that I just don't grasp. I solved this in the allotted time, but didn't quite know what I was doing. Maybe people would rate it higher if you mentioned that the Maltese crosses signify "this box doesn't get filled in." I kept trying to to figure out how to fill them in, which kept my enjoyment to a minimum. (Unusual for a sproutcm puzzle. There's a reason I only follow one contributor!)

No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't magically change zombie into a four letter word.
Jul 9th, 2011 at 04:26 GMT
disappointed that "inferius" didn't work for reanimated corpse
Jul 9th, 2011 at 04:40 GMT
The "reanimated corpse" clue is a little misleading, since a lich, while undead, is in modern gaming and fantasy terminology a spellcaster who voluntarily binds his intellect to his corpse in order to achieve a form of physical immortality. In the more traditional, though obsolete, meaning, a lich is simply a dead body.
Jul 9th, 2011 at 04:46 GMT
I'm a little relieved I'm not the only one who couldn't come up with "lich." Okay, let's face it--I'm very relieved.
Jul 9th, 2011 at 05:42 GMT
"Lash" is above the eye? I think that clue is more accurately answered by "brow". "Nits" are really the eggs of a louse, not the "lice" themselves. Sorry to "nit-pick".
Jul 9th, 2011 at 05:46 GMT
Well, I loved it. Yeah, the last column was a little hard, but it was still fun and new to me. I think the only thing that would make it better, in my opinion, is if it were larger. 5-globes from me!
Jul 9th, 2011 at 06:30 GMT
Thank you, World of Warcraft, for putting the word lich in my vocabulary :)

Will somebody explain why 'Arsenic and Old ____' was included???? I'm confused.
Jul 9th, 2011 at 09:00 GMT
@WCRoentgen Actually, to "nit-pick" back, the dictionary says specifically that a nit is " the egg of a louse or other parasitic insect; also : the insect itself when young."
Jul 9th, 2011 at 10:57 GMT
I am a fan of this type of quiz and would like to see more :)

5 globes for adding the word lich to my vocabulary
Jul 9th, 2011 at 12:08 GMT
Love the word lattices. This one was great - a little hard, but really fun!
Jul 9th, 2011 at 12:38 GMT
@WCRoentgen - Your lashes are not on your brow, they're on your eyelid, just as the clue states.
Jul 9th, 2011 at 12:50 GMT
5 globes for including a zamboni! /figure skating fanatic ;)
Jul 9th, 2011 at 14:15 GMT
yeah, i just finished rereading "harry potter & the half-blood prince," like, two days ago--so i absolutely entered "inferi" for the corpse question, lol.
Jul 9th, 2011 at 14:24 GMT
Yeah those clues on the far right side were pretty brutal...or I'm just dumb
Jul 9th, 2011 at 14:31 GMT
too bad "lack" doesn't necessarily mean "in need of." Something lacking is more missing...
Jul 9th, 2011 at 14:56 GMT
I would say you definitely were stretching to fit some words in. Abbreviations are dumb; WoW terminology is irrelevant for everyone who has a life; lack was a stretch. I also recommend expanding it so it's bigger and has many more words cuz those are more fun.
Jul 9th, 2011 at 15:16 GMT
I'm glad I'm not the only one who kept thinking "inferi/inferius" for "reanimated corpse". :)
Jul 9th, 2011 at 15:29 GMT
I assume you intended "lith" to be an abbreviation for lithograph. I've never heard that word abbreviated before. I suggest sticking to actual abbreviations if you're going to go there.
Jul 9th, 2011 at 17:10 GMT
The first four columns were a walk in the park. The last column I felt like somebody jumped out of the bushes and murdered me.
Jul 9th, 2011 at 17:17 GMT
@matthewoffner actually if you look in a dictionary, the definition of lack I used is copied directly out of there. Many words in the English language have multiple definitions. As for the words that are on the grid, when ladders loop and still have to follow ladder rules, the words become really constrained. Also as for what is allowed, crosswords and word puzzles always have abbreviations and that one here is a legal dictionary abbreviation.

These quizzes rock. Fit's that it was made by sproutcm.
Jul 10th, 2011 at 17:17 GMT
Good quiz, I definitely needed the clues to begin with. Could have done with a little bit more time though.

@tim0786: Thank you, Battle for Wesnoth, for putting the word lich in my vocabulary :)

Nessie is a gentle creature. We're trying to steer away from the term "monster."
