Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

Fraser Challenge #2

Welcome to this passion-filled section with our favorite daughter and her soon-to-be lover & (hand-fast) husband! We've created 3 games for you to play again, all based on section 9. Same as before, each game allows for 6 points to be earned, but you need only 10 to get a "perfect." Over-achievers (you know who you are! ;)) who answer all 18 correctly do earn an extra point, though.

Answers due by midnight on July 28. Send them to highlandergames at ymail dot com. Happy Puzzling!


Game 1

The Murray's game of Marsali...has been renamed Passionement, in honor of our section's title. Or, without all the duplicate letters:

PASIONEMT

You need only find words beginning with each letter above, (from our paltry 2 chapters - 40 & 41), with the following subjects:

Places
People

3 words for every point.

Game 2

Nannag has created another tricky Jeopardy game for you. The "answers" are below...send us the questions! 1 point for each question.

1. Person who resembles a poisoned white mouse when ill.

2. "Officious" person who looks like a half-roasted pig?

3. Person who is Roger’s aunt, six times removed.

4. Meeting a gentleman who could give Lizzie the current whereabouts of Jamie and Claire was the reward for this virtuous behavior.

5. A fair indication of male satisfaction (according to Roger).

6. Name of the county wherein lies Fraser’s Ridge (as well as a name recognized by knitters internationally.)

Game 3

The last game is a cryptogram -- dinna hate me! I've made it easy -- well loved quotes spoken... 2 points for each quote.
