Many of us are too old for crayons, and yet more of us are too young to buy crayons for our children. And something which the wiki does not have a good list of isn’t a great theme to boot.

The theme not being “international” or “ubiquitous” enough doesn’t really seem like a good argument to me when there have been topics like “capitals of US states” and “Teams in MLB”.

And yes, it is even worse than Lanthanides in terms of number of choices.

That makes sense. I guess I should have been more general.

New Round: Common Literary Tropes

A trope, as used here, is a figure of speech where the general meaning of a word is changed and used in a special/altered sense. Not to be confused with schemes, which change the way words are used in the sentence, and mainly constitute changes in sentence pattern.

I know this is a large theme, and that’s why there’s a “common” beside the title.

I think what Jaume said was “sarcasam”, the thing you meant. ;)

"Nice spelling there."

That was the “sarcasam” I was talking about.

New Round: Kong games with color(s) in the names

The color can be merged with some other word. So Brownie will work (not implying that there is a game with brownie in the name on the list).
