I'm confused on 5 Down... :confused: I did manage quite a few, really. :) It really is a
challenging one. No wonder I'm confused on some of them! :p

Additional clue (highlight to read): it is associated with one of Lara's most famous deaths.

I don't even know what a debate is.

Its like a discussion of sorts

I have a feeling its along the lines of Lara's new hairstyle :)
Maybe its braid or ponytail :p

So since I'm not interested in the TReboot game i'll probably not get that clue.

16. Maybe she's born with it...maybe it's maybelline.

:confused:

I should have avoided using clues that mostly only Americans would recognize.

Spoiler-y clue: maybelline is a makeup brand. Which TR character is associated with cosmetics?

I'll be posting the answer key soon.

!Lara Croft!

Anyone got another clue for 29?

How many did you get right?

Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions for future puzzles!

I would have put underpus, but it didnt fit because "Underpus" only has 1 S.

I got 40 out of 43. (I would have had 41 with Underpus)

My suggestion is to make the clues more...distinctive. DUNSTAN fits as equally into "Savor Saviour" as CRYSTAL.
