Initial Time We Play A Game With Two Letters For Three Consecutive Weeks

Just in case the guy on KFAN has got his intellectual property ducks in a row with his Kickstarter thing, I will not refer to this game by the same name he has given his version. Instead, this will be the initial time I "host" a game for the second on this platform with the following rules:

1. I will give you two letters (for example, "K.P"). All the items that week will be a two-word answer in which each word begins with letter in the appropriate spot. The answer can be a person, place, thing, or other two-word phrase. For example, if "K.P." are the letters, then one answer might be Kirby Puckett. Another answer might be "Krakow, Poland." And so on.

2. I will provide six clues for each answer. The clues will be provided one-at-a-time.

3. If you believe you know the answer, make a Spoilered guess in the thread. The point will go to whomever correctly identifies the answer first. If you submit an incorrect response, then you can no longer submit for that particular answer.

4. The participant with the most correct answers at the end of the week wins. (If there is a tie, then I will have tiebreakers for only the participants in the tie.)

5. You're going to be on the honor system, but you should not be using the internet or other resources.

The letters will be revealed, and clues for the first phrase will commence, tomorrow at 8:30 am.

      1. I love her so much. I also find it hilarious she can act circles around her brother.

          1. Less hilarious that I don't know what I'm doing and she didn't come to mind right away.

              1. Right. In the game you're completely stealing, the answers are given out-loud, so everyone hears them.

    2. Once held for ransom by pirates

    Next clue at 1150

        1. The being held hostage story is nuts.

          On the way across the Aegean Sea, Caesar was kidnapped by pirates and held prisoner. He maintained an attitude of superiority throughout his captivity. The pirates demanded a ransom of 20 talents of silver, but he insisted that they ask for 50. After the ransom was paid, Caesar raised a fleet, pursued and captured the pirates, and imprisoned them. He had them crucified on his own authority, as he had promised while in captivityβ€”a promise that the pirates had taken as a joke

        1. Impressive, that category had stumped everyone who has heard it until clue six.

          1. Being an astronomer, Insight made me immediately think of the Mars mission, which led to thinking of other things that could be similarly named.

        1. My 9yo is resisting learning keyboarding. I may just share this as a reason for why being able to type quickly is important. πŸ˜‰

          1. I'm still resisting. I can type about 60 words per minute, but I only use like 6 of my fingers

              1. Middle school keyboarding was the only C I ever got in school, but certainly the skill I've used the most throughout my life.

                1. That's the downside of grades. I know people that avoided the class to avoid the grade.

                  1. It was required, but I'm sure I would have avoided it if I could have. Not for fear of the grade, but because I hated it. So boring! And we used typewriters despite it being the 90's, so it was also super, super loud. No me gusta.

              2. Dido. I only got to like 30 WPM in high school, but learning touch typing was really valuable.
