Initial Time We Play A Game With Two Letters For Seven 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 at 9:00am.

      1. I'm guessing I'm wrong, but, interestingly, my guess is also related to the VW bassist, and I actually recalled that weird bit of trivia from some strange corner of my mind...

  1. Phrase two clues:
    1. First cousin once-removed of the bassist for Vampire Weekend
    2. More commonly known for fictional cousin

    1. How about a couple of mini versions from people to have a try first?

      I'm wondering maybe just a three question, one day trial and anyone that liked it can sign up for an entire week?

      My worry personally is signing up for a week And then not being very good at creating the clues

          1. "Oof!" by the way, is lately my go-to expression. It works for most all things "2020," and can simultaneously be tragic, sympathetic, and exasperatory. I think it came from my kids and their playing of Roblox, in which "oof" is the default expression when characters take damage.

  13. Phrase ten clues:
    1. Definition varies by country
    2. Has its own day
    3. Faces undercapitalization
    4. Sometimes use crowdfunding
