Correct! 3 points!

Team 1 - 1 point
Team 2 - 3 points

Team 1, it is now your turn. Pick a hieroglyph.

36 hours or 48 hours is fine with me.

Also, how is the 4th round going to work?

I'm not sure I can accept the answer.

Team 2 - your final clue is: The Premier League, the FA Cup and the Champions League.

(expired on 2020-11-20 17:00:00)


I am happy to discuss it after Team 2 has a punt, and we can make a decision, but I don't think your answer is correct.

Correct. The reason I have said that the first answer was correct is because the specific bell is a 'treble', and the football one is also the 'treble'

Choose a hieroglyph, Team 2

Team 1 - 1 point
Team 2 - 4 point

I just feel like this is a point of semantic misfortune? Like I said in our PT, where I identified the bell as a treble, they’re all to do with tripling/trebling something. I appreciate it if it’s just going to be a very strict interpretation of what is correct, but I feel that it was very clear that we’d figured out the answer and that losing the point is much more about the letter than the spirit of the law. I could just as easily have used the word “trebling” and nearly did when giving our answer.

They're not, though; two of them are specifically associated with the word "treble" rather than referring to the act of multiplying by 3.

The first and fourth are very specifically "treble", not even trebling
Not mafia has impressively cheated on his very first clue.
Also, what is Not_Mafia doing? This is some of the worst play I’ve ever seen.
I can't remember the last N_M post that wasn't bland, unimaginative and lame. Some shitposters are at least somewhat funny. You are the epitomy of the type of poster that nobody would miss if you were to suddenly disappear. You never add anything of value.

but the clues specifically link to the Treble. When a team wins those three cups, it is called "The Treble." It's never been called the "Triple", and the bell is also not referred to as a "Treble."

Only Connect is a very pedantic quiz.

Has anybody ever gone to a bar and ordered a treble?
