    This game is difficult to explain so here are two examples:

    Puzzle: 100 C in a M.
    solution: Centimetres in a metre.

    Puzzle: 7 C of the R.
    solution: Colours of the Rainbow.

    Apologies if I have put this game up before but it would have ben a long time ago!!!

    Whoever answers the last puzzle posts the next.

    EASY one to start.

    To be pedantic and keep the game consistent.

    This should have been

    88 K on a P

    Could Shallow Blue rephrase his puzzle?
    Thanks

    These puzzles come in many forms, they don't all follow the standard pattern. For example, 1000 = words that a picture is worth. Your specification is too restrictive IMHO.

    A P is worth a 1000 W.

    The game was played on Capital Radio (London) in the 70s always with that formula.
    They became harder and harder as listeners became attuned. (No pun intended)

    We can be creative and try 20 questions on this if people are willing.

    1. Is the last word (the c-word) a unit of time?
