  1. So “our” American Cousin is not the same as “my” American Cousin.

    Congrats Gilbert!And the string of unplayed clues continues..How many days in a row now? I am too lazy to check, but I would say about 10?

    • 11…I checked. Friday, Dec. 29th was the most recent game without unplayed clues.

        I’d call that more than a temporary blip. Everything ends eventually of course, even ManCity lost v Liverpool yesterday after being undefeated for 22 games in the Premier league alone and over 30 games in all competitions (FA Cup etc…)
