Nice idea. But not being scientifically minded I only know a few symbols. So I really could have done with more time.

Couldn't figure out what "cupboard" wasn't being accepted... oh.. there's an S on the end. Duh.

I thought I was wrong because I forgot the S as well. Even though I was pretty sure on those element symbols besides Darmstadtium.

same thing, that's what you get when you try to be too fast. I figured I made a spelling error. Even erased the p, cause the few times I heard the word they dont seem to pronounce it. (more like cubberd) (momentarily forgetting about the element symbols...)

I remember playing this game with my friends when we were bored in high school science class. Funny how we only ever seemed to come up with things like Arsenic+Sulfur or Fluorine+Uranium+Carbon+Potassium.

Got them all but found barges really tough (dont know that word or is it from the verb barging in?) that water and cupboard is low I get aswell, but candy being near the bottom? the tough element is neodymium I suppose, but it is reasonable to assume it starts with an n, so that would give can-y, how can the word candy not come to mind then?

(or do people really only stare at the elements? when I nearly have the word I assume the rest or quickly check it. Like with violin after vio(l)- you immediately think about violin and then I see what the last element is, and see it is correct

Plural of the word barge...like the big flat bottom boat that transports goods on rivers. I live in a river town...I just figured it was a pretty common word. Maybe not for you land lubbers.

That one was tough. It's a pretty well known word, but not one that I think of frequently. Plus, I've never heard of "Roentgenium" and its chemical symbol isn't the most intuitive.

I love this type of quiz because it combines to aspects of knowledge into one. You could also do the same with state postal abbreviations if that is possible. Just a suggestion.
