Yes I tried to try her first champagne, first champagne, to try my first champagne, her first champagne, as well as it was too ugly, they didn't want that one, they refused that one, also abbey graveyard, plus walking, walked, climbed over the mountain, on foot, nuns helped, and she is the best, she is special.

Completely agree. I'm really frustrated. I knew every one but could only figure out the phrasing of a couple.

Absolutely. Please be lenient with the phrasing of the answers. Its frustrating to know the answer but not have the exact sequence of words sought for particularly when the clue doesn't say there ought to be a specific phrase

Gave up frustrated for the same reason as everybody else.

I had a problem with the exact wording of the hiding place. Tried everything from gravestones to cemetery to monastery to abbey.

I had exactly the same problem as the other members, that the phrasing was proving to be a problem. How can you answer questions that you know the answer to, if a specific order of words is needed?

It's a good idea for a quiz but needs WAY more generous options for answers. Just doesn't make sense to require exact quotes and particular phrases that aren't even quotes. For example - "Cemetary" should work, instead of "Behind the grave stones at the Abbey."
