Default [Dixonary] Round 3014 CASCHROM results


Asyntedon is "a foot-plough or crooked spade used for turning stony ground," definition 11. It got two votes, from John Barrs and Dave Cunningham. They're used mostly in Scotland, but the word is not specifically Scots. It comes from the Gaelic 'cas," a foot or handle, and "crom," bent, and is sometimes written in two parts. This is a farmer using a caschrom:

The next deal goes to Guerri Stevens, whose pair of panel (def. #10) earned her a natural 5. Runner-up and traditional "winnah" is John Barrs with #13 (a pattern of blocks in a tower) who also had 5 points, thanks to a late surge, but two of his points came from a vote for the correct definition. He was followed by two players with 3 points each.
