Same rules as usual...

COME ON IN AND HAVE SOME FUN. IF YOU PLAY, BE SURE TO CHECK BACK REGULARLY TO SEE IF YOU HAVE WON, OR IF IT IS YOUR WORD - TO UPDATE FOR OTHERS. :)

Colorado Papa gets it right with Q U A S I M O D O , which is an old word designating Low Sunday.

Quick definitions (quasimodo) [from www.onelook.com]

(n.) The first Sunday after Easter; Low Sunday.

(This definition is from the 1913 Webster's Dictionary and may be outdated.)

Leave it up to Victor Hugo to incorporate it as a character's name in The Hunchback of Notre Dame, written in 1831.

And to Disney, to popularize it today in their cartoon rendition of the story.

Isn't that an individual's name? Thought the Hunchback of Notre Dame was Quasimodo. Poor guy. Nice breakout of letters.

(C,C,E,R,T)

DEVOTIONS - Sody:placed T and found E. wow!
CRUMBLING - JeanneMarie: found C & R. awesome!)
GAZUMPERS - Full-of-Fun: placed A... thanks for the new word!
CAPTIVATE - Revo:placed another A... found another C... yay!
ELIMINATE - CP: nothing new... but it helps in the elimination!

(scoring is harder than guessing, I hope I did it right)

Thanks ColoradoPapa! :) This is better than Lumosity. We get brain exercise and buddies across the nation. :)
