Will you play the "Give me a clue!" game?

Asked by mazingerz88 (18450 points ) May 18th, 2012

I was walking with a friend the other day and we got to talking about Alexander Dumas’ Three Musketeers. I think my memory cells are slowly drifting away because it took me 45 minutes to recall the name of the third musketeer, Athos.

I then had to try and think about the name of another main character, the young man whose father was a musketeer and who came to Paris to become one and ended up dueling all three legendary musketeers, Athos, Porthos and Aramis.

The game is this…instead of posting this character’s name, please just give me a clue. A not so obvious clue that might be fun for me figuring it out. A one word clue or a phrase maybe-?

For others to play the game…post anything that you find yourself having difficulty to recall and other players, including me, would leave clues until you post with the correct answer.

Rules I guess are…

1. Please don’t forget to include the name of the jelly in your posted clue so he/she would know the clue is his/hers.

2. Jellies who are forgetful and posted a question, please no cheating and figure out the answer by figuring out the posted clues.

3. A single question may take hours, a day or two before a jelly recalls an answer so patience please…

( Right now, the name of this character from the Three Musketeers is not even close enough to be “In the tip of my tongue”. You might say it is down deep in my small intestines at this point. I just can’t think of his name even though I knew Gabriel Byrne played him in The Man in the Iron Mask movie where his character was much, much older. Lol. )

Three syllables. First syllable has an apostrophe.

Ne’remore?

Ela's avatar

@mazingerz88 He is often referred to as the 4th Musketeer.

First syllable rhymes with _ _ _. <—- (Would this be considered too obvious a clue?)

Dash dash dash? That’s three syllables, @Ela! I don’t think I know how to play this game. Sitting out for a minute to figure it out!

Ela's avatar

LOL @Dutchess_III I put in dashes instead of the word! I’m not sure I’m getting how to play either…

@mazingerz88 It is a French name and means leader.

mazingerz88's avatar

@Ela Just couldn’t figure out those dashes but thanks.

Still trying to figure out without clicking on @ucme‘s posted link. Or googling French name for leader. They might be giveaways. Ha ha…

First syllable rhymes with “car”.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Who are we talking about, any way?

Ela's avatar

Starts with the 4th letter of the alphabet.

@mazingerz88 What @Trillian said : ) Is rhyming acceptable? I didn’t know if it would be concidered too obvious.
@Dutchess_III the 4th Muskateer ; )

Dutchess_III's avatar

His real name or his Musketeer name?

Dutchess_III's avatar

mazingerz88's avatar

@Dutchess_III Was it because of Dante? I guess yeah, quite subliminally. : )

Ok, so who’s next? Darn…am I the only forgetful jelly here?

Sunny2's avatar

This sounds like Charades, but with words instead of actions.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I gotta go to work. : ( But I’ll be back!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well. I will go next. I already know who I’m thinking of, so you guys have to guess.

Eggs.

Ela's avatar

Benedict : )

Dutchess_III's avatar

Shit! Now I forgot who I was thinking of! And it wasn’t Benedict, but that was a GREAT answer @Ela! This is going to bug me all night long!

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Benedictine and Brandy

Dutchess_III's avatar

Are we still talking about people?

Dutchess_III's avatar

Wait! I remember! Eggs. And….yuck.

Dutchess_III's avatar

No! I want to be serious!

And we’re talking about a person….you gotta guess who I’m thinking of by the hints I give you!

Christmas.
