What am I? (5)

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

What am I? (5)

Off the cuff but hopefully slightly harder.

It may be a game to you in that get up, but you have gone too far, you'll have to go.



I'm off to bed now, will log on later, so no rush.

Is the answer the name of a game?

In that case I'll try monopoly...

I'll follow a few tangents:

game = bridge;
get-up = (unusual) style of dress = suit; suit of cards?
gone too far = a bridge; Hey!:D bridge again?
have to go = sign-off: the condition of a bid that requires partner to pass

is the answer: sign-off:?:

a game to you = yoga

in that get up = your saffron dhoti

you have gone too far = state of mystical rapture / you’re wasted

you’ll have to go = Nirvana awaits you

get up = transcend earthly concerns / arise

Is the answer : levitation?

tangentially yours

Just some partial tangents:

game <=> play
get up <=> wake
gone to far <=> over
have to go <=> p**

This is leading nowhere but just "playing" around...:D

Someone is slightly warm in one train of thought, but other than that, no way near.

You're looking for a one word answer.


Tarek, I'll let you have this just the once, and the answer is no.

For the general viewership:
Hyponyms (specific words) related to the Hypernym (general word) Activity.

It's a bit like saying I'll have all the synonyms in Roget's Thesaurus as my answer.

... if not ... then how about this ...

a game to you = pastime / sport

and also game = prey / hunted animals

in that get up = mount = up on a horse (a hunter) or mount (a trophy)

you have gone too far = overshot

you'll have to go = dismiss / fire

is it hunting or bloodsports?

No emm, your not, but on re-reading your post it could be said that you do have a similar train of thought but not as warm as the one I was hinting at.


emm wrote:a game to you = pastime / sport

Along these lines.

Your looking for a word of four syllables.

This is the real clue - v subtle, MCC.

The one MCC referred to as "slightly warm" was either tarek or me, and I'm guessing tarek...

The 4 "G" words: game, get, gone, go

Getting rid of the G's, we have the 4 syllables: am-et-on-o

So I'm guessing the Italian word ammettono, meaning "they admit"...

Tell me if I've hopped onto the wrong train (Rome Express?) or not...:)

The train only goes to Brighton, the buffet car does not serve lasagne, and the train is only an allegory as it didn't leave Victoria station in the first place.

I suppose I could make it three syllables to help you on your way but you would need the SUN to guide you.
