Is anyone doing the Connecting Wall puzzle competition? I'm stuck on the pink grid and happy to share ideas.

Hi All, Thanks for your replies; oceantrader, I have EXACTLY the same as you, and can't think of anything to connect card and mushroom or any of the other possible 'spares'. You okay with the other grids?

Hello, it's online on the Radio Times site.
I've got 5 types of rubbish and 5 to do with darts (Bull fits in both)
Then 5 measures of pressure, leaving card and mushroom which don't seem to tie in with anything

'Wild' goes with card & mushroom, but it's a stretch to make it fit with anything else
this is only a stab but moonshine and mushroom are both
"theories" and possibly so are bar and card . good luck. hope this helps .

Thanks bluebirdino, I'll look into it!
I am also strugling with the last grid.
I have 5 Rihanna songs but I think one of them (Umbrella) goes into my second group - words which can follow cocktail. I then have numerious dances plus "freestanding", "farmhouse" and "cottage". Any clues?
Question Author
I agree with what you've got so far; for the fourth group I have suffixed your 3 plus one of the dances with a part of the house. Hope that helps.
Oceantrader is on to something with darting terms - shanghai is a single, double and a treble on one number. You should all remember bed from Bullseye ("Keep out of the Black and in the Red, Nothing in this game for two in a BED")
Check out glossary of darts on Wikipedia
Grid one:
Mr: Benn, Magoo, Bean, Burns
Bread: Stick, Crumb, Maker, Roll
Cloud: Funnel, stratus, Wall, Shelf
Cartoonists: Trudeau, Davis, Watterson, Goldberg

Grid two: not sure
Pressure: Bar, Inch of Mercury, lb/sq in, Pascal, Atmosphere
Rubbish: Rot, Bilge, Moonshine, Bull, Hot Air
Darts:Bed, Shanghai, Bull, Tops, Annie's room
Red: Card, Bull, Tops, Rot

Grid three:
Rhianna: Unfaithful, Take a Bow, SOS, We Found Love
Cocktail: Dress, Shaker, Mixer, Umbrella
Kitchen: Freestanding, Country, Cottage, Farmhouse
Dance: Hustle, Ceilidh, Promenade, Schottische
Just spotted the thread on Radio Times Only Connect which I was asking about! I was sure that BAR CARD MUSHROOM & BED are linked by MUSHROOM. Also in wall 1 there are about 7 names connected with wrestlers that might have to be factored in.

Think you've made a mistake in your last post lickeybanker...you've doubled up on mushroom, although the 4 are correct and I'm sure you've got the link. Now to work out the overall connection......
Sorry, enafalready, I meant that the link is oyster (bar,card,mushroom,bed). I am also pondering the overall link. Will post if the penny drops!
Do you think the overall link might be a bit "saucy"?
Question Author
Think you could be right oceantrader, although it's not one of their more satisfying connections is it?
I agree enafalready, It's not a really definive connection, but it does just about work and it's all I can see at the moment Anybody else out there got any thoughts?
