PEER REVIEW 41


Our other weekly competition for clue setters. The idea (like CLUELESS) is to set a cryptic clue to a given word or phrase, unlike Clueless you will be judged by your peers and not the setter of the clue word.

Multiple entries are welcome. You MUST post a clue for your vote to count. One vote per contestant – please state the post number you are voting for.

The entry with the most qualifying votes wins and sets next week’s PEER REVIEW. In the event of a tie the setter chooses the winner.

There is a (roughly) one day time frame. Your clue must be posted by 4pm Friday, when voting opens. Voting closes at 8pm Friday, with the winner being announced shortly afterwards. If the result is clear prior to the voting deadline it may be announced before 8pm.

The setter donates an online prize. The setter reserves the right to change the rules in order to deal with unforeseen circumstances.

Feel free to include an explanation of your clue just in case solver-voters cannot appreciate your clue.

The word/phrase to be clued this week is

UNDERSTUDY(10)

Good Luck!
