Default [Dixonary] Round 3073 HANAP Results

Fellow players,

A HANAP is definition #8; an ornate ceremonial goblet. This is one of many hanaps that show up in an online image search:

That online search also turns up many hits on a Tagalog song "Hanap Hanap." Apparently the word means "search" in Tagalog. I didn't know that when I dealt, and it doesn't matter. It isn't an English word.

Nobody guessed the answer, though John Barrs recognized the word in the definition list and disqualified himself. Good thing he did the honorable thing, too, for had he voted for #8 he would have had to deal next. Instead, his ultra-long orchid was - along with Chris Carson's and Tim Lodge's inventions - part of a three-way tie with 4 points. All were natural scores, so that tie-breaker didn't help. John was behind the other two in the rolling scores, but Chris and Tim were tied there too. Going to the lifetime scores tie-breaker - I don't remember the last time that happened - Chris is slightly ahead of Tim. (Tim is gaining on him, though, and could catch him somewhere around round 3600.) Chris thus has the next deal. Tim and John share runner-up honors.

13. an orchid living in symbiotic association with very aggressive ants. The ants live in the hollow bulbils of the orchid where they rear aphids for honeydew and protect the orchid by attacking anything that approaches the plant. Small predators form part of their diet but they have very painful bites and can protect the orchid even from human collectors. The only other insect allowed near is a night-flying moth which fertilizes the orchid. From Barrs, J. who did not vote. Voted for by: Widdis, D.; Shefler, M.; McGill, R.; Cunningham, D. Score: 4.

No definition from Cunningham, D. who voted 9, 13. Voted for by: N/A. Score: 0.

No definition from Abell, T. who voted 1, 4. Voted for by: N/A. Score: 0.
