Default [Dixonary] Round 2884: SNERDLE results

In round 2884, 2 players earned top spot with 5 points: they were Tim Bourne and Efrem Mallach. Tim Bourne's definition "to travel slowly and apparently aimlessly." earned its author the deal, and Efrem Mallach can heave a sigh of relief that "In cartoons, a group of lines emanating from a light source, such as a candle, to indicate luminosity." did not earn one more vote.



Keith Hale takes runner-up position with 4 points.



The true definition was 13: "To nestle closely; to wrap up comfortably in bed; to go comfortably off to sleep. " (The English Dialect Dictionary), which 6 perceptive players guessed.



All yours, Tim!
