This may not be an according to hoyle lateral puzzle but here goes

This is a game we used to play (usually in the pub) called connections. The setter gives three clues to objects, places,people etc. that have a connection. Your mission is to identify them and provide the connection.

So here it is. BTW this is one of the harder ones


A group of villians , a 20 euro bill & a rather fortunate fellow.

Is it "villian" according to the following definition: To be notorious for being better than everyone. to always be in the top to of something they have accomplished?
Did the fortunate fellow win anything? the 20 euro bill?
Did there happen anything involving the villians the bill and the fellow? if yes is the place where this happened relevant? Are there more objects? or people involved?
Are any occupations relevant? relations between the persons?
Would this work with coins instead of a bill? with a cheque? a piece of paper?

Is it "villian" according to the following definition: To be notorious for being better than everyone. to always be in the top to of something they have accomplished? No just villians as in wrong doers or lawless people
Did the fortunate fellow win anything? may have done but not relevant the 20 euro bill? no
Did there happen anything involving the villians the bill and the fellow? each are completely separate of each other but when you establish who or what they are there is a connection if yes is the place where this happened relevant? so no to this Are there more objects? no or people involved? no
Are any occupations relevant? no relations between the persons? no and beware of the assumption that these are all persons
Would this work with coins instead of a bill? no with a cheque? no a piece of paper? possibly

does this fortunate fellow have a name? such as "Lucky Jim"? or is the idea that we are looking for a generic term for a fortunate fellow?

does this group of villains have a name? such as "The Great Train Robbers"? or is the idea that we are looking for a generic term for a group of villains?

would this puzzle work with a bill of another denomination? a 20-dollar bill? a five-pound note?

The 20 euro note depicts the gothic age of European development. Is gothic relevant?
The front of euro notes show windows and gateways. Are windows relevant? Gateways?
The back of euro notes show stylised bridge designs. Bridges relevant?
The designs on the Euro notes were created by Austrian artist Robert Kalina. I assume because he designed them all (not just the 20) that he is not relevant?
Is the size of the 20 euro note relevant (133x72mm)?

I am afraid that my knowledge of superhuman villains is severely limited (though you should see what my so-called partner did to me at bridge the other day...), but a couple of questions can't go amiss. Are these villains the enemies of a single superhero? Superman? Batman? Does this lucky fellow also appear in comics? In books? In a film? A television programme?

Be delighted to .

This puzzle is based on a game my friends and i occasionally play called connections. The idea is that the setter gives clues to the names of or a possible description of 3 people, places, animals, objects etc. which have a link. The object is to identify the 3 items and provide the link.

To give you an easy example

A store of weapons, a flower show & a horse race.

Answers could be Arsenal, Chelsea and Derby which are all english football teams.

In this puzzle we have ascertained that the group of villians is the wrecking crew ? the rather fortunate fellow is a horse with a two word name the first of which is Lucky and the second is a mans name. As for the 20 euro bill we have established that the fact that it's blue is relevant but any symbols or design on the bill are not relevant?

Hope this helps and precipitates a flood of questions

By the way, What do all the question marks mean in your recap?

Any relevant name for fellow? Chap? Is the end translation of the 20 euro "Blue bill"? Blue something? Blue dollar?

So we have (assumedly) 2 of the 3 words: Wrecking crew, Blue bill. The blue bill sounds like a bird, are the 3 answers about birds?

I thought the 20-euro bill was some kind of clue for "blue note", as in Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. The Wrecking Crew were also, of course, musicians. Is any of this relevant?

Blue note? Blue banknote? Does the blue ___ mean blue dollar? A synonym for paper relevant? Blue paper? Are any symbols on the 20 euro note relevant? Blue check?

Is Horse Racing relevant by chance? (I read your post in the chatroom)

If horse racing is relevant, is blue the color representing the horse? (I actually know nothing about horse races, sadly)
....Lucky Fellow? Lucky John, Gary, Kyle, Alex, Joe, Bob, Rich..Oh!
Lucky Rich? it has to do with money... (I am hoping)
But I'm lost as to where the villians fit in...

Wow it's either a feast or a famine on the forum these days.

I thought the 20-euro bill was some kind of clue for "blue note", yes as in Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes.but not this example The Wrecking Crew were also, of course, musicians. Is any of this relevant? music is irrelevant but blue note is correct

Blue note? yes Blue banknote? Does the blue ___ mean blue dollar? A synonym for paper relevant? no Blue paper? no Are any symbols on the 20 euro note relevant? no Blue check? no

Does Lucky's second name start with an "f"? "ph"? no
fred? frank? phil? so no

Is Horse Racing relevant by chance? (I read your post in the chatroom)yes it is

If horse racing is relevant, is blue the color representing the horse? no(I actually know nothing about horse races, sadly)no great knowledge of horses is required but a knowledge of something else is
....Lucky Fellow? Lucky John, Gary, Kyle, Alex, Joe, Bob, Rich..Oh! no to all
Lucky Rich? no it has to do with money... (I am hoping) no the connection is not money
But I'm lost as to where the villians fit in...

We have established that 2 of the 3 answers are Wrecking Crew & Blue Note and the 3rd is lucky ......?. Also horse racing is relevant

This puzzle will be solved in the next 2 posts i wager

Wrecking Crew, Blue Note and Lucky Dan are the three racehorses involved in the confidence trick played upon Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw) by Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman) and Johnny Hooker (Robert Redford) in George Roy Hill's 1973 film The Sting. I won't say any more, in case people haven't seen the film, which I would strongly recommend that they do.

**************Spoiler***************

Woubit has summed that up nicely. My friends and I are very interested in movie history and trivia so this puzzle was great fun to solve. It took us ages by the way.

And couldn't agree more that anyone who has not seen the movie should do so. The Sting is definately in my all time top 3 movies. Paul Newman was never better. The poker scene on the train between Newman & Shaw is probably my favourite movie clip of all time and Newmans pretend drunken first line in the scene is in my opinion the funniest one liner on film
