We sometimes get sick of the Dutch language too, I really dislike using the "Dutch" version of Windows, yuk
Although a lot of words are the same in German, some words can mean something totally different.
For instance "bellen" means using the phone in Dutch, but in German it means "barking".
Imagine the confusion when Dutch people are asking if they can use the phone in Germany: "kann Ich hier bellen?"
how are we supposed to know that "drab rats" is the mirrored part?
There are literally no other ananyms in the sentence. The mere presence of the word 'mirror' should have triggered a search for an ananym.
I am purposely using low frequency words in all of my CCC to prevent players from using the internet to solve them. I assumed that "Bard Star" would be immediately located but "Elvis" and "Presley" are proper nouns and would not be in the internet thesaurus or anagram solver.
I guess it forces the player to use their problem solving skills rather than internet searches.
I actually spent a few minutes searching for a British bard. But I couldn't make anagrams from their names. Then I considered changing to the feminine diva/avid ananym but couldn't make a decent clue from it.
