If you had used "Game?" directly instead of "Play?", I think it might have been solved... MAYBE.

The problem is that we don't know the definition of a clue for sure. So if we assume "play" is the definition, we can only verify that by finding an answer that matches it (unless we guess, which sometimes happens Poke tongue | ;-P ). So we start to build an answer from the rest of the clue. In this instance we try to find a word that ends with something to do with fake land.

Or, in this case, I was leaning more towards "fake land" being the definition and was trying to find an answer that starts with a synonym of "play" and obviously failed.

Well, that's just how my mind approached it anyway, others may see it differently.

Note: Sometimes you can have a "double definition" clue which would start AND end with a definition, but they don't usually have a middle bit, so it's usually pretty obvious when they come up.

Anyway, this is just my opinion, you are free to write the clue however you feel! I just thought I would explain why it was so hard, as you seemed interested in knowing Big Grin | :-D
