Why would you think they're not the TYPE for chess? Batman is often called the "World's Greatest Detective".

I think that's just an overdose of HYPE. Sherlock Holmes was the great detective!

I should HOPE so!

Though I was under the impression that

Big Max was the world's
greatest detective.
Everyone knew it.
The King of Pooka Pooka knew it.

(quoted from Big Max by Kin Platt, Harper & Row, Publishers, Inc. 1965.)

I'm sure the POKE was just to put the word in a sentence ...



Not to put a damper on the game, I'm wondering if names or trademarks should be allowed? Most word games don't allow names.
So far, with the exception of Hugh, there has been alternative usage for the names (Bill, Dale, Coke).
