    Oh yes! Another round of 10 deceptively fiendish conundrums for you all to decipher

    (OK, so they're probably not that hard, but still)

    If you missed the first one (it was a while ago), the original thread is here (go to the last page to see the answers and how my clues work)

    I WILL give out nearly 200 points of Crispy goodness if you manage to get them all correct

    Answer via PM please (you may answer as many times as you wish) I will also keep you updates with your scores but don't expect a quick reply, especially as I may have quite a few to go through.

    I will set a deadline of ONE WEEK (that is, untill midnight on Wednesday 14th February), or, untill I get the first full setof correct answers.

    For the record, all cities used are taken from this list.

    Depending on how it goes I may give out continent clues in a few days time.

    Note that there may be more than one answer that fits the clue, I am only looking for one city per question.

    Good luck

    [Oh, and for the record, none of the cities in this quiz were used in the last one]

    The Questions.
    1. A college at Oxford, Cambridge, and Durham.
    2. A royal dock?
    3. To propel oneself in a boat
    4. This detective is often seen repeated on TV
    5. Pinning her down on the sea floor?
    6. Something was ripped up whilst moving quickly
    7. Sounds like a very early type of gun
    8. A colour
    9. A settlement fit for Royalty.
    10. We've all got one.
