7. a farewell remark

good fortune
wizardry
rate of payment
sanctum
arrivederci
shift

Although "arrivederci" is the obvious choice, "good fortune" also fits the definition.

Happy WW Trivia!

Caught this typo in an incorrect answer:

"a governor in india during the mogual empire" is the definition for "nawab"

Bolded word should be either Mughal, Moghul, or Mogul.

6. Self-depreciation
Your answer: a feeling of being of little worth


It was clear what was meant, but the word is 'self-deprecation', without the first 'I'.

I don't think members of the Catholic church consider one of their worship services a fake pill:

3. (Roman Catholic Church) vespers of the office for the dead
Your answer: menadione
menadione means "a form of vitamin K"
The correct answer was placebo

Placebo is a correct definition for "vespers of the office for the dead", actually. It's pronounced "pla-chaybo", rather than "plaseebo".

'Cyder' is actually a variant of 'cider', albeit archaic, but still a legitimate word.

Just got these two in the same game:

2. A rectangular groove made to hold two pieces together
Your answer: rabbet

14. A rectangular groove made to hold two pieces together
Your answer: quadrant
quadrant means "the area enclosed by two perpendicular radii of a circle"
The correct answer was rebate

Something not quite right there.

It looks as if rabbet and rebate are two variants of the same word. I assume you didn't have them both in the same set of options. If that is the case, I don't see the issue. There are many words in this game that offer multiple variant spellings.

"A rabbet (also known as rebate) is a recess or groove cut into the edge of a piece of machineable material, usually wood. When viewed in cross-section, a rabbet is two-sided and open to the edge or end of the surface into which it is cut."

3. An exciting or stimulting experience

Your answer: head trip

I think 'stimulating' was the word intended here.
