Congrats to All who played and the Winner 'Pinhead'

This week the topic will go along with the Thanksgiving holliday theme. Basically, the Thanksgiving dinner. To have some fun with it, there will be a change in scoring rules for this game.

Scoring changes:

Lowest score will win.
No doubling entire entry score for Q, X, Y and Z, and they will count as one point each within the entry.
If the entry was at or connected with the first Thanksgiving Dinner, the total entry score will be cut in half. This includes Indian tribes that are from neighboring / connecting states that could have made it to the dinner.

Valid entries:

Anything connected with Thanksgiving. Then or now.
For the half score, words / names should be what was used at that time if they are known by a different name nowdays.
Tribes should include the state they are from.

Invalid entries:

Anything NOT connected with Thanksgiving.

If there is something that I've left out, or there are grey areas that need to be addressed, please reply to them in "Snake Talk" before Sunday night!

This week is kicked off by 'Dumbell' using the letter 'N'

Good Luck Everyone!

YAM
I believe that this was already an item on the native American menu before the invasion of the land grabbers. I know it's a staple of most modern turkey tables. I make a fabulous candied yam. Can't stand the things, but I cook 'em up great!

MACE


According to historians, the English enjoyed spices, and a large supply of them was on the Mayflower manifest. Mace is a spice derived from the outer covering of ******, and was commonly used at that time.

DEER


"The Pilgrims were not prepared to feed a gathering of people that large for three days. Seeing this, XXXXXXXXX gave orders to his men within the first hour of his arrival to go home and get more food. Thus it happened that the Indians supplied the majority of the food: Five deer, many wild turkeys, XXXX, XXXXX, XXXX, XXXXXXX etc."

They may have eaten LOBSTER at the first Thanksgiving.

The foundation of the famous dinner is the xxx, wild fowl, turkeys and xxxx mentioned in the preceding quotes. Added to that are other foodstuffs mentioned or known to have been available aboard the Mayflower or in Plymouth, such as . . . lobster . . .

LARD
Used for a variety of purposes - then more than now in cooking.
Also, affectionate term used by Native Americans to refer to settlers - as in "You go, Lard ***"!!!"
Sorry!!! Sarcastic kind of morning!!!!
