A lot of them are based on puns and idioms, but a lot of those are no longer in common use. Have you ever heard the experssion "beyond the pale?" Yeah, ok maybe you have. So obviously that means that when you see a bucket you have to put something on the far side of it, right? Because a bucket is a "pail" and OBVIOUSLY seeing a bucket inspires you to think of that obscure 17th century idiom.
That's the kind of stuff going on in thus game. Seriously, don't play this no matter how much you liked Piers Anthony's Xanth novels.
