The game option where skill and ingenuity are a must to master the sting in the crossword tail. Play is as per Universal Play, plus: Players need to consider including individually and strategically positioned letters into their crosswords, or protecting them from the advances of other players crosswords. If they do not, they run the risk of being eliminated from the game.
The illustration above is an example of Connoisseur Play between two players. The bottom left players individual letters are, T & R and the top right A & P. The star squares at the top and bottom have been excluded from play. The top right player has just won the game by capturing the other players letter R, by making "diagonal" contact - the sting in the crossword tail! Winning in this way is called Questique.
