(being a collection of riddles, trivia, plays on words, jokes, homophones, synonyms, similes, and, ever so piquant, the very rare pun, &c.)

All of the answers are game titles.

The numbers following each entry is the number of words, and the number of letters in each word.

Thus, if a title consists of multiple words, the length of each word is mentioned separately.

Thus,...

"Must go (4,4)" would be “Can’t Stop”

"Posada’s macabre inspiration (3,2,3,7)" is of course, “Dia de los Muertos”

For best effect, and bragging rights, one should attempt to answer as many as possible simply from the amassed wisdom and knowledge carried within yourself. Once it becomes apparent that certain entries are stumpers truly, then one may assess all of the means of seeking unrevealed knowledge that is at your disposal. One could even ask members of your non-game-playing family.

Once a correct answer is discerned in a comment, I will update the entry with the appropriate denotation and picture.

(Note: this game was inspired by the work of another geek'ster, whose name I no longer have -- kudos to you, whereever you are)

---------------------------------------

Thanks for playing, and hope it was a pleasant idle pastime.

Last one! And... Done!

Thanks to everyone who played. I hoped it brought a few moments of fun to your day. Because, frankly, it was clearly more work than it was worth, and if you didn't enjoy, then I'd have to re-evaluate my existence.
