A podcast appeared on Victoria This Week, featuring stories about life in Victoria, BC. Three topics were discussed, one of which was about the Levidrome beer manufactured by Phillips Brewing. At the end of the levidrome segment, James Ball and Ryan Price played a game which they called Cryptic Clues. They had 5 cryptic clues:
Cryptic Clue: A bakery ignores you.
Answer: SNUB - BUNS
Cryptic Clue: I need some cash to change the baby.
Answer: DIAPER - REPAID
Cryptic Clue: Seinfield's neighbor has comment for you.
Answer: KRAMER - REMARK
Cryptic Clue: The greek god of thunder likes canals.
Answer: ZEUS - SUEZ
Cryptic Clue: Ben Afflick's BFF walks the earth.
Answer: DAMON - NOMAD
Shortly after this segment aired, Cryptic clues started to be seen on the Lucky Budd Twitter Account. or the Daily Levidrome Twitter Account. Every week, there would be a clue to a levidrome pair. You would try to guess what the levidrome pair is based on the clue. It was one of the first levidrome games to come out.
