Are these two answers too similar?
« on: October 18, 2016, 06:26:41 PM »
Hi everyone - working on a puzzle that at the moment contains the answers FARROCKAWAY and POURAWAY. Are these too similar to include together because of the repeated AWAY? One is across and the other down if that makes a difference.

Also, does POURAWAY work for you guys in general as a phrase? Clued as "Enthusiastic reply to 'want a drink?'" or something similar?

Thanks for the help!

The words are not dupes because Rockaway is an anglicization of a native American word, so should be no problem there. POUR AWAY is probably OK, though some editors would want clue it in a different sense ("leave in droves").
