      Ah, I see! That's helpful! I'll remember to disguise those "keyword" clues, like Violet, with an additional puzzle layer. :) Nice work!

      I would've started with the flower clue as well, but John beat me to it. Well done! Yay playing pieces! :D

      The flower was probably the most helpful clue. I had "Belfast" in my head pretty much from the get-go. (The Minecraft Titanic confirmed it.) A Google search for "violet ship belfast" gave me the quote I posted here.

      Wow that was lightning speed!! You're absolutely right! Excellent work! I think you solved that in under 4 minutes?!?!

      The acrylic playing pieces for Cirkusu are now unlocked!!

      Hm, perhaps I should make these trickier! ;) Thanks for solving! Did you pick through all the clues or did you only need a couple?

      "Violet Jessop was an ocean liner stewardess and nurse who survived the sinkings of both Titanic and Britannic. She was also on board Olympic when it collided with HMS Hawke in 1911."
