I think cribbage is 15 in any case.

46 c) is J (months of the year)
46 d) Is it 1? I can only think it's the units column when adding in Base 12.

Has anyone got the Swiss signs yet? That is really bugging me!

46 c) is months of the year but the question mark is after the N, I think the ... indicates there is a group before the clue.

46 d) fantastic answer, it is 1 based on a 12 hour clock

It's related to the words, but not the whole words/Towns
