I reckon I recognise 38 of those words.

Check the real meanings here (it's the second of the two posts).

I only got 26 right. I imagine I know the meaning of a word, but when it comes down to it all I know is 'it's a town somewhere' or 'a kind of game of some sort'.

FWIW these are the words I knew (as opposed to thought I knew).
