The images below are connected by a single word:

A Knight in shining armour with shield and lance

The Silhouette of a Cat

A bar of gold

A golf club

Fire

A fair ground

What is the word, and what are the connections?

  • $\begingroup$ If you were Japanese or Chinese, you could play this sort of thing with the ideograph characters rather than pictures; and in fact they have such puzzles in those cultures (commonly appearing in newspapers and magazines). $\endgroup$ – Kaz Jan 17 '18 at 23:02

Could it be

BLACK?

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ This was my first impression as well, but I couldn't get it to fit the last two (or the title, beyond some vague "civil rights" link). $\endgroup$ – F1Krazy Jan 17 '18 at 13:17

    $\begingroup$ @F1Krazy My first thought from the title was that it might be one of those "riddles for dirty minds", the second image being "pussy". $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Jan 17 '18 at 13:22
  • $\begingroup$ Really not bad. I was worried I'd made this too broad until I got to the last couple. +1 $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jan 17 '18 at 13:49
  • $\begingroup$ @Brent Having seen the accepted answer, I do agree that it fits better. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Jan 17 '18 at 13:50

I think the answer is

Fortune

This is my explainations

A soldier of fortune is an adventurer or a mercenary
Black cat either means bad or good fortune depending on the local folklore
"Of fortune and gold" is a movie
There is a golf course at fortune bay
"Fire and fortune" is a song by Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker
Theme park: tickets of fortune is a video slot machine

    $\begingroup$ Not bad. these explanations are reaching a little further than you'd need to with the 'correct' answer. +1 though $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jan 17 '18 at 13:02

    $\begingroup$ Yeah, I feel like I found only half the matches and then searched on Google for possibilities to fill the rest. The funniest one is that I came up with gold is fortune because of the french meaning of fortune $\endgroup$ – Florian Bourse Jan 17 '18 at 13:04
  • $\begingroup$ @BrentHackers the answer is correct and only the explanations are wrong? $\endgroup$ – Gustavo Gabriel Jan 17 '18 at 13:06
  • $\begingroup$ @GustavoGabriel No. The answer is not correct. Sorry, I really didn't make that clear, did I? $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jan 17 '18 at 13:08
  • $\begingroup$ @BrentHackers No problem, just asking to see if I can keep looking for the answer or if I should improve the explanations :) $\endgroup$ – Gustavo Gabriel Jan 17 '18 at 13:09

Another alternative i thought of, fitting for a good number of them:

Fish

Knight

Spearfish

Cat

Catfish

Gold

Goldfish

Club

Fishstick

Fire

Fish.. roasted by fire? Firefish? Crimsonfish? (This is when it all falls apart)

Carnival

Clownfish (a stretch, i know)

$\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'd say it fell apart at club mate ha ha. Even if I recognised 'fishstick' as a real word (don't tempts me to add a UK tag), using a golf club to represent a stick would be a stretch for me. Some good fits though, really. +1 (And at least a firefish is an actual real world thing, if not common knowledge) $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jan 18 '18 at 8:00
