    Here's a quickie I just thought of.

    What comes between an egg and the number 40

    Maybe a bit far fetched, but could it be shapes:
    4+0=40
    and as the egg is zero-shaped it would be the number 4?

    But that is not "between" an egg and the number 40...

    Nope!

    But shapes are relevant.

    After the number 40 there could be a low value playing card

    I guess that is a huge clue, but I do not know any card games with an "egg" or a "40" in it... That is, taken that this is a sequence for a card game - it could be a number of other things of course.

    Sorry, drawing a blank again


    egg - 40 - low value playing card
    It is not too late, to be wild for roundabouts - to be wild for life
    Wolfsheim - It is not too late

    I'm thinking that the answer could be "The numbers 1-39," but I really hope I'm wrong because I don't have a follow-up puzzle figured out. Yeah, anyhow, probably wrong...?

    Sapphire was on the right track noticing that a zero is egg shaped. Hundreds of years ago someone else noticed this too, (A French speaker I would guess,) and a new word slipped into the language. It is only used in a sporting context though.

    Deuce? No, that's 40-40, isn't it? Vantage? Love?

    This is really hard.. i have been asking everyone home

    Does it has something to do with the life span of the egg.. which might be 40 days or weeks.. or from the production time ... whatevaaa.. i can't come up with anything..

    He lived, and when he lost his angel, died.
    It happened calmly, on its own,
    The way the night comes when day is done."

    Kasie made me think of tennis. I remembered something about "love" sounding like "l'oeuf" (French for egg) - so zero would become "egg".
    But in tennis there is 15 and 30 between "egg" and 40... and no "low value playing card" after it...

    Well, 15 and 30 seems like a good (possible) answer, ie. there could be two things.

    15-40, 30-40, deuce (40-40), vantage Miss Williams. Deuce can be used in card games for the two of whatever suit, like ace for one, I think?) - You can tell I'm not much into games of any sorts, can't you!

    If this is indeed the correct answer, please could someone else provide the next puzzle? I'm away and off-line for a week - IOU a puzzle, in that case.
