Hey everyone. :wve: This is a game I just saw earlier today in the paper. I thought it was pretty cool. This is how it is played.

1. I first think of several words that have the same letters in it together, such as the letters EAR put together. These three letters will appear in the word that you must guess.

2. There have to be hints as to what the word is on the side.

I will post the first puzzle to see if you all are able to understand it. I will also give you the first answer. :) Whoever gets them all correctly first will have the next turn. Enjoy. :D And have fun!

RULES
1. Try to refrain from using Google. :p
2. If the person who gets it right fails to take their turn within 48 hours, the turn is up for grabs.
3. You must be able to guess all of the words for you to be correct and receive the next turn.


PUZZLE #1

1. EAR__...Where we live. EARTH (This is the first one I completed for you all)

2. __EAR__...A precious gem.

3. __EAR...Close by.

4. EAR__...opposite of late.

5. __EAR...The start of a letter.

6. __EAR...Emotion when scared.

inapropos?
incongruous?
indecorous?

Yeah, that's right, I own a thesaurus :cool:

If any of those are the right ones, I hope it's a case of extenuating circumstances regarding cheating, as I've never even heard of those words, and am guessing no one would have guessed it with out cheating :pi:

^ No way :vlol:

They are hard actually, Ihave this word, however strange it is for number 3: reimbursement :o

so this means so far:

4= mental.


I still don't get it, lament= mourn so why is that wrong :p

:vlol:. :p

Nope, not reimbursement. :p

Lament may also mean to mourn, but there are other words as well. I made this with specific words that I was thinking about.

:D

My English teacher just told me that to mourn= to bereft and as noun it is bereavement :D

By alter, you mean change, modify?
I mean what else than Amend/ amendment?

This is harder than I thought?

Bereavement is correct. :)

Amendment is wrong however. :p Haha yep, it is more difficult for others than I thought as well. :p

Ok. I got number 5:COMPLEMENT right? :D

Ok, can I write answers separately and then post all correct answers in a final post, or i am not allowed to do so and would be considered spam?

Must I post when I have answers for the others as well, even if they are not correct?
Or is it just fine they way I am answering?

As long as you are able to put them all down in post correctly, then you are able to take the next turn. So, other players could be stealing your words as you write them down. Once you think you have them all, post as you did before. With...
1.
2.
3.
etc.
