Three-letter word game

113 replies • Last post

***Final new game for the evening!

Something a bit different...and maybe a bit challenging to keep our minds working. Smile

Poster posts a word six letters or longer.

Take 3 letters from the previous word and make a new word. Any 3 letters from within the word. The goal is to keep the three letters in order, as in the example. However, if you cannot keep the letters in order, you can use any three letters from the word (last resort only).

New words must be over 6 letters long.

For example: chicken
New word: knickers

Starting word:

bananas

Yes, that is right. Except I didn't explain that you don't have to leave a new word. We use the previously posted word, which has to be 6 letters or more to make it easier for more possibilities. Here is one example:

bananas
anatomy (taking the ana to make a new word) then
stomach (taking the tom from anatomy)

so...kind of challenging.

Anyway, I will use your word, bandanas and make....

memoranda (using the and or nda from banana) Now you make a word from my word. Sorry about not explaining that part.
