Three-letter word game

***Final new game for the evening!

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

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

LMBO, Jenny. Look at the response above my word, "gatekeeper." I just had to tease you. Please try again. 😉 🙂

I was trying to find something to get away from the "per" but I couldn't figure it out with the above word.
