    Back to Back (Word Game)

    This one's not an original. I stole it from a magazine but thougt it would be enjoyed here...

    Complete the puzzle by adding a three-letter word in the first set of spaces (making a new word) and then reversing your three-letter word and placing it in the second set of spaces (completing the second word). Just think of a reversible three-letter word to put in the blanks. Very simple if you can get past my instructions...

    Example: The word <font color=blue>TOP</font color=blue> could be used to solve the example. TOP reversed is POT.

    Ex. TREE __ __ __ & __ __ __ ASH TREE<font color=blue>TOP</font color=blue> & <font color=blue>POT</font color=blue>ASH
    01. FOR __ __ __ & __ __ __ ALE
    02. HAS __ __ __ & __ __ __ WORK
    03. SEE __ __ __ & __ __ __ HER
    04. ARM __ __ __ & __ __ __ TOE
    05. TAR __ __ __ & __ __ __ ION
    06. CUD __ __ __ & __ __ __ END
    07. GENT __ __ __ & __ __ __ WAY
    08. BULL __ __ __ & __ __ __ SEND
    09. BATH __ __ __ & __ __ __ TON
    10. SAND __ __ __ & __ __ __ FEST

    Re: Back to Back (Word Game)

    After seeing all of the initial responses, it appears that numbers 1 and 5 are still open for puzzling enjoyment! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Back to Back (Word Game)

    Okay - your response to #1 was "oddly enogh" correct? So says the magazine...but I could not find a definition for <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>TAM</font color=yellow></span hi> in the online ditionary I use. No matter, you get the points.

    The response to #5 still does not jibe with the magazines answer page! Though I could find definitions for <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>MAC</font color=yellow></span hi> and <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>CAM</font color=yellow></span hi> , those words are a bit "iffy". Got to let you have it as the instructions did not disallow capitalized words... But I could not find a definition for <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>CAMION</font color=yellow></span hi> ! So, you don't get this one!

    So the trophy will go to the one who can come up with the correct response to Q5.

    Steve,

    By themselves, <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>GER, REG </font color=yellow></span hi> and <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>NAT</font color=yellow></span hi> are not words. You must use three letter reversible words to complete the puzzle. <img src=/S/cop.gif border=0 alt=cop width=15 height=24>
