1. ## Squares

Two puzzles here.
<UL><LI>In Puzzle 1, you are to form the longest word possible by picking a starting letter, then moving from square to square. You may move diagonally, vertically or horizontally. Backwards, forwards, up and down. The only rule is that you cannot use the same letter square twice.
<LI>In Puzzle 2, you are looking for 7 different words. The words are all related in some fashion, category or subject. As, blue, red, white, etc. would all be colors. Like the first puzzle, you may move from letter to letter as in Puzzle 1. You may re-use a square for a different word but you cannot re-use a square within a word.

Rob...

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>I found a definition for GASTRULATION but not GASTULATION. If you can prove it's a word, I'll declare you the winner, as it's certainly longer than the word I thought I hid...</font color=yellow></span hi>

Ricky,

I knew the word ' <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>gastrulation</font color=yellow></span hi> ' from my Biochem days but I thought I recalled the word ' <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>gastula</font color=yellow></span hi> '. Googling revealed many sites referring to this word but they appear all to involve spelling mistakes (try it). Thus, I cannot prove it and I humbly concede. I'll keep on trying. Nice puzzle.

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Squeal</font color=yellow></span hi> ? I'm still trying.

Good word but there's one better.

9. ## Re: Squares

After putting on my glasses, <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>speculate</font color=yellow></span hi> came into focus.

10. ## Re: Squares

Another good word, still one better.

Brilliantly thought through puzzles, Ricky. You provide so many blind alleys to investigate. <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
