    #2 - Fun To Make...

    In the puzzle below, you are to place the three-letter groups into the blank grid so that nine 9-letter words are formed. When the 9-letter words are placed in the grid in the correct order , an EVENT will appear in the shaded spaces (reading top to bottom).

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Not a big discovery for sure, but there is a flaw with this type of puzzle. It's possible to solve it without actually solving it. Did you work backwards to uncover the shaded word(s) first, or did you work your way through the 9-letter words?</span hide>

    You have my vote on these puzzles, they are good fun, I like it when they come along. Remember, it is the fun of doing them. I have found that when trying to solve them I scrabble around like a stranded fish and then suddenly it cascades....that is the beauty of a well tuned puzzle...keep 'em coming <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Thank you Jerry.
    Currently looking for a way to make 'em more difficult... Like throwing in a few extra 3-letter blocks to throw you off the trail. One things for sure, we're done with the shaded spaces... <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    I w3orked out the words first, then arranged them accordingly. Nice puzzle, Ricky. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>
