Jan 06, 2006

That's not what I meant lol. There's some website... gives you a bunch of words out of any random letters you type in there... haha

if a squirrel is killed by a falling tree with nobody around, does it make a sound?
TehIgnored*us*
Mar 17, 2006

I thought I had to build on the previous word, always using the same letter....ie

I
It
Hit


so on and so forth.
lorelle_b*us*
Apr 01, 2006

Wow! Great one. And that is one freaking long list
xdbtcpAus*
May 24, 2006

me too TehIgnored - I got:
I
IS
HIS
THIS
HEIST
THESIS
then I gave up....
Smudgeza*
May 25, 2006

following xdbtcp's rule, you could still have:
i
it
sit
mist
smith
theism
homiest
mothiest
methodist
methodists

following TehIgnored's rules: (i assume he meant you can't change the order of the letters either), you could have:

i
it
dit
dite
dites
...

i don't think you can get further than 5 letters, but feel free to prove me wrong!
sabrefang
Aug 24, 2006

I didn't get it. I thought each word had the last one in it.
I
IS
HIS
THIS
...didn't get any further.

Sep 02, 2006

that loooong list may have come from anagram.com but judging from the words missing and the words that aren't words my guess is it came from the ntworld Scrabble Solver. I didn't use the pages address as I don't know if the site rules allow a full address. I was able to solve it, but like others my words were different using the rule described above.

May 07, 2007

i liked this one because it could have more than one answer, but i didn't come up with any others for the 9 and 10 letters words besides the answers.

I assumed you weren't allowed to change any letters you had previously added... Quite confusing rules.
spikethru4*au*
Jul 29, 2013

Greenapples, the rules were clear; it was your assumption that confused things.
