THE WRITER GAMES, Part 6: Hockey
Welcome to The Writer Games a.k.a. the Word Olympics!
Like the real Olympic Winter Games, this contest lasts two weeks and covers a different event each day. And just like the real Olympics there will be medals, interviews and prizes. Unlike the real Olympics, these games do not include being shoved onto ice by big guys in scary masks, getting clocked in the mouth or frequent black eyes.
No, not black eyes certainly, but I can't promise you won't have Boggle-y Eyes by the end of it. That's right, folks. This weekend's event is Hockey, better known as
"Boggle for Bloggers."
There are six heats to cover you over the next two days.
Give yourself two minutes per puzzle.
Find as many words as you can in each "heat", then list them in your comments,
"Heat One: frog, log,.. Heat Two: beachball, wall..."
Find words from the letters in the square; words (in English) at least three letters in length, not proper nouns. The letters in each word must touch or corner each other. You can't use the same letter twice in one word. The person with the most words remaining after common words have been cancelled out wins.
Oh, one teeny note on this - to play fair, it's probably best if you try not to check out the comments till after you've played your heats.
There could potentially be six winners on this event.
Remember, you have until midnight on Friday, February 19 to enter any of the events. If you're just newly on board, check out last week's action to join in!
