Chain Letters Game
Who would have thought that when Haggard Hawks tweeted its first tweet back in 2013 we would be here now, sitting on an increasingly crowded nest of 55,000 of you lovely people? Blimey. So thank you, all of you, for just generally being amazing. Let’s all have a drink sometime, aye? We’re buying.
But we couldn’t let another HH milestone go by without, y’know, ruining your week with a horrifically difficult game. So here goes nothing.
We’re calling this new game Chain Letters. Click PLAY in box the below and you’ll be shown 40 English words. Above them will be a clue, almost like a sum, the answer to which will be one of the words beneath it. So if the clue was “WORD + E = ?”, you would click the answer rowed—because the letters of WORD, plus a letter E, can be rearranged to spell rowed. The next clue would pick things up from there: “ROWED + P = ?” would lead you to the answer powder. “POWDER - D = ?” would then lead you to the word power, and so on, in one long word chain—changing and rearranging the letters as directed at each stage—until all the words are used up. It’s as, er, simple as that.
None of those are real clues, of course; telling you that would make things far too easy. And so would not having a time limit—so yes, there’s only 5 minutes on the clock, in which to link all 40 words in the chain. Hoo, boy. This is a tricky one...
As always, let us know how you get on over on Twitter—and best of luck!
