Same rules as last time: click PLAY in the box below, and you’ll be given 30 three-letter words. Above them will be a nine-letter word with its middle three letters missing—all you have to do is pick the correct three-letter word to fill in the gap. So if the clue was DIS___TLE, you’d pick MAN to spell DISMANTLE. If the clue was TOM___ISH, you’d pick BOY to spell TOMBOYISH. And there’s only three minutes on the clock... 

Let us know how you get on over on Twitter—and good luck!
