It’s been a while since the last HH word game—so here’s something to keep you busy...

Some words, like refer and minim, are palindromes. Some words, like REFERendum and MINIMized, have palindromes inside of them—and that’s where this game comes in.

Click PLAY in the box below, and you’ll be given 30 five-letter palindromes. Above them will be a nine-letter word with five of its letters missing. All you have to do is pick the correct five letters to fill in the gap. So if the clue was PLUN_____, you’d pick the letters DERED to spell PLUNDERED. If the clue was _____ENCE, you’d pick REVER to spell REVERENCE. All seems straightforward? Let’s just say the words will be trickier than plundered and reverence—oh, and there’s only 4 minutes on the clock. That’s more like it... 

As always, use the arrows to skip the tough ones, and let HH know how you get on over on Twitter. Good luck!
