    Synonyms for the words below can be found within the words themselves and the letters will be in the correct order.

    For example, the kangaroo word illuminated contains the synonym lit among its letters.

    Similarly exists hides the word is and deceased includes dead.

    Don't forget that you can now hit "reply" to this post and do not need to scroll down to the bottom so you can play no matter how many others have already guessed.

    The new board is waaay better for games, it would seem :~)

    Ok, away you go...

    Try to find synonyms in the following words:

    1. Amicable.
    5. Encourage.
    6. Recline.
    7. Before.
    8. Instructor.
    11. Indolent.
    15. Transgression.
    16. Unsightly.
    17. Destruction.
    18. Masculine.
    19. Umpteenth.
    20. Because.

    Can you find two synonyms inside these kangaroo words?

    21. Alone.
    22. Container.
    23. Frangible.
    24. Falsities.
    25. Perambulate.
    26. Expurgated.

    Just got back from the library's used book sale. Had to leave after 5 minutes. Deadly fumes. I expect there will be a tragic story on the news tonight.

    Funny, tho. I was the only one coughing.

    Are we not grateful to Cate for this game?! We are!

    Rock, I do hope you are not the stuff of a tragic library news item!

    Ok, my contributions of which I am not altogether sure, frankly

    5. Encourage - urge
    19. Umpteenth - nth

    I'm especially impressed with Diane's ambulate, ramble and Rock's fragile, frail! You are clever characters.

    between my recalcitrant computer and the confusing new board, navigatin' around these parts is gettin' pretty tricky.

    I wouldn't be surprised if everybody at the library dropped dead, Rafiki. I thought I was gonna urp in the parking lot. Who would think going to the library would be so hazardous?

    I think everydobby deserves a prize for doing so well w/ the game. I wonder if the missing expurgated word is "exed". I've seen crosswords where "alimony receivers" is "exes".

    You know, Rock, the only building I've ever been in that consistently made me feel ill was a library. We have an enormous reference library in Toronto. It's a relatively new building (20/25 years) so is probably hermetically sealed from the outside air. It's a beautiful, open plan building with terrific material but I couldn't spend more than an hour there without wanting to lie on the floor and moan. That was back in the day when I got out and before the internet got up.

    So, my point, and I do have one, is... ta da... what were you doin' in Toronto???

    "exed" is possible. I do know where the answers are but have not yet looked at them.

    What a wonderful game you bestowed on us!

    Pure is an interesting choice, but...

    (~: You know I love ya! :~)

    I'm gonna go look for those answers so I can back up Diane when she gets here.

    Peace out, fellow word freaks,


    Landagoshen, that Cate woman was right! Not only about "pure" but about "as" which I had considered and dismissed.

    And, Jean, "falsies" is right! I nearly said that as a joke!

    Reminds me of a story my mother used to tell.

    As a young woman, she was dating a pianist who was playing for her while she stood next to the piano, eyes half closed, as comely women are wont to do. He kept looking up at her seemingly unable to keep his mind on his playing with her beauty so tantalizingly close. She tossed her glossy auburn hair and smiled down at him. As she did so she noticed something odd in her peripheral vision. One of her falsies had migrated right out of her bra and was creating the impression that one of her little boobies was trying to escape!

    And, the answers are...

    1. amiable

    2. apt

    3. save

    4. hotel

    5. urge

    6. lie

    7. ere

    8. tutor

    9. part

    10. tomb

    11. idle

    12. rain

    13. debate

    14. see

    15. sin

    16. ugly

    17. ruin

    18. male

    19. nth

    20. as

    21. lone, one

    22. can, tin

    23. fragile, frail

    24. falsies, lies

    25. amble, ramble

    26. pure, purged

    The words on this list which do not correspond to the words and numbers we've been playing were in the last game so I omitted them from this one but can't see them as I edit this now and can't remember which ones to leave out. You can figure it out, I'm sure.
