Word Game: If I give you BVI, the answer is obvious...

Here's a fun game you can play with friends. I'll give you a sequence of letters. Your goal is to find a common English word that has those letters exactly in that order with no additional letters in between. As the title implies, if I gave you "BVI" you could reply with "oBVIous". Got it?

To get you started, here are a few combinations to try:
HTG, WKW, UMF, PTC, GGP, AUE and HMM...

Good luck, and feel free to post any letter combinations of your own that might be fun to try.

  7. Cookieface, you'll need HPA to go with your HBR.

  8. Blaine-I do not know if we are on the same page with the words with HBR and HPA...there might be more than one word for each of these letters. Or maybe there is some connection with the two words in question???????? We will have to share the words--just say the word and we will compare.

  9. My initial thought on HBR was something you might need after a meal, hence the corresponding HPA. I thought of a couple other solutions for HBR including a horse and a synonym for intellectual. Are either of those the one you were thinking of?

  10. Geez--you are really good--the synonym for intellectuall was exactly what I had in mind. And I was not sure if I wanted to give the clue as GHB as opposed to HBR. Now I need to figure out the HBR that you were thinking of that does indeed go with HPA. I am on the same page just have to work on HBR a little while longer, unless you just want to give me the word--I will work at it in the meantime.

  12. Yes, happysteve, I was. And now I have HTG. I also know Blaine's words for HBR and HPA. HBR doesn't work for this puzzle as there are at least two words that come to mind.
