Puzzle: USA Road Trip

Filed under: Puzzles,Wordplay — Tags: , — Screenhog @ 9:05 am

Alphie and Bettie have decided to take an unusual road trip through some of the United States, so they got in their car and started driving. They started in a state that had the letter K in its name, then drove to a neighbouring state with the letter L in its name, then to a state with the letter M, a state with the letter N, a state with the letter O, and ended at a state with the letter P. They only drove through six states in total, and never drove through the same state twice. Can you figure out the trip that they took?

Twelve Words

Filed under: Puzzles,Wordplay — Screenhog @ 1:25 pm

P.S. I’ve been a bit busy lately (those who know me personally will understand why), and while I plan to maintain my twice-a-week update schedule, I doubt I’ll be able to do much more than that. Just letting you know in advance.

Movies + Characters

Filed under: Puzzles,Wordplay — Tags: — Screenhog @ 2:53 pm

How well do you know Disney/Pixar movies? The jumbles of letters below each contain the name of a movie made by Disney or Pixar, along with one of the characters, but the words are mixed together. For instance, if the clue was LAITTLREMERIMEAIDL, the answer would be “Little Mermaid” and “Ariel” (I put the letters of “Ariel” in bold so that it would be easier to see).

Can you figure out the other movies and characters?

1. WTOOYOSTDOYRY
2. ALGEANDIDINE
3. LISIOMBNKINAG
4. GEPIPENOCTCHITOO
5. CAMARTSER
6. WEAVELLE
7. JUMNOGLWEGBLOOKI
8. SPETMEREPANE
9. OARISMATOCLATLESY
10. HEMEGERCURLEAS
