I'm going to feel happy I didn't get revenge but did get challenge. I like to think that's a good mindset xD

tfw your brain is able to think of "equid" and "pentacle" but not "thief" or "umpire."

Great work as always!

For some reason it "feels" to me like 'druid' is a proper noun that would be capitalized...

"Abrupt" would be another good one to add.

Yeah, it seems conspicuously absent from the list. I guess because they wanted the same number in each category?

If I included 'abrupt', I'd have to also include the other 6 letter word that ends in 'rupt'. So I left those two out.

That other six letter word that ends in “rupt” is irrupt, if anyone’s wondering

21/24 on the first attempt.

Kind of annoyed that "barnacle" doesn't work as an 8-letter word ending in -acle... seems like it should be valid, right?

Congrats on 21/24 on your first attempt! Barnacle is not valid, because the word-ending required is 'tacle', not just 'acle'.

Vampire has seven letters, not six.

Interrupt?

Level 71
Jan 28, 2023
Interrupt has nine letters, and you need to find words with five, seven and eight letters.

I think equid is too obscure of a word and should be excluded.

Great quiz Kiwi. I got 20/24. It's the longer ones that really test you.
