Morning dabblers, and welcome to a brand-new DA website. Well, a tighter and tidier forum anyhow, thanks to the new chat host in DisQus. (And thanks for your patience if the upload blocked your access for a while.)
Now, onto puzzly matters. I've discovered a Chicago guy called Sandy Weisz, alias The Puzzler. A lofty moniker, but Sandy fulfils the brief with a great archive of diverse brain-scratchers here. Take a dip and enjoy.
Two of his wordier teasers that still await solutions are below. Any inklings?
1. What geogrpahical trait do all these words have in common?
2. Take a common English word. Write it in capital letters. Move the first letter to the end and rotate it 90 degrees. You’ll get a new word that is pronounced exactly the same as the first word. What words are these? [There may be two solutions.]
Any other conundrums - original or imported - you wish to share? You know we love a good mind-melt in the morning. (Share your ideas, breakthroughs and forum feedback below.)
