I’ve only played it once, and that was in a pub in Bright, but shuffleboard is the ideal game to to use a Birdbrain springboard. Because if you shuffle a board-type (such as ‘shuffle’), and drop the new combo into each cluster below, you’ll spell a common word. For example, a shuffled DART converts leo(4) into leo-TARD, while a tweaked KEY turns che(3) into che-EKY. Are you bright enough to bag all twelve?
Care to extend the list? Or create a new mixable category?
