Last week we toyed with threes – and this week we shave that tally to two. A test to see who can come up with the best trio of indicators for any two-letter cluster. Album cover, say, is a refreshing signpost for AM, just as exercise tips (EE) or Heart of Darkness (KN) may sneak past the unwary solver.
Simple game, but a challenge to conquer with dash and originality. Like those last three examples, keep them within the bounds of fair (FR?!), but feel free to push the envelope to see what novel coinages are out there. Your reward, if you dream up the best trio, is a bizarre glossary compiled by Craig Conley: A Dictionary of One-Letter Words. (Things are on a downsizing trend, eh?)
Submit your stuff with indicator (then denoted letters), so that Dabblers can easily scan the forum. Here’s another sampler:
Hollow log (LG)
Extreme prejudice (PE)
No troubles if two players target the same two letters, as there are multiple ways to depilate a tabby. Before nine on Thursday, I’d be grateful if everyone can hand-pick their pet three, as this will lighten the admin load. So with a prize to seize, it’s 3-2-1, GO."
