Kind of similar to last week's URL logic game. This is a word logic game.

You start with "a"... and eventually get to a Z-ish word

I'm currently stuck on E going to F.

I also didn't get the "a" at first either...


I'm currently stuck on H going to I.

[Eric]: what would the first thing be?

Use the source, Luke!

Henry, I'm also stuck on h -> i. My best guess so far was "eisenhower".

finished it... with a LOT of help from another source...

so here's to start people off:

(select the area below to see the first two answers)


A: "a" --> "b"
B: "bee" --> "see"
[note that "sea" also works - fred]
C: accition --> some 'd' related word

Hope you don't mind, Jess, but I thought it would be better to mask the hints (i.e. answers for the first two) a little more, for people who want to do it on their own.

Not so much "another similar one", but rather "something about".

Thanks, Ryan. Something about both of them, it turns out.

Jess - yeah, at first I just used color="white", but since they were answers rather than hints, decided to put a little more effort into finding the exact color.

Minor hint for E->F: Ignore the winner's list. Just focus on "english".

Meanwhile I'm now stuck on I->J. I think I've exhausted "another one", and am not having much luck with "something about".

Interestingly, J->K relates to the first association I had for the J - but I originally dismissed it and thought, naah, they'll go with a more mainstream reference.

And Jess' last hint is reusable (though not on J->K).

I assume at this point we're all using the same external resource?

Yeah, seems like the site has probably been suffering the slashdot effect - without (AFAIK) actually being featured on slashdot. Same general principle though - people line to the site, traffic increases, and they can't handle the increased traffic. Sounds like you're not far behind me though - I'm stuck at Q->R. But really - how many guesses do you need at L->M? Have you never been to a Starbucks?

No, I am on the letter before getting to L. I already know the next answer.

But I lost connection, so would have to start over when there is less traffic.

[Der Spritzler]: No, I am on the letter before getting to L.

Not to, ummm, spoil the suspense or anything - but most of us call that letter 'K'.

I have completed it with lots of help. But there was definitely some that I got myself.
