Here's a new type of Wednesday Wordplay challenge for today's mentalfloss.com Brain Game. Enjoy!
The following list contains seven different five-letter words. For each individual word, the blanks contain the same letter of the alphabet. (For instance, the clue "_ L U _ _" would lead you to the letter "F" to make the word FLUFF.)
Some blanks may be open to more than one answer, but only one is considered correct. And if you choose the correct letters going down the list, you'll notice that the seven letters you've added can be read in order to form a seven-letter word. Good luck!
E _ _ O _ L _ V _ _A _ _ E _ G _ _ S _ _ _ R I _ _ U _ _ Y _ I _ _ Y
Here are the ANSWERS.
E R R O R
L E V E E
A D D E D
G E E S E
E E R I E
M U M M Y
S I S S Y
And the seven-letter word formed with the answer letters is REDEEMS.
Thanks for playing!
