    UNSCRAMBLE THAT WORD!

    Here's a game designed to provide your brain with some light exercise.

    You are presented with a scrambled word, along with a hint. Unscramble the word and give a scrambled word and a hint to the next player. You can give two or more words, but we'll keep it simple to begin with, thus:


    GASPULER

    (Hint: in case you don't like Lawrence Welk )

    Update, 6-9-2010: This game has developed in several ways since it started. For one thing, a scramble usually contains several words now. And it is mandatory that each word of the scramble have the same number of letters as the corresponding word of the solution. If there is punctuation, it must be included in the scramble, too, and in the same place as in the solution. For example, LET'S BOOGIE could be scrambled as OIL'T EOBESG but not as IO GOT L'S BEE.
