Question Of The Week 18 April - Time For A Major Brain Drain!

HAH! I got you Brainiacs this week!! We’re going to play a variation of “Word Seek”. Instead of me providing you the words you get to provide me the words. Here are the details.

  • In this puzzle are 40 words related to construction and homes.
  • Watch it as it appears the generator might have added one or two more.
  • These are all single words with no abbreviations/acronyms/combined words/etc.
  • The first person to get all 40 of course wins.
  • If nobody gets them all them the first to get 30 or more at the end of the week wins.

Good luck you Inspector Brainiacs I got you this time! HAH :japanese_ogre: :japanese_ogre:

Please if you have already won 3 or more times let others give it a try first.

Please read the Introduction and requirements, changes may have been made.

A member of the Awards Committee will post questions, at a random day/time.

Eligible members may make one post per question thread to answer the questions, and the eligible member’s winning entry must have all parts of the questions answered completely in that one post. Editing your one answer post allowed will result in disqualification.

Any disregard to the above and divulging the correct answers or giving hints/references will cause a disqualification.

EXCELLENT TRY Bert! However there are no orthographic neighbors in this word search. In this case an orthographic neighbor is a word created by dropping a letter or letters at the beginning or end of another word. These are all full words even though some may contain another word or derivative word.

Congratulations though since you did identify three of the words the puzzle generator added by itself! And one it misspelled?? :smile:

There still time to take this win you other Inspector Brainiacs!! Yes if you catch the extra words that Bert did you will get credit for those!


Hey Roy, I’m not clear on what rule I broke, or if that is even what you are trying to say. Could you please explain your post?
Thanks, Buddy.

What that is intended to mean is that if you are not trying to win QOTW then do not provide individual answers. In other words yes Bert gave hints but he was trying to win QOTW and answered in good faith. Now if someone was to come up and just post a few answers out of many knowing they will not win and instead just giving hints then that is what that rule was intended for.

Jeez you Brainiacs are killing me!! Looks like it’s time to call it with Stephen Snyder as the Winner with 40 of the 44 in the Word Search puzzle, 40 I put in and 4 the system generated (how cool was that?)!

I’ll get you Inspector Brainiacs yet! :wink:

Here are the answers this week. There are other words in there but they are not descriptive enough by themselves.

System generated words.

The words I put in.


Congratulations to Stephen. Nice job.
