Arrange the alphabet (except the letter Q) in a 5x5 grid. (The first line is ABCDE, the second is FGHIJ, etc.)
A B C D E
F G H I J
K L M N O
P R S T U
V W X Y Z
Begin with any letter. Move one letter at a time horizontally, vertically or diagonally, accumulating letters in order to form a word. For example, GAB would be an acceptable word. What is the longest word you can make without reusing a letter?
I'm posting one puzzle, riddle, math, or statistical problem a day. Try to answer each one and post your answers in the comments section. I'll post the answer the next day. Even if you have the same answer as someone else, feel free to put up your answer, too!

But I'm sure there are longer ones that I'm just not seeing yet...
(Oh, and for any Android users, check out "WordUp!" in the App Market. It's fun!)
The longest word I found was Chintzy.ReplyDelete
Ooh, chintzy. That's a good one.ReplyDelete
