Similar to land of the doubles
« on: January 16, 2006, 04:21:13 am »
OK Land of the doubles is good but it is just going around and around via the same format, and if anyone hasnt got it yet im not going to tell you now. So my game is that i will start with a word puzzle that someone has to solve and the first to get it right goes next.

Each puzzle has to follow the same format i.e, its in 'x' but not in 'y'
                                                                its in '1' but not in '2'

and so on i think about 3 or 4 lines per puzzle should be enough of course if no-one gets it the person to post should give the answer and either do an easier one or let someone else have a go.

Here are 2 examples and answers before i give my first puzzle:

its in sea but not in water
its in grass but not in green
its iin this but not in that
what is it?

Answer: the letter S

its in toilet but not in bathroom
its in news but not in reporting
its in wrapping but not in rapping

Answer: each of the first words can have the word 'paper' following them i.e toilet paper, newspaper, wrapping paper.

OK i think you should have the idea now, there are lots of variations not just words sharing a single letter to choose from. My first one should not be too difficult to get us all going.

Its in niece but not in nephew
its in friend but not in ally
its in pieces but not broken

I don't think you quite have the rules down. According to the way I interpreted them, you might want to read the rules again.

I see no rule saying it has to be more than 1 line. And Anyway how are you supposed to do that one with more than one line?

Well, that's what the unspoken rule is (As far as my understanding goes). You're not supposed to use words that can only have one line. Use things that need a couple lines, like the examples he gave. Plus, no matter what the rule is, your answer was just waaay too easy.

Anyway: I really suck at making up riddles. Someone else can go ahead.
