The idea of this game is to try and come up with four words that, when written in a 4x4 letter grid, spell out four new words vertically. Here's an example:

P R E Y
L A V A
O V E R
T E N D


The horizontal words are PREY, LAVA, OVER and TEND. The Vertical words are PLOT, RAVE, EVEN and YARD.

The only other rules are as follows:
1)As in Scrabble, no proper nouns.
2)No repeating words.

Have fun! smile

How's this for a try? smile (Although, I can't get the spacing neat and pretty)

F L O P
R I P E
O N U S
G E S T


The horizontal words are FLOP, RIPE, ONUS, and GEST. The vertical words are FROG, LINE, OPUS and PEST

Edited to have the smiley

Nicely done, Postcards2go! You got your first one a lot faster than I did. If you want a challenge you could try going for a 5x5.
