Words Without Words [1]

Noting the simplicity and overabundance of 'Words Within Words' quizzes on the site, I decided I'd need to find a way to one-up the concept. This quiz asks you to create a word *without* using the letters provided. Good luck!

Words Without Words [2]

Remember playing all of those 'Words Within Words' quizzes? Well, they won't help you here. I give you a word and you get to guess what word(s) you need to make without it. Way to break the mold, eh? Good luck!

Falling Trees by Tim Burr

Some people have names which sound suspiciously similar to actual words. This concept has been used for wordplay for years, and certainly isn't a new idea. Can you match these name puns with the types of books they could write?
