trivia quiz  Words Without Words [1] cool 10 questions
Average, 10 Qns, kyleisalive, Mar 13 11

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!
