How to deal with failing retinas

January 29, 2018

RETINA is a really good group of 6 letters. If the 7th letter is any one of 20 different letters then you have at least one 7 letter word on your rack.

 

However that leaves 6 letters – AQVXYZ – where RETINA fails to make a 7 letter word for you. What you have to do then is look around the board for a letter to play through and hopefully you can make one of these 8 letter words:

 

RETINA – A     B =      ATABRINE, RABATINE
                        C =       CARINATE, CRANIATE
                        D =      DENTARIA, RAINDATE
                        G =      AERATING
                        J =        NAARTJIE
                        M =     ANIMATER, MARINATE
                        O =      AERATION
                        P =       ANTIRAPE
                        S =     
ANTISERA, ARTESIAN, RATANIES, RESINATA, SANTERIA, SEATRAIN
                        T =       ATTAINER, REATTAIN
                        U =      INAURATE
                        W =     ANTIWEAR
                        Z =       ATRAZINE

RETINA – Q    U =      ANTIQUER, QUAINTER

RETINA – V     C =       NAVICERT
                        G =      AVERTING, GRIEVANT, TAVERING, VINTAGER
                        L =       INTERVAL
                        R =       VERATRIN
                        U =      VAUNTIER
                        W =     VAWNTIER

RETINA – X     C =       XERANTIC
                        G =      RETAXING
                        P =       EXPIRANT

RETINA – Y     L =       INTERLAY
                        M =     TYRAMINE

RETINA – Z     A =       ATRAZINE
                        I =        TRIAZINE
                        O =      NOTARIZE

 

The answers to the last quiz were:           RAINCOAT, ANTIDORA, AERATION, NOTARIAL, RATIONAL, ANIMATOR, MONTARIA and TAMANOIR

 

The quiz in this blog has a theme. They are all 7 letter words with two A’s.

As usual they are supposed to get harder as you go further down the list.

 

A – A – B – I – N – S – T

A – A – B – I – O – R – T

A – A – B – E – L – N – O

A – A – D – E – I – M – R

A – A – D – G – I – M – R

A – A – C – D – L – O – R

A – A – B – I – G – N – R

A – A – D – E – L – R – Y

A – A – B – D – E – R – W

A – A – B – E – H – R – S
