How to deal with failing retinas

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
