Back to Basics

Yes, I know it is a long time since my last post. But in a game on the last club night I played someone who I thought would absolutely know the best letter group, but they did not. They knew SATIRE was a great 6 letter stem, and it is, but ANTIES is even better. So here are all the 7 letter words you can make with ANTIES plus one more letter. On the combinations with lots of options make sure you know them all. Sometimes only one will fit on the board.


A ENTASIA - TAENIAS

B BANTIES - BASINET - BESAINT - BESTAIN

C ACETINS - CANIEST - CINEAST

D DESTAIN - DETAINS - INSTEAD - NIDATES - SAINTED - SATINED

- STAINED

E ETESIAN (Can be pluralised even though it looks like an adjective)

F FAINEST - NAIFEST

G EASTING - EATINGS - GAINEST - GENISTA - INGATES - INGESTA

- SEATING - TANGIES - TEASING - TSIGANE

H SHEITAN - STHENIA

I ISATINE

J JANTIES - TAJINES

K INTAKES - KENTIAS

L EASTLIN - ELASTIN - ENTAILS - NAILSET - SALIENT - SALTINE

- SLAINTE - STANIEL - TENAILS

M ETAMINS - INMATES - MAINEST - MANTIES - TAMEINS - TAMINES

N INANEST - NANITES - STANINE - TANNIES

O ATONIES

P PANTIES - PATINES - SAPIENT - SPINATE

Q No word for Q - Find a U on the board for ANTIQUES or QUANTISE

R ANESTRI - ANTSIER - NASTIER - RATINES - RESIANT - RETAINS

- RETINAS - RETSINA - STAINER - STARNIE - STEARIN

S ENTASIS - NASTIES - SEITANS - SESTINA - TANSIES - TISANES

T INSTATE - SATINET - TANTIES

U AUNTIES - SINUATE

V NAIVEST - NATIVES - VAINEST

W AWNIEST - TAWNIES - WANIEST - WANTIES

X ANTISEX - SEXTAIN

Y No word for Y - 6 words you might make with a letter on the board:

CYANITES, DESYATIN, YEASTING, KYANITES, EPINASTY, YAWNIEST

Z ZANIEST - ZEATINS


ANTIES makes a 7 letter word with every letter except Q and Y.


SATIRE is a great stem as well but it doesn't make 7 letter words with J, Q, U, X, Y and Z


Happy Scrabbling
