Triple Threats

Alexander and I both played 8 letter words on Monday night which were from high probability combinations that had 3 possible anagrams. In my case I knew ORIENTAL, RELATION, TAILERON. There are two normal words there, but I needed the unusual one – TAILERON – to get the best score.


Alexander’s combo of AUNTLIER, RETINULA, TENURIAL didn’t have any commonly used words. He played TENURIAL, but he quoted all 3 words.


A Grade Challenge  

 

Just 3 racks for you this week. However, every rack has 3 answers, so there are 9 words for you to find:

 

A     C     E     L     O     R     S     S

A     B     E     I      L     N     S      S

A     E     E     G     L     R     S     S

 

Each combination has a double S. There are a few answers that are the plural of a 7 letter word, but many of them are not.


B & C Grade Study List

 

Here are 12 more high prob triple threat 8 letter combos.

This week I won’t give you the meanings, just say the three words together. Maybe the phrase will come to you if you spot one of these words, so then you will remember the other two. That is the way my brain works, but everyone has a different brain. If knowing the meaning is important to your learning process, then look them up. For me that just gets in the way of thinking of them as bang, bang, bang.

 

AILERONS, ALERIONS, ALIENORS


ANEROIDS, ANODISER, DONARIES


ANOINTER, INORNATE, REANOINT


DARIOLES, SOLIDARE, SOREDIAL


DETAILER, ELATERID, RETAILED


DETRAINS, RANDIEST, STRAINED


ELATIONS, INSOLATE, TOENAILS


ELATERIN, ENTAILER, TREENAIL


ENARGITE, GRATINEE, INTERAGE


IDEATION, IODINATE, TAENIOID


IGNAROES, ORGANISE, ORIGANES


INERTIAS, RAINIEST, SATINIER

 

If you include the two combinations, I mentioned in the preamble that makes a total of 14 combinations. 42 words. You won’t use one of those words every week, but chances to play them will come.
