The Name's the Game


An earlier set of solitaire puzzles based on word charades appeared as "Musical Wordboxes" in the August 1990 Word Ways. The Present article is a sequel with a new theme. The aim of each puzzle below is to arrange the boxes into a square or rectangle in such a way that every horizontal and vertical join forms a common English word. In Figure 1, for example, one vertical join already forms the word LAUGH, and a horizontal join forms ORE.
