Brain Teasers / Games


Each of the following sentences contains clues to a set of three words that are anagrams of each other (each sentence describes a different set).

1) George threw his extra javelin through two fleshy fruits related to an apple.

1) This is an automobile's domesticated animal.
2) This is a group of wolves, much like stone or bronze.
3) This is an alcoholic beverage that is made from a part of a fish.
4) This is a volume's military partner.

Group A: brad, nail, pin, piton, spike, stake
Group B: eeve, insrai, raha, rnlr, ufesbe, waebst
