Topic: Anagram question
Message: Posted by: Roth (Apr 21, 2005 07:35PM)
I'm working on a routine with an anagram and have a root of 1x6 for seven words.
One word will be 100%, 6 words are known with 1 miss.

I'm trying to get to a 1x7 root. 8 words one is 100% 7 known with 1 miss.
I'm using words specific to the routine which are not unusual words but I'm unable to get to a 1x7 root. I can't get an eighth word to work.

Is this possible to do? 1 perfect and 7 with one miss?

Thanks

Hi Myster,

If you are thinking about this the way that I think you are, then it certainly is possible.

I do know of several lists of words that use this formula. However, they are not mine to share. Having said that, they really are not that difficult to make up if you really think carefully. Just a little time consuming.

Mind you, if the words you require are to fit a certain topic, then I understand why you may be finding it difficult. Perhaps if you gave us more of an insight into your routine it would help.

PM me if you would prefer to discuss in private.

Myster -

I have a list of 14 words I can get with only 1 miss. Keep in mind you can also have words of the same length - and then fish for which of the words of a given length is the word.

Thanks Greg. I needed to know that you could get past a 1x6 depth.
