A word ladder… with a twist!

Posted on Jun 24, 2014

So I'm thinking that wherever possible I should come up with as many different types of Time Killers as I can as we surge through summer towards the still yet unknown date of Heartland’s season 8 premiere. The phrase coined is the Wait for Eight and if these Tuesday Time Killers can take your mind off of - even for a little while - the fact that we still have over three months to wait until we find out what went on in Europe (!) then my mission will have been accomplished.

Last week’s edition was a very popular and admittedly a very silly one, with word and thought balloons needed to be filled in. Some of you are very funny/clever and if you have not read the comments, do so when you need cheering up, by clicking on the link here.

This week? I've crafted a Heartland themed word ladder with a major twist, which I call the Last 2 = First 2 quiz.

Know that the last two letters of the answer to any rung of this ladder will be the first two letters of the next rung. So if the clue was “Has 88 black and white keys” the answer would be PIANO, and you would then know that the answer to the following rung starts with the letters “NO.” All rungs of the ladder are designed the same way.

So then, have fun! The answers can be words, names or places, and in some cases more than one word, as in a phrase or a person’s full name. Have at ‘er, Heartlanders. Answers will be posted next week.
