Ebony, stow, retrench, uniform, feverish, exits, sovereign...
Which of the following words is the best fit to continue the sequence?
(In reply to Another different solution
A flaw in an otherwise brilliant plan:
The last word is sovereign. A nine letter word.
You only get seven letter tiles at a time in Scrabble, so you could only make this word if you use two tiles already on the board.
Checking the possible boards for the first 6 words there are 10 possible boards. Unfortunately, none of them allows soveriegn to be played.
I could imagine making a good puzzle of this, though. The ground rules would have to be spelled out more explicitly, though.
