List 13 words such that the first contains an anagram of the word ONE, the second contains an anagram of the word TWO, etc. The anagrammed words cannot be directly in the containing word, so that while "ounce", "sonnet" and "enough" are good for "one"; "gone" and "toner" are not.
Each letter of the alphabet is to be used once as either a first or last letter in one of the thirteen words
Try to use common short words. There's at least one solution with a total of 93 letters.
(In reply to re(2): First steps - 13
Yes, the only difference between this and that old Games competition is that that one rewarded longer words rather than shorter ones, and it was not specified in advance that all letters of the alphabet could be covered with no repetitions--merely that the more letters covered with fewer repetions would count higher.
