Words are formed by rearranging and turning the cubes so that the top letters spell a common 4-letter word. The 13 words below have been made using this set of cubes.

Can you recover the 6 letters on each?

Given the word MOCK, we arbitrarily assign M to cube 1, O to cube 2, C to cube 3, and K to cube 4. ```M O C K ``` From the word CONE, E cannot be on cube 2 or 3; and from the word MARE, E cannot be on cube 1 with M. E is on a face of cube 4. ```M O C K E ``` Then from CONE, N is on cube 1 with M. ```M N O C K E ``` T isn't on cube 4 with E (STEW), nor on cube 1 or 2 (TONY); T is on cube 3. ```M N O C T K E ``` Then Y is on cube 4, from TONY. ```M N O C T K E Y ``` From MARE, A and R are on cubes 2 and 3 or vice versa. Then W must be on cube 1 or cube 4 (WARD). W isn't on 4 (STEW) and must be on 1. ```M N W O C T K E Y ``` S is on 2 (STEW) and D on 4 (MARE, WARD). ```M N W S O C T K E Y D ``` From VICE, V and I must be on cubes 1 and 2 or vice versa. However, from DISH, I cannot be on cube 2 with S. So, I in VICE is on cube 1 and V on 2; and H in DISH is on cube 3. ```M N W I S O V C T H K E Y D ``` From CLOG, L and G are on cubes 1 and 4 or vice versa. From CLIP, L can't be on cube 1 with I; L is on 4 and G in CLOG on 1. ```M N W I G S O V C T H K E Y D L ``` P is on cube 2 (CLIP). ```M N W I G S O V P C T H K E Y D L ``` By QUIP, U isn't on cube 1 with I or cube 2 with P. From FURL, also, U isn't on cube 4 and must be on cube 3. ```M N W I G S O V P C T H U K E Y D L ``` F and R from FURL must be on cubes 1 and 2 in some order; A and R from MARE and WARD must be on cubes 2 and 3 in some order. Therefore, Then F is the sixth letter on cube 1, R is on cube 2, and A is on cube 3. ```M N W I G F S O V P R C T H U A K E Y D L ``` Q must be the sixth letter on cube 4 (QUIP). ```M N W I G F S O V P R C T H U A K E Y D L Q ``` From FAZE, Z is the sixth letter on cube 2. ```M N W I G F S O V P R Z C T H U A K E Y D L Q ``` By elimination, B is on cube 3. The final cubes look like: ```M N W I G F S O V P R Z C T H U A B K E Y D L Q ``` And, rearranging them into alphabetical order: ```A B C H T U D E K L Q Y F G I M N W O P R S V Z ``` Subject Author Date solution Wayne 2003-09-22 20:09:59 No Subject Khanh 2003-08-26 18:19:29 solution lesa 2003-08-16 22:50:12 this works for me ben young 2003-07-01 06:53:00 my answer DuCk 2003-06-30 07:11:27 re: Solution Charlie 2003-06-29 03:58:43 Solution Gamer 2003-06-28 05:01:27 Please log in:
