This is a different format of the famous CODENAMES game. In this game a ONE WORD clue is given which can connect that clue to multiple words. Like a clue "Hand" can connect to words like cards, deliver, body etc.

The following design starts with multiple three word boxes. Those three words are connected to a single word. So three 3 word boxes will give 3 single words which then must be connected to the next single word.

An example is below

enter image description here

In the first column there are 3 three word boxes. First box (Fire,Date and Game) is then connected to Match. (Matches create Fire, Match.com for dating and Match Game show). Similarly Car,Change and Flat can be connected to TIRE and Mist (Maid of the ---), Serve and Wedding (Maid of honor). Thus now we have the second column of Three words: Match, Tire and Maid which results in the final word RUBBER ( Rubber Match, Rubber Tire and Rubbermaid)

Since it is possible to have multiple word connections I have tried to make this puzzle simple and specific by having not only Blank words but also blank letters within the words. Also provided the word "Indian" connecting to the three words in the last box.

The final word starts and ends in E. Please fill all the blanks.

Hope you like this simple format. Made this first puzzle kind of simple :)

Hint

I am a bit conflicted on how to give a hint. Several options. But for better or worse here is what I picked

The last word is Eclipse

Now can you work backwords?

I feel like parts of this are almost certainly not what was expected (and it also feels like a very strange psychological test!) but perhaps this may encourage some other (better!) answers:

Layer 1:

MERCURY, SOAP, DIET => LIQUID
DRESS, MONKEY, ADDRESS => BUSINESS
GAS, DANCE, ROOM => BALL

SHOE, AWAY, SPACE => BOOT
CLIMB, ACID, CLASSIC => MELT
TAKE, YELLOW, PAN => PIPE

ILL, DEVIL, UP => NOTE
ROAD, DOCUMENT, WARN => SIGN
SPICE, MOVIES, (surely lots of words?) NAAN => INDIAN

Layer 2:

LIQUID, BUSINESS, BALL => JET
BOOT, MELT, PIPE => RUN
NOTE, SIGN, INDIAN => LANGUAGE

Layer 3:

JET, RUN, LANUGAGE => ENGINE

Partial answer:

So far I have OCEAN as in Indian OCEAN for the first column.

For the 2nd column: On top I have LIQUID for mercury, soap and diet, BUSINESS for dress, monkey and address and CHAMBER for gas, dance and room. In the middle TRAVEL for space, shoe and away, ROCK for classic, acid and climb (acid rock and classical rock are music genres, a rockclimb is done for rock climbing) and GOLD for take, pan and yellow (takes the gold refers to someone winning the gold medal). On thd bottom I have WIND (because of dust devil, ill wind and upwind) and SIGN for road, document and warn.

  • $\begingroup$ If you have played codenames you know there can be several choices for the same word combination. I was expecting a quick solution here but looks like this is more challenging than I thought. For example for Fire,Date and Game a halfway decent clue could be Show also. I will post more hints tomorrow. $\endgroup$ – DrD Oct 28 '20 at 18:55
