I could not contain my enthusiasm for this new style of puzzle! Let's see if I've got what it takes.

Here is a seven-letter word: #######

  • co#####: describes this puzzle because it's made up of many pieces.
  • ##nta##: doesn't describe this puzzle, but maybe years from now it will.
  • #####in: might describe this puzzle, because all puzzles are a bit evil.

What is #######?


Rules:

This is another puzzle in the genre of @ention everyone's puzzle from yesterday. The rules are the same, and I've quoted them below.

Instead of giving you a hint for each of the prefix, infix and suffix of the word to figure out the word, I will give you an imposter prefix, infix and suffix.

Each imposter will be masked onto the hidden word one by one, and I will give you a hint for each of what the resulting words are.

For example, if my word is cat, the riddle might go something like:

  • r##: I like cheese. ("cat" with an imposter prefix of "r" results in "rat".)
  • #u#: I split things. ("cat" with an imposter infix of "u" results in "cut".)
  • ##r: I need gas. ("cat" with an imposter suffix of "r" results in "car".)
