My prefix is a game where there is only one winning move
My infix comes after a certain family, excluding the unlucky
My suffix is mostly for animals, and sometimes dragons
What am I?


1 Answer 1


The answer is:

warden, a person that guards something

Line 1:

war, where the only winning move is not to play. A terrifyingly relevant quote from the movie Wargames

Line 2:

rd, those two letters come after every number ending with 3, with the exception of all numbers that finish with 13, which are the so-called "unlucky"

Line 3:

den, either as an animal's home or TV's Dragon's Den

    $\begingroup$ @Auribouros Thanks for the puzzle! Is the infix just the rd or is it longer? $\endgroup$
