Eight-words: (+1)

My first is a move in (American) football that will never score you points
My second is like the shaft within a flagellum
My third is really two words and surrounds the feline's path
My fourth is you sitting, ready to travel afar
My fifth you just got home from travelling by different means
My sixth is food served with the nut of a tree
My seventh is a boat with a sail at two score five degrees
My eighth are the children on a snowy weekend

In the neo-tradition of Four-words, Five-words, Six-words, and Seven-words.

I suspect leoll2 may have figured me out...

  • $\begingroup$ There are word squares of the order 1 and 2 (although they're trivial) and up to 9. There are examples of 10 word squares but they're not "perfect". $\endgroup$ May 22, 2015 at 16:08
