Each item on this list is a multi-word anagram. I like to call them Multi-Grams. Each line is a separate item in the list. For each item, rearrange the letters to form new words. The number of words in each item is unchanged. The items are all related to each other in some way. How many of them can you identify?

STADIUM BOTCH
SIR DORSAL HE FAKE TROT
HATH LET PENNAME
WHY ASHTRAY ERN MELL
AM OINKED FLIGHT
HIGH TOAD FEN VIGIL TEND
FLEE SABBATH TRUCK
NINTH BUTT MONEY YOU

Happy Multi-Gramming!

  • I'm not sure I get it.... Also what is an "item"? A word? A line? – stack reader Jan 13 '17 at 6:24
  • An item is a line. Each line is a self-contained multi-word anagram. – wildBillMunson Jan 13 '17 at 6:24
  • This is another new puzzle type idea I'm trying. I'm sure it will need some fine tuning... :) – wildBillMunson Jan 13 '17 at 6:30
  • Within 1 line, we must make new words using all the letters? Or we make new line of words? Or we just use some letters? – stack reader Jan 13 '17 at 6:32
  • For each line, you take all the letters and rearrange them to form new words. The number of words is retained. I appreciate the questions! :D – wildBillMunson Jan 13 '17 at 6:34

    @wildBillMunson having the same number of words as the answer was a lifesaver though. Would have been quite hard otherwise. Must have taken you a lot of time to make it work so perfectly. – stack reader Jan 13 '17 at 6:47

    Yes haha it took me a couple hours to put together. Honestly since this was new I didn't know how solvable it was. Of course, you can solve pretty much anything :) – wildBillMunson Jan 13 '17 at 6:48

    @wildBillMunson anagrams tend to get solved pretty fast on this website, which is why they are usually used as a stepping stone for a bigger puzzle while keeping the anagram tag hidden or undercover inside the wordplay tag XD – stack reader Jan 13 '17 at 6:53

    As you may know, I've been working on new puzzle types like Add-A-Grams and now Multi-Grams. Eventually I'd like to concatenate these types into a more complex puzzle. :D – wildBillMunson Jan 13 '17 at 6:55
