The images below can be connected by a single word.

Fair ground (wordplay)

A horse trotting

The head of a Lego person

A collection of traditional games

A world map

A seriously cool hover craft

What is the word and what are the connections?

  • $\begingroup$ @A.D. I love these visual riddles. They're relatively easy to put together to be honest but I do like both making and solving them. And I'd never have seen one if not for puzzling SE. $\endgroup$ Commented May 24, 2017 at 6:19

The answer is



1. Fair → Warfare
2. Horse → War horse
3. Head → Warhead (chemical or nuclear)
4. Games → War games
5. World → World War I and II
6. Hovercraft → Warcraft

and the title is referring to

I think the word may be


Image connections are:

1. Fair → FAIR TRADE
2. Horse → HORSE TRADE
3. Interchangeable head → HEAD TRADER or HEAD OF TRADE
4. Game boards → BOARD(S) OF TRADE
5. World map → WORLD TRADE
6. Hover craft → TRADECRAFT

And the title:

TRADE ←→ Stack Exchange

This seems to fit better than my prior attempt.

I think the word is:


Here are some explanations:

1. Fair → the ferries wheel is a turning device, thus the word is OVERTURN
2. Horse → the horse is in running position, thus the word is OVERRUN,
3. Head → OVERHEAD,
4. Games → those are board games, thus the word is OVERBOARD,
5. Map → it's a view of the world, thus the word is OVERVIEW,
6. Hovercraft → it's a mean of transportation, thus the word is OVERRIDE.

Thanks to @Techidiot for new ideas.

    $\begingroup$ Turn over / Hang over for 1st and H+over for last seems good. $\endgroup$

I'm a fan of the accepted answer, but this is what first came to mind:



  1. Ferris wheel's rotate
  2. Horses can fall in a way called a "rotational fall".
  3. Lego Movie had a whole plot point about those lego heads being good for rotation.
  4. The games shown have turn rotations.
  5. Earth rotates on its axis
  6. Hovercrafts have a rotating fan.




1. Water park - Many theme parks are water parks or have a waterpark.
2. Water horse - Movie
3. Water head - source of a headstream.
4. Water board - board boardgames. Water board a form of torture.
5. Earth - Has oceans/water?
6. Hovercraft - Can be used on water.

I think it is:



wooden Funfair
Wooden horse
Wooden tabletop or board
Wooden globe
Wooden hovercraft

I think



Fair play (hah)
A LEGO man's decapitated head! → ... brains ... ok, because LEGO means PLAY
Play the game ☺
A world map → RISK is played on a world map. Or the Globe theatre hosts plays
Cool hovercraft → Play it COOL

or possibly



ground meat
horse meat
... brains ...
game ... (venison, for example) is meat
that looks like a map showing worldwide consumption of meat
it's full of eels

  • $\begingroup$ Presuming I can comment on my own answer ... should I split this into two answers? $\endgroup$ Commented May 24, 2017 at 2:06
  • $\begingroup$ Some good connections +1, and I think submitting as separate answers or one, as you've done here, is largely a matter of preference. See meta.stackexchange.com/questions/25209/… $\endgroup$ Commented May 24, 2017 at 5:44
