This game is based on the Add-A-Gram puzzles by wildBillMunson. I think it's the 11th in the series, but who's really keeping count?

The goal: You need to find a chain of words, such that each next word is an anagram of the previous word plus an additional letter. You are given the meanings of the words, in order.

Example: a gas in a disjunction in a bird in a center in an influence.
The solution is O < OR < ROC < CORE < FORCE. You can format your answer however you want.

Here is the chain for you to solve:

a pole in a tenth in a forest dweller in a branch in a container in a separate leaf in igneous rocks in a sax player in a pen vendor in versions in a Middle Eastern artist in reprisals in sound repetitions in reestablishment.

Each one is a single word. That's 14 different words in total. Can you identify them?

• I found this: wiki.blender.org/index.php/User:Mindrones/Wiki/… and convinced myself that from "do" to "te" on a musical scale is a "tenth" interval. not sure if that's true, though. Jun 1, 2017 at 21:43
