Went through approximately six trillion words ending in "king" while trying to figure out this puzzle. Couldn't find one that would fit. Not willing to let the effort go to waste, here are 8 of them, presented by chess kings.
This time around, the clues are sometimes phonetic, sometimes literal, and there's even one direct hint. If a clue happens to fit more than one word, any one of them will do.
To reiterate, we are looking for 8 more or less random English words, each one ending in "king".
