This is an entry in the Fortnightly Topic Challenge #41: Short and Sweet.

Separate the words into four categories of four words each. Then take a chance at my favorite board game.

\begin{array}{|c|c|c|c|No, it's not one of the CategoRies. That wouLd be too easy.} \hline \mathrm{Age}&\mathrm{Fast}&\mathrm{Country}&\mathrm{Through}\\ \hline \mathrm{Iron}&\mathrm{Fresh}&\mathrm{Reason}&\mathrm{Hat}\\ \hline \mathrm{Dance}&\mathrm{Ship}&\mathrm{Hole}&\mathrm{Pride}\\ \hline \mathrm{Wheelbarrow}&\mathrm{Nickel}&\mathrm{Mailbox}&\mathrm{Touch}\\ \hline \end{array}

  • $\begingroup$ this is still unsolved... maybe a hint is needed? thanks! $\endgroup$ Jun 12, 2019 at 8:13
