Use this triangular setting of letters to form as many words(minimum length 5) as possible, following the given rules.

You can start at any letter, follow the connected lines to pickup additional letters To form your final word.

You can do so multiple times, you can pickup single or more of the same in one stop, you can revisit the same letter as long as don’t stray from the connecting lines.

No plurals(Addition to already formed word), no past tense additions, no proper nouns, no hyphenation.

No archaic words. I let community be the judge of acceptance.

Scoring system..1 for 5, 2 for 6, 3 for 7 or more letters in the word.

Goal is to get the score of 50. Whoever gets to 50 first will get the greencheck.

Some examples of words you can make:

Proof

Common

Moose

Foolproof

Here is the diagram of connecting triangles with letters . “O” in the center.

  • $\begingroup$ I think this might be too open to invite high quality responses. It's likely to result in incredibly long lists of words that satisfy the criteria. $\endgroup$ – Gordon K Jun 19 at 9:22
  • $\begingroup$ @GordonK nope, the meticulous forming and arrangement of the letters have made it really hard... $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Jun 19 at 9:25
  • $\begingroup$ Based on my work, 40 is easy..good wordsmith can reach 50+..if community wants to cap at certain score, I can do so $\endgroup$ – Uvc Jun 19 at 9:25
  • $\begingroup$ I am editing to make it 50 to expedite it. $\endgroup$ – Uvc Jun 19 at 9:27
  • $\begingroup$ Feel free to use my words..you can reach target faster..it is ok with me $\endgroup$ – Uvc Jun 19 at 9:30

  • $\begingroup$ @Uvc; what happened to the 'no plurals' rule (canoes, frosts, proses, modes)? $\endgroup$ – JonMark Perry Jun 19 at 9:31
  • $\begingroup$ @JonMarkPerry Uvc meant no canoe+canoes $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Jun 19 at 9:32
  • $\begingroup$ You can have canoes as long as you don’t have canoe already..you cannot pad to the existing word $\endgroup$ – Uvc Jun 19 at 9:33
