Time for a puzzle!

 

 

 

There is nothing more infuriating in Scrabble than finding a bonus word on your rack, and realising it won’t play. This is where remembering anagrams is useful.

 

 

 

Below are 10 racks of letters, each can be anagrammed into 2 different words. Some are everyday words, others a bit more obscure.

All have as their base, at least 6 relatively common letters so you are quite likely to find them on your rack.. just waiting to be anagrammed to a 7 letter word!

 

 

 

Here are the 10 racks, each with 2 anagrams. How many of the 20 anagrams can you find ? 

 

Try to find between 10-13, well done if you found 14-17, and excellent if you found more than 17!
