At a recent club night there was much discussion as to whether RESTAIN is word. (Do you RESTAIN wood ?) Sadly, the word needs a hyphen so can't be allowed. However those same 7 letters can make 11 (ELEVEN) words that are valid for Scrabble.

 

They are :

ANESTRI, ANTSIER, NASTIER, RATINES, RESIANT, RETAINS, RETINAS, RETSINA, STAINER, STARNIE and STEARIN.

 

Well worth learning!

Did you know there are five 3 letter words containing the Q ?

 

They are QAT, QUA, QIN, QIS, SUQ.

What are the 5-letter words you can make from the letters E B S C plus a blank (EBSC?)

Hint: all but one are common English words.
