Puzzle 361, week of Apr 6, 2020
Start with a six letter drink. You can remove a final or initial letter forming a new word. Do this one letter at a time until you have only one letter left. Each step is an English word. And if you allow one proper noun, then there are two completely different paths from the initial drink to the final word although the final word is shared.
Submit your answers here with the subject line “puzzle answer” for a chance to be this week’s winner. (No prize – just a shout out on the radio.)
The Point Puzzle is produced at KPOV, High Desert Community Radio, in Bend Oregon. It is heard on radio stations around the US, distributed through Audioport and PRX.
