Word Mine Puzzles

The objective in CRpuzzles' Word Mine is to anagram as many 4- and 5-letter words as possible using the letters in the puzzle master word or phrase. A letter may be used to form a new word only as many times as it appears in the master. The official Word Mine puzzle word list is composed of common words; words not eligible are those beginning with a capital letter, plurals, present-tense verbs ending in "S" ("sees," for example), contractions, and hyphenated words. CRpuzzles' Java computer tool will track the number of words on the official list as the solver anagrams them.
