    For a word posted in the selected category, try to come up with another word in the same category that shares as many of the same letters as the first word. The new word has to share at least two letters with old word. No repeats.

    Ex: Category is actions --- first word is hit

    A good response would be: think-- because it contains all the letters of the previous word and fits the category of actions.

    Let's start with same category and the word --- pretend

    the obvious would be something that contains all of the letters of "pretend" but i can't think of any that fit so i'll say portends--is that legal?

    Cicero

    "a nick or dent at the tip of his nose, which resembled the opening in a vetch, gave him the surname of Cicero"

    well, we kind of got away from "actions"--mea culpa--so, to try to bring it back, i'll take "rocketing" from "cricket" though that wasn't my first answer which was also "astray" from the idea.

    since we got away from the category, I decided to change it. Actions seemed to easy, how about FOOD instead. I'll start -- PICKLE
