NPR Series: Sunday Puzzle Podcast
Summary: NPR's weekly word game: match wits with "Weekend Edition" puzzle master Will Shortz.
This week we're playing a game based on the word "blast." Given a category, name something in the category starting with each letter: B-L-A-S-T.
Every answer today is a rhyming two-word phrase in which each word has two syllables and the first word ends with a doubled consonant plus the letter Y.
Every answer is the name of a popular prime-time TV series from this century, on either broadcast or cable. Identify the shows from their anagrams.
The word cho means "beautiful" in Korean and "butterfly" in Japanese. Every answer is a familiar two-word phrase or name based around "cho."
This week, we've got clues for two words. Add a long A sound at the end of the first word to phonetically get the second one.
Every answer today is a word or name with an accented syllable "pee" — spelled in any way — but always occurring inside the word, never at the start or end.
Every answer this week is a made-up two-word phrase, in which both words start with 'S' and they're anagrams of each other.
Every answer is made up of a two-word phrase, in which the second word has three syllables, and the first word sounds like the last two of these syllables.
For each four-letter word given, insert two letters exactly in the middle to complete a common, uncaplitalized six-letter word.
Every answer is the name of a river. Identify it using its anagram — minus a letter.
Every answer is a familiar two-word phrase or name in which the first word ends in E and the second word starts with Z.
Every answer to the given clue is a made-up, two-word phrase in which you add IN to the front of the first word to get the second word.
The theme of today's puzzle is May. Every answer is a familiar two-word phrase or name in which the first word starts with MA and the second word ends with Y.
This week's on-air challenge clues are the winners and runners up from the two-week creative challenge. Spoiler alert: The answers for the on-air challenge are given away on this week's puzzle page.
Today's puzzle is a game of categories based on the word "phlox." You'll be given some categories. For each one, name something in the category beginning with each of the letters P, H, L, O and X.
