Re: Test Your Wits! The Riddle Thread V.13

My start is a word that belongs to us all;
The next is a sign of sleep;
Lastly, is the place where the wind does not blow;
The whole is a friend to keep.


Enjoy

Re: Test Your Wits! The Riddle Thread V.13

My start is a word that belongs to us all; Our, which sounds like the letter R.
The next is a sign of sleep; Wheeze?
Lastly, is the place where the wind does not blow; Lea?
The whole is a friend to keep. R. Weasley, which is Ron?

Wow, so fast! OK, you have and you haven't got it right. Lee is correct. The final answer is a single word. See if you can answer the rest of the clues now

Sorry, that was my error. I didn't look closely enough at your riddle.

Using the First letter of each we get HARRY POTTER .

Anagram Square Fun .

1. LYOMWNA
2. NODABNA
3. LAITCER
4. GANEDAB
5. CITSEAL
6. GINLICE
7. NITREKA

Spoiler: show
How to solve, first unscramble the letters to find a 7 letter word on each line. Then look from the top down for two HP character names .


Have Fun

twins
