In case you have a few minutes to kill over your lunch break today, here is a fun word game. Take a word and knock one letter off at a time until you have no letters left. However, after the removal of each letter, what remains, without re-arrangement of letters, has to be a word.
NO LETTERS LEFT — WINNER!
Your word to start with is STARTLING, see if you can do it in 100 seconds.
If you want a hint, my own solution’s (there are several) 8 letter word was a bird.
If you can come up with other words that work well with this game please post them here.
