Word Puzzles

For your enjoyment, we present two different types of word puzzle and a challenge, see below. The two puzzles are anagrams with a difference. In both you get two sets of seven letter words - seven letters were chosen because you get seven tiles on a rack in Scrabble.

In the first group, you need to make a seven-letter word with the first set and a seven-letter word with the second set. What is more, you need to place the letters so that all the two letter words you make by placing the first word above the second word are valid. In most cases, you can deduce that if the first letter of the first word is a vowel then the first letter of the second word is a consonant and so on.
