The Weekly Warlock Wind-Up: Number Nine (answer)

So, this week’s puzzle was as follows:

night long boat house ?

Which word should replace the question mark?

calm, hold, panic, wind, post

The answer is after the break!

The solution was, of course, “hold” – you just needed to look at how all the words in the sequence relate to each other, and in this case you can join one with the word before or after it to make a longer (compound) word:

  • nightlong
  • longboat
  • boathouse

And then, to continue the sequence with a word that makes sense,

  • household

I’ve been told it was too easy this week, so next week prepare for something decidedly more fiendish and evil! Tremble, mortals…
