No need to hide your word list in a spoiler.

If the first three words get through (but the other three do not) then the rule in the spoiler should be correct...

screens

strength

broom

pious

vacuum

etching

Words must have only one primary vowel (aeiou) or only one contiguous block of the same primary vowel.

OK - another simple entry rule...

Sample word allowed entry through the green glass doors: scratchpad

Sample word NOT allowed entry through the green glass doors: frypan

I'm afraid that none of either MissKitten's or Glycereine's word collections are allowed to pass through the green glass doors :(

After some investigation, I feel it is my duty to tell you that the party behind the green glass doors is a lot more exclusive than I had first thought...

HOPSCOTCH is accepted through the doors but please leave your UNDERPANTS at home.

None of these words make it through the GGDs:

matchbox, hatchet, cheating, abacus, exactly, air, aerial

With no fluked successful entrants it is probably time for another example...

Your CLAPTRAP is welcome but not your TOADSTOOL.

a compound word in which the two parts match somewhat?

but if the following words get through, then it's the second pattern.

backpack

pompom

a compund word in which the two parts have exactly one vowel each, and the vowel is the same.
