Wow, twice as mad...uh oh... :unsure:

1. gin

2. nigh (yes, this archaic word I actually know...and even use sometimes...but then again I am writing a fantasy novel...)

3. neigh

4. hinged

5. hanged (by the neck until dead)

6. danger (okay, admittedly I googled that one...)

7. angered/enraged

12. garden

13. snared

14. nerds

15. dens

16. end (c'est finis)

Edit: Lol...WoS posted right before me...and about 7/8 they contain the exact same letters so I thought it has to be a different word...

Yeah, good going WoS and Y-San.

I corrected the word count and the pure anagram step in OP

And was going to add a clue [watch verb tense] for 9.

But plainglazed tied a bow on it. :)

I wonder if giving the letter count takes away some of the fun?

Oh, and Y-San, 6 was def made to be Googled.
