Question

There's a simple but sometimes challenging word game that a group can play.

Player #1 gives a word - let's say it's read. Player #2 then thinks of a related

word, say page, but he keeps it to himself. Player #2 then thinks of a third

word, that's related to the 2nd, but not necessarily to the 1st. In fact, it's best

if it's not related to the 1st. In this case it could be say boy, and he says

it aloud. The object is for the other players to guess the 2nd word.

Here are some examples, then I'll give you some to guess:

clock - tick - bug.

horse - tail - Snow White and the seven dwarfs. [tail sounds like tale]

beard - hair - rabbit [again hair sounds like hare]

You can see how sound-alikes can add complexity, to the task.

Since this is a think-ing person's game, I'm choosing to use think

five times with five different third words.

You need to guess the five [different] words in between.

Have fun. ;)

[1] think _ _ _ _ _ _ excuse

[2] think _ _ _ _ _ _ marvel

[3] think _ _ _ _ grope

[4] think _ _ _ _ _ _ _ doubt

[5] think _ _ _ _ _ _ _ accept

There's a built-in hint - the number of dashes is the number of letters.

If you like this puzzle type, feel free to make up your own, around

a different theme.

A lot of good, creative thinking.

But only #2 has been found so far.

To some extent, more than one word relates to both the others, but I tried to choose ones that fit well.

I'll check back in the morning [new york time].

Gee, I thought [3] would be the first one to be found.

[1] think _ _ _ _ _ _ excuse

[2] think _ _ _ _ _ _ marvel

[3] think _ _ _ _ grope

[4] think _ _ _ _ _ _ _ doubt

[5] think _ _ _ _ _ _ _ accept

OK, here goes...

1)pardon, or escape (2 different meanings for excuse)

2)wonder (confirmed)

3)prod, maybe form

4)suspect

5)discern, maybe suggest
