Christmas Puzzles: From Coiledspring

Article excerpt

KATAMINO QUOTES

Coiledspring's bestselling games KATAMINO and WINOMINO use pentominoes, like the ones in this puzzle. Here you have a bit of help--a quotation from the celebrated wit Sydney Smith which some might see as an apt comment on our heroic leader. See for yourself--and you may win a copy of Winomino.

SPEECHLESS

As ever, the Prime Minister has been making a lot of big speeches lately. What is the longest word you can make from the letters

GORDON BROWN?

Quite a task, but that nice Mr Mandelson will make things easier. You'll get much longer words from the nine letters

MANDELSON

In each case, you can use any letter as often as you wish.

What is the longest word you can make using both BROWN and MANDELSON?

GOLDEN OPPORTUNITIES

These anagrams share a sporting theme. Solve them all for a chance to win the brilliant Coiledspring game Marrakech!
