Two's Company

Also known as:

Bullseye, Couplets

The novel design of the grid – a wheel formed of a hub with twelve spokes – is perhaps the most interesting aspect of this puzzle, but in spite of the fact that the middle letters of the words are given, it can prove suprisingly difficult to fit the couplets together to form the required six words, especially since some of the given couplets often form part of more than one word.

An alternative version of this puzzle called Bullseye, often seen in children's puzzle books, is based on the same idea, but the letters on the spokes are given; the object is to identify the pair of letters that fit in the hub.


Place each of the twelve letter pairs into one of the circles of the grid, to form six six-letter words, each containing the middle letters shown in the central shaded circle.
