schoolboy is the word containing all the letters.

I got 18 of these, including schoolboy, Susan. I might have got bosh and bolshy had I thought that they were proper words not slang. I thought that the fish was spelt "coley" but I took a risk and put "coly", which turns out to be an allowed word, but I don’t know if it is the fish or something else. (Must check dictionary!)

  1. I didn’t do so well today, Maxine – consider myself lucky to have found 14! I found those three o’s quite intimidating. I got ‘schoolboy’, but missed coho and cosy. The other misses were largely words that are not commonly used around here. I’ll have to look up boho, cholo, cosh, and sool.
