Guess the word!!!

here's a new thread with an old game...The game is old but interesting.

The word will be jumbled and u have to guess the word.To make it interesting lets introduce points,one point for each guess and CEan with 50 points win the game.

after making a guess increase ur point by 1...and be honest,if anyone caught cheating then he/she will be out of the game.

So here's the first word:

neiegren
Kaustubh Katdare

Peripatetic & precipitate are correct.

Pals,
The ultimate motive of this thread is to build vocab..not to win the game. So better if we can remove this point system if all of us agree on that . Steppz.....and Neha if you both are agree...we can go in new way ....
Just put a jumble word.....and get answer...
The person who will give the answer can put the other word...
Am agree with Steppz....it should be like if you give answer of the easy question next question should be hard and if you cannot answer a easy one, next question should be little more easy..??
Pour comments ...... BTW no offense means .....bodies
