Default Water Chance

Evening all,

This is possibly the most trivial thing to ever to be posted on here.

Someone at work showed me a "Link Word" quiz as she couldnt get the last answer.

The link words are "Water" and "Chance". So just to clarify, you need to think of a word which can be after water, and before chance. The answer is 4 letters. All three words do not have to link.

For example if your link words are "Fight" and "Sandwich" the answer could be "Club".

My area manager at work is getting headaches and having nightmares over it (not really but she won't stop asking me if I have found an answer yet) so I thought I'd ask the forum here. There must be someone here with a mind for that sort of thing.

Thanks for trying,

Sorry for wasting your time :)

That's a noodle scratcher. The best I can come up with is 'main', although 'main chance' seems unlikely.

Should this be approached literally or cryptically?

I think that someone put a wrong word in the puzzle by mistake. It must be an error.
Plus there are only so many four letter words that you can say on DW!

That's what makes it easier, the fact that the missing word has only four letters. "Main" works because it has only four letters and it makes sense with both water and chance.

Google "water main" and "main chance." It works.

Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! It's my final answer, and I still have all my life-lines!

Will we be notified of the correct answer when it's revealed?

I think 'spot' works too, no? You can have a 'spot chance,' can't you?

Con Struct - I thought of "Main" too but "Main Chance"?

Yes it is a sentence but it doesnt work the same way "Water Main" does if you see what I mean. Likewise "Spot Chance".

"Water Tiger" and "Tiger Chance" are just as good.

The answer hopefully will be like a eureka moment.

There seem to be brand new ideas being created as a side-effect. Isn't the human imagination a marvellous thing?

Unfortunately mine can't come up with anything right now. Hmm.

Seems like more things have water before them than chance after them. Maybe the way to go about this is to think of things that fit with chance first, and then see if they fit with water.

Don't be silly. The answer is "fair".

"water fair" - a phrase search on Google yields 26,000 entries

"fair chance" - a phrase search on Google yields over 200,000 entries

"Water fair" isn't very satisfying but that happens in these things at times. Same with crosswords. You get answers where you think they have got to be kidding.

Drummers!

Haha, this is ridiculous.

I have asked all the smartest people I know and I can't get an answer.

Sporting was the best so far but its not four letters.

I might be able to find out the magazine which this was in and write to them. :)

Well we found out what magazine it was from and got the issue with the answers.

I'm sorry to say the official answer is "Main".

Doesnt seem to work for me but what can I say.

Thanks for all your guesses.
