Note: There is a more difficult version of this game available at viewtopic.php?f=28&t=1255

The idea of the game is to solve the anagram with the help of a clue thus helping to learn some basic vocabulary in Irish. When you know the answer, simply write it and then either a) set up a new clue and anagram for someone else to solve or b) if you would prefer not to set up a new one, someone else will be happy to help out by setting up a new one.

Anyone is free to play the game. The standard will be set so that it will suit people starting out on their journey with the Irish language or perhaps those returning to it after a period of time.

An example is: this is something you wear on your head: aaht.

Answer/freagra: hata.


To start the game, here is our first clue and anagram. Go n'éirí le gach duine - good luck to everyone!

You sit at this to eat your dinner: dorb

Hi, Saoirse. I think the game may have gotten a little hard to find in the intro/explanation.

Here it is again:


Letters: dorb

Hint: You sit at this to eat your dinner.


Beginners are welcome to try. Rearrange the letters to make up a simple Irish word.

If you can already make sentences in Irish, try our advanced game: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=1255.

Well done guessing that. For a new word, just grab an easy one from a texbook - this is only the beginners' game. ;)
