Golomb’s Gambits: Answers
November 28, 2011 |  by Solomon Golomb

1. asp-ire, car-ton, for-age, imp-air, men-ace, par-son, red-act, rot-ate, ten-ant, war-den.

2. cast-rate, cove-ring, disc-over, host-ages, mass-acre, mist-rust, must-ache, past-oral, port-able, read-just.

Note: Combinations such as imp-act and men-age, or over-cast and mass-ages, are perfectly good words, but I don’t think they let you complete the sets of 10 combined words.
