ARTEMISIA DRACUNCULUS

Now, there are many, many options of three words. I'd reccomend you try to go from there, but if you really can't (or really can't be bothered), you can use AROMATIC HERB.

Can someone please explain how this game works? It seems like you just post a random word, but I know this isn't the case.

@Kromix

I don't think you're following the rules...do tell me the anagram you're using.

@123

Read the previous posts next time. The word must have an alternate anagram, and should be similar in meaning to or be a synonym for the previous word's anagram.

For example:

The word before mine, "CASTLE" can also be rearranged as "CLEATS."
So, I chose "SHOES," because cleats are a type of shoe. "SHOES" can also be rearranged as "HOSES."

This is a fun game but it would be better to stick with closer synonyms I think. A lot of the ones seem questionable and hard to follow (especially when changing tenses or singular/plural etc.)
