Bronte Sisters Unscramble Game

This game was a suggestion from Livia of Rose Petals and Fairy Dust. Thank you, this was a wonderful idea!

The Bronte family was very talented in writing, painting and many other creative pursuits. It was their brother Bramwell who painted this portrait of the three literary sisters Anne, Emily and Charlotte Bronte.

To Play: Each of the 15 puzzles below contain names of characters and novels written by the Bronte sisters. Try to unscramble the words and put your answers in a comment. I'll respond with your score. Guess as many times as you wish!

Points: One point for each correctly unscrambled word / name for a total of 32 points. For 5 extra points name which sister wrote each of the five novels listed!

Female Characters
1. BRAMHGE INLANC (2 names)
2. HNAHA GELERM (2 names)
3. AREYS GGNE (2 names)
4. LOWU SCYNE (2 names)
5. CARNSAINE EERHTHAW (2 names)

Male Characters
6. EOCRSD RDWERAHET (2 names)
7. HFHCEATLIF
8. ENTOR LANIDG (2 names)
9. SV RSJN ROHTIE (3 words)
10. RASORDA MICHN (2 names)

Novels
11. NYRE EJAE (2 words)
12. WNTSHEIEG HUTGHRI (2 words)
13. VEETILTL (1 words)
14. SEYRLHI (1 words)
15. LTI TELDEN AO WFANTHEL HLLF (5 words)

The answers will be posted next week!

What fun! I'm not as familiar with the Bronte sisters as I'd like to be, but I'll give this a whirl.

1: Blanche Ingram
2: Helen Graham (is she the girl in Jane Eyre who befriended Jane at Lowood? The name is familiar but I can't quite place it.)
3: Agnes Grey
5: Catherine Earnshaw

6: Edward Rochester
7: Heathcliff (is that his last name or his first name??? a question for the ages!)
8: Edgar Linton
9: St. John Rivers

11. Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte)
12. Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte)
13. Villette (Anne Bronte)
15. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (Anne Bronte)

This was a tougher one but I enjoyed it!

I am almost positive I have them all-I don't recognize 4, but I don't know what else it could be. I was using a pen and paper to figure most of these out. I recognized all but 4 although that does ring a bell. I shouldn't have to use paper-oh well. I have read the first two mentioned novels as well as Agnes Grey, I have skipped though a few others, and I own them all. Thanks for doing this one I LOVED it!

Ella said...

#5 is Catherine Hernshaw.

#7 is Heathcliff.

#11 is Jane Eyre. By Charlotte Bronte.

#12 is Wuthering Heights.

#13 is Villette. By Charlotte Bronte.

#14 is Shirley. I think it's by Charlotte Bronte...?

Thanks for hosting!

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Livia,
Excellent work on your guesses! You correctly unscrambled all fifteen puzzles for a total of 32 points! For extra points can you tell me who wrote each novel? I figure you could since you said you've read the books.
#4 is a character from #13 which I've only read a bit of. So glad you enjoyed the game! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Ella,
Good work! All of your guesses were correct so you have a total of 7 points. Thanks for playing!

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Charity,
Great job! All of your guesses were correct! You have a total of 14 points! :)

Melody said...

Okay, here I go. =) (I love these things!)

1. Blanche Ingram
2. The first name could be Hannah if it had another 'N' somewhere. Hmm...not sure I recognize this one.
3. Agnes Grey
5. Catherine Earnshaw

6. Edward Rochester
7. Heathcliff
9. St. John Rivers
10. Richard Mason

11. Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte)
12. Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte--I earned a dollar once for knowing that)
13. Villette (yikes! Not sure; I'll guess ... Emily?)
14. Shirley (Not sure on this one either! Charlotte?)
15. Not sure how to spell the 4th word...The Tenant of Willfeld Hall, or something? (I'm trying to use all the 'L's, haha)

Now, for the next part. I am going to guess names I unscrambled for 4 and 8, even though I've never heard them before. If they aren't it, you might be amused that I found them and they fit perfectly with the letters you have! ;-) It amused me a great deal.
4. Lucy Snowe
8. Edgar Linton

Melody said...

Oh, and I was wondering about the extra 5 points thingy. I assume that you must mean an extra 5 points per correctly guessed author, and not 5 points if you guess them all correctly. I was unsure from what you said (which is why I hazarded a guess on all 5), but since Miss Dashwood has 41 points and the total of the rest is 32, I figure that would be impossible unless it was 5 points each! ;-)

Sarah said...

I hope these are right!
1. Blanche Ingram

These were all I could think of!

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Christine & Elsa,
Excellent work! You correctly unscrambled all fifteen puzzles! Your total is 32 points!

Miss Elizabeth Bennet,
All of your answers are correct, good work! Your score is 32 points. Feel free to guess again on #4 and #10 if you can unscramble them. :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Melody,
A job well done on your unscrambling! Even your guesses on #4 and #8 were correct! #4 is a character in #13 and #8 is a character in #12. That's interesting that you once earned a dollar for knowing #12's author! :)
Oh, your guess on the author for #13 was incorrect.
I'm actually not sure how I came up with Miss Dashwood's score and am going to correct it. But everyone after that I've just given one point for each correctly guessed author. Anyway your score is 32 points!

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Jemimah,
Good job, all of your answers are correct! Your score is 29 points!

Oops--We missed the part about which sister wrote each book:


11) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

12) Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

13) Villette by Charlotte Bronte

14) Shirley by Charlotte Bronte

15) The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte

Is there extra points for guessing which character is in which book?

Anonymous said...

I accidently hit enter before typing the whole name for the comment on the authoresses. It is supposed to be Christine and Elsa again.

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Miss Dashwood,
I just realized that I totaled up your score incorrectly so I'm fixing it now and deleting my earlier comment.

Good work! All of your unscrambling was correct as well as all of your guesses on the authors except for #13. You total is 29 points!
On #2, no this is a character from another book.

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Christine & Elsa,
Good job on guessing the authors, each author is worth 1 point so I'm adding 5 points to your score for a total of 37 points.
Sorry, no extra points for which character comes from which book. Thanks for playing! :)

Emily Ruth said...

1. Blanche ?
2. Helen ?
3. Agnes Grey.

15. The Legend of ? Hall.

Livia said...

Now that the game refreshed my memory as to the titles(and seeing the books on my bookshelf this afternoon yes-I am embarrassed that some of that was hard). Charlotte (I keep wanting to call her Jane) wrote Jane Eyre, Shirley, Villette, and the Professor, and she wrote under the pen name of C-something (a men's name I have forgotten-Currier or something like that)Bell. Emily wrote only one novel, Wuthering Heights, and a book of poetry. She wrote under the pen name of Ellis Bell. Anne wrote Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. She also wrote with a men's name starting with the first letter of her last name and used the surname (I want to say Acton or something-I will look it up)Bell.

Livia said...

Okay, I have looked it up-Charlotte was Currer, Emily was Ellis, and Anne was Acton. I was almost right except I added an "i" to Charlotte's (I almost typed Jane the first time I mentioned Charlotte in this post-Jane Eyre and Jane Austen are too much for me I suppose).

Sarah said...

Hello, I was just wondering if you got my comment? I've entered the game a few days ago, but you didn't say anything. I think I clicked all the right buttons-but maybe I didn't!

I just had an idea! Would 4. be Lucy Snowe?

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Sarah Grace,
Good job on your guesses, they were all correct! You have 12 points so far!

Sarah,
Your answer on #4 is correct so two more points are added to your score. Your total is 32 points! :)

Jemimah D said...

Thanks for hosting the game. I have thought of doing a name scramble game, but I didn't know if anyone would participate.

God bless,

I just wanted to check & see if you received the second part of my answers.

God bless,
Sarah Grace

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Jemimah,
Good job on guessing who wrote #12 and one point is added to your score for a total of 30 points!

Sarah Grace,
Yes I did get your answers and all of them were correct. 24 points were added to your score so your total is now 36 points!

Melody said...

Hmm...I'm a little curious: Did I leave any out or did I guess on them all? Because if I got them all right as well as some of the authors (if they're 1 point each) wouldn't it be a few more than 32?

Sorry to bug you. :-/

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Melody,
No problem. On #2 you guessed Hannah but that was incorrect, so you can try to unscramble that. You guessed the author for #13 incorrectly and didn't guess an author for #15.
After re-checking your score you stay at 32 points. Four points can be added if you correctly guess the puzzles mentioned above. :)

Melody said...

Okay, would 2 be Helen Graham? (I was thinking Helen Burns at first but, haha, that didn't work. :P)

Author for 15 is Anne Bronte, I think. And for 13 I'll just guess Charlotte Bronte? (I think I didn't guess her before...ha)

Thanks for checking for me! I was a little confused! ;-)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Melody,
Good job, all of your recent guesses were correct so that means you've correctly guessed all of the puzzles and authors! Oh, and #2 is a character from #15.
Your total score is 36 points! :)
