My tangle pattern "Nogybess"

Okay, if you've followed my blog for any length of time, you know I have a thing for words.  Or as it turns out, even non-words.  There is just something about the sight and sound of certain words, that I find incredibly appealing.  Sometimes even those confirmation words.  The ones you have to type in  to leave a comment on blogger.   

The other day, I had to type out this confirmation word--Nogybess.  It was instant love, and I just couldn't wait to create a tangle so I could use it.  Since it is my non-word, I get to create the pronunciation (the sound is very important), and it's NO as in know, GHEE as in geese, and Bess as in the name Bess.  Just think.  A few moments ago, Nogybess meant nothing.  Now it's a tangle.

And about this tangle.  It's advanced.  I've actually had it for a while, trying to think of a way to make it easier, but nothing has come.  It's those slanted lines.  Some people may prefer to switch steps 3 and 4.   Try to keep the slanted lines as close to the middle of the box corners as you can.  You can also try doing one line of boxes-drawing the slanted line, and then doing the next line of boxes.  If you come up with something easier, please feel free to draw them up and post them!


The secret weapon is toward the lower middle. The armored door has slid up and to the side to reveal a... super-tack spitter. Each chamber will spit out a tack that's as big as a house! Each tack is capable of being spit in a several 100 mile arc. That's why it'll be called a... spit attack. Get it? Huh? Huh? Lol! I need to go eat breakfast.

  4. Cool pattern. I found it easier to start with step 3. Draw the slanted lines first. It's then fairly easy to draw the squares evenly aligned.
