Hi barbie19022002,

"Juju" appears in many dictionaries, and the *Collins Scrabble Checker* (which is the main dictionary I use for games like this and has an online version found here) says it's a noun meaning a "*West African magic charm or fetish*".

Hi Bobby,

Which part didn't you get? From AQUA to BLUE or from BLUE to JUJU?

I think the solution for both parts is fairly difficult to find, but I've got one for which all the words are in the online Collins Scrabble Checker.

Hi;

I had trouble with both. Can I see your solution?
