And ND comes up with the solution. Now, please solve the nine letter.
 
 
 
The ampersand nbsp works without the pound.

ə i use the non-breaking space formed by ampersand nbsp pound with no spaces between to get the lines right.

Sometimes (for me) it is harder when there are a pile of letters found with no directions. I still have trouble with the FOUR, FORTY, etc. I cannot understand how they got done the way they were.

To answer Sody's question, I grew up in Brooklyn, NY. I don't remember the rules of the game. What I do remember is that if you lost a round, an opponent would take an entire deck of cards and scrape them across your KNUCKLES. I think the first time you lost you got one scrape. Second time, two scrapes. Etc. Caused lots of bloody KNUCKLES!
