The title and the layout of the puzzle both hint at the game "Seven Little Words", in which one needs to reconstruct a pool of letter tiles to form, well, seven little words according to given clues. This puzzle employs the same mechanic — but there are no clues! However, since we want to form seven words, our best guess is that we want to form sets of seven with the letters. Playing around with the tiles shows that this is indeed the case, and we get:
The next step is to put together the unused pieces to form words which are also part of seven-word sets:
Note that we have only formed six words. A quick search will reveal that each of these words appears in the xkcd comic "Seven", suggesting that the answer is the seventh, missing COLOSSUS OF RHODES.
It's possible to solve this puzzle with only about 3 or 4 sets completed. This was simply because the gap between solving most sets and solving all the sets was too large, so the puzzle was simplified accordingly.
|The answer is: colossusofrhodes|
