Today's Brain Game is the final one for 2009; we'll pick up again with new puzzles for the new year. If you're jonesing for a Brain Game fix at the end of December, feel free to browse those from earlier in the year that you may have missed.

These are the words I found in a "standard" dictionary; if you found any others that fit the bill, feel free to list them in the comments. Thanks!
