How to Play
There are certain words that are almost never seen without a certain other word nearby, like an extremely shy person who is afraid to go out in public without their best buddy along to give moral support. For example, you never see a CABOODLE out on its own; it only appears if there's a KIT there to accompany it. In this quiz, each clue contains one of these "shy" words, and the answer is the other word that it wants as an escort.
