My family is doing a word puzzle (not sure what they're called) and have run across one we can't figure out.

Here are a couple of examples so you can see what I'm talking about:

stand
I
= I understand

man
board = man overboard

Now here's the one we can't figure:

i i
oo
oo
oo
oo (we're not sure if it's zeros or Os either)

Help please :D

undereye circles?

I believe they are called Frame Games. I do them in the USA Weekend magazine in the Sunday paper. :)

That's a "Whatzit" or "Dingbat" puzzle.

What about "circles under the eyes" as an answer?

*Whoops...I must have had my reply open at the same time as BSE, but she got in first.

"circles under the eyes" sounds good to me. :) I think we have 'Whatzit' in our game closet. Haven't played it in years, though.
