You have 15 turns to build words on the grid. Start by taking the first seven letters in the DRAW COLUMN. Form an English word using six of those letters, and place it reading from top to bottom in the cells marked 1. On each successive turn, cross out the letters you used and transfer the unused letters (if any) to the next line in the DRAW COLUMN, and then play a new word using some of those letters, placing them in the next successively numbered spaces. Adjoining letters must always form words in crossword fashion, and all the letters will be used.

All words in my solution are valid according to http://scrabble.merriam.com. However, aside from some 2-letter words, all of them should be very familiar.

Arrange the letters in the shaded cells to form the final answer, a 7-letter word.
