NYCOOL is easy though. Doesn't require anything special. COLONY

I just used it because it's an example of something that sometimes happens when I'm using the circle method. As my eyes roam over the letters in the circle, I start to put them together to make words, but I often hit upon a word that is just a little off. (Here, if you ignore the T in TYCOON, and use an L instead, COLONY appears. And that's what happened to me the first time I put the TYCOON letters in a circle)

This doesn't happen with the tile method though, since all and only the required letters are written on the individual tiles. I just physically move them around until they make a word.
