A Pentonimo text is one constructed only from letters formed from the shapes of the Pentonimoes.

Some of the acceptable letters are:

In addition, the letter M is fine for The Estate Game (as it is the inversion of W)  and d and b and q (the rotation and mirroring of P.) Also, C as a rotation of U. Feel free to make arguments for other letters to be included!

Pentonimoes are not a classical OuLiPo constraint.
