Number puzzles (sudoku, kakuro, calcudoku and others) and logic puzzles (picross, for example) is what I’ve focusing on since 2005. I’ve never created any puzzles with words.
Well, that’s about to change! I’m ready to present you with my first ever Word Search puzzle (aka Word Find, Word Sleuth, Word Seek or Mystery Word)! This is my newest addition. I have, as you know, created number search puzzles before and published a book of number searches.
I’m sure any puzzle lover has encountered Word Sleuth puzzles before, but just to make things clear: you are provided with a grid of seemingly random letters, with a word list below the grid. Your objective is to find those words in the grid! The words can be laid out in any of the four directions: horizontal, vertical, left diagonal, right diagonal, but they can also be spelled backwards, so there are, effectively, 8 ways a word can be hidden in the grid! Each word appears only once in the grid.
And to make things more interesting… when you complete the grid and find all words, some of the letters will not belong to any of the words you found! Those remaining letters form another word, which represents the solution of the puzzle!
This first word search puzzle I’m posting has the name of all kinds of Dog breeds hidden inside; also, the solution of the puzzle reveals another dog breed!
