Tips for Solving Word Games

Part of the Brain Game For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Whether you're a game novice or a puzzle pro, you like to challenge your brain with word games such as crosswords, word scrambles, and cryptograms. Keep the following tips in mind to help you solve them:

  • Use a straight edge to guide your eyes if necessary, and check each row or column for the first letter of the word you're looking for.

  • If you get stuck on a word scramble, write the letters in as many different orders as possible until something looks familiar.

  • Look at one-, two-, and three-letter words first, and always use a pencil — you're likely going to make some guesses before arriving at the solution.
