You'll flip for this game
Here's a puzzle for you to solve. Figure out the phrase, we'll even show you how many words and letters there are. The catch is, for every letter you want to guess you have to find a word in the jumble that begins with that letter. You'll flip in more than one way.

 

 

 

1.
Decide what letters are likely to appear in the phrase and look for words that begin with that letter, or go looking for words and see if their first letters are ones you like.

2.
Click each letter in order, to spell a word. Each letter must be adjacent to the next letter you need and letters can never be used twice. Click Submit Word when you've spelled your word.

3.
You can fill in the phrase's letters by finding the right words in the jumble, or type in the phrase when you know it. But you only have so many tries to guess what letters are in the phrase.

  Tips and Strategies

·          Begin by looking for words that begin with vowels. There have to be a few of them in every phrase and vowels can give you some early hints.

 

 

 

·          Be careful you don't make a tough word even tougher. If you need a "Z" don't make "tip" from "zip." You don't know if other letters that work with "Z" will pop up.

 

 

 

·          Use all the tries to get the phrase bonus. You get extra points for having tries leftover but no where near the 10,000 point bonus for filling in the phrase. But don't forget, you have to complete the phrase, one way or the other, to keep the game going.

 

 

 

·          The game is not timed, so slow down and carefully select which words to submit.

 

 

 

·          Keep an eye on the list of used letters in the upper left-hand corner. Don't use a first letter twice, unless it's a really big word.

 

 

 

 

·          The list of used letters can also help you with what words are not in the phrase. If you tried "D" and there's still a "_ig" in the phrase, it's not "dig."

 

 

 

 

·          After uncovering vowels, try creating words using these common letters as the first letters: R, S, T, N, L.

 

 

 

·          First, try creating one of these words to reveal vowels in the puzzles. (Avoid using rare letters like Z, J, or K.) ADD, AID, AIL, ALL, AMP, AND, ANT, APE, APT, ARC, ARC, ARE, ART, AWE, AYE, EAR, EAT, EBB, EEL, EGG, ELM, EMU, END, EON, ERA, ERE, EWE, ICE, IMP, INN, INS, ION, IRE, IRK, ITS, OAR, OAT, ODD, ODE, OFF, ONTO, OPT, ORB, ORE, OWE, OWN, UMP, UNDO, UNTO, UPSET, URN, YAM, YEA, YEN, YES, YET

 

 

 

 

 

·          Use the "free" and "double" letters, but never use the "free" letter as a first letter. It's free so you should get two letters for one guess. Use the "double" or "triple" letters when you've got a pretty good score to begin with or when you're running out of guesses and you need to fill the meter.
