Word Search Tips & Tricks
· Rather than looking for the first letter of a word, look for the most distinctive combination of letters – you’d find LETTERS much faster if you look for two Ts together, than if you just scan the grid for Ls!
· Beware of partial words! Many times, a puzzle will try to fool you by repeating half of a listed word, somewhere else in the grid. Make sure the whole word is there, before you waste time clicking.
· Don’t be afraid to use the Hint button! Remember, you only have five minutes to solve as many puzzles as possible. If you’re stuck on a word, just get a hint and move on.
· Stumped in the Bonus Round? Remember, words don’t always have a direct association to the clue – TREES may include OAK and ELM, but also FAMILY and DECISION. Get creative, and think fast!
