Overview

Do you belong in the "Dictionary Hall of Fame?" Find out, with these 101 colossal puzzles that build your brainpower even as they test your vocabulary skills. Take the "tricky trios" challenge: the goal is to come up with as many words as possible that contain certain 3-letter sequences, such as E-G-R or O-X-Y. Figure out how many different words can be created out of another; a real master can find more than 60 in the playful noun "gamester." Fill out an "N"-shaped grid with words that begin and end in that same letter. (Some of the clues include Gary Cooper western "High ____"and "37th U.S. President") In "Great Beginnings" puzzles, you get the first two letters of a word plus a hint to its identity. Word searches feature fun subjects such as Oscar winners. Loads of real toughies will have puzzle lovers begging for the dictionary-but they won't be able to put this down.
