Chapter One

How to Conjure Magick Word–Doku Puzzles

Magick Word-Doku puzzles come in two sizes: six-letter magick words and nine-letter magick words.

Six-Letter Word-Doku Puzzles

A grid of six squares by six squares can also be divided into six smaller grids of two squares by three squares. You want to fill in the grid with the letters from your Word-Doku word. For example, the word "magick" has six letters. Summon your powers of logic and elimination to fill the grid with the letters m, a, g, i, c, and k. It's just like Sudoku except that you use letters instead of numbers.

A Word-Doku puzzle is finished when:

  • Each horizontal row contains each letter exactly once.
  • Each vertical column contains each letter exactly once.
  • Each smaller two-by-three grid contains each letter exactly once.
  • Your Word-Doku word will appear with the letters in the correct order only once. Note that the word may appear backwards.

In each Word-Doku puzzle, several correct letters have already been entered for you.
