Overview

Anagram loops, mixagrams, pentads, and phrase forays: if you love wordplay, these intriguing puzzles are better than crosswords! They don't have those awful, never-before-heard words meant just to trip you up. And 7 out of these 10 puzzles have no clues at all! You complete them by doing anagrams or by using the three or four letters provided to get you started. Begin with the simplest and make your way up the ladder to the hardest and trickiest. Split decisions have letter pairs in a grid, surrounded by empty squares. Each answer consists of a pair of words that share the letters that should be entered in those squares. For example: Go two by two to complete miniature crisscross puzzles: the vowels are there, but you have to add the correct consonants. Mixagrams have a five- and a four-letter word on each line; their letters have been mixed together, but their order is unchanged--just like this: D A R I U N V E T = DRIVE + AUNT It's hours and hours of braintwisting! 96 pages, 63 b/w illus., 5 3/8 x 8 1/4.
