  • Word Searches are puzzles in which players must find all of the words in a list that are hidden inside a grid.
  • Word Scrambles involve putting a list of words into a random order. Players have to find the correct word.

All of these puzzles can be solved by using tips that help players look for patterns. For example, repeating letters can be a clue that two words are near each other on the grid.
