For anyone not familiar with the concept, these puzzles presents you with a grid of letters, seemingly all jumbled up, and a list of words. Your challenge is to find all of the words hidden within this grid. These puzzles are often designed as word searches for kids with a short list of simple words, and with those words only appearing in the grid in natural directions (horizontally left to right, and vertically top to bottom). However, the searches can be aimed at any age group, using far more complex lists of words and with the words appearing in any of all 8 possible directions.
Your puzzle_writers just might come up with their own creative twist on the popular word search puzzle format. Maybe they will even start compiling their own word lists to use in the future. And they just might get the same puzzle_writing itch that this author has had since she was eight years old!
