Synopses & Reviews
Codewords are the perfect alternative to Sudoku and crosswords—no number crunching and no wealth of knowledge are necessary to play. Logic and vocabulary are all you need to decode these satisfying ciphers.
In many cultures, the number 4 is closely connected to the order of the world. To solve this 4th collection of 100 brand-new Codeword puzzles, order and logic will be useful tools. A Codeword is a special kind of crossword: There are no clues, and all of the answers are placed in the grid, but they are in code. Each letter of the alphabet appears at least once in the grid, and each has been substituted for a number, from 1 to 26. In a Codeword puzzle, a single letter is always represented by the same number wherever it appears in the puzzle. The challenge is to decipher the code. Two or three letters are revealed to give the solver a head start. Only dictionary words are deployed (no proper nouns appear in the grids), so a good knowledge of English, plus a bit of logic, will help you solve these puzzles.
This attractive, tidy package is sized for portability and is part of our best-selling series of puzzle books that feature highly stylized, embellished covers and boast 5 million copies in print. A free trial subscription to The Puzzle Society™ adds extra value.
