Puzzle Exchange - Word Search

Recommended Posts

As people all over the world are searching for Easter eggs, we’ll be exchanging… WORD SEARCHES!!

The word search is a very common sight on HOL. A mix of letters are arranged in a grid, usually rectangular in shape. The goal of the puzzle is to find all the words hidden in the grid. Words may be oriented horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Additionally, they may be forward or backward. The first word search is credited to Norman E. Gibat, who published an Oklahoma-themed puzzle in the Selenby Digest on March 1, 1968.

Put together a list of 10 or more words and create your own word search! There are several word search generators available online. My personal favorite is this one. You could also make a word search manually.

Post your puzzles below along with the following information:

  • Title or theme
  • Word list or minimum length of words
  • Total number of words hidden (at least 10)
  • How to submit the solution (E-mail, Dungeons PM, HOL message, etc.)

Each puzzle you make is worth 10 scales. Solving someone else’s puzzle earns you 5 scales. You are allowed to post and/or solve multiple puzzles, but keep in mind that the maximum number of scales you can earn per month from Puzzle Exchange is 50 scales.

Please remember to edit your post when other people solve your puzzle(s) so they can receive their scales.

I originally made this for the Alte Sententiam, but you are welcome to try it for scales! 

If you can't read the clues, they say:

  • Opposite of summoning
  • Five birds
  • Five wand woods
  • _________ Alley
  • Wizarding publisher: _________  _________  _________

Send me the solution via Dungeons PM with the subject: Word Hunt
