    • Basic rules
      • Highlight the words listed on the left side of the screen.
        • To highlight a word, start from the first letter and end with the last.
          • If the word appears backwards, start from the right and move to the left.
          • If the word appears bottom-to-top, start from the bottom.
        • Words appear across the grid and in any direction.
          • Words that appear horizontally can be spelled left-to-right or right-to-left.
          • Words that appear vertically can be spelled up-down or down-up.
          • Words that appear diagonally can be spelled in any direction.
      • Check the word list for he words you must find.
        • You will not see all of the words at once. Only 10 words are visible onscreen at any given time.
        • The total number of words you must find is shown below the list. Each time you find a word, it subtracts 1 from the total.
        • Each time you solve one word, a new word replaces it until only 10 remain.
      • Although the game has a timer, it does not have a time limit.
        • If you’re new to the game, take all the time you need.
        • If you want to challenge yourself, see if you can beat your previous times in the next puzzle.
    • Tips and tricks
      • Search for multiple words at a time. This will help you identify the positions of one word without needing to find the others.
      • Use an object (either a pencil or a ruler) to guide you through the rows of the grid. This is especially handy if you print out the puzzle.
      • Another on-paper trick you can use is to cross out the words as you find them. You don’t need to do this in the online version as the game removes them from the list for you.
      • If you’re solving the puzzle on paper, consider turning it upside down.
      • Find the letters of the words and see if you can build them up:
        • Try to look for pairs of letters. This is especially useful if a word has two of the same letter appear consecutively (e.g. boot, bills, poor).
        • You can also try this with the last 3 letters of a word.
        • This method is especially useful for words that are difficult to find.
      • The game is not timed. But if you want to work fast anyway, start with the more obvious words first before going after the difficult ones.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for people of all ages who like word finder games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
