Word Scrambles That Make You Think
by Chris McMullen and Carolyn Kivett


Overview - These word scrambles have a unique twist: Some of the letters are paired together. For example, the word 'verbal' could be written by combining V, Er, B, and Al together in the form V Er B Al . Pairing some letters in this way, we made word scrambles with 4 to 8 symbols (one symbol being either a single letter or a pair of letters), which consist of 4 to 16 letters.  Read more...

Overview
These word scrambles have a unique twist: Some of the letters are paired together. For example, the word 'verbal' could be written by combining V, Er, B, and Al together in the form V Er B Al . Pairing some letters in this way, we made word scrambles with 4 to 8 symbols (one symbol being either a single letter or a pair of letters), which consist of 4 to 16 letters. Many word scramble books consist mostly of words with 4 to 5 letters, which are often too easy to solve. However, a word scramble that consists of 4 to 5 symbols rather than letters, makes use of a vocabulary of longer words, and is therefore somewhat more challenging. For example, 'nature' would ordinarily be a 6-letter word, but N At U Re is a 4-symbol word. The difference is that the A and t (and similarly the R and e) can be split when writing 'nature' with letters, but not in the symbolic version, N At U Re . Our goal with this word scramble book was to create word scrambles that would require more thought than traditional word scrambles, yet still involve common words and be reasonable to solve. This book starts out easy to allow puzzlers to get the hang of it and becomes progressively more thought-provoking. ** Here are some examples with the unscrambled answers in parentheses: K In Th (ThInK), Ge Ra N Ar (ArRaNGe), U Mo Li Ne Si (LiMoUSiNe), U N O Ce N Pr O (PrONOUNCe), K Er Tc U N Ra C (NUTcRaCKEr). ** We hope that you enjoy solving these puzzles as much as we enjoyed making them.
