Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
It’s a word-puzzle lover’s dream team: David L. Hoyt, the most syndicated puzzle writer in the country, and Merriam-Webster, America’s most trusted dictionary. Published in visually striking full color, here are over 400 inventive, entertaining, and truly challenging word games and puzzles designed to stretch the mind and even increase vocabulary. And it’s in the format that users love—the travel-friendly, gift-friendly 4" x 6" chunky size.

In Mixed-Up Definition, unscramble the letters to reveal the definition of a given word. In Syllabary, use the clues to link syllables in a grid to create words. In Cross’d Word Connections, find the letters in common to help solve a series of four crossword puzzles. Plus Dictionary Race Winder, Make the Connection, Color Word Chains, Prism Word Finder, and other clever riffs on word searches.

The book features 20 puzzle types, which are arranged in a mixed fashion throughout for maximum variety and stimulation. They range in difficulty from an easy “1” to a brain-busting “10”—so puzzle lovers of all skill levels will be tested— and include spaces for recording completion times. Each puzzle type is explained in clear instructions, and all answers are printed in the back.
