Creating Puzzles for Word-Game-World

Some of the best puzzles here are the ones I created myself. Of course, I've written OODLES of interesting crosswords and word search puzzles, many with fun twists.

But the ones I think you'll really love are the formats you won't find anywhere else. I enjoy creating new types of words games, and you'll find several sprinkled throughout this website. Here are three of my favorites:

Don't miss these other popular topics:

Every puzzle and game I write is with YOU in mind. I ask myself, "Will this be FUN or INTERESTING to someone else? Have people been asking for this type of puzzle? Has this topic been popular in the past?

Valentine Word Search from www.word-game-world.com

I also think about how to add a new twist to an old format. For example, look at this popular Valentine's word search. Instead of supplying your with a word list, you need to discover the words for yourself. I give you one clue: Each word is spelled using only the letters in VALENTINE!

Directions to my users

Free Brain Games Sampler

Use the buttons on the left to find a general category of interest to you. Click on it to find a directory of puzzles in that format. Scan the list to find the ones that fit you best. Then print and play, print and play, and repeat! Some of the puzzles you'll be able to solve without printing, simply by reading through the puzzle and jotting down your answers.

Most puzzles include printable versions. All puzzles include answers. Sometimes, as in the brain games simpler page, the answers are hidden under orange "See the Solution!" button. Usually, however, the answers appear with the printable version. 

If you'd like to see a certain type of puzzle here, or MORE of something, or a specific topic that I've not yet covered, please contact me. I try to read and respond quickly.
