There are seven birds hidden in the grid below. To spell out each one, start at a letter and move up, down, left, right, or diagonally. Letters can be used more than once — even within a word — but you can’t use a letter two times in a row. Can you find all seven birds?
You’re a spy, and you’ve just received an important message from your contact. But something must have gone wrong — not only are there no spaces between the words, but the entire middle of the message has been wiped away! Can you figure out enough of the letters to learn what your contact wants you to do?
In each puzzle below, you can take a letter (or two letters) from a box in each column, and spell out a word that belongs to the category shown. For instance, you can spell EARTH by taking the shaded letters from each column. Can you get the rest of the planets, and then solve the other puzzles as well?
Each set of numbers below, when dialed on a phone keypad, will spell out the name of a sport. For instance, the first set of numbers, 4653, can be turned into the word GOLF. You’ll have to figure out which of the three (or four) letters each digit stands for. Can you call up all the answers? The last few are a little on the tricky side.
No, really, this is a maze. Start at the word WAY in the top row, and make your way to the word OUT. You can only move up, down, left, or right, and each word you move to must share a letter with the word you’re currently on. So you can move in any direction from WAY, because AGE shares the A, OWE shares the W, and BOY shares the Y. But which way should you go? Watch out for dead ends. Can you find your way out?
