Codewords are crosswords without written clues. You are provided with a grid, and each square contains a number 1 to 26 (ie. the letters of the alphabet).
With each puzzle, you are given a small number of letters to start you off. Your challenge is to study the numerical patterns in the grid, and using your literacy, logic and critical thinking skills tp crack the inbuilt code and spell out all the words. For example P might be 18 and X might be 9. These given letters are your clues, or the key to solving the puzzle.
Once you have completed the grid, your word power challenge doesn’t stop there. You can then spend some time reviewing the words and seeing how many you know, and checking the meanings of the ones you don’t. This will build your vocabulary and general knowledge.
