My father used to do the Daily Mail codewords every day, but he always started by assuming the most common number must represent E (so he hated most puzzles made by my system! Codewords puzzles are similar to crosswords, but instead of clues, each letter has been replaced by a number from 1 to 26, and you need to figure out which letter each number represents. There are time penalties when one uses hints which, while dispiriting, serve to concentrate the mind and dissuade the player from taking the easy option. This is important, because a codeword is not composed purely of words in common usage, but will also include other dictionary words. and only _=N and _=L fit them all, which narrows it down a lot, and other clues often reveal the answer completely.

In particular, short words can reveal possibilities, while longer words are useful for checking and eliminating the possibilities (since, while it is harder to think of words that fit, it is easier to verify that no word matches -n-at-e-n. But the words themselves are not sourced from English alone, as you can see when you look some of them up in the horrid dictionary. If you are familiar with cryptograms and love crosswords, this game will definitely challenge your brain to think differently.I occasionally can use this for codewords as well, particularly if there are multiple starting letters in a single long word, which narrows down its output considerably. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. There is even an early learner mode with a limited number of words, aimed at children and English language learners.
