Code words Large Print puzzle book Vol 1-4

"I purchased this for my parents because they need the large print. They just loved it. It was so good to be able to see the puzzles and letters without having to use a magnifying glass ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ " - Mary Brandenburg

Welcome to this fantastic collection of 100 brand new codeword puzzles, in large print.

If you've not come across a codeword before, it is a coded crossword puzzle. Here are the rules of codewords:

- Each letter from A - Z has been replaced with a number from 1 - 26.

- You need to work out which number represents each letter of the alphabet.

- Every letter appears in the grid and is represented by just one number. For instance, the number 20 might represent the letter 'S', which would mean you could write an 'S' into every square in the grid that contains the number 20.

The aim of the puzzle is to crack the code for every letter and therefore complete a valid crossword grid. You'll need a good vocabulary and astute knowledge of English to be able to crack these puzzles.

There is one puzzle per page and full solutions at the back so you can check your answers, or seek assistance if you need it. You are given a few clue letters for each puzzle to get you started; from there on it's up to you!

More about Large Print CodeWords

All our large print codeword puzzles not only have large grids that are very easy to read, but most importantly of all the numbers within the grids are very easy to read. They use 16pt font, which means that they are very readable - sometimes you might have seen larger grids but still with small numbers in: that's not the case here!

Solving these puzzles is the same as with standard sized puzzles: use the letters given at the start to get the ball rolling. If you hit a roadblock, study the patterns of the numbers and try and make more deductions. Remember that the numbers that you see the most frequently in the grid are almost certainly the most frequently used letters in English: these are, in order, E, T, A: so the most common number is almost certainly one of those.

Also look for patterns where perhaps you have a number a couple of times in a row or even several times in a word: for instance 19,19,24,25: how many words can you think of that start with a double letter? At the very least, does this rule out all the consonants? Have a think about this sort of thing and you can often make progress with even tricky codeword puzzles.

As for the words in the puzzles, you won't need multi-word answers or phrases. And you won't even need proper nouns, beyond the names of countries - all the rest are standard dictionary words, so you won't be struggling to find brands that you haven't heard of or strange multi-word answers as you might find in some codeword puzzles. Enjoy the puzzles!
