How To Play Codewords

Games : Puzzles

Codewords is a puzzle whereby you are given a crossword grid with a difference.

You need to replace the numbers with a corresponding letter of the alphabet.

For instance, all the 1's may be S's all the 2's T's and so on.

You are given a few letters to start you off and need to work forward from there to work out all the letters.

All letters, A - Z, will be there.

The best way to start is to write in the given letters; these will be enough for you to work out a word, which you can then use to add more letters.

Tips:

Look for frequent letters, these are normally the vowels and particularly E.

Note that the unusual letters are often in places that won't impact cross words, e.g. the Z may be in position two in a run that has crossovers at 1 and 5.
