Message from Susan about Codeword Puzzles:

“I absolutely LOVE solving codeword puzzles. Every night I solve a puzzle. The funny thing is: it relaxes me. You'd think solving puzzles would keep you awake, right?!”

She added, "Codeword puzzles look like a regular crossword puzzle. So what's the difference? Instead of verbal clues, you have numbers in each square. 

For example: Look for letters that repeat often, like an “E” for instance. If you decide that “18” is a likely contender for an “E”, then place a letter E in every square in the puzzle that contains the number “18.” Then enter an “E” in the box numbered “18” in the grid directly below the puzzle."

I wish you hours of code-cracking fun! Don't forget, there are three volumes out now. I'm getting requests to add more!

Fascinating History Behind Codeword Puzzles

Did you know that codeword puzzles, also known as Codebreakers or Code-Cracking puzzles, have a fascinating history that can be traced back to the early 20th century? These puzzles gained popularity and became a favorite among puzzle enthusiasts due to their unique and challenging nature.

I don't know the exact origin of codeword puzzles, but they share similarities with other word puzzles that involve code-breaking. Using coded letters or numbers to form words or phrases originated from secret codes and ciphers used in espionage and cryptography!

During World War II, code-breaking played a crucial role in military intelligence, and puzzles inspired by these wartime experiences surfaced. People found joy and fascination in attempting to decipher hidden messages and crack codes, leading to codeword puzzles as a recreational activity.

Codewords Can Be Traced Back to the 1930s

The earliest known published codeword puzzles can be traced back to the 1930s. Magazines, newspapers, and puzzle books began featuring these puzzles as entertainment. Over time, codeword puzzles became popular and a staple in puzzle publications worldwide.

The concept of codeword puzzles revolves around a grid of empty squares, each representing a letter. Instead of being given explicit clues, the solver is provided with a numerical code or key that corresponds to each letter. By using deductive reasoning and pattern recognition, solvers must decipher the hidden words or phrases by identifying the correct letter that corresponds to each number in the given clues.

A Unique Twist!

Susan's Codeword puzzles offer a unique twist compared to traditional crosswords or word searches. They combine elements of logic, deduction, and vocabulary skills, making them a favorite among puzzle enthusiasts who crave a challenge. These puzzles provide a mental workout and an opportunity to unleash problem-solving abilities in a fun and intriguing way.

Today, codeword puzzles continue to capture the imagination of puzzle enthusiasts worldwide. They can be enjoyed in various formats, including books, magazines, and online platforms. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned solver, tackling codeword puzzles offers a rewarding experience that tests your wits and keeps you entertained.
