    Dill in the grid 10-1-2017 word puzzle

    The rules are simple. A crossword-like grid will be given to you with a few letters already inserted in the grid. Your mission, should you feel up to the challenge, is to fill the rest of the puzzle with the following restrictions:
    1) Your words must read left to right and top to bottom.
    2) Words cannot be repeated (you can use a word only once in a grid)
    3) Words must come from the CSW 15 Lexicon, which is the Official International English Scrabble word list compiled by Harper-Collins. You can check for the validity of a word at https://www.anagrammer.com/
    4) There is ONLY 1 SOLUTION to the puzzle !

    That was harder but I've met two of the words before, TIARA and CINQ. Aren't EQUES a class of Romans?

    Yes, "EQUES" was a roman horseman.

    You can check it out at https://www.collinsdictionary.com/sc...e-word-finder/

    And, yes, that was quick! Great job!

    Two syllables, EK followed by WES, as spoken by a Spaniard because they're the nearest sound on earth to an ancient Roman.

    Hello MagentaFlame,
    Sorry to hear that you are sick in bed. I will do my best to keep you busy with more puzzles. But if you like these kinds of puzzles, you would probably like the game I created called "Typing Tiles". It is available for Android at https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ingTiles&hl=en
    and for IOS at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/typi...255271144?mt=8
    The game is free and you would have dozens of puzzles to play with. The puzzles are of a different type, but the game is based on the same algorithm I use to create the "Fill the grid" puzzles.
    The game is free and is a mixture of Scrabble, hangman, and concentration.
    Go ahead, try it and let me know what you think.

    Make sure you take a look at the FAQ to understand what "FORCING" is. For those interested, that might give them an inkling of how my puzzle generator works.

    Get well soon.

    Re: Dill in the grid 10-1-2017 word puzzle

    Are you planning to start a new thread every time you do a new puzzle? Wouldn't it be simpler to just use the same thread?
    Just wondering

    Re: Dill in the grid 10-1-2017 word puzzle

    In fact I did start with a single thread, but then I wondered how I could stay organized with the different puzzles. I am trying to post one new puzzle per day and I would hate to have to look through a single thread for the responses associated with puzzle X and then puzzle Y, etc... But I am open to suggestions. Perhaps one can convince me that the best thing to do is to have a single thread.

    Sorry to hear of your predicament. Are you saying that you do not have a phone or that you are not allowed to have a phone where you are?
    In any case, you can still try an older version of the game on Facebook at https://apps.facebook.com/typingtiles
