How To Play Codewords

Codewords are crosswords with no clues! Instead, every letter of the alphabet has been replaced by a number, the same number representing the same letter throughout the puzzle.

All you have to do is decide which letter is represented by which number!

To start you off, we reveal the codes for two or three letters.

When these letters have been entered throughout the puzzle, you should have enough information to start guessing words and discovering other letters.

Entering Letters

To enter a word, simply click on the square in which you want to begin typing. The color of the selected square will appear in yellow.
Type the letter you believe is the correct letter represented by the number in that square. All other occurrences of that letter will be filled in automatically.
