How does the word scramble work?
The word scramble is a concept based on mixing up the order of the characters within a word. The challenge then, is to find the original word by looking closely at the given jumbled characters.
As the word scramble puzzle maker, you only have to think about the words that you would like to scramble and the algorithm does the rest. It would be a nice idea to group the words contextually so puzzle players have some kind of grasp on what they are looking for :).
Upgraded subscriptions can also add extra 'hints' to make it easier, like a supporting question or image to provide more information about the scrambled word.
How do players share /submit their completed word scramble puzzle?
Tracking (student) puzzle results is a cool feature that Puzzel.org has built in for upgraded subscriptions. You can add forced registration to see individual results (per question, in real-time), or add a completion message with a 'collect user info' option that allows you to export the submitted puzzle completions.
Can students solve the word scramble puzzle together?
Not yet! But this could be interesting, since this is also has a puzzle field which could be filled together (just like the crossword puzzle). If you fancy this, just let me know and I will see if I can move it up in priority.
Can the word scramble be embedded on my website?
Yes! This is the core goal of Puzzel.org, creating online, interactive and embeddable puzzles :). You do need an upgraded account for this.
Can the word scramble be customised?
Yes! You can adjust the colors and fonts adjust individual settings to make sure the word scramble puzzle is to your liking.
How will my word scramble puzzle look if I upgrade?
Below you see an interactive example word scramble puzzle that shows how cleanly the puzzles show after embedding. Just a responsive puzzle field, no Puzzel.org labels, just puzzle pleasure :)
Do the word scramble puzzles have a hidden solution option?
Yes! The puzzle within the puzzle :). You can add a hidden solution easily via the 'Settings' tab when working on creating your word scramble. This will create highlighted cells that can be used to find the solution.
Can I add a wordbank to the word scramble?
No, not yet! This would provide quite some hints to puzzle players, but might be interesting to make some word scrambles easier and more accessible (for younger ages, for example).
How many people can play my word scramble?
The free version allows 60 puzzle plays per month per account. You can upgrade to a better subscription to allow more puzzle plays.
