The prompt for my International Zine Month 2020: Zine A Day project for Day 29 was Names. For me, that meant making my own wordsearches…
“A word search, word find, word seek, word sleuth or mystery word puzzle is a word game that consists of the letters of words placed in a grid, which usually has a rectangular or square shape. The objective of this puzzle is to find and mark all the words hidden inside the box. The words may be placed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Often a list of the hidden words is provided, but more challenging puzzles may not provide a list. Many word search puzzles have a theme to which all the hidden words are related such as food, animals, or colors.“
I really enjoying wordsearches. They remind me of childhood, and are just puzzling enough to enjoy as an adult. Adult puzzlebooks should definitely be much more of a thing, so I wanted to make my own mini zine full of mini wordsearches! I themed each one around a set of names, and gave a little hint with each puzzle.
In this edition you will find words the relate to cute Antarctic residents, fantasy games, delicious morsels, strange creatures, and more!
I am really keen to make more of these in the future, so do drop a comment down below and let me know what type of puzzlebooks you want to see in my zines?
