Jumble Tips

Unscrambling words can be difficult if you haven’t done it very often. We’re including some tips that will hopefully improve your Jumble abilities.

  • Relax and have fun: First things first, don’t stress out! Solving jumbles is meant to be enjoyable, so take a deep breath and remind yourself that it’s just a game.
  • Look for common prefixes and suffixes: Words often have familiar beginnings and endings, like “pre-“, “un-“, “-ing”, or “-ed”. If you spot any of these, it might give you a hint about the word’s structure.
  • Break it down: Try dividing the letters into smaller groups. Sometimes, it’s easier to see patterns when you’re not looking at the whole jumble at once.
  • Count the vowels and consonants: Knowing the ratio of vowels to consonants can help you figure out possible word structures. For example, a word with more vowels might be easier to solve than one with mostly consonants.
  • Rearrange the letters: Physically moving the letters around can help you spot potential words. You can use letter tiles, magnets, or even just pen and paper to shuffle the letters and see what pops out.
  • Think out loud: Sometimes, saying the letters aloud can help you hear familiar sounds and recognize words. Don’t be shy – give it a shot!
  • Look for smaller words: Even if you can’t unscramble the whole jumble right away, try to find smaller words within it. These mini-discoveries can be stepping stones to the full solution.
  • Give yourself time: Don’t expect to solve the jumble instantly. It’s normal to need a little time to think and experiment with different combinations. Remember, practice makes perfect!
  • Use a buddy system: Grab a friend or family member to tackle the jumble together. Two (or more) heads are often better than one!
  • Don’t be afraid to guess: Sometimes, you just need to make an educated guess and see if it works. You might be surprised by how often your instincts lead you in the right direction!

    There is no such word in the dictionary as: SNUCK
    Some people still know how to spell. Look up your words before you present for publication!

  2. Ace

    On the 2/23 Jumble, the third clue is closet, not sunset. The letters don’t add up.

      I checked and it is definitely sunset.

      1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

        I did find a version that is showing CLOSET, so i’ve updated the post. Thanks.
