WUZZLES are word puzzles consisting of combinations of words, letters, figures or symbols positioned to create disguised words, phrases, names, places, sayings etc. This type of puzzle is called a rebus — a word and symbol puzzle that dates back more than 2,000 years to the Persian Empire.
The secret to solving WUZZLES word puzzles is to determine the missing “concept,” such as in, on, over, under, before, after, between etc. For example, the solution to NOON GOOD is “Good afternoon,” and LINE READ LINE is “Read between the lines.
