Library Word Find Puzzle

   January 22nd, 2009

library word find puzzleHere's another way to be interactive with flickr - a cool little find-a-word puzzle.

Check out the puzzle on flickr, log in, and use the Add Note tool to circle words as you find them. Because this is flickr, all the words are either horizontal or vertical, but can be either forwards or backwards.

I put a lot of words in to hopefully let a lot of people play - please only circle a couple words, so everyone can have a chance. All of the hidden words are listed below the image in the description.

I thought this could be a fun thing for libraries to do for their patrons. The puzzle is easy to create (I used a spreadsheet [xls] and print preview - not quite as easy as the library crossword, I admit) and can be made on any theme. I also like that more than one person can work on it, so they can be solved as teams.

I'm actually stealing this idea and modifying it with library words. There are other puzzles on flickr, and where this idea originated will be obvious - but NSFW.

    Sorry – I had my flickr account set so that only contacts could add notes. I didn’t even know that was an option. I changed it so that anyone can add notes to all my photos.

    For anyone else who didn’t know about that, it’s under Your Account > Privacy & Permissions > Defaults for new uploads > Who will be able to see, comment on, or add notes
