I’m excited to present my first Zig Zag Puzzle. There’s a word version that you can actually type into or a pdf version if you want to just print it out and do it that way.
I stumbled onto these type of puzzles today and was absolutely hooked! Here’s a quick explanation:
The goal is to write out all of the 17 words in hiragana, filling in every space in the puzzle. Start with the numbered boxes and then decide how you should write out the word. Your typical crossword or word search has the words written in a straight line, but zig zag puzzles can change direction after each letter/character! Other than diagonal, any direction is possible. =)
Well there you go. Let me know if you would like the answer sheet to check if you did it correctly. Enjoy!
BTW if you’re confused, this site gives a great explanation of how to do these kinds of puzzles, with pictures too.
