Solving TIPS & HINTS
Remember that every letter MUST have a different value, so if you have already
found beyond doubt that O=19 then NO OTHER LETTER CAN TAKE THAT VALUE.
NO LETTER CAN HAVE A VALUE > 26
Letter values can be ONE or TWO digit values.
(that is the hardest part to grasp with Alphanumeric Puzzles)
Until the values 1 and 2 have been assigned, you will find that
You often need to hold onto alternative values for letters.
Eg. It may be that for a while know that a letter
Has a value 1 OR 12 , or, 2 OR 23 etc
These alternatives are crucial components to hang onto until it can
be proved which value is correct beyond doubt.
A correct letter value ALWAYS becomes obvious in the end.
Progress is made by always carefully selecting the next BEST word:
Usually a word with the most already established letters-values included.
Each puzzle starts tough, and gradually gets easier as letter values are established,
and as unsolved grid-space becomes more scarce.
