I enjoy codewords for relaxation, but not if they are too easy (like the only 'Times' one I have tried, and gave to someone who was a beginner). The codewords in this book are fairly difficult, though with a number of too easy ones. The bit that can catch you out is the fact that American spellings are used. Not only do we lose the 'U' in words like 'colour' but many of the words where our spelling has an 'S', they have a 'Z' and they have 'er at the end of some words where we have 're'. There are not just codeword puzzles in this book - there are many other puzzles, using both letters and numbers. If you fancy emulating the the people from Bletchly (spelling??) this is the book for you. Oh, and it is 3cm/11/4" thick - not exactly pocketable for a train journey.

I have just completed a few Code Words, a Dropout and a Keyword. Most challenging is the first Coded Quote which I have been unable to decipher at first try. There are a lot of different challenges - hence big fat book - and so far I am enjoying the book immensely, and what a great way to increase your knowledge of the English Language.

After reading various reviews I was looking for some slightly more challenging codewords, unfortunately, these are not them :-(
I don't know if I have just done so many that I seem to instantly know what words are, but I am flying through these. The 'Key words' are ridiculously simple and even my ten yr old non-puzzler completed them quickly. The drop words are interesting, the long diversions present a challenge and the coded messages were fun for my son and I to figure out. But, for challenging codewords you may want to look elsewhere. As it is I am just going through the motions of putting all the letters in place.

Format: Paperback
Lots of puzzles, and also scattered with different puzzle types, real bonus! In fact, the book is so thick, when you are at the begginning, you often need to place a paperback on the left side, to get a firm surface to write on (no big deal). The only drawback for us oldies doing these over a coffee together, is that the numbers are a bit small to "share" puzzle solving. This will be fine for puzzlers with good eyesight, or good specs, but normal reading glasses might struggle. Good value.
