How to Start

stay in their original row or column.

The puzzle was invented by Laurence May at Vexus Puzzle Design, Amersham, UK and marketed
as ‘Lexica’. It was designed as a pencil logic puzzle but to me it works most effectively as a
computer puzzle. The Times (from March 2010) and the Sun newspapers publish daily puzzles in print and
online so there are plenty to choose from. The Sun uses the name ‘Word Slide’. My three puzzles
give you an idea of how it works.
