Make your own word search puzzle

You can use this page to create your own word search puzzle with your own list of words. These puzzles are popular with different groups of people, especially teachers and students.

I had a disk drive that died on me. I took the opportunity to update the OS as well. Let me know if you see anything that doesn't work the way it used to.

Please enter a set of words. When you are done, hit the "Make Puzzle" button to generate a word search puzzle. Once the puzzle is displayed, you can use the "Printable HTML" or "Printable PDF" buttons to get a clean page suitable for printing with your web browser.

The puzzle that is generated will remain on this server for about two months. If you want to ensure that you have a copy of the generated puzzle, make sure you save a copy.

Some users list their puzzles for all to see.

If you want help with international characters, you can call up an Alphabet chart to use for cutting and pasting letters that are hard to type. This chart will come up in a separate window.

Some people find this word list form too small, or want to have hidden words. There is another form with many more words, but large puzzles will take a longer time to generate. Be patient.

Tip: This site can now handle characters from many different languages. If you can enter it as a UTF-8 character, it should work. See the Alphabet chart for some of the characters.
