PuzzleNation's Penny Dell Classic Word Search featuring TOUCHtoSOLVE™ technology is the brainchild of some of the world's leading publishers, creators, and editors of traditional puzzle magazines at Penny Press and Dell Magazines.

Getting started is easy - the words on the list are hidden in the diagram of letters. Search for them by reading forward, backward, up, down and diagonally, always in a straight line. Do not skip over any letters. Some of the letters in a diagram are used in more than one word and some are not used in any words.

When you locate a word in the diagram, draw a loop around it by dragging your finger from one end of the word to the other. Correct words will be looped in the diagram and crossed off on the word list.

What makes our puzzle game special? That's easy - consistently superior editorial quality, as provided by the expert editors at Penny Press and Dell Magazines, PuzzleNation.com and other leading puzzlemakers from around the world.

best word search yet, BY FAR 🌟

I've tried several word search apps but this is a million times better than any of them!!! It's fascinating - they've got puzzles and clues that are so much more engaging than any other app I've seen! Plus, they include a paragraph of concise and interesting info about the topic of the puzzle. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT! As an added bonus, so far, there aren't any spelling errors - it's a miracle! This is the real deal - fun, enchanting, and addictive!

Best Word Search!!

This is the best word search app ever! I've tried many others and this is the most challenging and the most fun! It has many words in each puzzle. Other apps only have 8 or 10 words per puzzle. You've tried the rest now try the BEST!!

Love it!

I will purchase all of the available puzzle packs. So far this is the closest I've seen to my much loved word search games that I solved in Dell Word Search books. The layout is good, there are more than the 10 words you get in other apps that I tried. Dell, keep them coming and, just for variety, how about some number searches and word twists?
