Tip: One tip that seems to help solve a lot of puzzles without having to use a clue is to determine one word you’re sure is in the puzzle and place it anywhere by tapping on the letters. The intention is to remove letters from the bottom letter tray and study which letters remain. You can usually unscramble these letters to find a missing word or phrase. After you figured out the answer, recall all the letters and place them in the proper order.
Tip: If you’re really stuck, you can use the remove letters clue to remove all non-essential letters and run the remainder through an anagram finder such as the Internet Anagram Server
