Chemical word scrambles are an exciting new form of word puzzles. You don’t need to know any chemistry! These chemical word scrambles will appeal to all word puzzle lovers, whether or not they also enjoy science. Each word is composed of symbols from the periodic table, instead of letters; but you don’t need to be familiar with the periodic table to solve the word scrambles. Here is an example: The words BRaIn PoWEr are composed of the following symbols for chemical elements: B for boron, Ra for radium, In for indium, Po for polonium, W for tungsten, and Er for erbium. In chemical word scrambles, the words have been scrambled by rearranging the symbols – not the letters. Symbols that have two letters – like He for helium and Nd for neodymium – can’t be split or have their letters reordered. This creates a significant distinction between ordinary word scrambles and chemical word scrambles. For example, the symbols Er, V, S, and Es may be combined to form the word SErVEs, but not the word SEVErs because symbols would have to be split to form SEVErs. One neat difference between ordinary word scrambles and chemical word scrambles is that chemical word scrambles allow us to make use of a vocabulary of longer words without effectively increasing the difficulty of the puzzle. For example, the word VErBAl is a 6-letter word, but only a 4-symbol word. When trying to rearrange the symbols Al, Er, B, and V to form the word VErBAl, there are fewer permutations to consider compared to rearranging the 6 letters A, l, e, r, b, and v to form the word verbal. We saw this as an excellent opportunity to make word scramble puzzles that involve a vocabulary of longer words. The level of difficulty of this Chemical Word Scrambles puzzle book is HARD. This book involves words that mostly have 6 to 7 symbols, and therefore 6 to 14 letters; all of the challenge words of this HARD book have 8 symbols. (There is also an EASY book with 4 to 5 symbol words, and a MEDIUM book with 6 symbols. Puzzlers who can solve harder word scrambles may want to begin with the EASY volume to get the hang of unscrambling words in terms of chemical symbols before moving onto MEDIUM or HARD.) Each puzzle features a challenge word made by rearranging the first symbol of each word. A unique feature of this book is that there is a Hints section at the back separate from the Answers section, for puzzlers who may be stuck and want to check just the first letter of the solution.

From the Author:

Many customers who enjoyed these word scramble books have shared their thoughts with the authors (Carolyn Kivett and Chris McMullen). Here are some of the things customers like about this series.

Plenty of puzzles. Most of the word scramble books in this series have over 500 word scrambles. That's a lot of puzzle fun to enjoy.

Hints. Each book has not only an answer key, but also a separate section of hints with the first letter of each answer. Many customers appreciate this handy feature. Sometimes, the answer is a word you know, but you're just not thinking of it. The hint often helps you figure it out without completely giving it away.

. Each page is a puzzle with several related words. The final word scramble is the theme of the puzzle. Knowing that the words are related helps to figure out the harder puzzles.

Unique. Several of the word scramble puzzles are unique, such VErBAl ReAcTiONS, where all the words are made from symbols from the periodic table (like GeNiUS and BRaInIAc) and the puzzles look like chemical reactions. You don't need to know any science to solve these puzzles though. It's pure word scramble fun for word puzzle enthusiasts.
