How it works 

Word Star puzzles each consist of a single word, placed in a circle. The puzzler must find the starting letter and the number of steps to skip, to find the word. For 5-letter words this may seem easy, but for words or phrases of 10 or more letters, this is increasingly difficult.

Word Star was derived from the Dutch puzzle “Paardensprong”, or the Knight’s Move in chess. Drawn as a 3×3 grid, using 8 letters, you can find the solution by applying the classic chess knight’s move. This puzzle style is available in Word Star, and it works well for 8-letter words.

For all other words and phrases, we have expanded this puzzle to words or phrases of 5 up to 35 letters and varying ‘skip’ options, depending on the length of the word.

You can create one single puzzle, or use a word list to create 5, 10 or 100’s of puzzles at once. You can even add a clue to each puzzle, which can be printed on the puzzle page along with the puzzle. For example: Italy – Country in Europe. Or more complex: “I am easily satisfied with the very best – Saying by a famous politician and writer”. You can either type or copy these words and clues into the Word List area or save them in a text file and select that file to use.

As you would expect from BookPublisherTools, there are many options to customize your puzzle, such as fonts, colors, the way the solution is drawn, and much more.

The Puzzle Maker Pro system

Puzzle Maker Pro – Word Star is one of the modules in Puzzle Maker Pro. All the standard Puzzle Maker Pro features are included in your purchase, such as:

  • Presets – You can save the settings as a preset and use these presets for different projects or book series, making it even easier to create puzzles with your unique styling. In addition to that, after creating or previewing your puzzles, the settings will be saved for the next session.
  • Save and Export Options – Once you're satisfied with the preview and are ready to create puzzles, there are several output options to suit your needs: Puzzles and solutions will be created as separate files on your computer in either PNG or JPG format. This allows you to use these puzzles anywhere and any way you want. The images are saved with 300 DPI for professional high-quality printing.
    There are also additional output options to automatically create a puzzle book. In addition to PNG and JPG you can export to PDF or Powerpoint format. You don’t need Powerpoint to create the files, but you’ll need Powerpoint 2007 or newer to open the files.
  • Time Saver – There is currently no Time Saver extension module for Word Star. However, if you have any of the Time Saver extensions, you’ll have access to additional layout options.
