How to Solve Brain Pleasers

by Alan Stillson

Brain Pleasers has four puzzle types: Hidden Words, Letter Drops, Endings, and Vowels on Vacation.

Here’s an example of each puzzle type to help you see the idea:

HIDDEN WORDS:
Find consecutive letters in two or more consecutive words to spell out an answer that fits the category.

Category: Numbers
Example: We put worms on the hook
Answer: TWO (we put worms on the hook)

LETTER DROPS:
Drop five letters so that the remaining letters, in order, will spell out an answer that fits the category. On challenge questions, drop seven letters.

Category: States
Example: Lion sweat
Answer: IOWA (lion sweat)

ENDINGS:
Find an answer that fits the category and ends with the given letters, in order.

Category: Zoo animals
Example: tamus
Answer: HIPPOPOTAMUS (Hippopotamus)

VOWELS ON VACATION:
Find an answer that fits the category by inserting the correct vowels into the consonants and separating into two words.

Category: Foods
Example: nglshmffn
Answer: ENGLISH MUFFIN (English muffin)

HINTS

If you get stuck, don’t forget you can get hints by tapping on the light bulb icon. You have the option to reveal a letter or answer and also to clear out any errors. It’s not cheating to ask for a hint — the goal is to have fun, so if asking for a hint increases your enjoyment, feel free.
