How to Solve Mentagy™ Puzzles
by Allyn Kahn
There are only three rules for solving Mentagy Puzzles:
A TO Z RULE:
The letters from A to Z are connected in alphabetical order.
For example, the B is adjacent to the A, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally; the C is adjacent to the B; and so on.
Every 2x2 box contains sequential letters.
For example, a box can contain D, E, and F; or E, F, and G; but not just D, E, and G.
Every row and column contains exactly one vowel: A, E , I , O , U or Y.
Try the Mentagy Tutorial which has a sample puzzle with a detailed explanation of how to solve it.
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.
