How to Solve Mixed Doubles Puzzles
by Parker Lewis
Mixed Doubles puzzles are designed to test your anagramming skills. Each puzzle consists of a category, an alphabetical list of bigrams (groups of two letters), and the answer boxes. The goal is to arrange the bigrams to form two answers of equal length that both fit the specified category.
Mixed Doubles Tens are puzzles with two ten-letter answers. One of the bigrams will be given to you but the other nine placements are for you to figure out.

Mixed Doubles Elevens are puzzles with two eleven-letter answers. None of the bigrams are placed for you, however the first letter of the first answer and the last letter of the second answer are given.

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.
