The Intellectual Contest

Discussion in 'Share Your EMC Creations' started by Biscuitboy, May 23, 2012.

  1. The Official Intellectual Contest


    The Challenge:
    You will be given a 12x12 grid, 11 words (6 minecraft related words and 5 EMC member names), and some shapes. These shapes have have boxes with one letter in each box. You have to fit these shapes in the grid so that all the shapes are used to fill in the entire 12x12 grid and all the words can be found either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
    In short it is an advanced word scramble mixed with a word find.

    The Hard Part:

    In order to find all the words you not only have to fit all the pieces correctly into the grid, but you have to rearrange the letters in the individual shapes. Some will not have to be rearranged and some will. (Only rearranged in their original shapes)

    How you win!:

    Be the 1st person to correctly solve the Word Find (More than one answer is acceptable as long as all the shapes retain their specific shape the 12x12 grid is formed and all the words can be found due to extraneous letters)

    Prizes as of now:
