How can I improve my odds of finishing Syllacrostic?

In Syllacrostic, you may be confronted with as many as 10 clues — and dozens of syllables to combine into words. It’s a lot to handle, especially as the game begins. However, the game becomes easier as you start completing some of the clues.


To make your experience as smooth as possible, try looking for clues that require very specific answers. A vague clue that simply says “Perfect” could have a million answers; “Sushi Bar Drink” is a lot more specific. (It’s sake!)


After working through clues this way, be sure to use the green shuffle button to move the syllables around. You never know when a new grouping of syllables will lead to you coming up with an easy answer.
