Word Star Puzzles

NEW! Word star puzzles are a form of anagram challenge with a difference. If you solve them correctly, you'll draw a star in the middle of the circle - very satisfying! Of course that makes the puzzles especially suitable for children, as, once they've found whether the puzzle starts, will have a hint of which letter comes next. It's finding where the puzzle starts that's tricky!
