Setka

How to Play

1. The goal is to solve clues to complete a grid using Puzzle Letters that do not repeat in a row or column. The Puzzle Letters come from the Puzzle Theme, minus vowels and duplicate letters.

Example 
Puzzle Theme: Learning
Puzzle Letters: L, R, N, G (no E, A or I; only one N)


The completed grid could look like this:

Setka directions - Learning grid

2. The box numbers correspond to clue answers. Clue answers are based on the Puzzle Theme and consist only of Puzzle Letters and vowels.

Example 
Clue 1: Size of pizza you want while studying for finals.
Answer: LARGE

3. Only Puzzle Letters are entered in the grid; vowels and duplicate letters are discarded.

Nix the ā€œAā€ and ā€œEā€ in LARGE. L, R, and G — in some order, see below! — will go into boxes numbered 1 in the grid.

4. Puzzle Letters can be entered forward/backward, up/down, or L-shape. No jumbling!

For LARGE (LRG), the order is LRG or GRL, and the middle letter is R.

5. Need help? Check out the Setka+ version of each game, where + (plus) signs mark the grid boxes that correspond to the first letters of clue answers.

ShamelessSetka

What is ShamelessSetka?  It is a hastily written Setka about a celebrity who purportedly likes puzzles (we have to like the celebrity as well), or that otherwise is about a trendy and wafer-thin theme. Perhaps this celebrity’s people’s people will read our puzzle and tell their millions of adoring fans to check out Setka.

ShamelessSetka follows the exact same rules as Setka, but the clues may be a little clunky and don’t be sheepish if you look stuff up because we do!
