It is so much fun creating puzzles. I love to think of ways to confuse my friends.

Student 12 years old

I haven't seen word puzzles shown in different shapes. It is really challenging and made me think. I loved solving my daughter's puzzles.

Parent of a 11 year old

I wish we had this game when the lockdown began. Loved the incredible 2 hour engagement from students.

Entertaining game where I can create puzzles, thinking of ways to make it unique and creative, as well as solve some of my friends puzzles

Student 12 years old

The excitement in children when they were trying to solve each others puzzles was incredible. I'm going to be using this a lot even after the pandemic.

Educator After School Center

I love word puzzles. But I am bored with all the puzzles out there. This one I love because I can create my own when I’ve run out of puzzles to solve. I love the challenge of coming up with a unique and interesting puzzle!

1. Aren't wordsearch puzzles suitable only for young children?

Young children definitely enjoy solving simple wordsearch puzzles. Some pentomino based wordsearch puzzles can be quite challenging for adults as well. Creating pentomino based puzzles takes it to another level though. A topical pentomino based puzzle on a 10 x 10 grid is quite an accomplishment.

2. Isn't the restriction of using only 5 letter words limiting?

Constraints breed creativity. Having only 5 letters pushes you to think harder on how to create the topical puzzle, you'd like to create. In fact, some of the most interesting puzzles on breakroom wordsearch are made up of non-5-letter words. And some of them are not made up of words at all :)

3. Can I use it on my iPad / Android tablet?

Yes. Breakroom WordSearch works quite well across all screen resolutions.

4. Does it support multiple languages?

While there is nothing that prevents you from creating puzzles in a different language, we are working on a full-featured multi-language update very soon. In the meantime, if you do create a puzzle in a different language, please let us know. Please email us at - it will help us test our multi-language features and perhaps feature your puzzle.

faq1 faq2
5. Will it be available for PC / Mac / Linux?

This game is built for touch. That said, if there is sufficient interest, we will port it to desktop operating systems. Please email us at if you'd like to see a desktop version. We'd love to know why you prefer a desktop version.

6. We are a public school / school for underprivileged children, do you have any discounts for us?

Absolutely. We are figuring out distribution channels for schools right now. Please contact us here and we will work with you to make sure your students have access to the game.
