Welcome to Patchwords.org!

If you're a word-game fanatic looking for something other than crosswords, cryptograms, and the other usual offerings, it's time to try Patchwords! The concept is simple - you're given a set number of horizontal and vertical tiles, and you must drag and drop them into the given patchwork-pattern so that the letters aligned in every contiguous row and column form valid English words. Combine your knowledge of everyday vocabulary with your skills in pattern recognition to solve each puzzle!
