A Comprehensive Guide to Mastering 7 Little Words

Are you a lover of word puzzles? Then 7 Little Words is the game for you! Combining the best of crosswords, word finds, and anagram games, 7 Little Words is a unique, engaging, and highly addictive game that will provide endless fun. But how do you play it? Let's break it down.

Game Overview: 

In 7 Little Words, your objective is to solve a list of seven word clues using a bank of letter groups, each consisting of 2, 3, or 4 letters. The game is a great test of vocabulary, logical reasoning, and puzzle-solving skills, but it also provides plenty of enjoyment!

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to play:

Step 1: Understanding the Game Layout When you start a new game, you'll be presented with the following:

  • Seven clues, each corresponding to a mystery word
  • A pool of 20 groups of letters at the bottom of the screen Each word that you need to find corresponds to one of the clues provided, and can be constructed using one or more of the given groups of letters.

Step 2: Read the Clues The clues given are very similar to those you might find in a crossword puzzle. They can refer to the meaning of the word, synonyms, or may be more cryptic. Take the time to read all the clues before you start to get a feel for the words you're searching for.

Step 3: Make Your Guesses Based on the clues given, start trying to guess what the words might be. Then, look at the letter groups at the bottom of the screen to see if you can construct your guessed word.

Step 4: Construct the Words To construct a word, simply tap on the letter groups in the order that they would appear in the word. For instance, if you think the answer to the clue is 'SAND', you might tap on the groups 'SAN' and 'D'. The word will appear above the clues to show you've solved it.

Step 5: Check Your Answers If you've correctly guessed a word, it will appear in the corresponding clue's place, the used letter groups will disappear, and you can move on to the next word. If your guess is incorrect, the game will not accept your word, allowing you to try again.

Step 6: Use Hints If Necessary If you're stuck on a clue, don't worry! The game provides you with a certain number of free hints, and you can get more through in-app purchases. You can use a hint to reveal a letter group in the correct word, or to show the position of a specific letter group in the word.

Step 7: Complete the Puzzle The game is completed when you've found all seven words. You can then move on to the next puzzle and continue the fun!


With a mix of deduction, vocabulary skills, and a bit of patience, 7 Little Words can provide hours of entertainment. As you play more, you'll find your skills improving and will enjoy the satisfying challenge it presents. Happy word hunting!
