Holiday Word Search Contest!

11 replies (last post)

Ho-Ho-Ho, PuzzleNation Members!

Here's a fun little contest to help you celebrate the season!

Below you'll see links to 3 holiday-themed word search puzzles. Solve ALL 3 puzzles anytime between now and midnight on January 4. If your total combined score for all 3 is the highest, we'll send you a free PuzzleNation gift membership for a friend!

Click any link when you're ready to solve:

12 Days of Christmas
Bedeck the Halls!
Miracle on 34th Street

(Jan 5 update: The contest is now over and these links are no longer active.)

Some things to know:

Your final score for each individual puzzle will be added to your regular 1-Player Top Solvers tally for Classic Word Search. Top-10 scores on each puzzle will post to the News of the Nation, as usual. We'll keep an eye on the contest and will post occasional shout-outs re the standings for total combined score in this forum. (Don't worry, we won't share your username or score if you have indicated we shouldn't on your Preferences page — but you're still eligible to win.)

You may also solve any of the puzzles in Casual mode. If you choose to save and finish a puzzle later, just resume the puzzle from your in-progress list on the Classic Word Search START page (these forum links are only for starting the puzzles). Casual solves are not scored and thus are ineligible to win the contest.

This forum will be open for comments from all. Feel free to share your own thoughts or holiday sentiments as the contest goes on.

Have fun and good luck! Happy Holidays to all from the PuzzleNation team!

So, the gauntlet has been thrown down. This Christmas, my present will be VICTORY!

...and we're off and running, with TomServo1 serving up an amazing combined score of 22,582 on our 3 holiday word searches!!

This puts TomServo1 in the lead, inching him ahead of JangerNPL, who posted an almost-as-amazing score of 22,566!

Ouch, so close! Who will beat TomServo1?

Current standings in our contest:

1. TomServo1: 22,582

Busy, busy week—trimming the tree, wrapping the gifts, baking the cookies—but it only requires a few minutes apiece to solve our 3 holiday puzzles and to grab 1st place...why not give it a shot, word search buffs? You've earned some PLAYtime!

A little shake-up in our Top 5 as buttercup moves into 4th, bumping nederland down to 5th!
