    • find 1 mystery word ... in 16 moves ... 12 moves(May 11 2019) ... 10 moves(May 22 2020)
    • play tiles(like we usually do) to make a word that betty accepts
    • normally, it is best to create crowns on the first few turns
    • for this level, however, go ahead and get a blaster on the first move, if possible
    • if after a few moves it appears that the mystery word is CHEESE ... but there is no 'C' on the board
    • there are 2 options at this point
      1. keep playing until a 'C' appears on the board(not the best idea)
      2. play a crown and a 'C' will usually appear as a gold tile ... if the 'C' is unplayable then play another crown
    • create extra crowns ... some crowns may not provide a gold tile
    • 1240 will get 2 stars ... 1300 3 stars

    • sequence:
      1. betty will show ? ? ? ? ? as a new mystery word
      2. play tiles(like we usually do) to make a word that betty accepts
      3. the tiles you play will populate the ? ? ? ? ? ... when they are present in the mystery word
      4. for example ... DATE ... the ? will be replaced by the letters 'd a t e' that are included in the mystery word
      5. continue until the mystery word is complete(all green)
      6. repeat this for the 2 mystery words for this level
    • GENERAL NOTES FOR MYSTERY LEVELS
    1. Eugene noticed this: ... if the letter you need isn't on the board - play a word with a crown and watch where the crown goes. It will turn a tile into a letter the mystery word needs (and I think it turns it gold too - it seemed to for me)
    2. Jussa noticed this: ... the game does not stop at MAZE and WATER ... if you re-play that level for the third time, you will get a challenging board (possibly with Move Stealers) ... a single Mystery Level will get progressively more difficult the more times you play that level
    3. entanglers prevent that tile from being accepted in the mystery word
    4. blasters may hit letters that are accepted for the mystery word
    • 2 mystery words ... in 11 moves(May 11 2019) ... 10 moves(May 22 2020)
    • 5980 will get 2 stars ... 6130 3 stars
