    • 13 words in 32 moves
    • consider using Mystery Mouse to add one or two crowns to the starting board
    • there are 16 entanglers ... make 4-letter words using entanglers early in the game
    • it is not necessary to play every entangler
    • why make so many 4-letter words? ... each 4-letter word produces a crown
    • why create so many crowns? ... a crown used as part of a word adds to the word's length
    • blasted crowns add to a word's length and most are returned to the board in a new position
    • one approach ... make a 4-letter word every turn
    • for example ... a 4-letter word that includes 2 crowns is accepted as a 6-letter word
    • reminder ... entanglers do not add to a word's length

    • 15 words in 29 moves
    • this example demonstrates one way to handle entanglers(the vines)
    • entanglers do not count add to a word's length
    • at the start ... create 4-letter words that include entanglers near the center of the board
    • why do that? ... to make it easier to form longer words near the center of the board
    • ... and a crown is created for each 4-letter word
    • crowns add to a word's length
    • there are 2 ways to use crowns to add to a word's length
    1. include crowns when forming a word ... example - a 4 letter word become a 6-letter word when 2 crowns are included in the word ... however the crowns are consumed
    2. a better way ... blasted crowns add to a word's length and most are returned to the board in a new position

    🍮 🍮  

    note ... it may be possible to beat this level by making a 4-letter word each turn

    🍮 🍮  

    29 we can see several 4 letter words on the starting board ... SUNS GOOD RAVE SEND

    28 27 ... five entanglers are removed

    26 ... three entanglers are removed ... 25 one crown is consumed while getting credit for a 7-letter word

    24 one crown is blasted making BOARS a 6-letter word

    22 21 ... the center of the board is cleared of entanglers ... it is easier to find longer words now

    20 a crown is blasted making HEDGE a 6-letter word

    17 ... HOUNDS ... do not be afraid to make longer words when only 4-letter words are required

    16 ... another longer word accepted as a 4-letter word

    14 13 ... more of the same

    12 11 ... the final two words
