What is Jumble? Daily Word Puzzle Explained

Jumble is a daily word puzzle released and operated by the Chicago Tribune newspaper. Refreshing daily, each puzzle gives players four words (six on a Sunday) to unscramble. There’s then a cartoon that leaves players with a blank to fill in. It’s usually a pun of some kind, alongside the unscrambling fun the first words bring.

Simply unscramble all four words, entering the correct word underneath. Then move onto the Cartoon Answer and do the same!

Best Ways to Solve

There’s a bunch of ways players can improve at Jumble and speed up their ability to solve the puzzle each day. Below, we’re running through the best tactics to get better at Jumble. Try one, or all, of them!

  • Separate consonants and vowels – Pretty obvious one, but this simple step can make piecing together a scrambled word so much easier since one typically proceeds another or vice versa.
  • Look for common letter pairs – As in any language, there are common letter pairs in English that are found in hundreds of different words. Use this as a starting point. For example, ‘T’ and ‘H’ are obviously found in a vast number of different words. Also, consider that while two instances of the letter ‘O’ or ‘E’ or ‘L’ might be found next to each other in a word, ‘P’ and ‘Y’ probably won’t be.
  • Affixes – Try to spot prefixes and suffixes that are common in the English language. This would include pairings such as ‘auto’ or ‘circum’ or ‘de’ in the case of prefixes, and ‘ey’ or ‘ment’ in the case of a prefix.
  • Start small – Rather than trying to build out a long word to meet the criteria of the Jumble puzzle, start with smaller words and then work your way up. Not only do smaller words often feed into larger ones but moving your letters around into different arrangements also can help open your mind to different possibilities.
  • Last resort – Use a Jumble Solver (technically, it’s not cheating)
