From the answers that I got over here, I found out that the type of puzzle that I was looking for would be referred to as diagramless fill-in puzzle. (A cross of a diagramless crossword and a fill-in puzzle.)

Where can I find such puzzles?

  • $\begingroup$ Would this be solved by presenting you with puzzles that don't have clues at all, and just a bunch of words with an empty grid? $\endgroup$ Mar 4, 2016 at 14:31

Some Penny Press puzzle variety books have one or two of the diagramless fill-in puzzles. I also like them and have a hard time finding them. For the Penny Press puzzles, they have a list of words and only the e's are in the diagram. You have to determine the correct position from that.

Believe it or not, there are two books of Diagramless Fill-Ins (I have both of them myself) that exist. You can purchase both of them on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Diagramless-Fill-Ins-I-Richard-Emmons/dp/0692319476/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1514566514&sr=8-1&keywords=diagramless+fill+in+puzzles

https://www.amazon.com/Diagramless-Fill-Ins-2-Richard-Emmons/dp/0986331228/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1514566514&sr=8-2&keywords=diagramless+fill+in+puzzles

The last puzzle in each book is different (in the first book, it's a diagramless fill-in where you get all the O's instead of all the E's. In the second book, the final puzzle is a diagramless crossword).

    $\begingroup$ I was hoping for some that are freely available online. Still you've provided a link to a whole book of them. Maybe you could improve the answer by adding some information about the books(s) and a picture or two, rather than just links? $\endgroup$
