Rules:

  • The star is from 5 straight lines, each line for 1 word.
  • The 2 double circles have same letter.
  • The 2 dashed circles have same letter.
  • The direction is Top-Down. For horizontal line is Left-Right.
  • Each number in anagram is the letter taken from the crossword.

Crossword clues:

  • Mean "united" in Japanese
  • Kingdoms.
  • Different or unequal
  • Things which are difficult to remove.
  • An amount of money that is returned.

Solve These anagram, all have connection with “PUZZLE”:

  • [11,12,14,16,17,18,20,3,6,10]
  • [10,14,3,7,17]
  • [16,7,17,11]
  • [1,5,6,7,8,10,11,12,19,20]
  • [2,3,4,6,11,12,18,19]

What is the 6-letters-word which describes the anagrams?
(The answer is not PUZZLE)

  • $\begingroup$ +1 The crossword is right. Slant and numberlink is right. others are still wrong. $\endgroup$ – Jamal Senjaya Apr 19 '17 at 7:56
  • $\begingroup$ EARNIKUB is Nurikabe, TLSI is LITS, and I'm not sure what IKTTSUEANN is; it's certainly not an anagram of anything I'm seeing on my numerous lists of Nikoli puzzles. My closest guess is BIJUTSUKAN, which is three letters away. $\endgroup$ – edderiofer Apr 19 '17 at 13:37
  • $\begingroup$ I must say, IKTTSUEANN contains a lot of different possibilities when splitted into two words: ssynth.co.uk/~gay/cgi-bin/… $\endgroup$ – Mike Limburg Apr 19 '17 at 14:45
