This is an entry into the Fortnightly Topic Challenge #36
Jumble® was one of my favorite puzzles growing up. They were quick and fun and relatively easy; they took just long enough to keep me occupied while eating cereal before the school bus came every morning.
Below are eight jumble-style puzzles, each with a picture that may help you to understand each section's respective answer.
The basic rules are these:
- Each puzzle consists of a series of anagrams for you to solve. Please note and respect the no-computers tag.
- The underscores(_) and boxes(⌼) show letter position. The ⌼ is an indicator that the specified letter(s) will be used in the solution of that individual Jumble-style puzzle. This solution will be a caption of sorts for the adjacent picture.
- The eight solutions will be comprised of (2) or (3) words, for a grand total of (18) words.
- The (18) solution words will fit (somehow) into the Final Problem as indicated by the "____" placeholders.
- The final word in the last couplet (indicated with "????") in the Final Problem is the ultimate goal.
Good luck and have fun!
