How to Play iAssociate 2

Tips Edit

If you’re stuck on a word and you don’t have anymore hints or don’t want to use them, you can figure out the word one letter at a time. Starting with the first letter, try each letter of the alphabet (it helps when you go with the QWERTY keyboard) until you get the word. This trial-and-error method is very tedious but it guarantees completion.

If you’re stuck on a word, do another section of the level. Some levels have more than one starting points too.

If you have Game Center and an internet connection, you can submit your scores and have a chance to earn a speed medal. If you’re among the first 1000 players to complete a level, you’ll be awarded a speed medal and points according to your rank:

• Top 1000 – Bronze medal and 1000 points
• Top 100 – Silver medal and 2500 points
• Top 10 – Gold medal and 5000 points

Playing iAssociate 2 doesn’t require an internet connection, but submitting your scores does.

To buy additional levels, you can either make an in-app purchase with real money or get a free one using tokens. Tokens can be earned by completing free offers, usually by downloading other apps.

Occasionally, you’ll get bonus words––words that are in a golden yellow oval. You can’t use hints on them or use the trial-and-error method above to solve them. Also, be prepared for the one level that consists of all bonus words!

The points system are as follows: 5 points for each correct letter and 250 points for each correct word.

As a last resort, you can use a search engine to look for answers. Many people ask for help on Yahoo! Answers.

Occasionally, TicBit (the game’s developer) may update the game and install additional bonus levels. However you must have a minimum amount of total points (e.g. 500,000) to play them.

The distinctive black and white grid of a crossword is instantly recognised all over the world, so it seems surprising that the puzzle actually has such a short history. In fact the first crosswords only appeared in England during the 19th century. America can claim the first published crossword puzzle, created by journalist Arthur Wynne, for the New York World in 1913.

The appeal of those first crosswords spread quickly, and within a decade the puzzles were featured in almost all American newspapers. Publications in Europe and the rest of the world were quick to adopt the trend, making the crossword the most prolific and popular style of world puzzle on the planet. It is estimated that today, over 40 million people solve a daily crossword in the US alone!

Dedicated fans have not been shy in expressing their love for the crossword. Songs written include ‘Cross Word Puzzle Blues’ and ‘Since Ma’s Gone Crazy over Crossword Puzzles’. Movies, paintings, books and similar creative pursuits have all been inspired by the art of the crossword.

Tournaments and other competitions have sprung up around the world. In London, the inaugural Times Crossword Championship took place in 1970, attracting 20 000 entries. In America, the first Annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament took place in 1978 in Stamford, Connecticut. The film Wordplay (2006) documents this competition, focusing on a fascinating group of elite contestants. It also introduces Will Shortz, the infamous Puzzles Editor for The New York Times. and the only person in history to hold a college degree in enigmatology (the study of puzzles).

In 1982, Robert Turcot of Quebec, Canada created the largest crossword ever constructed. It featured 12,489 clues across and 13,125 down with 82,951 squares to complete on the grid.

Scientific studies have recently shown that the focused mental activity used to solve puzzles can help prevent memory loss and degenerative brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s – another reason to get your daily dose of puzzling fun!
