National Puzzle Day Puzzle Hunt: Step 1!
To complete this leg of the puzzle hunt, you’ll need to solve today’s Daily POP Crosswords App free daily puzzle.
Once you’ve solved it, keep the grid handy, because we’re going to test your anagram skills! Ready? Here we go!
Add and subtract letters from the Grid Words to form answers to the Clues. Start with the first Grid Word, subtract 2 letters, and rearrange the remaining letters to form the answer to the first Clue.
Carry over the letters you subtracted to the blanks on the next line. Now add them to the second Grid Word, subtract the number of letters indicated, and rearrange the remaining letters to form the second answer. Continue solving this way until you’re left with your final answer.
Once you’ve completed the puzzle, take your answer word (all lowercase) and plug it into the blank in this web address: https://blog.puzzlenation.com/npd-________.
If you’ve solved the puzzle correctly, that completed link will take you to the next part of the Puzzle Hunt!
[Note: remember to keep track of those answer words/grid words with red asterisks next to them! You’ll need them later!]
