You may be familiar with the board game Schmovie or hashtag games on Twitter.
For years now, we’ve been collaborating on puzzle-themed hashtag games with our pals at Penny Dell Puzzles, and this month’s hook was #PennyDellPuzzlePoetry. Today’s entries all mash up Penny Dell puzzles with famous poets, verses, titles, poetry styles, and more things associated with the world of poetry!
Examples include: Langston Hughes Calling?, The Crossroads Not Taken, and “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s Daisy?”
So, without further ado, check out what the puzzlers at PuzzleNation and Penny Dell Puzzles came up with!
Maya Right Angelou
John Keats It Moving
Wallace Odds and Stevens
Codewords on a Grecian Urn
The Spider’s Web and the Fly
As the Rhyme Time Draws Nigh

It’s hard to keep this
many puzzles in order.
Take your Places, Please!
Letterboxes, Brick by Brick
The sharpest pencil
Two angry puzzlers
often traded Sudokus
and exchanged cross words.
Famous Puzzly Verses!
I think that I shall never see, a puzzle lovely as These Three.
There is no frigate like a variety puzzle book-
to take us lands away…
Quoth the Raven “Superscore.”
For he on Honeycomb-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Pairsadise.
Who made the Crossword?
Who made the Word Seek and the Fill-in?
It came without Fill-Ins. It came without mags.
It came without Patchwords, Letterboxes or Mixed Bag.
2-B or B-2, you sunk my Battleships.
Made thirty-one copies, but I’m solving in pen
so it’s back to the printer again and again.
Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star, how I wonder where You Know the Odds are,
Match-Up above the Whirly-Words so high, like a Diamond Mine in the sky,
Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star, How many Triangles I wonder where you are
One intrepid puzzler even reimagined Edgar Allan Poe’s classic work “The Raven” with a puzzly perspective, complete with art! Check it out!
Members of the PuzzleNation readership also got in on the fun when we spread the word about this hashtag game online!
Twitter user @pauliscool1927 immediately leapt at the opportunity, offering the delightful riff, “A dog with a muzzle solves a puzzle?” which feels like both a short rhyming piece and a crossword clue.
