ALPHAMETIC PUZZLE GENERATOR

Paste (or type in) a block of text up to 20 words:
                   

This generator makes alphametic puzzles using lists of up to 20 words.

To generate alphametics, simply paste a text into the input box above and press the button "GENERATE". In less than 2 minutes, the program will list the alphametics it found after testing all possible combinations of the words submitted. The following is a practical exercise of generation of alphametics.


PRACTICAL EXAMPLE

At Beatles Lyrics website we access the lyrics of the song Eleanor Rigby then select and copy the second verse, which is:
     Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been, 
     Lives in a dream. 
     Waits at the window, wearing a face that she keeps in a jar by the door, 
     Who is it for? 
                        
We paste the text in the input box. Now just press the "GENERATE" button and in less than 2 minutes the program shows these six brand new alphametics:
     WEDDING + WEARING = ELEANOR

     WHERE + HAS = RIGBY

     RIGBY + WHERE = CHURCH

     WHERE + WINDOW = CHURCH

     THE + DREAM = WAITS

     WHERE + DREAM = WINDOW
                        
found after testing 3,327 possible word combinations. Every 30 seconds the browser pops up an alert warning message kind of "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue". Just do nothing and it will disappear when the results come down.

For best results, use texts taken from song lyrics, books, blogs, newspapers, magazines, that are formatted in a way that when pasted in the input box produce a single string with spaces between the words. Another way of entering the list of words is just by typing them, one by one, right into the input box.

When you paste a block of text in the input box, don’t bother to count the exact number of words for fear of exceeding the limit of 20 because the program is smart and automatically ignores words that exceed this limit.

Creating good quality alphametics by using generators is not an easy task. Frequently you get no results at all, sometimes 3, 4 even 6 results in a trial, but, unfortunately, over 95% of all the alphametics generated are of poor quality: aesthetically unacceptable, illogical, nonsensical. Nice alphametics that read well, have some meaning and are solvable by hand are rare noble pieces of art.
