ALPHAMETIC PUZZLE GENERATOR
[ Home ]
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
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.
