  • the numbered puzzle contains numbers in each cell where identical numbers represent identical letters; the goal is to find out which number corresponds to which letter;

  • the fill-in type of puzzle consists of a grid and a list of words; the goal is to place all words in the grid;

  • Sudoku and Kakuro puzzles involve filling in grids of numbers according to their own rules; format may be block-separated, or separated by thick lines.
