Description

7 Little Words is a puzzle invented in 2011 by Christopher York. Its unique format distills the best elements of crosswords, word finds, and anagram games, and blends them into bite-sized puzzles perfect for short bursts of fun.

Originally conceived as an electronic game for mobile devices, 7 Little Words has been downloaded more than 10,000,000 times by puzzle fans, young and old alike. It reached the #2 position on the iTunes App Store Games chart in the United States and #1 in Australia. It has also received media attention, including a mention in O, The Oprah Magazine.

Following the successful release of 7 Little Words, Blue Ox launched 7 Petits Mots (August 2011) and 7 Palabritas (April 2012) for puzzle fans fluent in French or Spanish. Spanish puzzles are now available in the flagship app, 7 Little Words.

But 7 Little Words is more than an electronic gaming phenomenon. Its simplicity and wide appeal has enabled an easy transition to print. Through a partnership with media syndication leader Universal Uclick, 7 Little Words is now appearing in newspapers across the U.S. including the Miami Herald and the Detroit Free Press. 7 Little Words paperbacks are available from Andrews McMeel Publishing.
