Solving Twisto puzzles can be a challenge and that's part of what makes the game so great!

To help you out, you can sometimes find solutions describing how to get to a certain point or solve the entire puzzle. These solutions may look like this:

a1b2-a-1

What do these numbers and letters mean?

## Deciphering Solution Codes

Let's say that you get a challenge that looks like this:

This is the board for code 446 (codeword test) on difficulty 2. One solution code for this challenge is "-2-C".

To solve the board using the code, let's first imagine the board as columns and rows, with the columns named A, B, C, and so on, and the rows numbered 1 through 9.

To solve the board using the code, let's first imagine the board as columns and rows, with the columns named A, B, C, and so on, and the rows numbered 1 through 9.

The letters and numbers tell you which column or row should move so if you find a solution that just says "A" it means "Move column A down". If you find the number 1, it means "Move the first column right"

The first part of the solution code for this board is the number -2. When you encounter a minus in a solution, you need to combine it with the next letter or number. In this case, the first part becomes -2, which means that you should move the second row left instead of right. Doing so will lead you to this board:

The first part of the solution code for this board is the number -2. When you encounter a minus in a solution, you need to combine it with the next letter or number. In this case, the first part becomes -2, which means that you should move the second row left instead of right. Doing so will lead you to this board:

You could have achieved the same result by moving the second row twice to the right, but it would take two moves rather than just one. If so, you would instead have used 22 as the code, to indicate that you need to move the second row right and to do so twice.

The next part of the solution is -C (minus C). This means that you should move the C-row up, which in this case solves the board:

The next part of the solution is -C (minus C). This means that you should move the C-row up, which in this case solves the board:

Again, you could also have moved the column twice down, in which case the solution would be CC rather than -C, but it would take two moves rather than just one.

Letters without minus means "Move Column Down" and letters preceded by minus means "Move Column Up". Similarly, numbers without minus means "Move Row Right" whereas letters with a minus means "Move Row Left".

Letters without minus means "Move Column Down" and letters preceded by minus means "Move Column Up". Similarly, numbers without minus means "Move Row Right" whereas letters with a minus means "Move Row Left".

## Summary

Now that you know how to "speak" Twisto, you can discuss solutions with your friends or share solutions, whether partial or full.
