Welcome To Hanging Hyena

Welcome to Hanging Hyena, your best choice for word makers, word game solvers, cryptography tools, puzzles, and study helpers. This site began as a small collection of Python scripts several years ago, starting with a hangman solver and word descrambler. Over time, we added more solvers - tools to unscramble words, calculate scrabble points, figure out boggle, and match patterns. We even created tools to help with newspaper puzzles, a jumble solver.

But we're more than word jumble solvers! In addition to our tools to unscramble words, we also built a collection of cipher decoders for pen and paper cryptography. If you're wondering where to start, take a look at our Guide To Classical Cryptography. The collection includes everything from basic substitution cipher tools to transposition ciphers.

Naturally, once we started writing word game solvers we wanted to try writing word games of our own! Our first game was a cryptogram puzzle, which challenges you to solve a substition cipher. You can play it on either easy or hard mode. Our second game asks you to unscramble words (no peeking at the word descrambler!). It comes in a couple of versions, including a daily news puzzle where you figure out words from the top headlines of the day. Want to make your own printable puzzles? Got you covered there! Check out our puzzle maker section - we've got tools for crosswords, word scrambles, word searches, and cryptograms.

At the top of this page, you see our word maker. Simply enter your letters and it will unscramble the words you can make from them. And because customer service is job #1, we built backup sites - one for the jumble solver, another for the word unscrambler, and a third one for scrabble. Even an anagram maker Need points for scrabble? Try the scrabble helper. We've got a words with friends version as well. Trying to solve a puzzle that doesn't require you to unscramble a word? No worries, we've got tools to pattern match (hangman) and search word grids.
