Description: Alphametics (also known as alphametrics) are puzzles that combine mathematical and word play, the first modern example of which was Dudeney's SEND + MORE = MONEY. From the "alphamenu," choose traditional alphametics, the doubly-true genre, new literary frontiers, "found" alphametics (three examples from Shakespeare plays), chessametics, alphametic squares, order-n alphametics (in which n uniquely-solvable alphametics are concealed), or recent compositions by the author.
