    ABC Path Help Rules / Objectives Summary

• Enter every letter from A to Y into the grid.
• Each letter is next to the previous letter either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
• The clues around the edge tell you which row, column or diagonal each letter is in.

See the Walkthrough for extra tips and tricks. What are the letters around the edge for?These tell you which letters are in those rows, columns and diagonals.Move your mouse over the puzzle to see the answer.  Walkthrough  Step 1This is the start of the puzzle.Solve this puzzle for yourself at the same time.  Step 2These are the 2 possible squares for the B, as it must be in the 5th column.  Step 3Wherever the B is, this is the only square the C can go.  Step 4The D must now be in one of these two squares.  Step 5And now the fun starts! The E can be in any of these squares depending on which D is correct, but at the moment we don't yet know.  Step 6The F can now be in any one of these squares.  Step 7The G must be on the bottom row.  Step 8Now we know that the G is on the bottom row, we can't have the F up here, so we can actually trace this back to the B in Step 2 - which allows us to remove everything but the B (as we're not yet sure which route ABC takes).  Step 9There is only one valid path through these squares, and this completes the bottom corner.Trying to use the B in the top section would leave a gap in the bottom section that could never be reached by another letter.  Step 10The completed corner.This technique can be continued around the rest of the grid.There are lots of simplifications that can be made as the puzzle develops. For example on Step 6 the E couldn't be directly above the A as this is where the B would have to be.
