What is a Fill-In Puzzle?

A fill-in puzzle is similar to a crossword puzzle, but instead of clues, you are given the words – to fill in or fit in the available spaces.

The words are grouped by the amount of letters they contain. So a 9 letter word will need to be placed in a word box that holds 9 letters.

Even tho there could be multiple 9 letter words, they can’t just be placed in any available spot. The challenge is choosing which word goes in which place, so that all the words will fit in the puzzle.
