People Are Calling This ‘The World’s Hardest Word Search’—Can You Crack It?


Word searches are a great way to have a little fun while exercising your brain.

If you like word searches and love a good challenge, this particular word search is deemed one of the hardest to crack.

While it may seem simple at first, the tricky part is that there are only three letters repeated throughout the entire word search, making your eyes start to see double and causing all sorts of confusion.

That is, unless you get lucky and quickly come across that hidden “dog.”

The answer to this tricky word search is posted on the next page, but we want you to try it out for yourself first before peeking at the answer.


Some say going through each individual letter until you finally come across the hidden “dog” really works.

And before you think this may be a trick, the two occurrences of the word “dog” written out above and below the puzzle don’t count.
