What’s the Quiz About?
Missing Letter Blitz is a quiz full of four letter words. Each word has one letter missing and you have to figure out which letter of the alphabet should be there to complete the word. Each letter is used once in this quiz, so there are 26 words to figure out. This quiz is a blitz, which means that you have very little time to complete it. In this case, you have a minute and 30 seconds.
There is a nice mix of easy and challenging words, so one strategy you can use is to cycle through the words once, just getting the words that are obvious to you. This will help in the second cycle, where you have to think a bit more to figure out which letter is correct. Your choices will be narrowed down so when the timer flashes red at 10 seconds and you start frantically clicking, you’ll be more likely to get some answers right.
Missing Letter Blitz was played 31,325 times on the 16th and it has a rating of 4.2.
