An infamous Pandora puzzle! I don't think she'll mind us borrowing this puzzle format for a spell. smile

I’ve used a new-fangled 26-key keyboard to type the names of twelve related words, numbered 1-12 in the red squares. Each digit represents the number of keystrokes used on that key for that word. (Spaces, if any, are not indicated.) Can you decipher the words?

Here's a hint. They're all sports...no really!

Here's another one: #11 actually has two possible answers using the same three letters! :faint:

A few thoughts to get you going again if you're at a standstill.

Logical deduction identifies the locations of letters FGLNOPY and are shown on the original post.

I would look at #8 and #9 due to the repeat letters in both 8 and 9 as well as the known letters in #9.

The knowns for #9 are: FLLOO with three unknowns that are single letters. Two of the unknowns are shared with "volleyball". Compare shares of knowns/unknowns with other solves.

The letter counts for #8 should be a clue to it's answer. It has two L's and two other double letters and is 8 letters long. Three of the unknowns are shared with "volleyball".

Similar logic using word lengths, letter patterns, known letter and unknown letter shares can be used to solve other clues.
