The D&G Emoji Place-Name Puzzle: Answers


➡️Click here for the puzzle⬅️

Here are the answers to the D&G Emoji Place-Name Puzzle. The answers are in emojis too. They come in five levels of difficulty, ranging from alphabetic to hieroglyphic. There’s a guide to hieroglyphic writing and activity ideas at the end of the Level 1 Answer Sheet. Use this one if you just want the answers to the puzzle; try Level 5 if you fancy the full emoji-hieroglyph experience. You can try these independently of the Place-Name Puzzle.

5️⃣ ➡️Answers: Fully Hieroglyphic⬅️

Here’s how Kirkcolm (not in the puzzle) would look at each level:
1️⃣ Each letter of the alphabet replaced with an emoji
2️⃣ As above but with no vowels
3️⃣ As above + emojis for groups of 2 or 3 consonants like 🦌 for ‘dr’ and 🐊 for ‘krk’
4️⃣ As above but with phonetic spelling
5️⃣ As above but with consonant groups spelled out, like 🐊🚣‍♀️🔑 for ‘krk’, and determinatives that give extra information about each place, like 🏘️for ‘village’ and 🚜 for ‘farm’. No spaces between words. Text direction sometimes ➡️ and sometimes ⬅️. About as close to hieroglyphic writing as possible.
