• Locating cells by coords is a very important feature of a deshword. If you take it out it will be different puzzle.
  • To get a hint you should apply some effort instead of getting it for free.
  • Coordinates of a cell can be given partially if it looks too easy. This is more fun.
  • One can make a mistake when locating a cell by coords then deshword will likely not be solved until it fixed. This adds difficulty.
  • Time spent to get a hint is a penalty time for getting a hint.
  • Deshword can be printed on a sheet of paper. You can't make letters appear by request on a single sheet of paper without tricks.
