Introduction

Lightwood Games is back again for the second edition of their massive word search puzzle game, Epic Word Search. There are 4 categories to choose from, each with their own 12 "mini puzzles". With hundreds of words to find, you can easily spend hours playing this, but if you're just going for trophies, you only need to complete 4 "mini puzzles" (1 in each section), and then find individual words for the majority of the trophies.


Walkthrough

Step 1: Find all the individual word-related trophies

Each puzzle category has 8 word-related trophies that you need to find within the smaller "mini" puzzles. Their exact locations are provided in the guide below and iBaddriveri's walkthrough is also provided under Considerably Large should you prefer a video to play along to. Make use of the Overview () as this will make jumping to and from each section much easier (and quicker). Don't worry too much about using the hint button, you'll do that next step. After you're done finding all 24 individual words, you will have earned:

Here We Go Again
World Map
Fast Travel
And All That Jazz
Fowl Language
Aaaaaannnnnd Iiiiiiii.....
Pro-Bono
Relish Today. Ketchup Tomorrow.
What a Twist!

A Bit of a Stretch

Buzz Kill
Current Affairs
Are You Pulling My Leg?



Step 2: Complete one section within each category and get the 3 hint-related trophies

You don't need to complete each massive puzzle in full for platinum, you just need to complete one section in each of the 4 categories. As you're completing the sections, make sure you use your hint button often to make it easier on yourself. When you do, you also want to make sure you ignore the hint at least once, then of course use the hint at least once. If you complete all the puzzles in the game before getting these three trophies, you'll need to delete your save file (to reset the puzzles) to get them. After this step, you will have earned:

Sixth Sense
Quest Marker
Side Mission
Star Spangled
Graveyard Smash
What a Scorcher
We Salute You
Considerably Large
