Word Searches for Dad
My dad Perry is really into word searches. I decided to build a website for him called perryspuzzles.com. We are both happy with the result. 32 different categories with puzzles like The Empire Strikes Back, Better Call Saul, and one dedicated to my friends at metafilter. If the puzzles aren't hard enough, you can always enter into ludicrous mode. If 5000+ puzzles isn't enough, you can make your own and share it with your puzzle loving friends. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and I hope you enjoy.

This is fun! I did turn off the hints, because it made it easier to mark the word but it also sometimes revealed a word that I hadn't seen yet. Much enjoyed

This is cool! I started in the hard section, unwittingly, but was happy to find I could solve them so far. I like the categories, a finite set of words to search for. I was 3 puzzles in before I realized how to make the "found" words highlight -- but glad that, and the graying out of search words, is a function. Kept me from searching for words I had already found -- ah, the little gray cells, sometimes they don't fire like they used to.

Also glad you omitted a ticking clock. So intimidating!

Very pleasantly designed, I like the swirling letters filling the screen to start the puzzle. And 5,000? Great job!
