A ditloid uses numerals and initial letters to suggest a phrase, such as 26 L in the A, or 52 W in a Y. Sometimes called an equation analysis test, this type of puzzle was dubbed a ditloid by a newspaper columnist who clued the name of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich (Amazon|Bookshop) as 1 DITLOID. Many more ditloids are included in A.J. Jacobs’ book The Puzzler: One Man’s Quest to Solve the Most Baffling Puzzles Ever, from Crosswords to Jigsaws to the Meaning of Life (Amazon|Bookshop). This is part of a complete episode.
