Dingbats are visual word puzzles from which a well known phrase or saying has to be identified. They are derived from the board game that was devised by Paul Sellars. Although similar in concept to the puzzles that were used in TV's "Catchphrase", dingbats generally rely on text rather than pictures, the picture style being more correctly known as a "REBUS". The principle is however just the same, or as Roy Walker would have said, "Just Say What You See!!!"
