Crossword fans! Have we got a treat for you
Our new quick and cryptic crosswords start today, and they're better than ever
“The nice thing about doing a crossword puzzle is, you know there is a solution.” ― Pulitzer Prize winner and lyricist Stephen SondheimOur digital crosswords are here!
Recently, Times Select reader John Baker sent us an email asking: “Where are the puzzles? My daily read is not complete until I have done the crosswords and Sudokus.”
He was one of many readers inquiring about crosswords and today we are proud to announce that Times Select is the first daily digital edition in South Africa to offer its readers online crosswords. We will have two brand new crosswords every day – a quick crossword and a cryptic crossword.
You can choose whether you want to do them on your phone, your desktop, or print them out. The digital versions have some nifty functions, though, such as an option to choose to have the correct word revealed, or perhaps you might just want a letter revealed as a clue. Don’t forget to time yourself by using the digital ticker at the top of the crossword.
Play the first quick crossword here and the cryptic crossword here or scroll down to below our IDEAS section where you will find our new CROSSWORDS section every day.
