Crossword puzzles


You can solve the clues in any order. Click or tap on either a clue or a box in the grid to start entering an answer. You can also use the arrow keys, enter/shift-enter or, tab/shift-tab to move around the grid. The clues for words that have been entirely filled in are marked gray, whether the answer is correct or not.
You get 10 points for each correct word completed. Revealing letters or words will cost you points. For each square you reveal, you lose 1 point(s), but you can still get the 10 points if you get the word right. You get no points for a word if you reveal it entirely. The target time to complete this puzzle is 15 minutes. When you complete the puzzle, you will get a bonus of 15 points for every full minute under the target. There is no penalty for going over the time limit.
To verify that you’ve entered the correct letters, click Check at the top of the puzzle. You can verify a single letter, a word or the entire grid. Incorrect letters will be shown in red until they are overwritten.
Error check mode
If you want to know whether you’ve typed incorrect entries, use the Error Check mode. You can find it under Settings at the top right of the puzzle. When this option is turned on, incorrect clues are marked in red and incorrect entries are marked in red.
Use the Clear option to reset the entire grid. The empty grid will be displayed and the clock will be set back to zero.
Use the Print menu to print the empty puzzle, the grid with the letters filled in so far, or the grid with the entire solution. Option to print the solution is not available for contest mode puzzles.
