Crossword Puzzles

A Crossword is a word puzzle, which has the figure of a square or rectangular grid with black and white squares. White squares are used to write letters to form words or phrases and the black ones separate those words. The goal is to solve the clues which lead into the answers.

Based on a clue or definition, you should find a word with a certain number of letters, indicated by the white cells.

The answer will be written horizontally (ACROSS: from left to right), vertically (DOWN: from top to bottom), or inverted if asked.

Horizontal lines are also called ROWS, and vertical ones COLUMNS.

White cells are sometimes called "lights", and the black cells are sometimes called "darks", "blanks" or "blocks".
