About this site

2013 is the centenary of the crossword.

I will be dedicating 2013 to the promotion of the crossword across the world.

And it’s all going to happen here.

We’ll be sharing great crosswords from the last hundred years, unusual and funny crossword stories, we’ll be talking about the characters and personalities that make up crosswords such as the world’s greatest puzzle setters and their editors, the celebrity solvers, we’ll have interviews with puzzle champions and we’ll be discussing what you love about crosswords, and about words – what delights, and what infuriates you?!

You can come here for help in solving a clue, and share your favourite clues and your favourite words.

You get to solve some of the great crosswords of the last century, marvel at some of the most ingenious puzzles, and slap your hand to your forehead at some of the most glaring errors ever made!

There will be competitions and prizes, and you’ll get to meet some of the faces behind the crossword over the last century.

But most of all, we’ll be winding back the clock and solving the clues from our past, and from those years that meant so much to us.

  1. This could be seen as a cheeky bit of marketing, but I thought puzzlers with children might be interested in a wee book ‘Very Puzzling’ by Heather Woodgate (me). It’s about two children and their old auntie who are plunged into an adventure when they discover magic crosswords, and although the adventure is the main point, it hopefully has the potential to get kids interested in words and puzzles. It’s available on Amazon in paperback and on Kindle. Thanks!

  2. Nice job promoting this puzzling thing with chequered boxes. I’m planning to do the same here in Nigeria. All the best.
