  • Cryptic Crosswords

    Guys, today I will seriously tell you about one of my hobbies - a mysterious crossword puzzle. The crossword puzzle, a staple of every British newspaper (even local dailies) and popular throughout the Commonwealth, is becoming something of a lost art. I'm afraid that the new generation with its YouTube channels and its only fans (I don't know what it is) may miss this most serene and intelligent pastime.

    Most people are familiar with the usual crossword puzzle: you answer simple hints and fill the grid with answers. So what is special about the mysterious? Hints!

    Cryptic hints use wordplay devices to hide the answer, and your task as a solver is to think horizontally, enjoy the wordplay and enjoy the "eureka" moment when the answer comes to your mind. While the problem of an ordinary crossword puzzle is only in knowing the little things, a cryptic crossword is a battle of wits between a setter and a solver. In a well-designed puzzle, the answers seem blindingly obvious if you correctly "analyze" their clues.

            I really don't like these kinds of puzzles because I don't know how to solve them."I really don't like these kinds of puzzles because I don't know how to solve them. I prefer more puzzles or word games. Those are some of my favorites! My little sister often gets these games or books, and I seem happier than her when it happens. I really enjoy solving big puzzles. I solve the small ones pretty quickly, but the big ones take a long time and are so much fun. My most giant puzzle was put together from 10,000 pieces. It took me three weeks!
