Looking Forward ... to More Puzzles
Yesterday was the 100th Anniversary of Arthur Wynne's first crossword puzzle. We very seriously considered making that one of the holidays for the Year of Puzzles. Ultimately, we decided there was quite enough going on. But, we're giving everybody not one, but two, special puzzles to commemorate the day, one each by Roy Leban and Parker Lewis. You'll find them in our Crossword Centenary Roundup, along with a number of other similar puzzles, links to tribute puzzles around the web, plus links to articles, videos, interviews, and even a poem inspired by the crossword's birthday.
While the crossword's birthday was big news yesterday, today's news is about the future. Puzzazz continues to lead the way in the future of puzzles in the digital world, with our powerful puzzle engine and our exclusive TouchWrite technology. We're still the only app, on any digital platform, where you can solve the print edition of every daily New York Times crossword.
Today, we're excited to announce the release of Connect-the-Dots Crosswords by Elizabeth C. Gorski, a fun collection of 10 new Sunday-size crosswords with an extra element, a connect-the-dots puzzle after you've filled it in. See if you can guess what it is before you reveal it. And, if that's not quite enough, you'll find the connecting lines float above the grid just a little bit for a really nice effect.
You'll find Connect-the-Dots Crosswords in the Featured Books section in Puzzazz.
Finally, although we didn't make yesterday a holiday, it is the holiday season, and we'll be celebrating the next puzzle in the Year of Puzzles right around the New Year.
Hope your holidays are good ones.
