What do you get when you mix a crossword and a cryptogram? Cross Codes, of course!
These super puzzles have grids that look like a crossword but with small numbers from 1 to 26 in every square. Those numbers are your starting point: you’re told what letters a few of them represent. Using logic and knowledge of word patterns, solvers will begin to meticulously crack the code, figuring out which letter goes with what number, and filling in the grid with everyday words. Keep in mind that each puzzle uses every single letter in the alphabet. But beware: no proper nouns, abbreviations, or foreign words allowed!

This game is awesome! I love love love it! It took only 3 puzzles to get me hooked. In my opinion, it is better than Suduko and I was hooked on it. My daughter introduced me to Suduko, and I get sorto anxious when I can't get a book. But this game book is even more dear to me. I love it. Can't find it in my local SuperMarket. Please Please Please put it there. I live in NJ East Orange. Shop Rite, Stop & Shop. My sister bought this book for me and wanted me to explain it to her after I learned. I did and she said she will look for it. Is it in B & N? People u gotta try it.
