Crosswords to Exercise Your Mind
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2001 - Games - 96 pages
What makes a crossword cunning? The 100 puzzles in this collection easily answer that question. First, they use real words--not those, such as "anoa" and "oca," that seem to exist only in crossword puzzle dictionaries. Next, they all have a theme, and at least two answers in each puzzle that relate to each other. And finally, the clues are hard enough to test your crossword savvy, but not so difficult that they leave you screaming in frustration. Of course, answers to all the clues can be found in the back, so that you don't have to wake up nights pondering an 11-letter word for delusions of power--"megalomania"--or a 5-letter word for a Missouri native. So sharpen your pencil--and your mind--and attack these skillfully made, entertaining brain-teasing puzzles. Are you cunning enough to solve them all?
