Word squares have been around for literally thousands of years (the oldest known example has been found in ruins across the Roman Empire, including the walls of Pompeii). Each word square is a group of words, all of the same length, arranged so the word in row one is the same as that in column one; row two the same as column two; and so forth. Easy word squares are four-by-four; much harder are eight-by-eights; given a few letter clues, the goal is to fill a perfect word square. In this book, puzzle master Alastair Chisholm has produced 201 brainteasers--from Delicious to Vicious--that will stretch your vocabulary and challenge your puzzle solving skills.
