Crossword Puzzles

Crossword puzzles first appeared in the mid- to late-19th Century. While the earliest examples were simple constructs aimed at children, the puzzles soon evolved into a more complex adult pastime.

In 1913, an English journalist named Arthur Wynne published what many regard as the very first “word-cross puzzle” as he called it, in an issue of the newspaper the New York World. It was an instant hit and the puzzles soon became a daily fixture of the paper.

More than a century later, crosswords have never been more popular.
