Crossword Stuff

Consider supporting indie constructors like ada nicolle (luckystreak xwords)…she’s creating great puzzles!

The Boswords 2022 Spring Themeless League registration is open! It’s fun and you can compete as an individual or with someone else. Don’t be worried if you’ve never done this kind of thing before…they’re a most friendly bunch.

I forgot how much I enjoy acrostics and wish there were more available online. When in need, roll my own? Perhaps, thanks to this great video on How to Make an Acrostic Puzzle
