Clues with fewer letters: Clues that have fewer letters in the answer tend to be easier to solve, so it's a good idea to start with these clues. Famed lyricist Stephen Sondheim (of Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, and A Little Night Music) introduces Americans to the British-style cryptic crossword in New York magazine.

Somewhat ironically, The New York Times complains that crosswords are a “sinful waste” in which solvers “get nothing out of it except a primitive form of mental exercise, and success or failure in any given attempt is equally irrelevant to mental development.” ( The New York Times will later become famous for its top-notch crosswords.) When solving a crossword puzzle, it's often helpful to start with the clues that are easiest to answer. Here are a few types of clues that you might want to consider starting with: Experiment with word associations: If you're having trouble with a clue, try to think of words that are associated with the clue and see if any of them fit.

By starting with these types of clues, you can build momentum and fill in more of the puzzle, which will make it easier to solve the remaining clues. Of course, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to solving crossword puzzles, so feel free to experiment and find the approach that works best for you! The world’s first known crossword puzzle was created by British-born journalist Arthur Wynne and published in the New York World newspaper in 1913. His puzzle featured in the “Fun” section of the paper. Crossword puzzles are ideal for people who love words, general knowledge, and testing their problem-solving skills.

If you’re new to crossword puzzles or looking to try your first crossword puzzle then it’s important to spend a bit of time learning how to play them. In the following years, crossword puzzles grew in popularity and were eventually published in newspapers and magazines all over the world. Over time, the puzzles became more complex and challenging, and variations such as cryptic crosswords and themed crosswords were introduced. Want to become the ultimate crossword puzzle-solver?

For example, the clue might be "Rearrange the letters to find a type of fish" and the answer could be "SALMON."Look for anagrams, where you simply need to rearrange letters to find the answer. For instance, “cash trims” would be “Christmas.” Foreign words: Crossword puzzles can sometimes include clues for words from foreign languages, which can be difficult for people who are not familiar with that language. Anagrams: Crossword clues can sometimes ask for anagrams, which are words formed by rearranging the letters of another word. Anagrams can be difficult to solve, especially if the word is not a common one.
