Crossword Puzzles - An amiable gathering of word-type people trying to solve word puzzles together.
Please read the Discussion Board Rules before participating in the discussion boards.
A board to solve crosswords - both cryptic and straight, UK style grids.
Crosswords will be solved clue-by-clue, with the solver choosing which clue comes next.
There is a mixture of themed crosswords of different sizes. If you have any suggestions for any themed crosswords you would like to solve, please post on the board or send a message to HeatherN who will compile all the crosswords.
Crossword tokens will be awarded to the top three solvers for each crossword. The solvers are to be recorded on a "Solvers' tally" for each crossword."
Bonus Mystery Words
All crosswords of 13X13 or larger, starting from when the first “Names” crossword started (not sure when that was) will feature (usually) three mystery words.
The letters will appear on the grid in three different colours, and when all the letters of one colour have appeared, you can unscramble the letters to guess the mystery word, whether or not you are guessing a clue as well.
Please do not try and guess the mystery word before all the stated number of letters of that colour have appeared, even if you are certain you know what the word will be. If you do, you will be disqualified from guessing when all of the letters are present.
If you get the word correct – you will get an extra point on the Solvers’ Tally.
All three words in any one crossword will have the same number of letters, the number of which I shall state in the blurb for that particular crossword, and I will also state what the three colours are.
For 13X13 crosswords the words will be either 3 or 4 letters’ long; for 15X15 crosswords the words will be 5 or 6 letters’ long; for 17X17 crosswords, the words will be either 7 or 8 letters' long.
If it is a themed crossword, the words will be related to the theme. If it is a themeless crossword, the words will be related to each other.
The 11X11 crosswords, for example “Pictures”, “Goldies” and the current “Animals” puzzle will not incorporate the Bonus Mystery Words feature.
