Crosswords

So, who of you does crosswords? Any good online ones you recommend?

So far I know of the stuff.co.nz crossword in their life & style section. It's good because it actually tells you when you get a word right (word turns green) and has stats on how many letters you get right or wrong, your rank (if you finish the crossword with 5 or less hints) and there's a new crossword every day. I favour their "Web Words Crossword"

Wow, digital crosswords for the new age... almost sounds interesting. I'll check it out. I'm still a fan of the cryptic newspaper ones though, between bouts of COD4 MW2...

I don't mind doing crosswords if they are not too hard and there is a prize for doing it...:)

I'm rubbish at crosswords but my dad is obsessed with them. he comes around with the paper and harrases us until we help him solve them - even though we got him a crossword dictionary for xmas last year. He doesn't have a pc so makes us look up possible answers for him!

I dont think you wud catch me doing crosswords as im no good at them!!

#7

i certainly cannot say i am very good at them, so don't do them very often, but my hubby does and i often help him, two heads better than one theory, they are good for your brain i reckon and it is quite rewarding when you manage to actually finish one in full.

Crosswords are the most enjoyable when there is a nice quiet and relaxing day ahead. Somehow the words just seem to come naturally.Just sayin'
