Consider long-term delivery of a solution, the puzzle mastery is celebrating a milestone. The use of word play educating and providing block by block letter filled joy for many is something to celebrate. The news of the “100 years of crosswords: the first appeared in New York on 21.12.1913” is truly a historical revelation on words.
“Devotees of all kinds of crossword (cruciverbalists, some people coyly call them) will today be saluting the memory of a Liverpool man who emigrated to the United States, abandoned onion farming for journalism, became editor of the New York World, and on 21 December 21, 1913 filled a spare space in his paper with a device that he called a word cross, thus ensuring his name would be honoured today as the inventor of crosswords,” reports The Guardian.
100 year anniversary of the New York Times crossword is a legacy of pedantic mind puzzles that frame the building blocks of words that stump or bring kudos to the Sunday connoisseurs.
