6 Things All Crossword Solvers Have Experienced

We’ve been playing crosswords puzzles since 1913 and for some of us they’re part of our routine, for some just a way to spend the time while on the bus or train but either way we’ve all experienced these things while trying to solve them.

1. Knowing that the answer you're thinking of is wrong but it's the only one you got so you try to fit it in the grid.


2. When you struggle for hours with a clue and a random friend passes by and immediately knows the answer.


3. When you've only one clue left but can't find it no matter what.


4. When you see people solve their crosswords with pencils instead of pens.


5. The frustration of needing to Google a clue or check it out on Crossword365 — and then realizing you already knew it.


6. The pure joy when you've finished a difficulty level that you never thought you'd be able to.
