Crossword Nation. Over 50 million people, and counting. That’s how many Americans solve crosswords each week.* In the 19 years since my first puzzle was published, I’ve been privileged to correspond with many of those solvers: You, the Problem Solver. I salute you!
I believe that solving crosswords — micro-solving — empowers us with skills to face life’s challenges.
Because when you’re a Problem Solver . . .
Your boss wants to hire 100 people just like you
You’re the better student (the better cook, tennis player . . . fill in the blank)
You empower your children, by example, with problem-solving skills they will use for a lifetime
You improve your community by being the solution, not the problem
You are mentally vibrant and proactive every day of your life
Whether you’re a top speed solver who knocks off a Sunday puzzle in minutes; or an I’ll-take-my-sweet-time crossword solver (like me!) — solving any problem is just plain good sense.
If you’re interested in solving a new type of early-in-the-week puzzle, please join our Crossword Nation family by subscribing to our weekly puzzle. You’ll receive a sparkling, brand-new puzzle every Tuesday. It’s fun, accessible and sure to make you smile!
