Group Description

Games in which the player must fill in the words in a play grid according to the clues provided, which are either written clues or letters that have been filled in by guessing other words.

This group does not include Scrabble licensees or crossword-based variants of the game.


Arthur Wynne, from Liverpool, England, created, what many consider, the first modern crossword puzzle. It was published in the New York World newspaper on December 21, 1913. It was called "Word-Cross". A few weeks later, due to a typesetting error, the name became "Cross-Word". [Source: Wikipedia]
