The gold standard in crossword puzzles, for every day of the year.

Written by the best cruciverbalists in the business and edited by puzzlemaster Will Shortz, the crosswords are known to challenge and delight solvers. You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment when you solve each puzzle—they’re easier on Mondays so you can work up to the harder puzzles. The array of themes keeps each day fresh, and if you get stuck, you’ll find the solution on the reverse of each page.
