How to Play Daily Crossword

Start by choosing which date’s crossword you would like to play. The crosswords are archived, so you can play one from earlier in the week if you'd like. After you select a puzzle, start filling in the squares! Read the clues and make your best guesses. If you want, go to the menu in the upper right corner of the Crossword grid to customize your preferences. There, you can control the timer and check the solutions for certain letters, clues, or the whole crossword.
