Ratings and Reviews
Challenging, not frustrating
These aren't the hardest cryptic crosswords I've encountered, but they are challenging enough to provide some good mental exercise. Rated 4 stars rather than 5 because I would love if there were some harder puzzles available.
Please make more!
This is my latest addiction, and when the puzzles run out I will be devastated! Please bring out another one!
The problem with these Cryptic Crosswords is that they're going to run out and I'll be bereft. Teazel generously gives you 18 free puzzles (took in each of nine sets) and for some very low purchase price opens all of them, which is approximately 180 puzzles. It's actually a bit more because there one or two sets that have an extra game.
If you're a cryptic fan like I am, this is a feast of puzzles. I tried to hold myself to one —or maybe just two — puzzles per day but I ended up like a kid in the cookie jar, unable to resist.
There is an option to erase an entire puzzle but I'd really love the option to erase them all in one "swell foop" so I can do them over again. Even better would be to have a new set of cryptic puzzles, but if Teazel won't provide new those, I'll try their regular crosswords to see if they also present a pleasurable challenge.
One caveat for those of us in the States, it helps if you quite a bit of British slang (or can find a translation dictionary) but since it seems the Brits produce lots of good cryotics.
