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.
Cryptics are addicting!
Cryptic crosswords involve loads of twisted wordplay fun. This app is easier to use than others. Lots of free puzzles to get you started. Answers available if you get stuck. Enjoyable for all the word nerds out there.
Does the job
If you are familiar with cryptic crosswords these are medium mind benders. I am American and most of the questions are translatable. I was
able to finish one while walking the dog. The design is intuitive. Investing the money gives you as many puzzles as a book. Worth the price.
