Crosswords and puzzles

Do you like doing crosswords and other puzzles? I'm really good at doing anagrams but I don't like wordsearches much.

I like wordsearches and normal crosswords but not cryptic crosswords. My maternal grandmother used to do the Sunday Express crossword every week and even bought all these general knowledge books to help her out. My mum has started doing it now to keep her brain active.

I can't do cryptic crosswords. My parent's friend tried to teach me once and it sort of made sense while he was sat there helping me but made no sense when I attempted the clues by myself.

Wordsearches and Sudoku, even though I sometimes mess up the sudoku puzzle half way though, but I am getting better at Sudoku.

I don't like Sudoku. I can do simple ones but I don't enjoy doing them.

I like doing Wordsearches and Sudoku but I can't do a crossword to save my life, I'm just useless at them. Oh and I love playing Professor Layton, so many good puzzles as well as so many bad one what make you want to throw your DS out the window.

Crosswords and puzzles

Postby jonehogg » Fri Jan 22, 2010 5:04 am

I just love word games, being a linguist and a BIG fan of words.I can never get enough of challenging myself with learning new words or looking up words I do know, but truly understanding what they mean...but I digress.Like you,I do not solve crossword puzzles, though admittedly,I have not really tried.The works pretty good,requires you to install a a program on your computer to create the puzzles which don't even need WP to display.

Not a big fan of wordsearches and crosswords, although I can complete wordsearches and finish about half of an easy crossword. I love Sudoku though, although I sort of cheat because I use a computer to construct the possibility grid. That's my favourite way of doing them, although I use a different technique for programming. I also like minesweeper, which is a similar sort of logic game. Sorry for being so long-winded. :)

I like Sudoku and crosswords. I love to solve problems in math too. But I hate if they force me to solve it within the given time as it stress me a lot and the thought about time will hold me back while I'm doing it. :evil:
