The history of the the world's favorite word puzzle, alongside 50 example puzzles to solve Forget riddles, conundrums, or that modern usurper Sudoku, the crossword is the original and best word puzzle and it has truly stood the test of time. A decade-by-decade history of the world's favorite word puzzle, this book starts from its beginnings in December 1913 in the New York World newspaper and traces its path to total global domination, with each chapter including puzzles from that era for readers to solve. Next it examines the myriad of different puzzle types, and again provides examples. Following that it discusses different crossword setters, offering their words of wisdom as well as example puzzles. The history concludes with a consideration of future solving and the next 100 years.
Crosswords are not as old as you think. The first one appeared a century ago, the little square keeping in remarkable shape. Cluetopia is here to toast the centenary, whizzing you through 100 years of remarkable clues, across the world, seeking the inside stories. Come travel to New Guinea, Venezuela and Metropolis: every destination arising from a clue. Encounter love, murder, hoaxes, propaganda. Visit a Maori funeral, a Bass Strait oil-rig, a Russian game show-just some of side-trips locked inside a crossword. With almost 100 mini-chapters, each one with a clue to crack, Cluetopia is a book for word lovers and puzzle fans. You'll see how crosswords capture the life around them, from prison cells to outer space. A holiday for the head, Cluetopia is as fun, as wild and as wordy as David's previous bestseller, Puzzled.
The first crossword puzzle appeared 100 years ago, and what better way to celebrate than with 100 puzzles from the nation's top constructors? Grouped by decade, the puzzles range from the sublime--Lindbergh's solo flight across the Atlantic--to the ridiculous--2004's Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction." Aficionados of crosswords and of history alike will delight in this centenary collection of puzzles.
