Product Description:
Once puzzle fans try these cryptic crosswords from The Wall Street Journal, they’ll never return to regular crosswords again!
 
Dedicated puzzle enthusiasts see it too often: ho-hum clues like “Toledo’s lake” for ERIE. That means they need to spice up their solving with the pure puzzling pleasure of cryptic crosswords, where each clue offers double the dose of wordplay. To find the answer, it’s necessary to do additional deciphering—recognizing a homophone or working out a charade. And the cryptics in this collection have something more: not only does each clue contain the extra wordplay, but every puzzle also includes a theme that can bend the rules. Special instructions help solvers find their way through the trickery.

Product Description:
Here for your delight is a brain-bending collection of cryptic crosswords for puzzle mavens who relish this ingeniously addictive mental pastime. Unlike the conventional crossword clue, a cryptic clue contains a straight definition of its answer along with a roundabout description using wordplay – perhaps an anagram, word reversal, homophone or word within a word – cleverly disguised to look like a run-of-the-mill phrase. For example, the answer to “Remote tumbling space rock (6)” would be METEOR, an anagram of “remote” that means “space rock.” Cracking the clue-writer’s code offers mental stimulation far beyond that of the everyday crossword.This update to the original 2012 compendium features an expanded introduction plus dozens of new clues for your entertainment. So grab your pencils, crank up your cranium and enjoy the lexical carnival within!
