On this day: annual celebration of grid-based word puzzles (9,3)
Sunday, 21st December 2014 by Ian Brown
That’s right – today is Crossword Day! Whether you prefer cryptic, quick, diagramless, or the countless other variations, it’s a day to celebrate crosswords in all their forms.
You’ll need a really big pen (oh, and a knowledge of the Cyrillic alphabet) to complete the world’s largest crossword puzzle, which is found on the side of a 30m-tall building in Lviv, Ukraine. Clues are found throughout the city at important landmarks such as museums and monuments. Once you think you have solved all the clues you can visit the building at night when the answers appear in fluorescent paint.
