Add to that puzzles featuring Charades (word clues that break into syllables), Reversals (clues spelled backwards), Deletions (clues where you lop off a letter), Complex Clues (clues that combine these other tricks), and Containers (too fiendish to explain here)--and you'll know why puzzle fans who love a challenge will thank the Mensa geniuses who created them.
