Overview

It's a language lover's delight--a tempting variety of intriguing word puzzles. And almost none has traditional clues, so you won't face those weird words that pop up in everyday crosswords. Go Two by Two to complete mini-grids: all the vowels are already there, but two consonants (repeated as often as necessary) are needed to fill in the blanks. Test your skills on Split Decisions--crosswords where each answer consists of two words that share the letters that belong in the empty squares. The only clues are the letter pairs already printed on the grid. It looks like this: And there are Anagram Loops, Mixagrams, Frazes Its, and other unique inventions. You won't go back to ordinary crosswords again! The author lives in Wantagh, NY. 96 pages, 5 3/8 x 8 1/4.
