The World's Most Ornery Crossword was invented by Games magazine in 1977, and it is now the most popular pencil puzzle feature in America's most popular puzzle publication.
What is an Ornery Crossword? It is a very large crossword with two sets of clues, one very hard and one easy. This book is designed with sixteen gatefolds so that you can fold one set of clues or the other to face the grid. If you use only the Hard Clues, the puzzle will be uncommonly challenging. If you want help or a less rigorous outing, refold the page to look at the Easy Clues. To peek or not to peek is up to you.
