A wild crossword variant with words going in eight different directions! Why solve regular crosswords when Octopus puzzles (known to some as “Helter-Skelters”) are eight times more fun? This crazy variant features 8x8 grids with words running in any of eight different directions, and no black squares to tell you where words end. Start at square 1, write the answer so it goes toward square 2, and see where it takes you. Warning: it might go past the next number. Puzzle fans will really have their tentacles full solving these!
