It’s time to celebrate and play crossword puzzles!

Crossword puzzles are easily one of the most popular word games in the world. It only took a few centuries from the development of the English language to form this new game. It was during the 19th Century that the first and primitive form of the crossword puzzle emerged in England. The simplicity and elegance of the game helped it gain popularity. The game was initially known as “Word-cross.” The new name is a result of a typo error when it was first published in the New York World.
