December 21 is the birthday of the crossword puzzle


Liverpool-based journalist Arthur Wynn was recognized as the inventor of the word game we know today. He created what is believed to be the first known crossword puzzle published. The puzzle appeared in the December 21, 1913 issue of the New York World.

The creator of the first crossword puzzle was journalist Arthur Wynn, who emigrated to New York from Liverpool. He invented a new approach to working with words: he enclosed letters in cells, placed cells in stripes and called the new puzzle "cross-word puzzle".
The author submitted his 32-word crossword puzzle to the New York World, where it was published on December 21, 1913.

Crossword Day on December 21 marks the birth of a challenging word game enjoyed by millions of people around the world.

The first crosswords were published in England in children's books and other publications. These were simple word games formed from squares of words, where the letters were arranged in a square so that the words were read equally across and down.

[font = Impact] The task of the [/ font] crossword puzzle is to fill in the white spaces of the grid with the correct words using the provided hints. Black spaces separate individual words. Hints for more difficult puzzles read like riddles, which complicates the game.

Many are touting the benefits of crosswords. Not only are they fun, but challenging crosswords can help delay the onset of dementia or hone the brain for problem solving. They can also increase vocabulary and even relieve the mind of daytime stress by focusing on other than mundane issues.

    Я пристрастился к разгадыванию кроссвордов и не знал, что у них тоже есть «день». Сейчас, чтобы скоротать время, я предпочитаю логические игры "Найди отличия" на мобильном телефоне. Но даже в этом случае это бывает очень редко.
