Bizarre Crossword Variants

Other Format(Spiral Bound - Reissue)



These puzzles are crazy . . . fun!  Though they seem like crosswords, what with the clues and grids, they're really in a class all their own. Each one has its own bizarre variant: answers twist and turn, grids are arranged in Escher-like configurations or wrapped around a cube, or there may even be TWO sets of clues for a pair of identical grids. Think you're up to the challenge? This hefty book, with over 150 puzzles, is perfect for crossword lovers in search of something new.
