What type of puzzles are available?

Crosswords

The traditional crosswords you know and love, including mini crosswords and arrow crosswords.

Video puzzles

In these online puzzles there are video clues. Click on each video to get the clue to solve the answers. Each puzzle has a unique theme.

Codebreakers
Codebreakers are like crosswords but without clues. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by the same number throughout a codebreaker. For example, 2 could be D or 12 could be S. Use the given clues in each one to work out the matching letters and numbers and finish the puzzle.

Sudoku

These number puzzles are quite simple. Place the numbers 1 to 9 in the empty squares so that the same number appears only once in each row, each column and each 3×3 box.

Word search

Look for the words that could run vertically, horizontally, diagonally and backwards. Just click on the words you spot to highlight them. Each puzzle has a unique theme.

How long do I have to complete the puzzles?

There’s no time limit after you’ve registered and paid. You’ll receive a username and password, which allows you to access your puzzles. Your profile won’t expire and you can complete the puzzles at your own pace (although if you’re as much a puzzle fan as we are, you’ll race through them!).

Can I go back to certain puzzles?

Yes, you can play each puzzle as many times as you’d like. If you like to compete with yourself, perhaps try beating your previous time.
