Traditional crossword with a modern twist

Crossword is a puzzle consisting of intersecting rows of cells where words need to be filled in according to the clues. There are various versions of the history of the first crossword's appearance. Nevertheless, its incredible popularity was gained thanks to journalist Arthur Wynne, who began publishing original puzzles in the 'New York World' newspaper in 1913. In a short time, the crossword won the love of an enlightened audience worldwide. Followers in many countries developed this puzzle, incorporating their national traditions. Sudoku, scanwords, chainwords, and others emerged. This type of puzzle is excellent for testing erudition, checking knowledge, or simply for enjoyable leisure. Today, you can solve crosswords not only on paper but also online on a laptop or mobile phone screen. Use the Interacty Crossword Generator and create your unique crossword!
