I honestly haven't done a crossword puzzle in ages, but the iPhone has gotten me back into word games and I've been wanting to get back into them. The iPad seems like the perfect way to do just that.

Mister Wisdom's Whopper
Back in my younger days there was a "news" magazine here called "The Australasian Post", and in it was a very large, full page crossword called "Mr Wisdom's Whopper", sadly with the demise of the magazine in 2002, I have to sate my crossword fix with the small and paltry offerings of the national and international daily's.

I really enjoy the USA Today crossword puzzle. One, I subscribe to it and two, it's not too difficult. I can usually get through it in 15 minutes or so.

She wears the pants
I grew up watching my Grandmother play the crossword puzzle every single day in her hometown paper (the Daily Olympian), and have a fond place in my heart for a well-crafted crossword puzzle - in fact I've tried my hand at making more than a few of them in my day.
Unfortunately, in this family, while I get to drive, and my vestments have separate holes for each leg, I most certainly do NOT wear the pants; thus, when my wife was presented with the opportunity to approve my request for a 10 dollar crossword puzzle game yesterday (after reading the TiPB review), I was left with no choice but to resign myself to my fate, comforted only that at least she approved the iPad purchase (and, to an extent, by my seeming ability to write whole paragraphs without using more than one sentence).
As I was thus lingering in such a sad disposition, I came across this most wonderful giveaway offer. Now I am once more filled with hope - and you should be encouraged, for Nobel Prizes have been awarded for less.

I usually do the Boston Globe and Washington Post.

The ones in the free Metro are usually what I do.

I haven't done one in a long time but I used to enjoy the crosswords in TV Guide each week.

Wall Street Journal, and my Ocala Star-Banner's puzzle, the source of which I don't know.

I enjoy the Dell Crossword books one finds at the grocery store.

Another one who likes the NYT, and the occasional People magazine.

Another vote for the NYT... I know, how different. But they are the best.

I tend to buy these "250 Puzzles" type books from the discount book shops and then work my way through those. I'm able to do most of them without peeking at the answers. Daily news papers as well. 1st thing in morning is normally a toss up between the daily crossword or Sudoku.

NY Times as well for me. Always a reliable source!

USA Today. Used to like the one in TV Guide before they changed to the large format.

There's no better crossword puzzles than those found in the NY Post. The mix of humor alone makes it my favorite. Where else will you find the answer "WAHAPPEN" to the question "Chinese query." Maybe not PC, but a welcome change to some of the stodgy others. (Many of which I like though.)

Definitely enjoy the NY Times crosswords on Mon and Tues. Then, they start getting harder!!
