Image: The Curious History of the Crossword: 100 Puzzles from Then and Now, by Ben Tausig (Author). Publisher: Race Point Publishing; Csm edition (November 27, 2013)
Curious History of the Crossword
National Puzzle Day
-- Honors puzzles of all size, shape, and form. Crossword puzzles are by far the most common. Sudoku, a number puzzle, is the most recent puzzle rage. There are easy puzzles, and there are puzzles for experts. They fit the needs of every person and every skill level. Studies have found when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we use both sides of the brain, and spending time daily working on puzzles improves memory, cognitive function, and problem-solving skills.

Read: The Curious History of the Crossword: 100 Puzzles from Then and Now
-- Journalist Arthur Wynne had wanted to devise a new game for the back of the newspaper back in 1913, so he created a diamond grid and called it a Word-Cross, and thus the first crossword puzzle was born. Editor and crossword constructor Ben Tausig examines the curious history of the world's most addictive game and its unusual upbringing. Accompanied by 100 unique and challenging puzzles from the past 100 years, he examines the evolution of grid shape, how basic expected knowledge of the reader has changed, the puzzles which break the breakfast table rule and more. Featuring puzzles from top constructors like Will Shortz, Brendan Emmett Quigley, Matt Jones, Cathy Millhauser, Maura Jacobson, and more.
