Only some geniuses know every answer to medium or hard crossword puzzles. My grandfather was very good at crossword puzzles, but then again he practiced almost every day.
The rest of us need to use crossword puzzle strategies to have any hope of completing most (or even all!) of a particular crossword.
One obvious strategy, and a strategy I use every time, is to go through the list of hints and fill in the easy answers first.
On a difficult puzzle, such as a crossword from the New York Times, there might not be any easy ones. But you have to start somewhere.
Gotta run, but I'll add more crossword strategies to this page soon.
I hope you enjoy this daily crossword. Solve a puzzle a day to keep your brain sharp!
