DID YOU KNOW?

The New York Time’s Digital crossword now has 400,000 subscribers. The paper crossword craze is now brought to the digital world. NYT app subscribers pay $6.95 a month for their access to their daily crossword puzzles. In the first quarter of 2018, The New York Times added over 139,000 subscribers only in their digital platform. The company said that out of all their new subscribers, 40,000 came for digital products like the cooking and their crossword apps. According to the crossword puzzle creator and editor of The New York Times, Will Shortz, crosswords became an American craze in the 1920s, but it took the bombing of Pearl Harbor and NYT publisher Arthur Hays Sulzberger who is a long-time crossword fan, to convince their features editor to agree on running a crossword puzzle every Sundays of the week. 

After seventy-five years, people continue to turn to crosswords for distraction and at the same time comfort because you can’t think of your troubles while solving one. If you want to sharpen your mind and practice your puzzle-solving skills, there are other platforms you can visit or purchase aside from The New York Times. The Guardian, The Washington Post, The Denver Post, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph and Financial Times are listed in The Guardian’s list for the most crossword-friendly newspapers.
