The invention of the crossword puzzle is credited to Arthur Wynne, a journalist from Liverpool who published the puzzle in the newspaper New York World on December 21, 1913. Earlier variants of the game existed before Wynne’s “word-cross” puzzle, but his is the one that stuck and became the crossword puzzle that we know today. The publishing company Simon & Schuster got its big break by publishing a collection of the New York World’s crossword puzzles in 1924. The book then went on to become an overnight success, and Simon & Schuster continued publishing crossword compilations until 2007. Since its inception, the crossword puzzle has become a mainstay on newspapers. The New York Times is famous for its daily crossword puzzles that get increasingly difficult as the week progresses. Considered to be the most prestigious crosswords in circulation, the puzzle first appeared on the newspaper as a way for readers to pass the time during blackouts in the Second World War. Will Shortz, the world’s first and only enigmatologist and famous crossword puzzle editor for The New York Times, founded the annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament in 1978. Players compete by solving eight crossword puzzles specifically created for the event, and the winner is chosen based on accuracy and speed.
