Let us help you solve the crossword puzzle

The process of solving a crossword puzzle. First, you need to do your own research. You should look at the clues and try to fill in as many boxes as possible on your own. If you feel like you’re really stuck, there are plenty of tools that can help make the process easier. Our favorite is to use a thesaurus because it allows you to find synonyms for words quickly and easily. If you’re trying to find an answer but are still getting stuck, then try using all known letters and searching for those letters on a crossword clue website such as this. This will often spark new ideas about what might work best in a particular place within the puzzle based on how other people have solved it previously without giving away too much information (though sometimes people share their exact solution).

Finally, we want to encourage everyone not just give up when they get stumped by something they think is unsolvable or too difficult! Think hard and learn new things!

How do you solve crosswords?

When solving a crossword puzzle, you’ve got to keep several types of words in mind. It’s not just your average nouns and verbs that come into play. You’ll see across-the-board terms:

  • `Across-the-board`—equally applicable to everyone or everything involved; all-inclusive
  • `Abroad`—to, in, or at a foreign country; away from home; wide of the mark; at large
  • `Afar`—at or by a great distance; a long way off

Additionally, you’ll encounter acronyms: short forms made up of the initial letters of other words, like NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and ASAP (as soon as possible). Some are pronounceable (TNT), while others aren’t (SNAFU). A crossword constructor may create their own acronym to fit the given word length. For example, if there are five spaces available for an answer, the constructor might use an abbreviation for “electricity,” like “ELC.”
