Welcome to Gryptics, an entirely new genre of crossword puzzle! The definition clues are completely gone, and some lettering is outside the grid. The only tools anyone needs to solve a puzzle are logic and pattern recognition. Les Foeldessy, a self-professed puzzle fanatic, created the idea of the Gryptic, developed the accompanying software, and now has made the first of his puzzles come alive in print. Foeldessy's goals were simple - to find interesting words, avoid obscure ones, and achieve eclectic juxtapositions. In his one hundred creative puzzles, arranged by difficulty from easy to hard, the words are more challenging than in a traditional crossword puzzle; however, the rules are clear, there is only one possible solution per puzzle, and a hints section is included with extra letters provided for those who may get stuck. Gryptics presents a completely different and fascinating crossword experience for both the novice and proficient puzzle enthusiast who is ready to enjoy a new generation in crossword puzzles!
