Summary

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!
