New York Times Crossword Answers and more information about the best known newspaper

The New York Times crossword puzzle is one of the best known and oldest crossword puzzles in the United States. The first crossword puzzle was published in the Sunday edition in 1942. Since 1993, the crossword puzzle has been published in the newspaper by editor Willy Shorz, who has been in charge of the puzzles since that day. Freelance constructors create the crossword puzzles so that each puzzle is always new and exciting.

The NY Times crossword puzzle comes out every day and makes puzzle lovers all over the world addicted. Meanwhile, you can solve the crossword puzzle not only in the print edition of the newspaper, but also online on the New York Times website as well as in the on-the-go app.

What's special about the New York Times Crossword Puzzles?

The level of difficulty gets a little bit higher every day. The easiest puzzle always starts on Monday, and each day the complexity of the puzzle questions increases. They usually contain around 78 words. The crossword puzzle on Saturday is the hardest. The biggest crossword puzzle comes out on Sunday, published in the New York Time Magazine. A maximum of 140 words or questions are waiting to be solved in the Sunday crossword.

The questions in the New York Times crossword may consist of fill-in-the-blank, word games, anagrams and regular questions. This keeps the crossword puzzle always exciting and you have to read the questions carefully.

Almost every New York Times crossword is rotationally symmetrical, which means you can rotate them 180 degrees and still keep them identical.

The Monday through Thursday crosswords, and of course the Sunday puzzle, have themes incorporated as entertainment that you can discover along with the normal answers. They are a puzzle within a puzzle, so to speak, to be solved. You'll recognize them by what they have in common. Sometimes they are anagrams, hidden words or even visual themes.

Fun fact: Did you know that in typical American crossword puzzles, an entry always consists of at least three letters?

Tips for solving The New York Times Crossword Clue Answers

Start With Monday´s easy Crossword

As said before, Monday's easy crossword puzzle is the easiest one and thus perfect to start with. Don't make the mistake of starting with the Saturday crossword, because you have more time there. A clever trick, especially for beginners, is to do many Monday crosswords to become more confident and expand your vocabulary. Then you can work your way to the next difficult crossword puzzle bit by bit.

When you get to the Saturday crossword, real crossword skills are required. This is much more about wordplay and the questions are not so easy to solve. You often need deeper knowledge and have to think more around the corner.
