"Puzzlecraft" has been a popular series in Games magazine for years, and now all the instructions have been compiled and updated (along with brand-new sample puzzles) to teach you everything you need to know to construct puzzles of all kinds, from crosswords to word searches to sudoku. Guided by Mike Selinker and Thomas Snyder, two pros who really know their stuff, you'll be making puzzles and entertaining your friends in no time.
