Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Mensa® comes a series of super-challenging puzzles that go way beyond the average crossword—and also offer an authentic treasure-trove of wordplay demanding some skilled solving. Heres how they go: each clue has two parts. One is the normal definition of an answer, while the other features a little linguistic playfulness—maybe an anagram, perhaps a pun, and sometimes even a word written backward. And the hitch is…theres usually no indication of which comes first, or punctuation to mark the division. Youve got to see through the clue-makers deceptions and tease out the correct answer by rethinking the clues wording. Some of the irresistible language trickery includes double definitions, hidden answers, homophones, and containers.

Synopsis:

Can't stop, won't stop, never stop-solving! These captivating crosswords, constructed by two of the biggest names in the business, will leave puzzle fans begging for more. Featuring witty themes and clever clues based on puns, homophones, quips, anagrams, and more, Nonstop Crosswords provides hours of mind-twisting fun.
