Really enjoyable

I am gonna go out on a limb here and say this is the best timed crossword puzzle known to humankind.

Oh, you’ll think, I am soooo clever for solving these puzzles! These puzzles are so fun and easy! I am an invincible champion! And then on the next one you will find your heart racing as the countdown clock ticks down to nothing and your win streak goes up in flames.

Simple. Delightful. Would give additional stars if that were possible.

Super fun daily game! Love this app.

I like that it’s timed and that I get to compete against myself. I had some friends download it and we play against each other now too. My longest streak was 9 days and I look forward to when the puzzle comes out at night to try to get back to it. Def recommend!

Fun, quick, and challenging

I like this better than any of the full puzzle apps, because you get in and out, and you can set the difficulty high enough to make it an actual challenge.
