The most popular and widespread word game Crossword Puzzle was invented by the British-born inventor Arthur Wynne during her residence at Cedar Grove, New Jersey, USA. Arthur Wynne was born on June 22, 1871 in Liverpool, England. He immigrated into the United States on June 6, 1891 at the age of 19.
A crossword puzzle is a game of words where the player is given a hint and the number of letters. The player then fills in a grid of boxes by finding the right words. Liverpool journalist, Arthur Wynne invented the first crossword puzzle. Wynne's puzzle first appeared in the December 21, 1913 edition of the World, as one of the "Fun" section's "mental exercises." It was diamond-shaped, without blackened-out squares, and with easy clues. After 1942, it was the New York Times that set the standards for professional crosswords: e.g., symmetrical grids, with answers at least three letters long. Arthur Wynne's crossword puzzle was initially called word-cross and was diamond shaped. The name later switched to cross-word and then crossword. Wynne's puzzles have been known as "crosswords" ever since.
