Casual Crosswords

Casual Crosswords
Random House Puzzles & Games created the Random House Casual Crosswords series for the thousands of fledgling solvers and casual crossword fans who are disappointed and frustrated by the supposedly easy puzzle books on the market.
For the third volume of this unique series, veteran puzzle editor Mel Rosen again began by commissioning 50 crosswords that are solvable with just a pencil--no chunky erasers, heavy reference books or prescription tranquilizers needed here. Next, Mel carefully edited the puzzles to make sure they'd be free of the tricks, gimmicks and crosswordese that often turn off beginning and occasional solvers--while at the same time insuring that the themes and clues would be fresh and lively. Last of all, he added plenty of special hints and tips--both general and specific--to make the puzzles truly solver-friendly. The result is a book of 50 fun-to-solve crosswords guaranteed to turn many a tentative puzzler into a lifelong fan.
