#crossword puzzle answers
Crossword puzzle maker
The Crossword puzzle maker is used to make simple crossword puzzles. It turns out that good crossword puzzles of the type found in newspapers are fairly hard to generate, and require a pool of lots of words, not all of which are used. This program puts all of the words you specify (no more, no less) into a simple crossword puzzle.
The puzzle that is generated will remain on this server for about two months. If you want to ensure that you have a copy of the generated puzzle, make sure you save a copy.
If you want help with international characters, you can call up an Alphabet chart to use for cutting and pasting letters that are hard to type. This chart will come up in a separate window.
I have also added an “Information Gap” mode, suggested by a teacher who uses this site. This creates two partially solved puzzles, and pairs of students need to work together to give their own definitions to the other student in order to help complete each sheet. Let me know how this works for you.
I’ve added a “Word Bank” option to show the words that are used within a puzzle. Some teachers think this is a help for their students.
I have changed how Arabic is handled to be closer (I think) to how Arabic is actually supposed to work. If you try this out and have any feedback, let me know.
The first part of this is for you to enter a list of words and clues.
Once that part is done, hit the Make Puzzle button for a puzzle which incorporates your words.
As the number of words you put in the puzzle, increases, the wait increases exponentially. However, if you want a puzzle that is larger than what fits with this form, go to the Large Puzzle page.
Tip: If you’ve listed a puzzle for the public that you wish you hadn’t, go to the My Puzzles link in the sidebar. From there you can “Unlist” a puzzle, or completely delete it.
