How to Ward Off Crossword Puzzles
So you’ve played enough Crosswords to know that it’s pointless to try and win by guessing what the next letter is. I’m here to tell you that you can forget about that! There are two ways you can play this great game of guesswork-and guess again. One is the time-tested classic, and the other is a new twist on an old favorite.
Before I reveal how to win with Crossword, I must tell you that you don’t need to be a genius. You just need a keen eye for the patterns. As long as you’re looking at letters in the right order, you’ll do fine. That means being able to identify the main point or theme of a word before you even see it or make out the rest of it. And once you know the theme of a word, you can usually figure out what the rest of it is.
The way to play this game of ‘who knows what’ and ‘what’s in it for me’? It’s easy to start out by looking at a word that’s in the center of the line. For example, a four-letter word like CLEAN is usually one of the first three letters on the line. Then look at the four letters in that word to see if there are any words that come before it that have either the same or a similar spelling to it. Once you’ve found a word like this, you can go ahead and write the word down.
This way of playing ‘who knows what’ and ‘what’s in it for me’ is called ‘bone searching’. Don’t worry; it won’t take too long. As a matter of fact, it will only take you a couple of minutes. Just look at the words on the left side of the sheet and then on the right side. Once you’ve written two or three words (depending on which way you are facing) and then looked at the ones on the right, you can now count to two.
After two seconds you must flip the page over so you can read the words that were in the ‘bone search’ on the right. If they are in the correct positions, you win the game known as the Warding Off Crossword puzzle. That’s right. You can win a crossword game, without even having to try.
