Today's Puzzles / Wed., 12/2 Alan DerKazarian
« Last post by magus on December 02, 2015, 09:23:45 AM »
THEME:   first word of a phrase (Down in grid) can be modified by BEAR
Focuses even harder {& theme}   BEARS DOWN   
Instead of "COMO esta?" I'd say "Perry with more Number One hit singles than Sinatra and Elvis combined."   
Destroyer destroyer   UBOAT [actually it was the other way around --- destroyers, which used Sonar, were made to torpedo submarines thereby protecting larger ships both military and commercial]   
RATING:    :'(
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

Does anyone know how to download the Crosynergy puzzles in across lite format? I use the Crosswords app on iPad and have never figured out how to access those puzzles, or if it's possible. Thanks!

The LA Times Puzzle Archives are back!  Please remember that if you are using a mobile device such as a smartphone, you must request the desktop version of the site, since there is no link to the archive on the mobile version of the site.  Alternately, you can go directly to on your mobile (or desktop or laptop) device.  If you had this page bookmarked before the site change, your bookmark will work once again.

The link for the December 3 puzzle does not work.  Hopefully it will be fixed tomorrow.

This site doesn't include puzzle-making software. Not sure if you have to be a member to access the Puzzle Database, but from there you can click on Grids. If your theme has, say, four 11-letter entries - insert those numbers (11, 11, 11, 11) and then click Submit to see examples of grids with that number count.

Today's Puzzles / December 1 crosswords: The buzz on Woody
« Last post by Thomps2525 on December 01, 2015, 01:53:13 PM »
My subject line, "The buzz on Woody," is for all you Toy Story fans. Now that my daily bad pun is out of the way, I can talk about today's crossword by Jeffrey Wechsler, which commemorates the birth of filmmaker Woody Allen, who was born Allan Stewart Konigsberg on December 1, 1935 in the Bronx and legally changed his name to Heywood Allen when he was 17. Woody is a nickname for Heywood. Today's puzzle, which begins with WOODY and ends with ALLEN, includes the titles of five films which he wrote and directed: BANANAS, SLEEPER, STARDUSTMEMORIES, MIDNIGHTINPARIS and MIGHTYAPHRODITE.

For the "Mister Magus Not-Used-In-English File": ORO, OSA and SEI ("Sardinian six").

Five clues in today's Daily News crossword by Kurt Mueller are "Vampire's bane" numbers 1 through 5. Four of the answers are THEHOLYBIBLE, DIRECTSUNLIGHT, SILVERBULLET, and GARLICNECKLACE. The fifth answer is literal and occupies the center of the grid: HEART is horizontal and is crossed vertically by STAKE. Get it? "Stake through the heart." Very clever!

The "colorful" Universal crossword includes REDWHITEANDBLUE, YELLOWSTONEPARK and BLACKEYEDSUSANS.

The NEA crossword clued EONS with "Zillions of years." Merriam-Webster defines "zillion" as "an indefinitely large number." The word was first used in 1934 and is patterned after "million" and "billion." In 1947, Disney comic-book artist Carl Barks created the character of Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck's wealthy uncle. In the book The Life & Times Of Scrooge McDuck, Scrooge's wealth is said to be "Five multiplujillion, nine impossibidillion, seven fantasticatrillion dollars and 16 cents." I'm guessing that's considerably more than a zillion.
