Cryptic Crossword

How to play our Cryptic Crossword Puzzle

Join thousands of seniors and older Australians and play our free daily cryptic crossword. Unlike traditional crosswords, our cryptic crosswords use puns, word play and hidden meanings as clues to make them more challenging than the classic crossword puzzle.

The goal is to figure out what the clues are pointing to and fill in the grid with the correct words. This is typically done by analyzing the words in the clues, breaking them apart, and finding the hidden meaning within them. We upload new cryptic crossword puzzles daily and give you access to the previous six days puzzles incase you miss a day!
