The New York Times Set Puzzle Book : The Family Game of Visual Perception
The New York Times crossword puzzle is a daily puzzle published in The New York Times , online at the newspaper's website, syndicated to more than other newspapers and journals,  and available as mobile apps. The puzzle is created by various freelance constructors and has been edited by Will Shortz since The puzzle becomes increasingly difficult throughout the week, with the easiest puzzle on Monday and the most difficult puzzle on Saturday. While crosswords became popular in the early s, it was not until that The New York Times which initially regarded crosswords as frivolous, calling them "a primitive form of mental exercise" began running a crossword in its Sunday edition. The motivating impulse for the Times to finally run the puzzle which took over 20 years even though its publisher, Arthur Hays Sulzberger , was a longtime crossword fan appears to have been the bombing of Pearl Harbor ; in a memo dated December 18, , an editor conceded that the puzzle deserved space in the paper, considering what was happening elsewhere in the world and that readers might need something to occupy themselves during blackouts. In , the crossword became a daily feature. That first daily puzzle was published without an author line, and to this day the identity of the author of the first weekday Times crossword remains unknown.
The Times has been actively expanding its portfolio of challenging but accessible puzzles to provide a wider array of game options for different types of game players. One additional strategy around launching Tiles is to reach users who may not be native English-language speakers. When two tiles are tapped, all elements they share will disappear. Players can tap more tiles to remove more shapes and must clear the entire board to win. After players play their first game, they will be asked to register with an email address and password for access to play more. With more than , subscriptions that is, people paying to play to the Crossword, The Times has been drawing on its popularity to expand its games portfolio over the last year, first with the launch if Spelling Bee in , followed by Letter Boxed in February of this year.
