February 25, 2012 -- Submitted by Fraser McKen, a teacher from Victoria BC Canada, who is affiliated with the site.

PuzzlePick.com features three different puzzles:

a) A daily standard (15 X 15) American puzzle, (“MorningMaze”) which looks like the one in your daily paper – along with a bonus word scramble which you can solve after you solve the daily crossword. Then on the weekend, there is a weekend version (21 X 21) which looks like the big weekend puzzles you get in the big weekend paper (but it’s nowhere near as tough to do).

Both puzzles are downloadable puzzle in .pdf and so is the solution, which you get with the following puzzle.

b) A weekly cryptic crossword, (“CoffeeCrypt”) along with an instruction pagefor those visitors who haven’t tried cryptic crosswords. This puzzle you can do either interactively or as a download in .pdf

c) A twice weekly interactive trivia puzzle (“SoHuNu?”) which, along with the interactive version of “CoffeeCrypt”, runs on a free, downloadable java platform which you can get at www.java.com.

The SoHuNu? is an interactive game which asks ten questions on a fun topic (ex. Famous Blondes, Famous Movie Bad Guys, etc.) But if you get bored before completing the puzzle, you can push a REVEAL button. Then after you’ve finished the puzzle, you win a prize! (A page will appear telling you where to get the prize.)

All these puzzles have been developed by a retired English teacher. Careful attention then has been paid to spelling and one major mission in the project has been to present students with an activity which will give them something constructive to do as well as inviting participation by the whole family.

I hope everyone enjoys Puzzlepick.com
