GAME INSTRUCTIONS

Solve the crossword clues and fill in the answers on the grid.

Use the mouse to click on a square in the grid. The square you select is highlighted in pink, the word-space is highlighted in yellow and the corresponding clue is highlighted in the ‘Clues’ column on the right. Click again to change the direction of the word-space from ACROSS to DOWN (or back again).

Or, use the mouse to click on any clue in the ‘Clues’ column on the right. This will highlight both the clue (in the column on the right) and the word-space in the crossword.

Solve the clue and type in the answer. If you are correct, the word-space will be highlighted in blue. When you have finished typing in an answer, use the Space Bar to move to the next clue.

The Quick Crossword has been specially developed for maximum efficiency. New features include:
  • Larger sized font makes the clues easier to read.
  • Scroll function: Hover your mouse over an Across or Down clue list. Use the mouse wheel to scroll through the clues quickly.
  • Use either the Enter key or the Space bar to move between answers on the grid.
  • Brighter clue highlighting to monitor your progress.
Deleting or changing letters
Click on the letter then use the Backspace key. Or click on the letter and just type another one over it. Once you have typed in the correct letter, it cannot be changed.

Moving about the Crossword
Use the Space Bar or Arrow keys to move around the crossword. If you were in an ACROSS word-space on the crossword, the Space Bar will move you to the next word going ACROSS. If you were in a DOWN word-space, it will move you to the next word going DOWN.
