Introduction The birth of the familiar crossword puzzle as we know it is a well-documented and quite clear-cut event: the first such black-and-white solution grid with accompanying clues appeared in The New York World on December 13, 1913, brainchild of Arthur Wynne, a member of the World’s staff (1).
