Crossword-loving readers have a new source for their fix: this week, The Atlantic launched their daily crossword puzzle, which is available for free on their website. This crossword, which its editors describe as a "mini puzzle [that] gets bigger and more challenging each day," can be solved as a web app that includes such options as a timer, error check mode, and the ability to check or reveal a particularly troublesome letter or word (or the entire puzzle grid). For crossword purists, there is also the option to print the puzzles to solve them the old-fashioned way. This is not the first time The Atlantic has offered a crossword puzzle -- their earlier offering, "The Atlantic Puzzler," began in 1977 and continued its monthly print run until 2006. This latest iteration is written by Caleb Madison, who began contributing crossword puzzles to The New York Times while still an undergraduate at Yale University. New puzzles are added each weekday, and the full archive of puzzles remain online for anyone who misses a day, with the earliest puzzle of this run dated September 24, 2018.
