Our site

Whether you are cross-word crazy, or try solving only occasionally, this site is for you! It’s got stacks of prime cross-words, and we add around 100 new ones each month. And at Crosswordsite, you can be certain what standards to expect.

Our content is toughness-graded in US and UK styles and English. There are several classes of easy cross-words and tough cryptics, each carrying a Romanesque graphic so you know what's coming.  For free US and UK grades, click the links.

Our aim is to provide a regular supply of consistently fine, diverting crosswords. The site is designed to be fast and straightforward to use and navigation should be easy.

It is not simple in the worldwide environment of the Web, but we do not use words which are likely to offend people.  What is innocuous in one country might be taboo somewhere else, even when English is spoken in both places, and we do not know every English insult in every country.  So if someone tells us of a word that evaded our own trawl, we will excise it from our site. That way, we keep family-friendly, safe  - and continuously supplied with the world's best insults!

We work to ensure that our site has the human touch. It's not our way to find huge wordlists in some corner of the Web, download them, find synonyms for each word as clues using a computer program and then publish automatically what comes out of the process without further thought. Some people do use this kind of approach - it is a cheap and quick way to do things. We don't do it because it can also be rather nasty, randomly producing odd words and often even odder clues which are sometimes definitely not for polite company and sometimes identical to others. The results can be, well, a little strange and not really satisfying to solve - unless you are a computer.

Naturally, this site is completely free for all its users. We do, however, have to keep our crosswords compiler, Tetrarch, generously supplied with tea, honey and numerous other liquids on a more or less continuous basis. He also needs large quantities of fish to keep the little grey cells in peak condition. Without these commodities, we could have trouble with his puzzle output. So there is some advertising onsite to keep him happy and our Internet Service Provider paid, and thus to keep our site rolling. We hope the ads won't prove too distracting for visitors.

That's probably enough about the site for now. Our xwords will give you endless fun. They can be used for educational purposes and solved anywhere. Also, you could tell your friends about Crosswordsite - and share your good fortune in finding us! So why wait any longer? Click below, and get rolling!
