The Crossword puzzle maker is used to make simple crossword puzzles.
It turns out that good crossword puzzles of the type
found in newspapers are fairly hard to generate, and require
a pool of lots of words, not all of which are used.
This program puts all of the words you specify (no more, no less)
into a simple crossword puzzle.
The puzzle that is generated will remain on this server for about two months.
If you want to ensure that you have a copy of the generated puzzle,
make sure you save a copy.
The first part of this is for you to enter a list of words
and clues.
Once that part is done, hit the Make Puzzle button for a puzzle
which incorporates your words.
For puzzles with more than about 15 words, this
takes a long time (measured in minutes).
As the number of words
increases, the wait increases exponentially.
Tip:
You can put clues in with almost any character set.
See the
Peace
puzzle for an example.
The characters are represented as UTF-8 which allows many different
character sets.
PDF generation doesn’t work well for puzzles with non-latin characters.
In addition, having the answers as non-latin characters may give
inconsistant results.
