What’s the attraction of a crossword? Well – do them for long enough, and you’ll learn a lot about the world. The general knowledge that you need to know to answer a crossword is immense, and once you’ve answered one answer, you’ve committed that little factoid to memory and it will never leave you. So do enough crosswords, and you’ll also become master of the pub quiz, master of trivial pursuit, and maybe even master of mastermind one day.

Crosswords are great for keeping the brain limber – not only do you need to know loads of general knowledge, but you need some serious lateral thinking skills – twisting around a cryptic question is like mental gymnastics, only without the danger of associated sports injuries. Crosswords can only strengthen your brain muscle – there’s no danger of repetitive strain injury here, or torn ligaments.

So if you’re crosswording for your brain, or just passing the time, Take A Break’s Take A Crossword is the best place to come for all the crosswords your heart could desire.

There’s one a month, so if you think you can get through 80 in a month, make sure you get a subscription! If you’re a slightly slower worker, then you can always just get a single copy from Newsstand.
