Welcome to Daily Crossword Links. Prior to starting this newsletter, I maintained this public Google Sheet containing all puzzle sources I can find. Updates aren’t immediate when I find a new site, but the best I can tell, it’s the most comprehensive out there and no other resource compiles every puzzle in one place. That’s my goal here.
My goal is to balance helpful information about the puzzles with simplicity for both myself and the reader. Each puzzle is linked with its source, title, constructor, paywall limitations, and available formats. I also ensure metas, cryptics, and themelesses are noted if it’s not otherwise clear.
Any single post has a few standing sections:
Major outlet crosswords
Cryptics, variety puzzles, and the like
Minis/Midis and the two most prominent phone apps
Standing links to American-style and cryptic crosswords that I don’t solve or track daily.
I highly recommend three other resources:
Amy Reynaldo (&co)’s Diary of a Crossword Fiend for daily reviews of the most popular puzzles. Many of my links come from their “Today’s Puzzles” page.
Alex Boisvert’s Crossword Butler Twitter account for notifications when some outlets publish new puzzles
Will Johnston’s Puzzle Pointers for archives
