Akron Crossword

Puzzle Tournament!

March 22, 2014

Meeting Room 2AB, 1-4pm


Compete to Complete Will Shortz’s crossword puzzles!

Here’s how it works:

All levels of crossword enthusiasts compete at unpublished crosswords provided by New York Times editor Will Shortz, the “puzzlemaster” himself. The puzzles begin easy and get progressively harder. Prizes are awarded to the top three finalists.

There are three stages, plus a final round. During each stage, contestants have twenty minutes to solve the puzzle. When finished (or when the time is up), the puzzles are collected and our judges score them. The top three finalists (top three cumulative scores) are announced after the third round. They then compete against each other with the fourth, and most difficult, puzzle on the auditorium stage.

Adults ages 18 and over. Meeting Room door opens at Noon. Parking in the High/Market deck is free on Saturday.

Free to register; email popdiv@akronlibrary.org or call 330-643-9015.
