Sharpen your mind for the Crossword Puzzle Tournament… (have you heard about Dr. Fill?)

I admire the Crossword Puzzle People out there. You know who you are. Your mind is sharp, you are quick witted and can make the necessary leaps in your head to fill in the 10 Downs and 12 Across-es in the magical world of Puzzles. We sell a ton of New York Times Crossword Puzzle Books, like the one above- all edited by Will Shortz. I heard Mr. Shortz talking the other day about the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, which starts TODAY in Brooklyn (oohh yeahhhh). Have you heard about the unofficial competitor, Dr. Fill? Dr. Fill is a COMPUTER created by On Time Systems to give the rest of entrants a run for their money. As Mr. Shortz says, “Solving crosswords involves so much knowledge, so much stuff that’s not in books, that’s not in any database, that it is amazing to think that a computer could solve a crossword.” We’ll see what happens… In the meantime, if you are more of an Armchair Puzzler- perhaps this Fireside Sunday Crosswords is for you- $10.99.
