Second Issue out now!

There are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain. The sort of pain that’s only suffering. I have no patience for useless things.

Inspired by the cryptic-crossword-worthy schemes and deceptions of Francis J Underwood – television’s most conniving and ambitious president – we give you Issue 2 of the cruciverbalist. Hopefully any pain you endure solving these puzzles will not cause suffering, but rather make you stronger for the crises and crosswords of the future.

Are crosswords a useless thing? You might very well think that, but we couldn’t possibly comment.

Issue #2 features 10 deceptive and elaborative cryptic crosswords and is hitting the figurative newsstands today. Grab a copy through our online shop, real world stockists are on the way.
