Photos & Recaps from the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament

 I start the New York Times Crossword every day (I can't always finish) and have often fantasized about throwing down with the real puzzle masters at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. Photographer Rufus Mangrove was there last weekend, and his artful shots of the event make it look like a blast.

Check out Eric Berlin and Rex Parker (my favorite crossword blogger) for more info and insight into the tournament. See you next year?


  1. How cool – good (beautiful!) photography is so communicative.  I haven’t touched a crossword for years, and only ever did a few, but the enjoyment in those photos … y’know!

    I particularly liked seeing the t-shirt that read, in symbols, ‘(square root of minus one) (heart) you’

    I’m heading to the paper shop.
