Daily Puzzles Now Organized by Difficulty

Seasoned puzzle fans know that newspaper crosswords usually get harder through the week – now that will be true of the “Un-Crossword” also! Each week, 7 Little Words’ Daily Puzzles will be easiest on Monday and get progressively harder through Saturday. On Sundays, we will continue to present themed puzzles of varying difficulty.

Did you know that 7 Little Words is now in paperback?

Having made the leap from digital to paper last year when it began running in newspapers in the U.S. and abroad, our “un-crossword” puzzle is now available in a handy little paperback edition from Andrews McMeel Publishing. Find the new books at Amazon and Barnes & Noble – or ask for them at your favorite local bookseller.


2nd Anniversary for 7 Little Words!

What could we do to celebrate 2 years of 7 Little Words?  How about more free puzzles, which is the one thing that everybody seems to want?

Beginning today (and over the next few weeks), a new, free zone of 50 puzzles will begin rolling out across the English language platforms supported by 7 Little Words (iPhone/iPad, Android, Kindle, Nook and Windows 8). An upcoming update will include the new “Robots” zone. Remember, since each app store has different processes, “Robots” will not show up on all devices simultaneously.

Happy puzzling – and thank you very much for your tremendous support of 7 Little Words!
