Crossword puzzles first appeared in 1890 when Italian, Giuseppe Airoldi, first published "Per passare il tempo" ("To pass the time") in an Italian magazine. His four by four crossword grid with clues for across and down wasn't developed upon much until 1913 when an English journalist Arthur Wynne came up with a crossword that much more resembled the ones we are used to today. The crossword was actually called a "word-cross" puzzle and it was published in the New York World. Now you can play crosswords online like the ones below, for free.
