The compact size of Pocket Crosswords makes it an ideal portable entertainment centre.
Clues include word definitions, synonyms and general knowledge – covering topics such as television, films, and literature. The clues require a reasonable vocabulary and level of general knowledge, but the puzzles are designed to appeal to both the crossword enthusiast and the casual dabbler. No obscure words appear in the grids.
The layout of the magazine is simple, but functional.
Each issue runs the Pocket Money competition, in which readers can win a £1,000 jackpot. This competition is run in conjunction with other participating Puzzler Media titles. There are also occasional seasonal competitions.
