Puzzler Annual

Not, as the title suggests, a once-a-year publication, but seven themed issues to mark the seasons and holidays.

Puzzler Annual is a compendium of over 200 puzzles from across the Puzzler range, and typically contains arrowords, codewords, kriss kross, quick crosswords, sudoku, wordsearch, plus other favourite grid-based variations. There is a six-page section of simple, amusingly illustrated puzzles for children.

The puzzles are clearly laid out, with some quirky and interesting facts and quotations along the way. Each page is attractively illustrated to match the theme of the magazine.

Each issue comes with a free pen and there is always one competition.

Puzzles included:

Add Up, Add-A-Letter, Alphabetical Jigsaw, Arroword, Backwards, Codeword, Continuity, Crossword, Cryptic Crossword, Dilemma, Dropout, Honeycomb, Jolly Mixtures, Kriss Kross, Kross-Filler, Linkword, Missing Links, Number Jig, Pathfinder, Pieceword, Shortcode, Skeleton Codeword, Skeleton Crossword, So Complete!, Spiral, Step Ladder, Sudoku, Three To One, Two-By-Two, Vowel Play, Wordsearch
