Puzzler Arrowords

A magazine that is dedicated entirely to arrowords, with over 70 puzzles, and including a 16-page Arrowords Extra section featuring super-size arrowords.

In the magazine are several variations on the classic 'clues in the grid' puzzle. Some offer an extra challenge. For example, when the solutions have been entered, the letters that fall in certain shaded squares in a puzzle may form an anagram; such anagrams may provide a link between two puzzles. Alternatively, there may be a quiz element based on, for example, a star's career. There is a strong TV and celebrity element throughout, and many puzzles are complemented by pictures of personalities. Most clues are of an easy-to-medium difficulty, based on word definitions or general knowledge. Some are a little trickier, but there are no deep or cryptic clues.

Each issue runs the Puzzler Big Cash competition that runs across the Puzzler range, in which readers can win a share of 6,000. There are occasional seasonal competitions.
