Everything You Need to Know About Crossword Clues

If you’re new to the Crossword puzzle game world and you are wondering what a Crossword clue is, we're here to help. First of all, welcome aboard! Once you’ve skimmed over the crossword board, the crossword clues are where you will need to land to begin your crossword challenge! The crossword clues are made up of a series of clues, which are usually according to a crossword theme that will directly, or indirectly provide you with the answers to plug into your crossword puzzle board. Though the clues may appear simple and short, they are far from easy to decode. These cryptic codes can even be a challenge for a crossword expert, which is a part of what makes the game so appealing and stimulating!

Answers Vs. Clues

All the clues you were able to unscramble in your crossword game result in one word answers which you plug into your crossword grid. Naturally, the game is complete when you have solved all the clues and filled in all the empty white cells with letters and words of any length. Though, even rookies have trouble solving all of the crossword clues in their game. The good news is, when you can’t resolve a clue, you can plug in the clue into the crossword clue solver tab and scroll through all your potential options outlined in the rich clue lists. You can even click on the words for dictionary definitions. Talk about education! Of course, if you already have some answers entered into the board you’ll have a much easier time narrowing down which answer is a match for your game. 

Alternatively, you can enter the answer you already have at hand into the Crossword puzzle answer tab, which will then generate crossword clues. Whichever tab you choose, just know this: answers and options await you!
