online crossword maker

Lately, I’ve been working my way through a book of cryptic crosswords.

On the way to work, I amused myself by thinking up some clues myself.

When I got here, I thought I’d look up some software to try making my own crossword. here’s the first one I found, and here’s a small example of what it can do (with the horrid HTML cleaned up):

1   2 

3. south american flower in a book shop


1. confused 5 nearly left the quoted bird
2. water a heavy microchip

The HTML leaves a lot to be desired, but it’s pretty good for a first find. I think I might write my own crossword (and crossword-makeer) later today.

See if you can solve that simple one. First correct answer gets a clap on the back.


  1. alternative clues:
    1. greatly praise Noah’s first
    2. note the first in musical scale
    3. sounds incredible!

  2. if you want to know the answers, hold your mouse over these:
    1 down
    2 down
    3 across
