Well, I am fond of playing both indoor or outdoor games because it works as a stress reliever for me. To be honestly, I am able to loosen up while playing indoor games especially puzzle.
Although I’ve tried my hand at a couple of puzzles like Sudoku and Scrabble, I enjoy crossword most. It is a game of words and I came to know about this game last year in the month of June. That time our nation situation was so critical due to Covid19 so we all were free at home. In the beginning, I just wanted to learn something unique from each and everything. That time, these kind of activities were totally wastage of time.
One day, I got opportunity when my elder sister was playing puzzle on paper board. Surprising fact was that, she was playing as well as learning some English words which developed my interest toward it. Ultimately, I said to my sister that I also wanted to learn crossword puzzle because I didn’t know the basic of crossword.
In the starting, leaning puzzle was really hard nut to crack for me. Earlier, in order to solve the entire crossword, I usually took around one hour but with the passage of time I started to solve within 20 minutes. Now this game is like A B C for me and I can play within only 5 minutes that gives me happiness and knowledge as well.
Now let me explain about this game in short. This is a board that comes in rectangle shape and other shapes as well. In order to play this game, we need maximum four players or minimum 2 players. Each player has one score board where they can note down their score. It has different level some levels are easy to do but some are quite challenging. I usually go with difficult one because I love to set myself a challenge.
As this is a game of words so they give us different letters and we have to make one complete word. Moreover, I learnt two or three new words through this puzzle in my daily routine so it helped me to develop my vocabulary. Meanwhile, it’s also a perfect time-filler.
Now, I have this game in my phone whenever I have some spare time. I love to play this game with my siblings, so this is a game which I like.
