In 2018, the world will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the creation of the International Crossword Competition, which brought together hundreds of thousands of puzzle-writing experts across the globe.
While the competition was conceived as a way to showcase the world’s brightest minds, it quickly became a symbol of modernism, and as such, it became synonymous with the era of digital literacy.
The world’s best crossword puzzles were produced with a computer and the ability to process text with ease.
But what if you could have the power of a human hand to complete a puzzle?
In a quest to find out, we’ve rounded up the best crosswords, and the people behind them, in this exclusive article.
Opus Crossword: The World’s Best Crossword Puzzle In 2016, the International Open Crossword Puzzles Association (IOCPA) awarded a new record to its winner, Opus, an electronic puzzle book from a team of world-renowned crossword experts, including Peter Latham, Nicky Williams, and Paul Regehr.
It was a thrilling moment for the crossword community, and now Opus is set to be a staple in the future of crosswords.
The book is a marvel of engineering, designed with the same spirit of design as the original.
The technology in the book is far more advanced than those of its predecessors.
The IOCPA has been proud to work with the team at Opus to bring the puzzle book to market, and we are incredibly proud to have created an even more beautiful and sophisticated piece of technology that allows the reader to engage with their own puzzle.
