Description

This latest instalment of the bestselling O Canada Crosswords series serves up an appetizing palate of Canadiana, pop culture and whimsical wordplay. Canadian themes touch on hockey, music, industry and places, and author Gwen Sjogren brings to the table several of her trademark pun puzzles like Money Changes Everything and Fit for a Witch. Seven grids have built-in shapes that enhance the rich flavour of this collection, including circle-in-the-square anagrams and the unique Breaking All the Rules--of crossword design, that is!

 

Sjogren takes a new approach to some non-themed Canada Cornucopia crosswords as "Challengers" and "Superchallengers" that give solvers a taste of something different. "Challengers" have seven or fewer three-letter answers; "Superchallengers" up the ante with fewer three-letter words and no fill-in-the-blank clues, either.

 

Packed with 100 puzzles, including 67 large-sized grids, O Canada Crosswords 16 offers a smorgasbord of 11,000+ clues for hours of crossword solving delight.
