Original illustration of a cute cat character in a sweater and reading glasses sitting in a chair working on a cryptic crossword puzzle. In cryptics each clue is a little brain teaser puzzle. Cryptic crosswords are tougher than regular crosswords and so they appeal to many smart people who like to use their brains. They are popular in the UK but harder to find in the US so you may find puzzles that require a bit of knowledge of the history or landmarks of Britian and the rest of the UK.
