The Great WordPlay Contest

A few days ago I already read an article about WordPlay on Puzzlinks.

On several websites you can find clues for the WordPlay Puzzle Contest. One of those sites is Movie Online and they take part of an internet Crossword Puzzle to celebrate the release of WordPlay.

WordPlay Hits theatres June 16th 2006. This irreverent and humorous film focuses on the man most associated with crossword puzzles, New York Times puzzle editor and NPR puzzle-master Will Shortz. Director Patrick Creadon introduces us to this passionate hero, and to the inner workings of his brilliant and often hilarious contributors, including syndicated puzzle creator Merl Reagle.

In addition to deconstructing this uniquely American institution, WordPlay takes you though the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament where almost five hundred competitors battled it out for the title “Crossword Champ” and showed their true colors along the way.

You can buy theĀ Wordplay DVD from Amazon.
