Watching 'Wordplay' will make you a better New York Times crossword puzzle solver


That's based on my series of one (myself), after attempting today's (Thursday) New York Times puzzle some 12 hours after watching the film, which I'd read about somewhere or other as being hugely entertaining.

I'd call it entertaining but that's of trivial import compared to the fact that there is no question but that viewing the movie gave me a sense of the spirit of Will Shortz and his minions, the 110 constructors (for a typical year's puzzles) who are themselves each a piece of work.

Here is the ferrous-clad bookofjoe guarantee: If for any reason you do not feel this movie improved your puzzling skill, simply let me know and I will cheerfully refund whatever you paid to buy/rent/download it.

Now where else are are you gonna get that?

Watch an excerpt from the film here.
