On December 21, 1913, the first crossword was published in the 'New York World' newspaper. Soon, the crossword became the hobby of intelligent people. They solved it on the subway, during breakfast with the first coffee, while waiting in line and more. In the last century, anyone who had confidence in the gray cells of his brain would scribble carbon letters on the crumpled piece of paper every morning.
The first crossword was invented by Arthur Wynn, a British-born violinist and journalist who immigrated to Pennsylvania when he was 19.
Crossword puzzles have many advantages, such as brain stimulation and thinking, which are hypothesized to protect against the onset of Alzheimer's disease.
