The trick is discovering which part is which, and cracking the anagrams, hidden words, and other language play within the clues. Games Magazine's World of Cryptic Crosswords includes a detailed, step-by-step explanation of how to solve cryptics, plus six warm-up puzzles, each illustrating the basic cryptic clue types. Also included are ten variety cryptic puzzles at the end of the book, for those intrepid solvers who have advanced to Master Solver status.
