Left Handed Crossword
We have a few comments from people that it is annoying trying to do crosswords where the clues are to the left of the puzzle grid. We wondered if left-handers would find it easier than right-handers to do a crossword with the clues on the right and also with the answers running from right to left?
Here is a crossword that we put together for one of our newsletters – you can print this page and have a go at it yourself. For an added challenge, try to complete all the answers in mirror writing! Let us know how you get on by adding a comment at the bottom. We would also be interested to know how right-handers get on with it.

Making crossword layouts is more complicated than it appears and we didn’t actually follow all the rules in our example above. Making crossword puzzles – the strict rules.

This is an interesting variation – an online crossword where all the answers can be typed using only the left hand – on the left half of the computer keyboard.
