View Full Version : Where can I find free cryptic crosswords?

Ever since the English broadsheets (Times, Telegraph, Guardian) made their online crosswords chargeable, I have been suffering a lack of decent cryptic puzzles.
I offer you this site - The Crossword Centre (http://www.crossword.org.uk/) - in the hope others know of similar sites.
I don't have knowledge of any US newspapers with free crosswords either online or for download, so they'd be particularly welcome.

Here's the first three results from a Google search on "cryptic crosswords":
Once I started solving cryptics, I never went back to the regular type. Jeff Corey is a big fan of them as well.

I do subscribe to the Times online crosswords, because it's only £10 or so per year for access to the best crosswords in the world, and it saves me paying 50p a day for a paper which I often don't read aside from the crossword. It offers the standard Times, plus the Jumbos, the Listener (supposedly the hardest cryptic in the world), and several others.
Last time I checked, you could do them online, but not print them, without paying (though you had to register for free). This may not be the case anymore.
Of course, I could just give out my user name and password, so all here could take part, but I guess that'd be unethical.;)
