The same algorithms can also be used to create cryptic crossword puzzles

Crossword Puzzle Maker Algorithms

  • Compass-algorithm: This one makes sure that as many words as possible are entered into the generated crossword puzzle grid
  • Light-algorithm: After placing as many words as possible, the Light-algorithm tries to reduce the number of black squares and select the crossword puzzle with the most connections between answers.
  • Custom algorithm: Do you have a specific idea in mind for your (crossword) puzzle? I love to help you out. Send an email to Daan of Puzzel.org (daan@puzzel.org). 

Crossword Puzzles for Teachers & Students

I love the fact that the use of (crossword) puzzles within education enrich the learning experience of the students. But the necessary tools to accomplish this online from your own school LMS (Learning Management System), were not available. That's why I started Puzzel.org, to create the technology that enables teachers to easily generate crossword puzzles from their own learning materials. 

Teachers, you are the pillar of this society and I hope to help in any way I can by developing new tools or further improving the current crossword puzzle maker. If you have any questions or ideas about the Puzzel.org platform, please let me know.  

To accompany the development of puzzles within education, I have created a premium teacher account that enables even more features specifically for teachers, like removing advertisements from the puzzles, answer keys, disabling answers and collecting statistics!
