  • The crossword-puzzle fad that followed eventually led to the creation of many similar puzzles in other newspapers, including some with distinctly different rules from the “New York Times”.

The puzzle required entrants not only to fill in standard synonym squares but also to answer clues which required them to solve a second level.
