Puzzability is a puzzle writing company created by three former editors of Games Magazine. Start with their puzzle sampler and come back for a set of regularly updated games. Puzzability is also responsible for creating the New York Times' intricately crafted Op-Ed Puzzles. Unlike the Times' daily crosswords, these wonderfully elaborate puzzles are available in a free archive.

I'm surprised that Puzzability hasn't been linked before! I used to visit this site daily, and that must have been six or seven years ago. It's great that it's still around.

Barbara Hall, 84, the Sunday Times puzzles editor, has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours for services to crosswords and newspapers. Hall’s puzzles have graced the pages of The Sunday Times for 32 years. Her career began when she was paid two guineas for a puzzle published in 1938.

She worked with codes in the WRNS, based on the east coast in the second world war, and since then has compiled crosswords on “every subject imaginable”. After nearly 70 years devising puzzles, she believes she has had “several thousand” published. “I like to keep going,” she says. “I think it keeps the Alzheimer’s away.”
For services to crosswords!

pracowity, that is awesome.

lalex, if you're a fan of the NYT puzzle pages, you should try out an issue of P&A magazine. These too are works of art.
