If you thought Sudoku created a buzz after resurfacing in 2003, you haven’t heard anything yet. Crosswords have been around for as long as anyone can remember, and have never failed to enthrall those who combine a sharp sense of creativity with a strong love for word games.

Featuring Will Shortz, Editor of The New York Times’ Crossword, Wordplay focuses on the annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. Showcasing five different contestants who enter to win the title of “Crossword Champ,” this delightful documentary serves as a geeky but very intriguing look into how The New York Times’ Crossword has affected their everyday lives.

With the majority of the documentary engaging the audience with the “How-To’s” and the “How-Not-To’s” of being competitive in such an environment, you are guaranteed to look at crossword puzzlers through entirely different eyes.
