Here is a different
kind of crossword puzzle. Called the "R-E Puzzler," it has only Across words and
clues - no Downs. Its sort of a crossword puzzle with training wheels, or a
crossword puzzle for the vertical word challenged. Actually, not having
cross-linking Down words can make solving it a bit more difficult since only the
one or two provided letters are available to assist in figuring out the correct
word. Other variations of this sort of word grid has the provided letters spell
out a word or phrase, but this one doesn't. Every word is related to electronics
or electrical principles. Bon chance.
