Actually, Wordplay is about The New York Times crossword puzzle, the people who like to solve the Times puzzle every day, the people who create the Times crossword puzzle, and, finally, the movie is about the annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament.
Yeah, I think that’s about it.
Miss T and I like to do crossword puzzles and by far the best crosswords are from The New York Times. Published daily, the Times puzzle increases in difficulty from Monday to Saturday (the Sunday puzzle is easier than the Saturday). We get our Times puzzles when I’m fortunate enough to snag a free Sacramento Bee on the train which means I never have to work on a Saturday puzzle (this is a good thing—usually by Thursday I’m stumped).
If you like crossword puzzles, or documentaries, put Wordplay in your NetFlix queue.
