If you're not familiar with quick crosswords, then these are the type of crosswords that one often sees on the backpage of daily newspapers: the clues tend to be straightforward and, well, 'quick' in that the answers are predominantly synoynms of the words given rather than, for instance, requiring general knowledge or knowledge of a given theme.
Solving quick crosswords usually requires scanning the grid to find some words that have unambiguous answers, as there will often be more than one word that fits in a particular gap at the start of the puzzle, and it is only by reducing the options by placing other letters that one gains certainty as to which particular answer is the one that the puzzle is looking for.
The player tool allows you to have incorrect answers highlighted as you go along which you can tick, so if you are not a confident solver you will be able to find out as soon as you make a mistake!
