Last Minute Help for the Holidays #1: "Merv Griffin's Crosswords"

For many people, crossword puzzles are a great way to pass the time, while engaging the mind.

But crosswords have always been more of an individual pastime—until now as Parker Brothers has made crossword puzzles a game for the whole family.
Based on the TV game show, “Merv Griffin’s Crosswords,” the “Crosswords” board game allows players or teams to earn points by answering the clues to a crossword puzzle. The person/team with the most points wins.

There are different ways to play, including players serving as “spoilers” to knock others out of earning points.

But the heart of the game is the crossword puzzle. And who doesn’t enjoy a good one of those?

“Merv Griffin’s Crosswords” board game (SRP $17.99) is for 2-6 players ages 12+. It’s available in stores and online now…
