WELCOME to Movieweb's Wordplay Scavenger Hunt Puzzle section.

Movieweb is one of several Internet websites that are hosting clues to the Wordplay crossword puzzle. Complete rules to the scavenger hunt can be read at the movie's official website:


Official Rules to the scavenger hunt will be posted on FRIDAY at wordplaythemovie.com!

Wordplay is a documentary that focuses on the man most associated with crossword puzzles, New York Times puzzle editor and NPR puzzle-master Will Shortz. Director Patrick Creadon introduces us to this passionate hero, and to the inner workings of his brilliant and often hilarious contributors, including syndicated puzzle creator Merl Reagle. Along the way, the film presents interviews with celebrity crossword puzzlers such as Bill Clinton, Bob Dole, Jon Stewart, Ken Burns, Mike Mussina and the Indigo Girls, who reveal their process, insight and the allure of the game. In addition to deconstructing this uniquely American institution, "Wordplay" takes us though the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, an annual competition founded by Shortz. As the competitors are introduced and the tournament progresses, it becomes clear that this is more about community and comradery than anything else.

The film will be released June 16th, 2006 in New York and in select theaters nationwide on June 23.
