Crossword Tournament From Your Couch

An online crossword solving competition

Crossword Tournament From Your Couch


Crossword Tournament From Your Couch is an online, synchronous, live-streamed crossword solving competition. Whether you’ve attended crossword tournaments in person or you just enjoy doing crosswords for fun on your own, this event is for you!

Our first tournament took place on March 20, 2020, and was conceived of, organized, and executed in little more than a week. As the largest crossword tournament in history, and the first to be held online, the event attracted 1,815 solvers from couches all across the US and the world including Italy, Israel, Greece, Norway, and the Yukon, among others. Thank you to all our participants for making our first tournament a huge success! Visit the tournament page to solve the puzzles, view the final standings, and more, or read our recap letter to participants.

Crossword Tournament From Your Couch will return…
