I am attempting to improve my abysmal Crossword Puzzle skills

by purchasing a smarter pen. No pencil and eraser for me.

We'll see how it goes.

1. I recently started doing crossword puzzles too.

My dad did them to keep his mind sharp and it worked for him. I'm not so sure about myself but it's worth a try and I find it to be a relaxing way to spend some time.
Enjoy!

2. I play tic tac toe. A real mind builder.

A computer still can't beat a human. Only tie.

5. If you can't beat your computer at tic-tac-toe, try kickboxing.......

4. Do you do them on paper?

I used to do them when I subscribed to a daily newspaper, but I haven't done one since I cancelled my subscription.

6. NYTimes has archives of all crosswords back to early 90's

They supply an app that allows user to print a copy.
Must have basic on-line subscription and you get the new ones every day.
I have been addicted for years.
