WSJ Adds Puzzles On Saturday

puzzle.jpgIn its quest to become more of a general interest newspaper, The Wall Street Journal is adding a puzzle section to its Saturday Weekend Edition paper, starting tomorrow.

The section will include cryptic crosswords from Emily Cox and Henry Rathvon, creators of The Atlantic‘s Puzzler, novelty crosswords in unique shapes and acrostics from the Journal‘s crossword editor Mike Shenk.

“The Journal is already home to an outstanding Friday crossword, and readers will no doubt relish our new Saturday line-up of adventurous and addictive puzzles,” WSJ editor-in-chief Robert Thomson. “Our aim is to amuse and bemuse intelligent people.”

And those bemused, intelligent people will now also get a chance to comment on puzzles on an expanded puzzles section of WSJ.com. More games and puzzles will premiere in the coming weeks.
