Recently Universal has changed their puzzle and it now comes with a musical background and new graphics.
It is "moody" so you may find yourself nodding off while it is playing. So finish it quickly.
Another find was the Wall Street Journal puzzle. I don't know when it became available online but it is now available. A usually very challenging puzzle. You can play on line or print it out.
I started doing crosswords many years ago after it was suggested it was a good way to keep one's brain from turning to mush. It was also suggested at the time that it was best to be sober. So I quit consuming alcohol and started puzzling and you know what--I can still tell you what day it is and hangovers are a thing of the past. Possibly the only downside was the layoff of a couple of bartenders. I feel no guilt, though.
