Play Crossword Puzzle Games on Linux Desktop With this Brand New GNOME App

I suck at word games.

Scrabble, spelling bees, and crosswords are certainly not my cup of tea.

But I know people who are crazy about these games. People who like to spend their tea time solving crossword puzzles.

You’ll love this new GNOME app if you are one of those cruciverbalists.

Crosswords: GNOME app for solving crossword puzzles

As reported by LWN, longtime GNOME contributor Jonathan Blandford is developing a new crossword puzzle game for Linux users. It’s called Crosswords, no surprises there.

There are a few puzzles provided by the game. In addition to that, you can download and play puzzles from popular news outlets like Atlantic, Guardian, etc. You can also open .ipuz and .puz files to play the puzzles you have downloaded or created.

distribution has Flatpak support enabled, you can install it using the following commands.

Add the Flathub repository first.

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub

Install the package now.

flatpak install flathub org.gnome.Crosswords
flatpak uninstall org.gnome.Crosswords

Press Y when you are asked to confirm.

Wordle, 2048, Sudoku, Mahjong, or even the classic Solitaire game are there for you when you want to kill some time to exercise your brain.

Tiny games like these do not require heavy graphics and system resources. It’s good to see one more addition to the list of such games.
