I gave this as a gift to two of my fellow crossword aficianados and it's awesome. It'll take at least a couple years to finish without having to foreit every major activity in their lives.

I gave this crossword as a gift to my husband. We did a few sections of it together before losing interest. You definitely need a big wall where you can hang up the crossword pieces because otherwise it is just a bunch of smaller crosswords with clues that are not very easy to look up. Because there are SO many clues, the book is huge and it can take a very long time to find the one that you are looking for. Hanging it up doesn't solve that problem but it does increase the novelty. The crossword itself is several separate sheets of paper that need to be attached together so that you can hang it up. The clues themselves vary between Monday - Sunday level difficulty, with the majority about midway between.

I realize that the name of this crossword puzzle is "World's Largest Crossword Puzzle", but it is REALLY BIG. We pinned up 1/8 of the puzzle on a wall, and it took up the entire wall.

My husband and I LOVE crossword puzzles, but we realized that part of why we love them is the satisfaction of figuring out the underlying theme of the puzzle, and actually completing it. You don't get that with this puzzle.

Perfect gift for that ugly wall. Our college age kids have been picking away at this puzzle for four months, so far. It's Huge!

I am so excited to laminate this (it comes in smaller pieces that will be perfect for the laminating machine) and hang it on the wall of my gifted English classroom! I have no idea how long it will take the kids to complete the puzzle--they're not kidding when they say it's incredibly huge with thousands of clues--but I know that they will relish the challenge!

Bought as a gift. They love it but can't find a wall big enough to fit the whole thing! Shipped fast.

I have only worked on 1/4 of one of the 6 huge sheets and have found the same answers multiple times. While the black squares appear symmetrical across the whole puzzle, it does not follow crossword puzzle standard of each letter being used in both directions so many words may have only a couple letters intersecting with opposite direction. The only appeal of this puzzle is its sheer size.

very small font, maybe i should have read the small print, maybe to use as a table cloth rather than a wall mounted activity

Bad, bad, bad, bad. This puzzle caused my autistic son to flip out and burn our house down. Product came with no warning about that.
