Guide Review
Heading/Title
Crossword solvers and creators can never have too many reference books at hand. With the coming of the digital age, it's even easier to have a comprehensive library of reference material and it's accessible with the click of a mouse button. The database is divided into two parts; a gazetteer which lists geographic locations and a dictionary which lists words up to 15 letters in length. But it's much better than an ordinary dictionary because it also lists famous names, landmarks, mythological beings, deities, etc. Also, many entries include possible clues taken from actual crosswords. And all 6,000 pages are only a mouse click away. A powerful tool for stumped solvers and wannabe constructors.
