    Default Crossword generator

    Hello everyone,

    I'm looking for some free software that can generate crosswords.

    I've been browsing on the net for a while but I'm afraid I can't find anything worthwhile.

    Could anyone recommend something?

    I use puzzlemaker* a lot. Given the same data, you can get it to make new puzzles (hit the <back> button to get the new <Generate puzzle> screen) until you get one that looks right. Then, print it out, and voil.

    PS - very similar URL: DiscoverySchool's Puzzlemaker allows kids to make crossword puzzles online.

    The link I gave lets you generate wordsearch puzzles as well. The default size is rather daunting (15x15), so I always set it to the length of my longest word.
