    How Kryss is played

    You receive five letters each turn, then strive to place the letters in the crossword within a minute. There are several ways of out-scoring your opponent, including significant bonuses for completing words, for getting key letters right or for using all your five letters within a round.

    Then again: it might just pay off to keep one of the crucial letters for later use – when the stakes are higher.

    Why "Clue in the Box" style of crosswords?

    Our innovative approach to crossword puzzles integrates the 'clue in the box' style, where clues are seamlessly incorporated within the puzzle itself rather than being listed separately.

    This unique solution allows us to display both the clues and words on a single phone screen, making our app more user-friendly and simplifying the puzzle-solving process.

    Old-school Scandinavian style

    Inspired by the classic crosswords found in Scandinavian newspapers and media, we embarked on a journey as word game enthusiasts to create Kryss.

    Our innovation took a leap forward when we experimented with turn-based gameplay and multiplayer. To our surprise, it felt fun and intense, and has led to Kryss as we know and love it today!
