Crosswords are by their very nature based upon logic. and patterns. Often. the successful completion of one clue will then serve as an indicator as to the next piece of the puzzle. perhaps offering a letter of the next word. Through a combination of deduction. logical reasoning and good old fashioned guesswork. the intrepid crossword puzzle solver can at the very least hazard a guess as to what the answer maybe. However. the internet crossword puzzle solvers are infinitely more powerful and accurate than we humans could ever possible hope to be. and will be able to process numbers and patterns at an exponentially swift rate with unparalleled accuracy.
On occasion, the puzzle author may use some little tricks, like using numbers or symbols to complete parts of words or phrases. Solving a puzzle like this will require a little creativity on your part. For instance, a puzzle may have the word "arrow" in each theme related clue, and that may indicate a need to put an actual arrow where these clues intersect. Sometimes, you may have to replace a word with a number.
