Bauer Media UK has launched Bigger Better Crosswords, a new title within its growing Puzzles portfolio.

Bauer launches Bigger Better Crosswords

Bigger Better Crosswords will be the third puzzles title Bauer has launched in the last six months.

The company already publishes a number of popular puzzles titles including Take a Break Puzzle, which celebrates its 30th birthday this year and Bigger Better Puzzles, a dedicated large-print mixed puzzle magazine, which launched in January 2021.

An extension to the ‘Bigger Better’ brand, Bigger Better Crosswords is a dedicated large-print crossword title making it inclusive for all readers while featuring fun, high-quality clues, say the publishers.

The monthly 84-page title, priced at £2.50, launched on Thursday 6 May.

Liz Watkinson, Managing Director of Bauer Media UK’s TV Listings, real-life and Puzzles titles commented: “Following on from the successful launch of Bigger Better Puzzles earlier this year we identified a gap in the market for an audience who enjoy crosswords but whose needs are not currently met. Bigger Better Crosswords meets those needs with carefully curated large-print crossword grids which are accessible for all.”

Last year, Bauer Media announced the development of a new free interactive puzzles section on the Take a Break website and content collaborations with Wizarding World and The Alzheimer’s Society.
