No, puzzles are not just throwaways. They matter to readers, and they are a primary reason that many people subscribe to The Star and visit the Games & Puzzles page on KansasCity.com.
That means The Star has a responsibility to make sure they’re correct, and I know I will always hear about it when there’s a mistake.
In Sunday’s Star TV Plus magazine — a premium product available to home subscribers with the Sunday edition if they want it — the crossword puzzle on Page 16 was printed with a production error that made it impossible to work.
The puzzle will be republished in this Sunday’s Star TV Plus. In the meantime, you can download a two-page, printable PDF of the puzzle here.
