I've been doing crosswords all my life. The cryptograms in the newspaper have always been fun to me but a distant second to the crossword until I tried cryptograms online. It's something about not having to fill in all of the letters, just once each as you get them, that makes the experience so much more enjoyable. Doing them by hand is like work. Also, it is rewarding to see how much easier it gets with time.

For me it was in my Senior English class in high school where our assignment was to read Edgar Allen Poe's "Gold Bug" (a cryptogram was introduced here). I was fascinated by this idea and have been solving Cryptograms ever since (and I won't even tell you how many years that has been, lol)....
