A smaller version of the common crossword problem is the Mini Crossword game. It has a smaller grid and a series of puzzle-solving clues. The goal of the game is to fill the grid with words that correspond to the provided hints.
In a Mini Crossword, the grid frequently measures between 3x3 to 5x5, and has fewer squares than a conventional crossword puzzle. The clues offered are typically brief, so figuring out the intended term requires quick thought.
