OriginEdit

Arthur Wynne was a British born inventor who moved to America and created the modern crossword puzzle. Originally called a “Word-Cross Puzzle”, Wynne’s format consisted of a diamond that used both vertical and horizontal boxes, with the word “FUN” already filled in.

EffectsEdit

When looked into, turns the mind into a puzzle that can only be solved by cheating. The challenge usually consists of several smaller, interrelated quests that depend upon each other to complete. Most varieties focus around wordplay and logical reasoning, although more complicated types such as calculation and intensive deduction do appear. Failure to complete their task will result in the person being unable to regain connection to their physical body, trapping their mind.
