A Latin Cross Word Puzzle Book, by John Kingsbury Colby.

This good old book is definitely geared toward the parsing-for-Caesar’s-wars crowd, but it’s still fun for those studying Ecclesiastical Latin. I assign these to my students sometimes. (Shhh–don’t tell them these answers are here!)

Nota bene: Even the shortest beginning puzzles here have clues requiring students to have at least a year to a year-and-a-half of Latin behind them, so only use these with your advanced students!
