Life time


Shortz was featured on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel (ep. 254, May 2018). Also in 2018, Shortz appeared in the Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode “The Puzzle Master” as Sam Jepson, a rival puzzler to Vin Stermley.

In May 2018, Shortz was given an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Indiana University, his alma mater.


In March 2016, FiveThirtyEight reported on allegations of plagiarism regarding USA Today editor Timothy Parker’s use of themes, clues, and grids previously published in The New York Times. The Times also reported on the story, in which Shortz is quoted as saying: “When the same theme answers appear in the same order from one publication to the next, that makes you look closer. When they appear with the same clues, that looks suspicious. And when it happens repeatedly, then you know it’s plagiarism.”


On December 18, 2015 he presented the answers on Jeopardy! in the category “The New York Times Crossword”.


In 2013, Shortz lent his name and talents in puzzle writing and editing to a new bimonthly publication entitled Will Shortz’ WordPlay, published by PennyPress.


Shortz resides in Pleasantville, New York, where he works from home. He is an avid table tennis player. In May 2011, with Barbadian champion (and his long-time friend) Robert Roberts, he opened one of the largest table tennis clubs in the Northeast in Pleasantville. In 2012, Shortz set a goal for himself to play table tennis every day for a year, but surpassed his goal, playing for 1000 consecutive days.


He also appeared on an episode of How I Met Your Mother titled “Robots Versus Wrestlers”, which first aired on May 10, 2010 during season 5. He appeared as himself at an upscale dinner party that included Arianna Huffington and Peter Bogdanovich, also playing themselves.

In May 2010, Shortz was given an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana.


In February 2009, Shortz helped introduce the KenKen puzzle into The New York Times.

He appeared in Dinner: Impossible as himself, challenging the chef to create dishes that mimic common English idioms at the annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. The episode aired on May 6, 2009.


He appeared on an episode of The Simpsons titled “Homer and Lisa Exchange Cross Words”, which first aired on November 16, 2008.

Shortz gave the commencement address at his alma mater, Indiana University, in May 2008.


The 2006 documentary Wordplay by Patrick Creadon focuses on Shortz and the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. Various famous fans of his puzzles such as Bill Clinton, Ken Burns, Jon Stewart, Daniel Okrent, Indigo Girls and Mike Mussina appear in the film.


He has said that his favorite crossword of all time is the Election Day crossword of November 5, 1996, designed by Jeremiah Farrell. It had two correct solutions with the same set of clues, one saying that the “Lead story in tomorrow’s newspaper (!)” would be “BOB DOLE ELECTED”, and the other correct solution saying “CLINTON ELECTED”. His favorite individual clue is “It might turn into a different story” (whose solution is SPIRAL STAIRCASE).


Shortz began his career at Penny Press Magazines, then moved to Games magazine for 15 years, serving as its editor from 1989–1993. He has been the crossword puzzle editor for The New York Times since 1993 (the fourth in the paper’s history, following Eugene Thomas Maleska), and has been the puzzle master on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday since the program was started in 1987. He is the founder of the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament (1978), and has served as its director since that time. He founded the World Puzzle Championship in 1992 and is a director of the U.S. Puzzle Team.


Will Shortz grew up and raised on an Arabian horse farm in Crawfordsville, Indiana. He was drawn to puzzles at an early age; in eighth grade he wrote a paper titled “Puzzles as a In years.” (The paper earned him a B+.) At age 13, Shortz wrote to Language on Vacation author Dmitri Borgmann for advice on how to pursue a career in puzzles. He graduated from Indiana University in 1974, and is the only person known to hold a college degree in enigmatology, the study of puzzles. Shortz achieved this by designing his own curriculum through Indiana University’s Individualized Major Program. He also earned a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Virginia School of Law (1977), but did not sit for the bar exam and began a career in puzzles instead.
