What's your favourite of the two?

I like word searches and I'm really fast at them. Cross words are hard for me.

I also like word searches, the best. They're easier for me, to do.

Crosswords. I prefer puzzles that are harder for me.

As long as there is a theme - it doesn't matter which.
Themeless things leave me doing a puzzling jig.

Crosswords. I'm rarely able to complete one, but I enjoy doing what I can. I always have trouble with clues about celebrities.

I much prefer crosswords. I seem to have an issue with word searches, for whatever reason. I do enough hidden object games that you think I'd be decent at them, but I can almost never find the words.

I prefer crosswords because they make me think. I don't enjoy the ones with celebrity trivia, but put the sciences in there and I will solve it!

Word searches are too easy, but they help when I can't concentrate. I do a lot of foraging, and I find that my brain really really REEEEALLY likes to look for things.

Sudoku.

Crossword puzzles are hard because I don't know any of the trivia and facts, so I can never finish them. Word searches are just plain boring.

I like both, but I tend to do better at word searches. I excel at some crosswords, but for harder ones, I would use Google or a thesaurus for help (I'm aware that this is cheating - please don't judge). I also like how some word searches and crosswords have a theme or gimmick that makes it even more fun and challenging.

I prefer picross, a.k.a. nonograms, above anything else.

Word searches are too boring.

Crosswords are better because they can involve knowledge, and or puns, and or other angles. So if one angle fails you can go at it another way. Not that I actually compete many of them.

Word searches, definitely. I have never, ever been able to finish a crossword puzzle.
