INTELLIGENCE ISN'T INTANGIBLE

Tell the world - I eXceL

Indian Crossword League, IXL in short, is a premier individual crossword solving championship of India.

The league is an individual crossword solving competition played in a round-robin league format. It has a total of 10 weekly Online Rounds of crossword puzzles open to all where the participants have to solve the crossword within a stipulated time. The evaluation of the same is done on two bases: time and accuracy. The participant who takes the least time in submitting the most accurate solved puzzle tops the table and this is how ranking is done. This way every week a leader-board is formed at the end of every weekly round. After the conclusion of all the 10 weekly rounds, the top 20 are invited to participate at an offline National Grand Finale.

"I congratulate Extra-C for recognising the benefits of crosswords and taking the initiative to launch this contest. By doing so, the organisers have provided a platform to inculcate a sense of competition in a pursuit which hitherto has been in individual domain."
