The classic crossword puzzle that has been on the internet for over a decade and counting has found a new home on the social network, Facebook.
The latest update of the popular online puzzle comes from the Australian-based puzzle game company Mamamoo, which has been using the crossword format for more than a decade.
“We love the crosswords because they’re simple to learn and hard to master,” said CEO and co-founder of Mamamuu Matt Smith.
“They’re fun to play and they’re a classic way to think about the world.”
Smith said the team was excited to be able to bring the crosswand back to Facebook, where it’s used by more than 40 million people.
The company has released a new version of the crosswalk, which will be available for purchase in Canada and the United Kingdom later this week.
The update to the original Mamamauo crossword comes after the company’s latest update was released earlier this month.
In that update, the company said it was adding a new puzzle to the website, but didn’t give details about what it would include.
“For now we’re going to continue updating the crosswalks as we have them,” said Smith.
He said the new update would focus on new puzzles, which he hopes will become more popular in the future.
“There’s so much that’s new that we’ve added that we think will help new users keep coming back,” said he.
“The crosswalk puzzle is one of the more popular puzzle types around, and we think we’ve really nailed it in terms of fun and accessibility, and it’s a great fit for the social networks.”
Mamamue is a family-owned puzzle company founded in 2009 by Smith and his brother David.
“It’s not something that’s necessarily easy to learn,” said David Smith.
Smith said they wanted to focus on crosswands that would help people keep their minds engaged.
“Our crosswanders are all about simplicity, and you can learn a lot in about five minutes,” said said Smith, who said they have worked with over 30 puzzle experts and designers to develop the puzzles.
Mamamu is also known for its games, including the popular puzzle game Mamamoos.
Mamauo, which translates as “family”, is based on the word for “family,” and is used in the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries.
“Mamoo has been doing crosswords for over 10 years and we are really excited to bring them back to the world,” said James McPhee, a Mamamua board member.
“I think it’s an excellent fit with Facebook because people love the simplicity and the fun of the puzzle, so we’re really excited about that,” said McPee.
Mamomoo is available in both English and French and has a variety of puzzles that are sold across the company.
Smith and McPiehl are looking to expand the company beyond the Philippines in the coming months.
“Once we do that we can really do more in the Asia Pacific, which is really exciting,” said Dave Smith.
