Welcome to the online version of ‘Are you well-worded’.  The original crossword first appeared in the hard copy edition of the Tabloid in Volume 3 and continued thereafter in volumes 3 and 4.  With the migration of the contest to our online portal, the name ‘Are you well-worded’, is being replaced with ‘The ASAS Word Contest.’  The ASAS Word Contest will be published each month.

Participants who started off will continue their accumulation of points based on the following points scale:
