We’re pleased to announce that we’re expanding our entertainment offerings with the launch of WP Games. This new section of our Web site, at games.washingtonpost.com, will offer dozens of interactive games, puzzles and quizzes. Best of all? Playing won’t cost you a dime.

Our roster of offerings includes arcade games, word games, card games and strategy puzzles. Like letters? Race the clock to form words with Spellbound. Got an eye for detail? Match tiles in Mahjongg or hunt through a Word Search. The visually inclined can try a Jigsaw, while card fans can play Spider Solitaire and Pool.

And the favorites you’ve played on washingtonpost.com for years are still here: CricklerSudoku and our three popular puzzles — the Daily Crossword from Bob Klahn and CrosSynergy; the Sunday Crossword by Merl Reagle; and the Post Puzzler from Peter Gordon and Fireball Crosswords.

Our new interactive offerings are the work of online games developer Arkadium. They’re all Flash-based, so you’ll need to be sure you’ve installed and updated your Adobe Flash Player before you get started. If you need assistance along the way, check out our Help page orFAQs.

Each game is free. Many can be printed to take on the road with you. And we’re looking forward to making them accessible to mobile devices in the future.

We hope you’ll have fun exploring this new section. Ready to play?Game on.
