This month’s YES! Crossword takes inspiration from an indomitable force in many people’s lives: moms. Just in time for Mother’s Day, the puzzle features famous and fictional women across time and media. You can share the puzzle with the moms in your life, race others to see who finishes first, or, if you’re a mom, hole up in a quiet spot and enjoy some solo mental stimulation. If you prefer to play on paper, you can download the PDF here.
