About Me Puzzle Whiz
Comments about Puzzle Pen™:
Crossword puzzles need to be completed using pencils; pencils do not work well on certain types of paper. Using a pen and correction fluid is time consuming. So I thought I had found the solution with my purchase. However, the pen did not write smoothly on newspaper, and when I erased, it left a smudge. The ink barely showed; I had to go over my answers to see the letters. Back to correction fluid!
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

Sounded like a good idea
from Albany, NY
I do at least one crossword puzzle a day. I get teased a lot because I use white out. I thought this pen would save me. It did not.
from Chateaugay, NY
This is a great idea- if only it worked. I bought 2 of these, one for me, and one for my husband. We both like to do crossword puzzles, so I was excited to get them. Unfortunately the ink skips and doesn't write smoothly. It does erase well. But you have to go over and over the letters to make them legible.
GREAT IDEA IF IT WORKED
By G Ma
crossword puzzlesthe idea was great It skips terriblyId preferred black ink
Don't buy this pen
from San Diego
I was excited to get this pen as I do daily puzzles. This pen skips and writes so faintly that I gave up right away and used my usual ball point pen. Good thing I don't have to do a lot of erasing anyway.
I use this for crosswords and circle a word puzzles. If I make a mistake I can redo the answer.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pen dry upon arrival
By Puzzle Fans
from West Jefferson, OH
The pen arrived but was dry of ink. A call to Miles Kimball and we asked for a replacement refill. They sent us another complete pen, nice gesture, unfortunately it too was dry. Another call and they agreed to send us a refill. That was over a week ago and still no refill....Beware...
Perfect Puzzle Pen
from Eau Claire, WI
I love doing puzzles in ink but like most I'm not perfect and had used white-out (that's how much I like using ink!). I love this pen and am buying one for my dear friend who also does puzzles in ink. We're not perfect but we're perfect for each other!
Did not like
I love crossword puzzles and this was an awesome idea. If ink wrote better and darker, it would be usable. As it is, I gave it away.

I like the idea but the ink is not consistant, and need to write over to see the letters
