The Daily Herald has unveiled a new package of online “micro puzzles” that take just a few minutes to complete and that you can even play on your smartphone.

You can find the new puzzles by clicking here or in the drop-down menu at the top-left of every HeraldNet.com page.

• Seven days a week you’ll find a new mini-crossword that’s quick, easy and fun to solve.

• Three times a week you’ll be able to play Dynamic DoubleCross, a pop culture puzzle. Solve the puzzle to reveal the hidden personality.

• Two days a week, we’ll offer Plus One, a word search game. Find the missing letter and reveal the riddle.

The new puzzles also will appear in print editions of The Daily Herald starting Aug. 2.

Happy solving.
