Good afternoon everyone,

I know the endless cycle of news, features and sport can become tiring - and that’s why The News is today launching a brand new Puzzles service just for digital subscribers.

Every day we’ll update our website with a set of four new games for you to sink your teeth into. Two crosswords, cryptic and quick, sudoku and a wordwheel.

Sign up to our daily newsletter

Sound right up your street? If you’re a subscriber to The News you’ve already got access to the first four games today, all you need to do is click here to play.

But if you’re not, now may be the perfect time to see what a subscription is all about.

It’s just £4 for your first two months and you’ll get unlimited access to all our online news stories, puzzles and our mobile app, which brings a digital version of the paper to your phone or tablet every day. These are your options - and you can cancel at any time.

Puzzlers can also join our new dedicated Facebook group, where we’ll be publishing each day’s puzzles and the answers for the previous day’s games. It’s also a great place to meet like-minded Portsmouth News puzzle players.
