Cryptic crosswords are particularly popular in the United Kingdom, where they originated, Ireland and in several Commonwealth nations, including Australia, Canada, India, Kenya, Malta, New Zealand, and South Africa. In Poland similar crosswords are called "Hetman crosswords". ' Hetman' , a senior commander, and also the name for a queen in Chess, emphasises their importance over other crosswords. For the most part, they are an English-language phenomenon, although similar puzzles are popular in a Hebrew form in Israel (where they are called tashbetsey higayon"Logic crosswords") and (as Cryptogrammen) in Dutch.
