    Quickest way to get 50 stars in the crossword game is to use a macro tool like TinyTask.

    Set the active tile as the upper left (1 Across/1 Down) and have it click the Hint button indefinitely. The Hint option will add the correct letter and the next time it is pressed (there is a 5 second cooldown per Hint) it will automatically move to the next letter/word/row.

    All you have to do is wait for the crossword to fill up, stop the tool, select the next level and then start the tool up again.
    It takes a while but it's far less taxing than Binging the answers on google if you aren't very good at crosswords.

    Wintr17 Seems to take around 30 minutes a puzzle to do this with a macro. Other benefit of doing it this way is you can have it running without constant supervision.
    This can also work towards

    mrbellek I just got this at 38 stars in Adventure mode, map 1 - so I guess the stars you earn in the sunday pack count too. So if you go for TheSickness' solution for below achievement, those stars count towards this achievement as well.
