Puzzle #34: “Is That Your Final…?”

Posted by on 27th February 2008

Puzzle #34Welcome back once again, for our next installment of “Who Wants a Free Crossword Puzzle?” Since you made it here, we’ll assume you’re a contestant and hand you your prize. (Yes, it’s one of these contests. “Everyone’s a winner!”) This puzzle has been reviewed by our panel of judges, laundered, corrected, and returned with that fresh lemony scent that we love so well. It has also been awarded a rating of “Tuesday” on the classic New York Times scale, so it may prove to be fairly accessible to newcomers, timid souls, and particularly bright house-pets. (Mr. Ed swears he got through it in seven minutes in pen, but I’ve got my doubts.)

As usual, it’s available in multiple formats: minty, fresh Across Lite or a bold, tingly PNG image. Take your pick, and happy solving.

Puzzle #31: “Chain Letter”

Posted by on 6th February 2008

Puzzle #31Welcome again, and happy Wednesday. The title of this week’s puzzle is “Chain Letter”, so you know how it works: if you sent a copy of this post to five of your friends, and they each sent it to five of their friends, and each of them sent it to five friends, then you would probably have annoyed 155 different friends, acquaintances, and complete strangers. Luckily, that’s just the name of the puzzle, not a set of instructions. So let’s just work the puzzle, already, and leave the spam to the professionals. (Seriously folks, chain letters are illegal under U.S. federal law. Don’t take me up on the joke.)

Our panel of dedicated reviewers, all of whom practice proper e-mail etiquette, have inspected this puzzle. They’ve folded, spindled and mutilated it until it was fit for public consumption, and they have pronounced it to be roughly a Thursday level of difficulty. If you feel up to the challenge, you can grab a copy in your favorite format: either Across Lite or a printable PNG image. In either case, no postage should be required.
