Puzzle #51: “Escalation”

Posted by on 24th June 2008

Puzzle #51Welcome back.  We’ve got another fine puzzle for you this week, but its theme is a bit different than you may be used to from Beekeeper crosswords.  This is because there are plenty of theme entries, but we aren’t going to make it obvious which ones they are.  There should be enough hints for you to figure it out though.  (Yes, the title of the puzzle is one of those hints.)

What with one thing and another, the difficulty of this puzzle has been adjudged (by our ever faithful panel of experts) to be a Thursday on the NYT challenge scale.  If you feel up to the challenge, you can download it as either an Across Lite file or a printable PNG image.  Happy solving.

Puzzle #49: “TV Gduie”

Posted by on 10th June 2008

There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We can reduce the focus to a soft blur, or sharpen it to crystal clarity. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical.

— The Outer Limits

Puzzle #49Welcome back to everyone out in TV-land.  You may notice if you check your episode guide crossword clues that this week’s sit-com line-up is a bit….twisted.   However, we have confidence that, as always, everything will work out neatly by the end of each 30 minute episode, or at least by the time you fill in 57-down.  Our ever-faithful panel of reviewers have given this puzzle two thumbs up, three glares of annoyance, and 4 groans of agony.  They’ve also rated it as a Wednesday/Thursday level on the venerable NYT difficulty scale.

As usual, you can acquire this puzzle in your choice of formats — either VHS or BETA HD-DVD or Blu-Ray Across Lite or printable PNG file.  Y’all come back now, hear!

Puzzle #48: “A Path to Perfection”

Puzzle #48They say you should write what you know, so that’s what we did.  This puzzle was inspired by our local 60 across — a veritable palace of perfection.  To work the puzzle, you don’t need to be perfect: you just need enough know-how to handle a Wednesday-level crossword, and the ability to click on a download link.  You can even choose between a perfectly elegant Across Lite download or a perfectly elegant printable PDF file.
