The Crypt is a proposed collection of twelve brand-new cryptic crosswords by puzzle creator Patrick Berry.
Created by

Patrick Berry

240 backers pledged $7,397 to help bring this project to life.

The Crypt has reached its goal!

My sincere thanks to all of my backers for making The Crypt a reality. Rest assured that I'm working diligently on the remaining puzzles, and hope to get them to you as early in April as possible.

When the funding period is over, I'll send my $40-and-up backers a complete list of my available Sterling books to choose from.

On a side note: If you don't already know about Mike Selinker's intriguing "Maze of Games" (a Kickstarter project to produce a handsomely-illustrated puzzle novel), it's well worth a look. I'll be constructing a puzzle for its "Conundrucopia."

Thanks again, everyone!

      Great news! Will there be any "stretch goals" (eg. an extra block-style cryptic if we reach $5000, an extra variety cryptic if we reach $6000, etc.)?

      Thanks, Patrick! And congratulations!
