Stretch goals: The Conundrucopia

I mentioned that there's a special section in the Maze of Games. Here's what it is.

The Conundrucopia is a section of awesome Victorian-era puzzles by your favorite puzzlemakers. To get them, I had the Gatekeeper lock them in cages until they wrote puzzles for my entertainment. I will let them out one at a time, as we reach certain stretch goals. The list of puzzlemakers includes myself, Gaby, Thomas Snyder, Patrick Berry, Eric Harshbarger, Ken Jennings, Scott Kim, and many, many others. You can see their names in the video below.

So if you'd like to see those awesome puzzlemakers in the book, please consider pledging. Also, they keep saying they would like to be set free. You know how puzzle people get.

      The hardbacks and the PDFs (which everybody at $20+ gets) will contain the Conundrucopia. Because of some of the puzzle content, it may not be possible to include that in the ebook. If it turns out to be, we will include it for ebook backers.

      Actually, it says the Conundrucopia will be in the PDF and only available to Hardback backers. Does that mean the PDF for the 13 Coins won't contain the Conundrucopia?

      Sorry, just read the main page.

      Can you please clarify who will be getting the extra puzzles. I presume it's everybody from 13 Coins and up but just wanted to check.
