welcome to the Century Club
Last night, The Maze of Games hit an unthinkable $100,000. As novels on Kickstarter go, this is unprecedented territory. So, as the nerds we are, we have two options:
- A) Blow all the money on ruby quartz visors and Millennium Falcons.*
- B) Invest it in trying to make this the best puzzle book of all time.
We're going with Option B. Thanks for making it possible.
Meanwhile, we thought you'd like a look inside the Lone Shark offices last night, when Liz captured the moment Mike and puzzle ninja Gaby got the news. If you think you have the answer to this puzzle, enter it at puzzazz.com/mazeofgames and you'll get our new Century Club badge.
Ask Mike Anything on Reddit
At long last, Mike has joined Reddit. At 2 pm EST on 2/22 (this Friday), Mike will be conducting an AMA ("Ask Mike Anything") on the Reddit IAMA subreddit. If you have any questions for Mike, stockpile them and get ready to have them answered. Fair warning: Mike is having knee surgery the day before, so there's a greater-than-average chance that the answers will be just a little loopy.
Also, in our opinion, this Maze of Games article on the Silicon Valley tech journal site Pando Daily is kind of awesome.
