If you don't know, today is both Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah. It doesn't happen very often. in fact, it won't happen again for another 77,798 years or 57 years, depending on who you believe. In any event, it's a cause for celebration and there's a new puzzle in the Year of Puzzles to commemorate it.
So open up the Puzzazz app and check out Denver, 4:30 PM (that's roughly sundown today in Denver). If you're solving offline, visit http://puzzazz.com/yearofpuzzles as always. Of course, the puzzle's a bit unusual. For a little extra fun, see if you can guess its significance before you read the story.
But wait, there's more ...
Besides turkey and puzzles, there's another holiday tradition for Thanksgiving. It's the Black Friday sale, of course!
And we're celebrating it with a sale that starts today and runs through what's now called Cyber Monday (and, no, we really don't understand that name either). To start, you can get two free Logic Crossword books just for using the Puzzazz app on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch anytime between now and Monday. That's a deal that's too good to pass up. If you have friends who don't yet own the Year of Puzzles, they'll get two coupons for free puzzle ebooks, each up to a $5 value, if they buy it this weekend. And, we've got a BOGO (that's buy-one-get-one-free) sale on every other puzzle ebook. Buy any other ebook and you'll get a coupon for a second book of the same or lesser value. Yes, we love you!
IMPORTANT: You must be using Puzzazz 3.0 or higher and signed into Puzzazz in order to get the free books and receive coupons. For complete details head on over to http://www.puzzazz.com/blackfriday
But wait, there's even more ...
