A Puzzle for Independence (and wrapping up the Year)
We are pleased to announce that everything is in the pipeline to wrap up the Year of Puzzles in the next few weeks. We'll be releasing puzzles at a cadence of about one a week. Here's a rundown of what's coming:
We just released Noon in Independence, a word search by Bruce Leban. Of course, it has some twists. You'll need the latest version of the Puzzazz app, which was released earlier today.
Puzzle #18, the last regular puzzle, is a cryptic crossword by Joshua Kosman and Henri Picciotto, the cryptic crossword constructors for The Nation. This puzzle comes with two sets of clues, for beginners and experts. Your choice.
Next up are the metapuzzles. Originally, we had promised a single metapuzzle. Now there are three, bringing the total number of puzzles to 21. But, wait, how do we resolve the three metapuzzles? That's where the meta-metapuzzle, puzzle #22, comes in. If you want to save the world of puzzles, you'll need to solve it too. It's a fun and quick wrap to the whole shebang.
Envelope Puzzles Update
We have received just two reports of missing envelopes (for backers at the Thinker level and above). Whew! If your envelope didn't arrive or any components inside are missing, please let us know ASAP (see the previous update for details on what's in the envelope).
And, to those who have sent us solving reports and comments, we really appreciate them. We love hearing about your experiences!
