The Puzzle at the Château in Beijing
As the Year of Puzzles heads towards the final meta puzzles, we take one last trip out of the US, to Beijing, well known for its table tennis, puzzles, and French architecture.
And who better to give you a puzzle in Beijing than famed table tennis player Will Shortz? We've heard that he knows a thing or two about puzzles, too, seeing as he's the crossword editor of the New York Times, a post he's held for more than twenty years, and he's been NPR's Sunday Puzzlemaster even longer than that.
If you like the puzzles that Will presents on NPR, then you'll really like this puzzle. It's simple in concept, not quite as simple to solve as those heard on-air. And, then, seeing as how this isn't radio, there's a fun visual twist to the puzzle. Here's a bit of the puzzle:
This puzzle contains words which contain the letters C H I N A in some order. Figure out where the letters go in the boxes to make four words.
Open up the Puzzazz app to solve 1:30 AM, Beijing. If you're solving offline, visit http://www.puzzazz.com/yearofpuzzles as always to download the PDF file.
