Thank you for subscribing to the American Values Club xword! Your first puzzle, by Aimee Lucido, is attached.
Since you're paying for the puzzle now, we want your experience to be as fun and convenient as possible. Please let us know what kinds of improvements you would like to see. (For now, the comments section on the Kickstarter page is a great place to make your voice heard).
American Values Club constructor Francis Heaney has designed a handsome layout for the weekly PDFs, and in response to some of you who have asked for difficulty ratings, each puzzle will now have between one and five stars so you know what kind of challenge you're in for. The puzzle will also be sent in .puz format, which you can solve on your computer using the free program Across Lite, along with a solution PDF as well.
Many of you have asked about solving in Phone, iPad, and Android apps. For the time being, the puzzles remain freely available on those platforms, so you shouldn't experience any disruption. Eventually, to solve in apps you will use a login and password, which you will be able to do as long as you have an active subscription.
