Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends:

This week's AVCX+ is from our very own Max Carpenter, and it's got a beautiful grid with a remarkably low word count of just 56(!). It's aptly titled "Reinventing the Wheel", and we're calling its difficulty "Dizzy Dizzy". Max is a film curator, writer, and crosswordsperson based in New York. If you're into the intersection of puzzles and cinephilia, he thinks you should definitely invest in a copy of A24's new puzzle book whenever they're back in stock. Max is on Twitter @solexyoghurt. He also wants to shout out his fellow AVCXers Brooke Husic, Chris Piuma, and Sid Sivakumar, as well as everyone else helping out this coming Saturday to put on the best puzzle tournament there is: Lollapuzzoola. Definitely either attend in person or virtually if you can. It's always a supreme blast.

We're taking our regularly scheduled time off next week, but we'll be back in September with more themeless fun. Enjoy and be well!
