Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

Rebecca Goldstein is up this week, with "Reality Checks," at 3.5/5 difficulty. Not to give anything away, but you may be hearing from Rebecca again in the pages of the AVCX before not too long ...

Last week, Lil AVCX ran a puzzle by Darby Ratliff that had no .puz file to use with Across Lite or other digital apps. Classic will be doing the same with its next puzzle, which runs next week. We realize it can be a mild inconvenience to have to use a different digital format, such as .ipuz, or to print a PDF. But sometimes a theme concept is really good, and Across Lite won't support it. We don't want to give up the all-important effort of pushing boundaries in puzzle-making due to the limits of a specific program. We thank you for sticking with us in that regard!
