Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

Adam Simpson and Becca Gorman have this week's Classic puzzle, halfway-hard at 2.5/5. A nifty theme that was extremely fun to workshop. Big thanks to Adam and Becca.

Adam (he/him) is a video game designer living in San Francisco's historic Castro neighborhood. He enjoys playing weird board games, watching campy horror movies, and cuddling with his black cat. His 15 minutes of fame was when he won the grand prize on "Wheel of Fortune," which ultimately led him down the path to puzzle construction.

Becca (she/her) is a final year social work student living in Boston. She currently works as a therapist in a prison and has seen how beloved crosswords are to some there! She enjoys women's soccer, reading (when not in school'), and cooking.
