Puzzle Notes

Hi friends: 

Byron Walden's puzzle this week, "One Thing on Top of Another," is ... hard. It's labeled 5/5, but 6/5 might be apt. It's a 66-worder, for those keeping count. Might take a minute. Then again, you people always surprise me!

Anyway, good luck, and know that we've got a string of easy (not to say unexciting) themes coming up from Francis, Tyler, and Aimee, and Erik's got another easier-than-average meta in the hopper. Meanwhile, we're gathering some real fine bonus puzzles for the fall and winter.

Don't forget that if you ever have problems receiving your puzzle by email, you can always contact us at, and expect a prompt reply. We do our best to be very responsive to technical issues and everything else!

See ya soon,

Ben and the AVCX crew [, @AVCXWord]
