Puzzle Notes

Dear subscribers: 

Aimee Lucido is up with one of her more challenging puzzles, a 4/5 entitled "Turn-Based Game." 

Please come say hi if you'll be at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament in Brooklyn this weekend. As promised, we'll have a special, six-part meta puzzle on Saturday night. The same puzzles will also be sent out as a free bonus to subscribers who aren't at the tournament.

We also have yet another bonus coming later this week. It's a bonus celebrity cryptic collaboration between singer/songwriter Wesley Stace and Francis Heaney! Full details will come with the puzzle on Thursday, but you can start feeling excited now.

Once again, if you have questions about resubscribing, or need to pay by a method other than those available on (credit card and Paypal), just drop us a line at
