Brendan Emmett Quigley's "Year-End Review" is the last AVCX puzzle of 2018, and is 2/5 difficulty.
The solution file to Liz Gorski's meta contest from last week is also attached. We got 274 responses, almost all correct. The winners, chosen at random (tho aptly enough, both turned out to be couples), are Michael and Susan Schall and Sue and Dan White. Each gets their choice of prizes.
Finally, just to say again how much we appreciate you solving our stuff, and we really look forward to sharing what's on offer in 2019 // supporting great new projects, from an upcoming, super-impressive Francis Heaney meta to two world debuts this winter to several guest puzzles to the launch of Inkubator, and lots more.
Happy new year!!
Ben and the AVCX crew
