Puzzle contest!

Post by Andrew Feist » Wed Feb 01, 2012 9:11 pm

I'm running a puzzle contest over at my blog -- mostly word puzzles with a little bit of logic thrown in.

Entry: Donations to a local (to me) charity, or just ask for the puzzles.

Prizes: Two ThinkGeek gift certificates from a random draw of all correct entries.

Deadline: Feb 14th. (Yes, there may be a theme involved.)

Gets the Reams thumbs-up. Very nicely designed, and accessible for people who suck at puzzles (me).

I would add to the above "...and a fair amount of general knowledge."

Yeah, I can see that. I had tried to keep the trivia-y clues to a minimum, but the structure of the overall set adds some GK back (and I wasn't able to avoid the trivia completely). Some of it might be harder in the UK than the US as well.
