When I said I had other kinds of puzzles in the pipeline, I meant it. It's just that…well, I'm still writing clues for a cryptic, I'm still gridding two Marching Bands puzzles, and I need to edit the Some Assembly Required for taste. If I had something else ready for prime time, I'd post it, but sadly, I don't.
A day late, I'm afraid. I blame…oh, let's say the heat. Yeah.
In other news, I have made hints available for A Banner Occasion, so if you're stuck a puzzle or two, you might be able to get a nudge. I will likely be posting one more round of hints before I make the solutions available, but you can also feel free to use the contact form to ask for hints on any of the puzzles.
I was about to post Pathfinder #4 when I noticed I hadn't yet gotten to #3. I guess that means I have a buffer of unposted puzzles again?
ETA (6/30): There was an error in the grid; there is no entry #27. I have corrected the error and uploaded a new file. Thanks to sueonview for catching the error.
ETA (7/2): There was an error in the clues; the entry labelled 18W should instead go south. I have corrected the error and uploaded new files. Thanks to sueonview and Anonymous for catching the error.
I've been putting so much time into the extravaganza I posted on Thursday, A Banner Occasion, that I haven't had the chance to format a regular puzzle for the weekend. So instead, I will give you a taste of that extravaganza, in case you haven't seen it already. Here is "Flags of Our Fathers," which is a variety cryptic. I won't say much about the gimmick in this puzzle, except that it leads to an eight-letter word as the answer. I will post the solution some time in the future, so as not to give away the puzzle answer for those who are working on the extravaganza. Happy solving!
Sorry for being a day late; I just moved into a new apartment and didn't have internet access until today. But I also want to give you something to look forward to: on Thursday, June 14, I will be releasing a 13-puzzle extravaganza for Flag Day. Mark your calendars!
