I’m not sure why, but today’s crossword feels like a bit of a return to classic form for me. Nothing too fancy; just a simple theme in a 13×13 grid. You’ve got this under control.
In other puzzling news, Matt Gaffney (the genius behind the Weekly Crossword Contest) has announced a new project: “Murder by Meta – A Crossword Puzzle Mystery.” Head over to Kickstarter now to get in on the action! I know it’ll be nothing short of fantastic!
Last week you told me what you’re thankful for. (Some of you mentioned me; I’m flattered!) Today, I’m thankful for non-square grids. We’ve got a little bit of rectangular love going on today. Why? Well, I’m trying to fit the last few Kickstarter backer entries into puzzles before the year is out, and this seemed like a nice way to do it.
And of course, the Lizzie McGuire reference is entirely my own doing. Happy Chanukah!
Time to talk turkey: what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Let me know in the comments.
