Floor It!

It's been a while, and for that I apologize. Been busy working on the Indie 500 and running a weekly pub trivia and being a family man. Anyway, new meta puzzle for you today, called Romantic Foreplay. It's not a contest, but you can submit the answer to me if you'd like. Or just say hi or tell me that you didn't like the puzzle or whatever. Better yet, come up and do all of those things in person at the tourney. After much hemming and hawing I decided to attend for the fourth year in a row, and even though it's 5:30am and I'm sitting on the floor of Penn Station next to a power outlet writing this and I haven't slept since yesterday morning I'm so glad I decided to make the pilgrimage once again. Super stoked to see y'all there!

Oh, and I'll post the meta answer on the site next Friday. Nudge me if I forget.

The meta answer is something that's a no-no for Christians

Trivial Matters

Been busy lately with a new sorta-puzzle-related project. A few friends and I will be hosting a pub trivia night, beginning this Sunday evening. If you're in the greater Regina area (extremely unlikely), come on out to The Lancaster at 19:00. Anyway, gotta get back to it, so that's all I'll say for now. Enjoy the latest freestyle; it was my submission for the final Post Puzzler themeless contest, but it wasn't picked. I'm reasonably happy with it, though, so I figured it wouldn't be nice to keep it all to myself.

More words, crossed and otherwise, whenever I feel like it.

Trigger Warning

Happy holidays everybody. I posted a pretty tough meta puzzle last week, and between then and yesterday morning 21 answers were submitted for the Anny Get Your Gun meta contest puzzle; 19 of them were correct. If you're wondering about the intended answer, head over to the Meta Solutions page.

I randomly selected one of the correct entries, and it turned out to belong to Dominick Talvacchio. You'll recall that I was offering a 2015 indie puzzle subscription as a prize; Dominick made a wise choice (I'm pretty there isn't an unwise one though) and opted for a subscription to Matt Gaffney's Weekly Crossword Contest. Congrats to Dominick and all solvers, and thanks to everyone for taking part! I'm working on another meta right now and I should have it up in the next week or so. Sorry, I work a lot slower now than I used to.
