Cracker Pack #16
I’ll have a new post up on the MAD front page soon with more to say about movies, puzzles, and the site. Really. In the meantime, let me bring to your attention the 16th—and final!—installment in the MAD Gram Cracker puzzle series. I have enjoyed playing around with the form and seeing what I could cook up each month. I do hope that you’ve enjoyed them too on the solving end.
The December set is at the usual spot, the MAD Puzzles page.
One last note, a hearty and sincere “thank you” to Dan Feyer, the two-time reigning champ of the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, who has provided invaluable service over the past year-plus test-solving the puzzles before they went live. Thanks, Dan. You are now released from duty.
Cracker Pack #13
Feeling lucky? Here’s #13 (scroll down).
Though the site has been dormant—on hiatus, for the time being—the puzzles continue, and will through the end of the year.
Cracker Pack #12
I have been busy with other busy-ness, and sorry for the lack of posts here and on the front page. Meanwhile, the puzzles continue. You can find the pair for August here.
The new puzzles for July are here. Find the link to MAD Puzzles in the right sidebar and that’ll take you there. (WordPress has a glitch of some sort and till I figure it, no links—or anything else, for that matter.)
Yes, we have a link.
Cracker Pack #10
You may have noticed a lull around here lately. The staff is working to fix that, and we hope to have more news soon. Meanwhile, the puzzles keep a-comin’. Get yours at the MAD Puzzles page.
Cracker Pack #8
Hard to tell these two apart.
Still, they’re puzzles,
Identical puzzles and you’ll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike —
You can lose your mind,
When puzzles are two of a kind.
There is a reason the Gram Crackers for April are a few days early. Find out more at the MAD Puzzles page.
Sad news today, and little time to say more than this: she was one of the biggest stars in the history of movies. Elizabeth Taylor died this morning, and she leaves behind many great moments, the best of which will outlive us all.
