Thanks to all who gave their ideas for different puzzle types. There were multiple calls for Some Assembly Required, which is the one form that I’m the least familiar with. I think I’ve done one of those in my life — I rarely print-and-play puzzles anymore, and it’s a form that obviously requires it. I’ll definitely give a crack at constructing them, but don’t expect those for a while. Someone mentioned Riding the Waves, which is an awesome idea — the most Rows Garden-esque puzzle type, in my humble opinion. I clicked with those right away, so I might give that a try here pretty soon. Basically, stay tuned — I’ll fiddle with some of these various types and keep honing my cryptic skills, and I’ll hopefully post some of my efforts here soon.
Meanwhile, I hope you all caught Patrick Berry’s beautiful Rows Garden in this Saturday’s Wall Street Journal. If not, get to it! And I’d like to plug Trip Payne’s upcoming meta puzzle suite, which you can sign up for via Kickstarter. Trip’s already raised enough money to fund the project, so it’s definitely a go, and if you know any of Trip’s work (he’s got three Rows Gardens on his site, Triple Play Puzzles), you know you’re in for a fun ride.
Enjoy #60! Can’t believe we made it this far.
